Pre Order
$139.95

Back in the mid 1960's the two biggest names known around the drag racing community were Mondello & Matsubara. After the two teamed up in 1965 the drag world was never the same. They set numerous records and built one heck of a reputation to boot! They ran two very succesful fiats with smaller powerplants and in early 1969, Matsubara ordered another car; this time from a company named Exhibition Engineering. This Topolino helped further to immortalise the efforts of M&M. With it's wild paint job and blown 472 Chevy poerplant, it was a force to be reckoned with on the track. M&M set the national record for AA Fuel Altereds with a 7.24 ET and 213 mph pass at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis in 1969, and won runner-up in Competition Eliminator. To put that amazing performance into perspective, the low ET for Funny Cars at that event was 7.22! M&M certainly carved thier names in the history books with runs like that. Now you have an oppurtunity to own an amazing piece of drag racing history with our all new release of the beautiful M&M altered dragster. This will surely be a sellout quickly so get your pre orders in today!
