    The caption was Idaho Ski Bums not the vehicle, but, I agree the Edmund and Jones' would/should be the main focus today. :)

    Here's a pretty interesting drag racing video. It starts off with some nice shots from the 60s, but what's really cool is when the video slows down to 1000 frames per second of a dragster right after launch, you can really see the wheels spinning a lot faster than the car is moving and you can see each cylinder firing and helping clean off the tire as it does so.
