    Does anyone know where this racecar is today? Also, does anyone have photos of this car that they can post? I have searched the H.A.M.B. as well as the net and have had little luck. I have seen the following pictures of the car. Album cover, Marty in the car with Preacher Hamilton in the passenger window, 1 or 2 of it sliding through a corner and one going down the straight. I would like to see what you have!!

    Thanks,

    The same. Marty actually tried his hand at NASCAR for a short time. Drove for Cotton Owens.

    He evidently liked purple.

    Real name Robinson. Was a no 1 singer on the country and pop charts. Several Gold records and albums. One time he was so populat that he hosted the midnight special one time for Burt Sugarman. Top hits were elpaso, a white sportcot, gunfighter ballads. Was so good he was the closing act at the grand old opery in nashville. Made and financed one or 2 movies. He was a fine person who no one ever said anything bad about. Little known fact he helped Jim Crocie write some songs. one was "Rapid Roy" I could go on about him. may he rest in peace.

    Marty recorded a song called " 20th Century Drifter" about Nascar racing. I had the great pleasure of meeting him in the winter of 1968, when my then-wife was a secretary for a concert promotor. He was a great talent who left us way too early , like so many others, and a fine gentleman. RIP.........

    :)Thanks to everyone for their replies. I have seen those pictures before. I still am trying to find other pictures of this car. If you have pictures of it at the track or at a show I would love to see them.

    Thanks,

    I am suprised that no one noticed its a 5 window with the B pillar cut out. this was a common pratice in the central and south tennessee area. I guess it made a less blocked vision,much easier to enter and exit and last the small weight savings

    My step grandfather worked for Cotton...Roy Workman. He helped build Marty's cars. I sat in and steered that last racecar as a kid when they were loading it up to send off to a museum after he died.
