The drag racing exploits of cult heroes Don “The Snake” Prudhomme and Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen captivated a generation of fans 40 years ago. Anaheim Comic Con fans will have the chance to experience a taste of what those early renegade days were like, and the phenomenon they helped grow known as “Hot Wheels,” with a special tribute to the stars and a look at some of the memorabilia that made it all happen.

A feature film, “Snake and Mongoose,” telling this amazing story, is in pre-production for 2012 release. Executive Producers Stephen Nemeth (owner of Rhino Films and Exec Producers of such films as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Dogtown and Z-Boys, etc...) and Storywise Productions co-founders (and S &M Co-Exec Producers) Robin Broidy and Leslie Barnes will host a “Snake and Mongoose” panel at Anaheim Comic Con on Friday at 7 p.m.

The panel will feature the announcement of the film, a bit of the story of the project – it’s about not only the impact these two gladiators have had on drag racing and motorsports, but also they way in which they helped propel Hot Wheels into the stratosphere. They had a huge impact on toys, fashion, video games, comics books, everything pop culture.

The panel will also feature a screening of a rarely seen early 1970’s short documentary about the pair of racers. The film takes fans into the heart of the early days of drag racing, complete with toy commercials from back in the day.

Two of the duo’s most famous cars will be seen for the first time ever at a Comic Con throughout the weekend. Snake and Mongoose will be signing autographs on Saturday (2 – 5 p.m.), and will have unique merchandise and one-of-a-kind collectors items for sale. The booth will also feature artifacts from their race days that have not been seen since the 1970’s.
