In that first year of Copenhagen sponsorship for Don Prudhomme Racing, Capps was top qualifier with this car at two national events,
I thought this was the first Cope car:





This body was out a year before the bigger headlight Camaro body and before US Tobacco was put on it

Here is the next (first big headlight Camaro) car before the auction car. Still no US Tobacco on it



Here's the one after the auction car. UST is white (Love the light up decals )



As always, he's a ham when he sees a camera

If his '97 Cope car only sold for 70k and the '99 "Gold Snake" only for 56k, someone got a great deal!

2 cars for almost the same price as his Pepsi FC. Wow!

Default Snake selling again...

'The Snake' sells building to John Force
Mar. 22, 2013 1:09 PM Written by Carrie Ritchie

A Brownsburg building has changed hands from one drag-racing legend to another.

Don “The Snake” Prudhomme sold a 31,000-square-foot building to John Force, according to a news release from Jones Lang LaSalle, which handled the deal. Force already has space in the area, and the new building will allow him to expand John Force Racing, according to the news release.

The building, 493 Southpoint Circle, is part of an area in Brownsburg nicknamed “Nitro Alley” because it’s home to several drag-racing teams.

Looks like no ebay buyers:

1997 Prudhomme Racing Chevy Camaro Copenhagen Funny Car BODY:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1997-...item1e7ce0d93a
It looks to be the one between the first body (small square headlights) and the newer third body (Mecums auction large headlights) where this one has the small round headlight decals. I believe this makes all 3 different Camaro bodies he had.


btw, Dunns Yankees show dragster also up for auction:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2001-...item1e7cc79b55



... and only 8 hrs left to get Bernsteins' 1985 Tempo FC body:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/KENNY...#ht_500wt_1182



I'd rather have the Batmobile in the background
