The Snake and The Mongoose Funny Cars were immortalized by their 1970 Hot Wheels editions, and the tradition continues: HWC proudly presents this Don “The Snake” Prudhomme Two-Car Set! Featuring the Plymouth ’Cuda Funny Car and the ’67 Dodge D700 Hauler, the set becomes available on Tuesday, October 18 at 9:00 AM PT. It will be offered first to Red Line Club members for a 24-hour Priority Window, with remaining quantities (if any) available to ALL HWC members on October 19. Also, RLC members earn one Rewards Point for each one they purchase. (And don’t miss the Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen set on November 1!)
