Don Prudhomme's Car Collection & Race Shop Tour!
Take an inside look at Don Prudhomme's race shop in Vista, CA with Snake as
he gives information about many of the dragsters and funny cars in his
collection. He also provides up-close looks at both of the original,
restored Snake & Mongoose 1967 Dodge D700 Hot Wheels Ramp Trucks!
When the stars line up in front of me, I just have to record it.
I have no choice.
And this was one of those moments.
I don't know if this will ever happen again. I certainly hope it will--and
in front of the grandstands at some selected NHRA events. For you see, you
just don't see this happening at all-- when you look back at how unlikely
it is that the car and the driver would still be around in 2012!
Take the driver, Don Prudhomme. How many times did he make full passes in
a top fuel dragster or funny car? And for how many years?
In short, it's a miracle that he is in one piece, after all that--and he
is! Thank goodness!
Then the car:
The Greer, Black, and Prudhomme dragster, built by Kent Fuller and raced
from 1962 through 1964, with the original partners, it ran up an incredible
record at southern California tracks of 81 wins and only 8 loses!
(According to Phil Burgess) Then lengthened--bought and raced as the
"Bonanza" for a while, eventually stripped of it's motor and left sitting
for years. Restored by Steve Davis, bought by Bruce Meyer--How likely is
it that it would be allowed to join up with "Snake" for this moment?
Pretty unlikely--except that it's owner Bruce Meyer, is a good friend of
Don's, and after hearing about Rick MacDonald, they gave him the nod to
bring the car to the track, and push start it to life. Now the driver
could have been someone else....but it wasn't.
That's what makes this fire up so significant.
And like I said: All we can do is hope that this mind blowing moment will
happen again at a track near you.
And if you hear they are coming, better "Make the Scene". For the chance
may not come again.
Like an old legendary cowboy on a white horse in your local parade. And
all you need to do is what you did when you were a kid: Sit on the curb
and watch him go by.
