The Classic Dragster (known as Nostalgia 1 in Europe) is a kart in Mario Kart Wii. It is a kart for medium-weight characters and is available from the start. It resembles a postwar grand prix racecar, or an early Formula One. The Classic Dragster does not have a bike-counterpart, as well as the Zip Zip, which doesn't have a compatible kart-counterpart.

It has great acceleration with good handling, drift, and mini-turbo. It also has average off-road, and weight, but its speed is quite slow though. This kart is also very similar to Yoshi's Cucumber in Mario Kart DS in both appearance and stats.
