The rules of the childhood dare system are well documented in the 1983 movie “A Christmas Story”.
“I dare you” comes first. Next up ” I double-dare you”. Then, as the narrator of A Christmas Story says “a double-dog-dare. What else was there but a triple-dare you? And then, the coupe de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.”
Mattel released the Hot Wheels Double-Dare Race Action Set in 1969. In my prior post, I added a Danger-Changer 2-Pak to produce the 1971 Triple-Dare Race Action Set. Now it’s time to take it to the limit. A drag set with 3 Danger-Changers. The 1971 Triple-Dog-Dare Drag Set.
What’s the dog part? Start with 2 current model Growlers…
and race them against two 1994/1999 reissues of the original redline dog catcher’s vehicle, The Mutt Mobile.
With dogs in the back.
Here’s a race down the assembled track.
See how Growlers and Mutt Mobiles pair up on my YouTube channel.
So there you have it. A custom track, the 1971 Hot Wheels Triple-Dog-Dare Drag Set.
It’s still fast. Still fun.
