Flashy, arrogant, and over-the-top funny cars dominated drag racing popularity from the late 1960s to 1970s. Experiencing drag races were a right-of-passage to adulthood for young fans back in the day. Mainstay floppers like the L.A. Hooker and the Hawaiian will forever fuel our veins with the nitro-powered memories of our favorite drivers battling for glory every race day in head-to-head combat. The funny car heroes of yesteryear are immortalized in Auto World’s Legends of the Quarter Mile.

• Painted traditional Fighting Irish green with blue and gold trim, the new
Camaro carries forward the legacy of their NHRA nationals winning fueler

• The new Fighting Irish 1971 Camaro is powered by a 426 cubic inch tunnel
port Mopar HEMI, putting power to the ground through a Ford
Detroit Locker running 4:10 gears

the USA on the professional circuit

years until Tim Beebe retired from racing.
