"The Snake" defeated the 2 time defending event champion Ed "The Ace" Mcculloch in a classic side by side final while at the same time setting a new NHRA national record of 6.35 e.t.!! This was Don Prudhomme's first U.S. Nationals win in a Funny Car.


Images and art used in this ad are for illustration purposes only. Please note that the replica used in these images are of the prototype made of the release but the final release will be very close to what your are seeing. There were some changes but very few. 


As most collectors know ACME released a Don “The Snake” Prudhomme 1/18th scale Ramp truck that is sold out and we might add sold out within days if not hours. 636 ramp trucks were made. Unfortunately we sold out of our numbers but as always we are working with ACME on obtaining a few extra from dealers who defaulted on their orders. If your one of the lucky ones who got one and may want to match our funny car and the ramp truck an FYI here, the Hot Wheels yellow and the Care Free yellow back in the actual days were and are different. The replicas do reflect the differing yellows.


Auto World has advised us that we should see the release sometime mid to late October, 2023. Unless something catastrophic occurs putting this release on your Christmas 2023 list should be safe. But please understand things can happen and so you know Auto World is by far the best company on estimated arrival times of products.
