Winners Circle Muppet’s ANIMAL Character Funnycar

I have three of these larger die-cast Disney character cars and two or three miniatures. They are fun to be sure! This one features everyone’s favorite manic Muppet:

Die Cast Animal 008

This is a die-cast funnycar model featuring Tony Pedregon (March 8, 1965) who is a 2-time NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Funny Car Champion from Torrance, California. He is also the youngest of the Pedregon brothers. His brother Cruz Pedregon is the 1992 NHRA Mello Yello Series Funny Car Champion.

Here are two pictures of Tony’s actual cars. One is perhaps the template for the Animal variant, and the other is a life-sized version of the Animal car:
