Default A little perspective on how fast the new cars are

So I was reading through the ford performance stuff from SEMA and saw this;
"The Cobra Jet engine is comprised largely of production Mustang GT components topped by a front inlet Whipple supercharger and is capable of 8-second quarter mile times as delivered."

Huh, I thought, that's 8 seconds in a stocker.....8 seconds! So to put it in perspective I was looking around and found the following in reference to the March Meets on the left coast;
" By 1964, when Kalitta won, the field was limited to the top 32 fuel dragsters with an additional rule that a car had to run at least 8.30 (9.00 for top gas dragsters)."

So if you took a 2016 Cobra Jet back to 1964 (the good old days as they say) you could qualify for top gas dragster and almost make the cut for top fuel!
And this with a blown stocker!

THESE are the real "good old days"!
Crazy to even think but, wonder who will be the first stocker in the 7's??
