The first was pretty close most of the time, but the second episode was a joke. This older Corvette(I think early 70's style) was just killing the other guy, in his 1964 2 door Chevelle. The Chevelle looked cool and totally suped-up, but he just could not get any traction at the start! He complained that his side was too slick, so they traded sides and the Corvette still smoked him by a mile(well, almost a quarter mile!)! The winner said he was going to put the Chevelle on e-bay for 32 grand, but I don't see it yet.
Winners often put the car they won on eBay, however they usually don't do it until the episode airs.
