    Great pics of John Anderson. He was my driver as a kid growing up in Detroit and watching races at Flat Rock, Toledo and Mt Clemmens. I talked to him in the pits a couple of times once he made it to Winston Cup. Also talked to him when he was a fabricator at Hutcherson Pagan. He could have went a long way in cup given the proper chance.

    Ref: Post 4922...

    Hberg Lives, that "controversial" finish at Michigan stuck in my craw for a full year. Les Richter told us to go ahead and finish under yellow despite our five-lap rule (which had been shortened to three laps because of the length of the track). A year later, when Balough tried to jump the start (twice), I refused to throw the green in the final laps, even when told he wanted me to. When Gary behaved, I threw it and Trickle won the race. I recounted this incident in a "Driven to the Past" column on Frontstretch.com, and am including it in the book I'm working on. If that looks like a shameless plug, it's only because it is.

    BTW, Coach and I did get to be friends later when I was at IRP. And Gary and I remained friends.

    Okay all you Canadian stock car fans and Jr. Hanley or Don Biederman fans in particular.......

    ........I need to know if this story is true.....

    I was told once that those two hated each other so much that one time Biederman sat down and was just served a very expenive steak dinner at some nice restaurant when in comes Junior Hanley...

    ....and as soon as Don saw Junior enter the place he got up, paid for his dinner and left leaving the dinner untouched.............

    or as my memory is fading here.....

    .....it was the same situation but the two of them in reversed roles in the story...........I can't remember which was which but I was told this a long time ago by some fans up North of the border.......

    Can anyone confirm that??..........lol!!!

    There is so much Off Topic, Latemodel stuff on this Thread that I'm not even going to try and clean it up.

    So instead, the next Off Topic car on this Thread will Close it...

    No, when you post on the HAMB, please stay with things that are Relevant and On Topic.

    The HAMB concentrates on Trad Hot Rods and Trad Customs.

    ( cut off date is about mid '60s in year and buildstyle, so the earlyer Stock Cars are fine )

    You could start a Social Group and post things that would be Off Topic there.

    Or go to the Dogfight Forum.

    Which is also one of Ryan's sites.
    ( thats where I post about my O/T cars as well )

    More modern stuff is welcome there, as long as its performance orientated ( which Stock Cars are...)

    Sorry, I read the quoted 1st message and seeing how it was 2.5 years old and still going and said "from the beginning thru 85 or so" I assumed what I was posting was OK. I have stretched it to 86 with some of my pictures but I will quit now and If you want I will remove all my posts. I was just going by what I thought was the original intent of the opening post.

    We have had this exact same discussion with the Drag Race pic Thread, and other Pics Threads.

    This should come as no surprise to anybody...


    If any more discussion about this is necesary, please go go to the Q & S Forum.

    So this Thread can get back to On Topic cars.

    For those of you who haven't checked it out the "pics of Langley Speedway" thread has a bunch of stock car pics and is currently being updated on a daily basis. Many who like this thread may find it worth a look too.
