this (#16) looks like a '62 windshield/vent window with '64 sheetmetal...
Way to to, monsterflake. I never noticed that, and I'll admit I probably should have when I posted the photos over 40 years later. That would mean the particular part came off the 1962 Baird drove. Hampton was in a Chevrolet in 1962 if my feeble memory is correct.
Another one of those things I was talking about. I know it's safer today, but does anybody else think it was more fun when we built the cars out of junkyards? Templates? We don't need no stinkin' templates!!!"
hell yea big john, i found out over in delawaere they are racing 50's sedans, so we went to the back yard and drug out a 50 ford and a building we go. will post pics soon.http://www.littlelincolns.com/
check em out!
Thanks, Jerry. THAT sounds like old-time fun!
There a great club & race hard
Somehow, James, I figured you knew about them.
Help needed !
Which driver / owner is this one ?
The car appears to be a Cyclone or Torino from Flat Rock, Michigan, so I'm hoping someone from that area can help out in identifying this one. Sponsor: White's Auto Supply.
Photo taken at Kil-Kare, in Xenia, Ohio in 1970 or 1971, at a "special" (non-weekly) race. This race was the only time I ever saw this car. It has the look of an ARCA New Car, but I never saw it compete in that series either.
Let us know, etc. Thanks
John, You are so right about Andy Hampton being in a Chevrolet in 62.
The car was built by Harvey Fluhr from a burnt out 62 Chev hardtop. He cut the top off to make a drop top.As you remember they were allowed at the Fairgrounds in those early years.We young "Punk" teens were at Fluhrs auto salvage almost everyday when the Red chevy was being built.We thought we were the "King of the hill" because the Fluhrs let use watch !!!! Lol Gosh were those the days !!!! Tom ( Tired Old Man)
Oldtimer---That might be Ron Grana in # 10.??
In post 3460 by Vegas Old Timer, the third photo, does anyone have any further pictures of the #7 Chevelle sponsored by JEGS? I'd love to see more photos of that.
Right on, Lawman! I remember that red 62 convertible. And Harvey Fluhr was a cool guy, in addition to being one hell of a mechanic.
Here's the very next picture on the roll.
Found another Don Gregory shot from a couple of years later, at Dayton - this time in a Monte Carlo.
Thanks much. I believe I saw Don Gregory come to Heidelberg for the big events; he was an "outsider" along with Bob Senneker, Harold Smith, Joy Fair and Ed (?) Howe. They'd roll in and stomp most of the regulars. Real competetive gang.
Maybe just a little ot, this is what my dad ran in the early 80's

Looking for early-'70s (color, hopefully) photos of Late Models that ran at Cayuga Speedway (Nelles Corners, Ontario, Canada). Norm Lelliott, Howie Scannell, Terry Kitchen, Ken Reimer, Harold Brown, Jr. Hanley, etc. Anybody got 'em? I think "Tex" Swiston was the photog there then.
Great stuff, Doc. That's what I'm talking about. Looks like the guy in the 74 is about to have a very bad night. And I love that '63 Chevy.
Nashville, Dick Trickle 99, Rusty Wallace 66, Mike Alexander 84
WHOS' it: Same race:
Here's a few for Dr.John, sorry not much color.
Steve, I'm not sure who's driving or who owns this #10, but I have these shots from different years of the #10 car with Joy Fair at Toledo and Buck Newland at Daytona. Looks like this car was entered in ARCA competition for several years. It may even be the same team you have Don Violet driving for in some of your other ARCA shots.
I wonder why Joy was driving the #10 at Toledo? Always had #1.
BNORTON734: Great pics! Thanks. Been a long time since I've seen a pic of Scannell's Mopar. Thanks again.

I don't believe this has been posted. A sad day for Lee.
Those are AWESOME PICS, thank you so much for sharing them!!!

Paul Putt, 1966
Bill Bitterman, 1968 -- yes, it's a Stude
Bill Bitterman, approx. 1966
With it being a Pierce Brothers car, numbered 14, my first guess would be Larry Moore (aka USAC's biggest mistake) - but I bet that's wrong.
A few more Canadians!
check out the contributed photo section, the Swiegart section is a treasure chest of drivers and cars from the New Castle/ Muncie, and Anderson Indiana area.
I've been corresponding with some racers in Argentina ahead of a visit by two of them this September. They love MOPARS down there and sent the following link:
Check out the SLANT 6 powered Dodges with the wild fiberglass noses and incredible intake manifolds. Put your hand over the noses & see that from the cowl back they are NASCAR GN Dodge Coronets!
