Have watched this a dozen times!! Gearheads or anyone interested in drag racing will appreciate this old flick! Lots of neat footage from the 70s and a great story. Tons of great quotes from Jim Dunn - just a regular down to earth guy who works as a firefighter and spends his summer vacations drag racing a funny car! (Before it was all about who has the most money!) Some funny video of his kids "drag racing" their (now vintage) bikes, complete with Christmas tree, timing, parachutes, and exhibition runs - all in the mall parking lot. (They took it quite seriously, but it's pretty funny now.) This video is gonna cause you a lotta smiles.
