Don 'the Snake' Prudhomme was my hero as a child and he's still the coolest cat around. Seeing all of 'the Snake's' funny cars assembled like this would be an emotional experience for me.

The Snake's appearance at Bison Dragways on July 1, 1975 was the first
time I ever went to a drag strip. It was a day I'll never forget.

Wow.. that takes me back!

As a kid in the 70's, I had a bunch of those Hot Wheels cars, and built models of others. Good times. Thanks for posting this!

"Thirty miles east of Winnipeg on Hwy 1" the ads screamed from the radio.

Here's 12 pages of vintage racing pics from Keystone/Bison Dragways.
