Sure, I'd love to take my car to a track, but I don't have a bottomless wallet--or the time to go out to a track.
And don't tell me what to do w/my car.. i'll drag it if I want, you do what you want with it.
Are all of you 17 years old and needing to prove your manhood?
If you are to race these cars do so on a track with proper safety precautions, so you can experience what this car was truly designed for!
Stop-light dragraces are not what this piece of motorsport history was made for.
Besides..I could probably beat you with the 1976 AMC Matador station wagon that I drove in high shcool in a drag race.
I beat many late 80s camaros and that was with 6 people on board! (bigass v8 tweaked by my dad helped a bit)
