A RETURN TO AN AGE OF INNOCENSE

What with all the bad karma floating around on the current nitro funny car scene, The Quizzter thought it was as good a time as any to roll back the clock a bit. So return if you will to the late 1960's and early 1970's, when life was simpler and the funny cars a lot slower, speed and ET wise. You'll notice we didn't say safer. Ah,there goes that bad karma creeping in again. Brush it aside for now, and enjoy the quiz. As always,no hints on where to look this stuff up!
