Thanks to Dave Burket for entrusting to me the box art and decal design for this project. Thanks also to Tom Miller for the excellent photos of his beautiful build of the test shot which served as the basis for the design.

My dad has one of the originals from when he was younger, those slicks look bigger than the ones on the original, but maybe its just me...

Yay! Now I can toss out that Ebay purchased gluebomb I was thinking of restoring. Or maybe make that one into the Snake version.

Here's a picture of the real deal. With this kit and a Hot Wheels decal for each side you can replicate the true car easily.

I remember about 10 years ago i had the snake vs mongoose kit, only thing i have left of it is one of the chassis and an extra pair of slicks with halibrands and a straight axle that i just now put on a 55 chevy :lol:
