    Interesting bit of history. Documents the only successful rear engine funny car and life on the road for a low budget racer - Jim Dunn. Interesting line in the video in 1973 Jim Dunn wonders if he will stick with racing much longer since he had been at it for 20 years. Well 37 years later he is still involved in drag racing, now as a team owner.
