Think of the word "drag race" and the movie "Grease" is likely to come to mind. I tend to associate the word with The Fifties, "Happy Days" and "The Fonz", ducktails, bobby-sox and the Ed Sullivan Show. In a word - nostalgia stuff!! Just check the second link on the right to prove my point.

But actually, drag races never died out, they're as much a part of modern culture as the Spice Girls, Monica Lewinsky and El Nio. Just check the first and third links on the right.
