I'm a fan of the show, not of the antics. The guys build some fast cars, no doubt about it and its cool to see them putting in the wrench time and test hits.
I get that some people's perception of what a fast street car is, is going to be different than others. To me if it's street legal, that's all that counts. It doesn't have to be a daily driver, but I think it should be driven to the race. If you think having a full roll cage, wheelie bars, and 1000+hp disqualifies you as a street car, here's something you might like.
1000 miles, 4 tracks, 5 days, and five 6 second passes.
I know the passes are on prepped tracks, but to get ANY car to consistently run in the 6's is impressive... let alone one that pulls a trailer to the track, not rides in one.
