    A friend ran a series of cars named Insanity.

    Cannonball Express - Mike Cannon, '60s corvette M/P. On the hood was painted a rat having enthusiastic carnal relations with a big piece of swiss cheese, and the caption "When you've got them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow".

    Probably, there was a 57 Sedan Delivery that a lady drove at our local track back in the 60's called "Drag Hag".

    A few more I like that ran locally were the "Throttlebender", "Dream Chaser", and "Double Dragon".
