I was raiseing a family, and out of Drag raceing by the time Funny Cars came around. However...the Stone/Woods/Cook Willys was my favorite Gasser...
I used to draw the picture off of the side of Jungle Jim's car a lot when I was a kid. My grandmother bought me the Snake and Mongoose Hot Wheels set for my birthday once.
Always my favorite...Dick Landy's 64 and 65 Dodges...doin them Wheelies! Why never any diecasts of the Funny Cars??

A toss up between Veney's Vega and Jungle's camaro.
I think you meant DON THE SNAKE PRUDHOMME AND TOM THE MONGOOSE MCEWEN!
Vegas for me. The BRUT and Barry Setzer Vegas were just good lookin cars but Jungle Jim was all that (always will be).
I tended to favor Bruce Larson's "USA-1" Camaro Funny Cars of the late 1960's... Besides the patriotic red, white, and blue color schemes, I believed the "USA-1" moniker was a noble concept in the naming of a race car, because I believed as a child that the USA was the best d*rn place to call home, and then later in my life, after having traveled much of the globe as an adult, I still stand firm with my opinion of this great USA, there's no changing my mind regarding that matter-- These United States remain the best place to live and do your business-- It's nice to visit other nations and locations, but I choose to call the USA my home... When I finally met Bruce Larson as an adult, I found his straightforward and honest approach as a man to be admirable and refreshing-- He is a genuine gentleman who treats you with respect... Bruce Larson is a "racer's racer" and ALL the cars that he's campaigned over the years have proven to be clean and competitive machines... I look forward to seeing fellow fans of the "old school" Funny Car genre at the upcoming "Geezers At The Grove" event-- Stop by the Drag Racing Underground tent and say hello... I believe that Bruce "USA-1" Larson will be there too... God Bless the USA... "The Doc" (Celebrity Drag Racing Authority & Visionary)...
jungle jim and crew
And any of the '68/9 Charger funnies.....
I was always a huge fan of the Green Elephant.

The " hawiian"
dale pulde's war eagle
Well, why I certainly like the Floppers, they just don't hold nearly as much appeal to me as the early steel-bodied AWB's do. Here's my favorite Funny Car of all time with my favorite FC driver of all time. Jungle Jim drove Brutus for a lengthy period of time.
Chi town Hustler
Color me Gone
