1965: "The Year of The Snake"

This headline of Don Prudhomme's article in the May 2019 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines included his relationship with Roland Leong of "The Hawaiian" funny car empire and about 1965 being "The Year of The Snake" in the Chinese calendar.

Everyone reading this now will see the same incredible irony that I do, as that was also the year that another team of snakes won the WORLD MANUFACTURER's CHAMPIONSHIP:
