FUN WITH FUNNY CARS

In light of the recent developments in the drag racing world, the Quizzter will make no attempt at levity this month. Instead, he wishes to redirect the quizzing public's attention to funny car racing, as it was in years gone past. Back when there were a couple of hundred more of them in action on a given weekend. Oh, it wasn't any safer in the"good old days", but it sure seemed like everybody had more fun. So put on your nostalgia caps, ferret out the web site, 70sfunnycars.com, and dig deep for those answers.
