Did the Mystery Machine Really Beat the Supernatural Impala in a Drag Race?
After a brief hiatus, the hit drama Supernatural returned last week with its long-anticipated “Scoobynatural” episode. Side by side, the famous Mystery Machine and Dean Winchester’s 1967 Chevrolet Impala took on the animated streets to hunt down a disturbed ghost haunting a local mansion.
Of course, with two cars that are characters of their own, it was only natural for the Mystery Machine and the Impala to go head-to-head in the crossover episode. On their way to the mansion, Fred suggested Sam and Dean follow them. “I’m not sure Baby can go that slow,” Dean bragged. Fred assured Dean that the Mystery Machine is a lot faster than it looks (which probably isn’t hard, considering a mini bus doesn’t get a lot of recognition for performance). Sparked by his own jealousy, Dean decided to challenge Fred to a drag race.

“Let’s see who can get there first,” Dean challenged Fred. “Or are you… chicken?”
“I’m game if you are,” smiled Fred.
Dean revved the Impala’s engine confidently at the red light, and fans all over the country expected the Impala to dominate the road. But as the light turned green, the Mystery Machine left the Impala in the dust.
“Did you just get beat by a microvan?” Sam asked, astonished.
Truthfully, we all should’ve expected the Mystery Machine to win in its own animated universe. Plus, Dean’s ego simply needed to be put in check. But if you put a mini bus next to Dean’s 1967 Chevrolet Impala in the real world, the results would likely be flipped. The Impala is a true muscle car that’s pretty tough to beat.
