One thing we’re very proud of here is our relationship with one of the most legendary hot rodders and drag racers of all time, Don Prudhomme. The Snake is retired from both driving and active team ownership, but he’s been generous about sharing his past with us, and keeping us up on his car restorations, as a guest columnist in Hemmings Muscle Machines.
The Snake is the daylong guest in a special presentation on the National Hot Rod Association’s 60th birthday, to be held on Wednesday, November 10, at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Among other activities, Prudhomme will hold a panel discussion with his Mattel match-race partner, Tom McEwen, and an evening get-together with luminaries from his past including T.V. Tommy Ivo, digger owner Roland Leong and event MC Dave McClelland. Tickets for the day, priced at $150, benefit the museum’s educational program. The photo above, incidentally, depicts Hot Rod magazine’s Ray Brock (left) interviewing Prudhomme and engine builder Keith Black, when their Greer-Black-Prudhomme dragster was the most feared Top Fuel car in the United States.
