In 1988 legendary Top Fuel and funny car drag racer Tom "Mongoose" McEwen introduced his fans to something really new. His new ride featured the classic body shape of the 1957 Chevy on a modern funny car chassis. With 1/4 mile runs at less than 6 seconds, this funny car could claim to be the fastest '57 Chevy in the world! Tom McEwen's drag racing career spanned more than 45 years with victories all along the way. However, he was most known for his famous match races against Don "The Snake" Prudhomme. These high-profile races defined a new era in professional drag racing with the introduction of nationally-known sponsors.
I built this kit when it was first released and it's still as cool as it was then! The body is just perfect with zero flash. The chassis is a standard modern funny car chassis with great detail. The decals are simply awesome! Looking forward to enjoy building this kit again!
