Fastest Toyota, 600HP Rotary Engine
One of Miami's Best.... My mechanic Tony & his son Joel working on this BAD AZZ 600hp 1970 Toyota Corolla on a Rotary Engine. They said this little beast is a 5.5 to 5.8 sec 1/8 mile car. They also told me that the Corolla on the lift in the background is even nastier than this one.

1966 Volkswagen Beetle with 2187cc IDA motor 4;37 close 3&4 gear box Volkswagen bug drag racing on the 1/8 mile drag strip racelegal.com.
The Volkswagen Type 1, widely known as the Volkswagen Beetle or Volkswagen Bug, is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured automobile of a single design platform anywhere in the world.
The same body appeared during 1966, with a 1,300 cc engine in place of the 1,200 cc engine: it was only in the 1973 model Super Beetle that the Beetle acquired an obviously curved windscreen. The flat windscreen remained on the standard Beetle.

Lower VW Bug body within 6 in of platform #102
I am slowly lowering the VW bug body down over the engine and chassis. I am using 2x4 blocks and all thread to align the body for the fine tuning of the body cuts. It looks like it wil fit fairly well.
