Oh, absolutely no doubt about that.

It does run 11s in the 1/4, though, so it's not like it's slow or anything. Just excessively and unnecessarily silly. 657hp in a RWD car would be a bit faster, too. It's really struggling to put the power down in the drag videos.

For me, it wasn't the top speed as much as the acceleration which shocked me. I've seen the Thrust SSC videos and such and I had a clear image in my head of slow inital acceleration and a long build-up to the top speed. Seeing the rocket sled just take of like that and THEN just loving disappear completely blew my mind.

Not youtube, but Jay Leno talking about an unloved pickup truck, the Corvair Rampside:

http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/video...tml?vid=1115754

I love it when someone digs out a car that was originally unloved, shows it some love and lets it shine for being the slightly oddball idea that it was. Beautiful restoration, too.

EDIT: One thing that I've always wondered about, does Jay actually do any work on his own cars or does he just pay people to do it? He seems more knowledgeable about the mechanical stuff than most car-collecting rich guys, but does he actually get his hands dirty?

Some of it looks pretty dicey legally...

Tearing rear end in a busted beater, AWD donut spare slides, using the grass for overtaking, completely irresponsible driving on a public road, paintball target practice, fireworks AND poorly thought-out jumps? Hell yeah!

My guess is that a whole lot of cheap beer and "ya'll hold my beer and watch this!" was going on behind the scenes, as well

That video is absolute grade-a certified hooning of the highest quality, and those guys are the new Kings of Hoon.

Of course it's highly irresponsible behavior and should never be replicated etc.
