I liked the movie
10 May 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Dragstrip girl is fun drive in type movie. If you like old cars,50's style plot lines of bad girl/ bad guy, then you will love this movie.It takes you back to another time,when things seemed to be a little less trouble. It does not insult you with bad languge or body parts that you dont care to see.Classic cars,narrow ties,and boys who still meet the parrents.
