    1/16 Don Prudhomes 1974 Army Vega Funny Car

    Since there's now a car/motorcycle section, I thought you guys might like seeing this build I have been following on a different board. Don Prudhome is a legend in drag racing having a career that spanned around four decades spending a long time as a driver, and then a team owner. He was nicknamed The Snake and he had a long but good-natured rivalry with another driver nicknamed The Mongoose doing a lot of match races and Hot Wheels came out with both their funny cars and dragsters and also a Hot Wheels drag racing set which I had as a kid and pretty much wore out.

    This is one of his famous cars, he also had a dragster in the same livery, and the guy building this is putting in some incredible detail. It's a long, but good thread.
