Shelby Dragonsnake. Probably this is the only drag car that ever run on old Laguna Seca circuit. I'm still looking for the the lap times. It has standard 3.54 final but most of this car are fitted with 4.89 final. It can reach 11.6 @ 120 mph from source Street Stock running class on 1964. Not bad for 300 Hp car.
