I don't usually like watching "car" movies, they manage to make them so silly somehow (Stallone's IRL movie for example) but this one looks like it might be worth a look. Rush might be another.

Love the old action shots and I would like to know the story behind these two racers. Thanks for the link Doug.

Agreed Doug. Should be a good one.
Read something about the trucks that they refurbished to make this film. And if memory has it correct, I think they sold these at Barret Jackson last month.
I remember these guys and their funny cars being at Cayuga back in the day. Good stuff.
 
I remember seeing their rivalry and races back in the day (including at the US Nationals) and enjoyed them immensely. Look forward to seeing the new movie. Should be a winner.

Great movie trailer.

Was there for the whole duration of Toronto International Dragway when it was in existence. Snake and Mongoose visited many times and I used to have both their autographs on one of Don's Mattel business cards. Looking forward to seeing the movie too when it finally gets here.

When I was a kid in the early 70's I built a model of the Snake's funny car. I used to have the Hot Wheels car as well.
