The Veney's Vega car looks great. Why don't any of today's cars look like that, with the body sitting nice and low?

I think that Reading Beer car later was owned by Dave Schapiro and was then called Wonderland Rabbit.It was r/u in 1980 and won the D1 Super Pro Bracket Division in 1981. I believe it may have been the only funny car to have won a divisional bracket title.
