Anyone remember a Ford Bronco Funny Car?
 
Built by Doug Nash back in the 60s?

Yep...I guess it was before they realized that aerodynamics meant something.......That "win on Sunday, sell on Monday" meant a lot back then

Thats probably true or maybe they just wanted to try something wild and crazy knowing it wasn't going to be the best both are probably true.

As I recall... (we are in trouble now!)... it was competitive.

One advantage would be that it was had to be very light! I am pretty sure it was an injected smallblock Ford on Nitro.

The light weight... due to the limited tires back then... would allow it to hook up and run really good on the first half of the track. In other words, it would E.T. very well. Top speeds are nice... but E.T. wins!
