Kinda cool but mostly plotless film about a guy's desire to become a top-fuel driver back when there were still a few front-engine cars running in the class. Lotsa shots of Lions, Irwindale, etc. in the mid-6 second, 220mph days. Other drag classes too, including pre-wing altereds, and the old twin-engined Freight Train gas rail.
Mostly car shots, with just enough plot so your girl wouldn't go to sleep from total boredom if you took her to it.
For some more great old drag action, be sure to check out the film "Old School Drag Races" too.
