I see quite a few trucks around where I live that give every appearence
of being built for drag racing.

There is one up the road that is something like a Sierra 1500.  It is
radically lowered (sits lower than my Jetta and must scrape terribly
over spead bumps), and it has the flared bed that usually goes over 4
rear tires, but instead it has 2 foot wide tires on the back.  It also
has one of those paint jobs that changes colored based on your angle to
the surface.

There is also a truck I drive past regularly that has the engine in the
rear frame sticking up through the bed.  This one hasn't particularly
been lowered, but it still does have very wide tires in the back.
