Kinda neat .. not sure what one would do with it other than look at it

Someone here ended up with an old 69 Camaro boded funny car and they put a mellow BB chevy motor in it and used it for bracket racing. I think they just made it go slow enough that they didn't need to update the chassis. It was neat to look at, and just fast enough to be fun without being dangerous.

If it is then it is a lot more wrinkled now... whistling


The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

There are plenty of historic or vintage drag racing events around the country that do include cars of that vintage.

Cool car, but I think it's a stretch to try to tie it to Shirley. From the images I looked at the spoilers are different, the front is shorter than Shirley's car.

Shirley’s FC was destroyed by fire at one time. I think that is when she switched to top fuel.
