While a still a bit more than a stone's throw from the numbers punched out by Hemi-headed Top Fuelers, Ara Arslanian's Bullish Motorsports railjob is aiming for territory occupied by today's nostalgia fuelers, and while the chassis' basic design is similar in conception to Don Garlits' decades-old template for a rear-engined dragster, Arlsanian's car has one important difference: it's powered by a twin-turbo Camry motor. Bullish was the first import team in the 6-second range, and with this machine, they're aiming into the 5s. Any bets on how close small-displacement dragsters with electronic engine management can get to the purely mechanical machines of traditional pro-class racing before the NHRA starts revising rules?
