Are any hotrods actually driven hard? How do these things perform?

#1, This one is obviously a straight-up drag car, so I wouldn't expect it to corner too well, but it's probably pants-shitting fast in a straight line. At least with the tires aired up.

As for street builds, here's a traditional flathead-powered (with a solid front axle and drum brakes all around) '32 Ford autocrossing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOevYexYFwo

#3, Fantastic! Hm, it does not look that different from stock cars of that vintage I've seen, at least handling wise... Did they still use friction dampers back in the day? These were very easy to tighten/stiffen up. I assumed the biggest advantage would be lower weight. I gotta do some more research on this.

#3, That's the same basic route Goodguys uses for a lot of their autocross events. Same announcer, too. When I run my dad's '71 GMC stepside, it probably leans like that hot rod, but it goes around the track faster. :)
