  1. I'm not much of a Dodge fan, but that white post car sure looks fine to me.

  7. Always one of my favorite HAMB threads. Those on facebook, look for the Junior Stock Memories page. Lots of photos, info and ex-racers there.

    Guys, The York Musclecar Madness show is coming up in York in July as you may or may not know. There are a ton of Tri Five Jr. Stockers showing up plus who knows what else from that Era when Stockers ruled. If you have seen the Yoo Hoo Too 56 Delivery page you know what I mean. Many of the actual restored specific cars that ruled back then will be there. The plan is to be at York by noon on Thursday, July 10 so we can put the cars in the same hall at the same time. Kinda like staging lanes if you will. So, if the timing can possibly work for you as a long hauler or not, this is how the plan stands. If you're coming it's going to be something to behold as Darwin Doll posted last year immediately after York 2013. They'll be nothing like it again. Thanks guys. Hope to see you there..

    get-attachment.jpg Got this picture at Indy today. Vic Holleys Jr/Stocker. Has the proper two-four carbs and all the little things that we all love.

    Nice 55 delivery but two four barrel carbs on a 55 is not proper.

  16. I'd say this could technically run Jr stock until it hammered down and drove past the competition. A Swiss cheese Pontiac Catalina with aluminum and fiberglass panels and bumpers and plexiglass windows.

    Not on a 55 but they were factory 2x4'S that I think he said came from Kyle Marshall. Close enough for you?

    Sorry, looks like somebody needs a nap. I get a little cranky when I'm tired.

    Yes it's true about the old days but without bracket racing ,drag racing as we know it would have died a long time ago. It's so expensive today to even think about a stock eliminator car that's competitive is unheard of.

    IMG_6087.JPG On Wednesday at 8 pm CDT on the history channel the pickers will be at Rocco and Cheaters Speed Shop in Birmingham AL. They were my primary sponsor back in the day. This should be interesting and a real history lesson on speed and custom parts. Last I know when they closed many years ago they still had speed and custom parts from the 50's. It will be like opening a time capsule. Don Kirkland's Carrot Cart.
