      ...it would be more like stuffing a 250hp electric motor, couple dozen batteries and a Ford 9-inch rear end into it and going 110 in the quarter! (both of the cars in the ads are semi-electric cars)

      Google "Electric Datsun 1200" and you'll find links to a sorta-network of crazies building giant-killer electric dragsters out of lightweight 70's econoboxes, the Datsun guys have the most elaborate web site, there's pix of their car, plus their main competition, which is a 72 Pinto with the same sort of fork-lift motor and similar performance...there's also an Electro-Bug dragster there too...(I don't know how to cut and paste a link with a fucking calculator or I'd have posted lynx)
