    Well guys, we're about 6 weeks away from the York Muscle Car Madness show complete with a Junior Stockers. We're having a "drivers meeting "at 10 AM on Saturday in the York hall in a conference room. We're going to discuss a bunch of Junior Stock Only things and you don't have to be a driver to be there. If you'd like to hear some of the actual racers from the day talk about the golden days, this is the place. You can listen, speak or just take it in. To top it all off we will discuss the dreaded "15 year rule" and Darwin Doll will actually chime in on that. Although I have been skirting bodily harm for even bringing it up, it will be discussed anyhow. Certainly the rule that Killed the Junior Stockers in the swipe of a pen, it will be interesting to hear from Darwin, the Northeast Division Director at the time. So, plan to be there, car or not. You'll see a large sign that says "Junior Stock Driver meeting " right outside the room. It's Saturday, July 11,2015 . It starts at 10 AM and runs as long as we want to talk about Stockers. You should be home by Labor Day......

    What are the weight/rower ratios for the different stock classes?

    I am also looking for any pictures of a 1966 Chevelle from the stock class.

    By the way, Tommyd, your collection of pictures is second to none. Thanks for continuing to post them. We're over 11,300 posts since this started. I'd say the Junior Stockers were popular all right....

    Pat: The last time I saw Skeets and his car was back in the mid 80's and the car was sitting in the tire shop Skeet's and his father owned in Norwalk on Route 7
    After their property was sold I am not sure if they simply moved the tire shop or just closed it down.

    Its rare to find someone who is the original owner of a car who has never sold the car!!
    This car has a great deal of drag racing history associated with it.

    I watched him win C/SA many Sunday's at Dover back in the 60's

    Matt, *That really depends on the year/s in question. The image is of my 65, but they were VERY similar

    A couple pictures of a friend’s 55 that was raced in the day. The white photo is dated May 69. The car was painted purple and raced quite a bit at Minnesota Dragways. The last photo is Jerry at Indy, September 71, "Rain-Out".

    In Post #11326, that 57 Wagon is Roger Gettleman's from Miami Fl. isn't it ? That was one of the first purpose built stocker race cars in S Fl if Im not mistaken. I believe Bob Fulp built the motor but could be wrong. That looks like Amelia Earhart field in Hialeah where they first ran drags in Miami

    The Junior Stock photo shoot at York Musclecar Madness is set. If you're Stocker is coming and you want to be in the magazine shoot, please be at York by 8:30 AM on Thursday July 9. The photographers want to shoot the cars before the sun gets really bright in the July heat. After that the cars will be placed in the hall together like last year. There were some really great shots last year that have surfaced so thanks for that . Remember the Drivers meeting ( or any Stocker enthusiast ,car or not) please attend the 10 AM drivers meeting in the York hall on Saturday . See you at York!!!!

    What motor would that Rambler have in it for F/S? I had one way back when that had a 283 in it and I was told it came from the factory with it but never researched it.

    I think it's a supercharged Studebaker. I know that the Avantis with blowers ran D/S for a while.

    I believe that is a '63 Studebaker, not a Rambler(we get that a lot by-the-way). In '63 you could have gotten a 259, 289 and yes even a supercharged 289. I am not sure how class classification worked when this photo was taken. I do know that when horsepower was used it made it difficult for Studebaker guys since the factory did not make a big deal about how much horsepower the engines had. 283 GM engines were used in '65 and '66 only. By this time Studebaker had shut down all production in the U.S. including the foundries putting out engine blocks and such. So when all manufacturing was done in Canada (Hamilton, Ontario) they got engines from McKinnon Industries who produced GM engines in Canada. Both V8's and six cylinder engines used by Studebaker during these two model years came from this source. V8's were very basic only 2bbl carbs., etc.

    Hey, no need for an apology. I didn't mean to be ugly about this at all. Like I said most Studebaker guys, especially with cars from '59 through '66, have had their rides called a Rambler. I have even had my '61 pickup called a Rambler. We are all pretty much used to it.
