The Pontiac looks like someone said it looked trashy and now feels bad.
All of those drag specials are all so insane. The only one we've had remotely recently was the Dodge Demon, and that was relatively civilized compared to the classics.
Civilized because it has air conditioning. It truly is insane in it's own right with 900 hp and capable of 9s. These above, in factory trim, ran mostly in the 11s. Some of that because tire technology has come a very long way.
Tire tech, brake tech, suspension tech.
Can you imagine trying to drive that 63 max wedge on those pizza cutter bias plys?
