VIDEO: the most frightening drag race EVER

Published in blog.hemmings.com

Yeah, yeah, yeah… we know. We know you’ve seen that one episode of “The Munsters” with the drag race. WE. KNOW.

But look, it’s the Halloween edition of the Muscle Machines weekly and do you really think we’d let this day pass without revisiting the “Hot Rod Herman” episode that featured some of the greatest front-engine dragsters, gassers and early altereds ever to grace prime-time television? That’s a rhetorical question, btw.

So, we dug up a highlights reel of that episode, because INTERNET. And that one episode, with bespoke cars built by Barris Kustom City, turned us all into one giant, soul-searching, very non-rhetorical question: Are you Munsters Koach or are you Drag-U-La? The answer says a lot about you. Like, are you Elvis or Beatles? Ford or Chevy? Whiskey or beer?

We’ve been fortunate enough to have parked our carcass in the driver’s seat of the Koach years ago, in the back shop at Barris Kustom City, with George and his son, Brett, making sure we didn’t leave with the keys in our pocket. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we don’t love the Drag-U-La more. So, what say ye? What kind of gearhead are you?
