I used to have the Hot Wheels funny cars and (front engine!!) dragsters of both the Mongoose and the Snake. I kind of wish I still did, I can only imagine how valuable they would be.

It is a shame it will be on a dragster instead of a funny car, but at least it is being done!

In an unrelated note, Bob Tasca III also hinted that he's doing a throwback scheme to a legend on his car also.

With this being throwback weekend in NASCAR at Darlington for their top series and last weekend for their truck series, as well as ARCA and short track guys getting in on the action, you'd think NHRA might join the fun too.

It looks amazingly better than I thought it would, and I have an instant favorite for Monday. Go Mike!

Wish they would. I wonder if Force will have champ schemes for Brit and Robert this year

That is pretty cool looking. Salinas has the coolest looking Rigs parked on the property anywhere he goes. That dude is living life.
