    From the York Musclecar Madness headquarters. " Five of the first six entries for 2015 York are Junior Stockers" . Now since there is still 11 months left until York there is still plenty of time left for the remaining 1000 hidden away Junior Stockers of all makes and models to resurface and sign up !!!!!!! Please Do!!

    Hey I am in need of exactly the same. I call Coker avery couple months for an update and have been told that M&H had mold issues with the 7.75/800 15 and has not said when if ever they will make again.
    Please let me know if you have any luck and I will do the same.
    Thanks,
    Steve (5Wcoupe)

    Hi Steve The last thing I was told was that they are not going to fix the molds because of the cost and return this was from a reliable source. If you can live with 8.00/8.50-14 [MVD-006] it is almost the same. Keith
     
  5. Darwin Doll tells me he just received Wayne Jesels registration for the 2015, York Reunion. That makes five of the first 6 cars registered for the show, Junior Stocks!
    The 2015 Reunion is going to be the one must attend show in 2015. They will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first S/S Nationals as well as celebrating the 60th anniversary of the opening of York US-30. AND, the icing on the cake will be the 2nd annual reunion of Junior Stock cars and alumni. Heres a link to the York site. Those who plan on attending with a car, its not to early to register. http://www.yorknostalgia.com/index_enter.html

    Thanks Keith-
    I was afraid of that but not surprising. Seems like most prefer the 9.00/15 but I bought a set and felt they were too tall for me. might have to rethink my wheels and go with the 14s like you said.

    We had a great time displaying The YOO HOO TOO at the 2014 York reunion and have sent in our registration for the 2015 event. Come on guys, let's make it another great event. Get those cars done.

    What tires and slicks are on the Yoo Hoo resto?
     
  10. The TENSION Chevy is under restoration. It'd be great to see this one done.

  12. Great looking tribute. Motivated by a supercharged 312. (Ok, not a tribute but the real deal, with apparent history)

    This isn't a tribute car. It is owned by Roger Sprouse and has been a race car for a long time!!

    sad state of affairs yesterday guys, went to the yellow bullet nationals at cecil county drag way and got to talking to some of the younger racers there about the old days and actualy had to explain to some what junior stock racing was. funny thing was some of the fellows were from maple grove pa. and didn't know what a junior stocker was.

  17. Not surprising, nitrous bottle babys are at the least, 2 generations removed from the Jr. Stock days.

    It's the real car. The current owner purchased it directly from Junior Clark. I don't know about the aluminum nose though. Stay tuned, as were working on a book on Sox & Martin that will have information on both Chevy's Ronnie campaigned in 62.

    York 2014 Junior Stock reunion

    The York 2014 Junior Stock reunion is currently being showcased on the Super Chevy website . www.superchevy.com/ events/ is where the writeup is located. Thanks to everybody who brought a car to the show, walked through and talked , enjoyed the cars or any of the above. The Second annual Junior Stock Reunion is already signing cars for 2015 on the York Musclecar Madness. While Tri Fives seem to have been hot this year there are plenty of other awesome cars out there sleeping. If you have one , wake it up, dust it off and send in your registration. If it's in its old tired lacquer paint ,good. If it's redone like the beautiful Jesel Yoo Hoo Too Delivery or the Ripes/ Dianna Corvette was, that's good too. This is about the old warriors, not correct radio knobs. In fact , the race car would already have a radio delete so that was a poor example. You get it. Come to York this year. Bring your former Racecar. If you can read this Super Chevy article and not want to ready your old race car for York it'd be a surprise....

    65deluxe - thanks for the pic of "TENSION". I have two small photos in a Tri 5 book. Would love to see the build. Heavily influenced my decision to paint my '57 pearl white. What does it take to get a space inside? That would be the ultimate.

    I remember his (Shropshire's) "Milk Wagon" '56 wagon at the the old "Atlanta $10,000" back in the early 70s (1970-71). Also Gene Evans with a black 350 Cutlass both from Cartersville, Ga at that time.
     
  28. Here's NASCAR '66 Stock...
