Hot Wheels Snake and Mongoose_5cc

The “Snake” and “Mongoose” legend remainsone of drag racing’s most talked about rivalries,and now, thanks to Hot Wheels, everyone can own areplica piece of the story. These are exact scale copies of the 1967 DodgeD700 Crew cab haulers that Don Prudhomme and Tom McEwen traveledbetween meets in; featuring authentic livery (with the exception of a fewpricier-to-license sponsors like Coke, Bell, and Cragar) they’ve been me-ticulously recreated. The rear bed is done in diamond plate, and it even has the hold down straps that go over the rear end ofthe car to hold it in place. Those cars are also detailed to perfection, from the white stars over a wide blue/thin red stripe to the “Snake” on the front spoiler. Anyone who collects Snake and Mongoose or any type of drag racing memorabilia will want thisset once they’ve seen it. And now, you have. Each set is sold separatelyand can be purchased directly from Mattel’s website. – Mike Zarnock hotwheelscollector.com
