Funny you should use that term, funny car. Because there is a class of drag racing cars called Funny cars. They got their name Funny car about 1965 but didn't stick till a little later. It was said a track announcer saw the body of the car rise up as one piece and said that's a funny car, meaning funny/strange. Here is a link to my album of funny cars. www.ipernity.com/doc/291625/album/430621

Now back to the photo, that is not a VW like so many people think, it is a replica of a modified 1948 Fiat Topolino, they are very popular in drag racing in the USA.
