For the past few days, the Hot Rod Reunion has been happening over in Bakersfield, California, and Monday was the final heat for the nostalgic funny car drag races. This is a venue that usually takes to Japanese car fans about as well as a quilting bee to Sturgis, but we thought it was amusing to see Bucky Austin’s Plymouth Arrow (aka Mitsubishi Lancer Celeste) stretched out and flattened in funny car style. Not only that, but this particular Plym went home with the title. For an Australian Celeste-ial bodied drag racer click here. For a Datsun 280ZX, click here.
