The Classic Dragster (known as Nostalgia 1 in the PAL release) is a default kart used by medium-sized characters in Mario Kart Wii.

The Classic Dragster resembles a late-1930's Grand Prix racecar, which resembles Yoshi's Cucumber from Mario Kart DS. Also, just like the Cucumber, the characters' emblem is located on the hood. This is the only kart in the medium-sized class not to have a bike counterpart. The Zucchini (Gherkin in the British English version) from Mario Kart 7, could be considered to be the Classic Dragster's successor.


Its stats are quite similar to the Cheep Charger and the Quacker, offering good acceleration, handling, drift and mini-turbo, but also offers below average speed and weight. Its off-road stat is evenly balanced.
