Introducing the world's fastest 1978 Chevrolet Vega and Chrysler Cordoba Funny Cars. The Owner is Chuck Horvath. Driver Mark Horvath, Crew Chief Brad Horvath and Mechanic Anthony Horvath.

HOW WE GOT STARTED...

Chuck Horvath and his two sons, Brad and Mark, had a 15 year dream - to build a competitive drag car. Three years ago, Horvath started looking for a dragster chassis. He eventually found an unfinished, 1978 Vega fiberglass funny car that had been stored for 21 years in a barn. The transformation from derelict to head-turning funny car took Horvath and his sons almost three years to complete. The car has a fiberglass one-piece body, chromemoly tube chassis and is powered by a 392 cubicinch 1958 Chrysler Hemi, supercharged on alcohol. The car will compete in the NHRA nostalgia funny car class, Great Lakes Funny Car Circuit, Good Guys events and Midwest funny car races.
