Skoal Bandit Funny Car BurnoutDon Prudhomme’s 1989 Pontiac Skoal Bandit Funny Car is going to the auction, Dana Mecum’s 26th Original Spring Classic Auction that is, May 14-19, 2013 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This Skoal Bandit Funny Car was the last flopper Prudhomme drove before getting back into the Top Fuel category in 1990. Don piloted “The Skoal Bandit” to numerous wins in the 1989 season – Rockingham, Sonoma, Dallas and the big one, The U.S. Nationals.

My big question is we all know how much these things are to build, just how much will a piece of racing history go for at the auction?
