The 2010 Grand Prize Giveaway Car, the BOSS SNAKE was won by Hazelwood, Missouri’s Tom Ramsey here at the 13th Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona. Ramsey qualified as a finalist at the 5th Nashville Nationals in May. He first joined Goodguys when he and his wife Linda went to the Hot Rod Nationals in Indianapolis back in 2006. The BOSS SNAKE will join the couple’s Speedway Motors ’32 Ford roadster lowboy in their garage. They’re also building a ’29 Ford Tudor which they hope to complete next spring.
When he was in his 20’s Ramsey was a big Muscle Car enthusiast owning such classics as a ’66 Chevy II Super Sport, ’70 Dodge Charger, ’69 Corvette, as well as 1976 & 1979 Trans Am’s. He now has the ultimate muscle car in which to relive his youth!
One of the first words out his mouth after his lucky key fired the ‘SNAKE was “Yippeeeee! I’m drivin’ it back to St Louis!” He planned to start his journey the day after he won the car.
