    Certainly looks like Lions to me but I'm having trouble remembering that particular car. I've put out a few feelers to see if anyone else has a clue.

    Not that much of a picture but the shot says it all. I took this at NY National speedway, date written on back says 1969 but it might be 1970. I was in Army most of 69 and only home on leave for the month of July, it could be then but I don't know.

    No apologies needed! I enjoyed it very much. What were the ET's and MPH's of the stockers on this video is there a chart compiled somewhere? I wish I was there with my '56 looks like fun!

    August 12, 2007. Colesy posts the first Junior Stock note on the HAMB . Guys have been posting stuff and reading stuff ever since. It's now July 2015. That's a long time for a thread to keep running so there's obviously interest in the lowly Junior Stocker. Based on the video above and the York show etc, there is plenty of interest. I saw the Tension Car lives on. Tokyo Rose is resting. There has to be more cars out there either in process or done. With York being a memory now, the future of the Junior Stock revival is now the hot topic. So here it is. If you have ANY Junior Stocker you are working on or intend to , please chime in. We're trying to get an accurate count of what's asleep in America from the old days that mattered. Can you speak up even if you don't want to divulge all the details of your build?? We're now at 11405 posts and 8 years thus far. Let's keep on.....
    Thanks......

    And remember, NHRA decided a couple of years ago to once again allow "certain" older cars back into the Stock Classes. They are not referred to a Junior Stock however; in fact, the Stock Class originally was comprised of Top Stock, Junior Stock, and Little Stock, and only Junior Stock type cars have seen the nostalgia resurgence.

    not really a junior stock but was run as a super stock car and was owned by one of the well known junior stock builders of the day. this car was last owned by Alex Jarrell. car was bought from him in 1979 after he retired from racing. i have owned since then. car is sitting in my barn awaiting restortation and will be given to my great grandson when he is old enough to respect the history car has.

    I have a 56 Bel Air that I really want to build into an era correct Junior Stocker. It has never been at the drag strip and is REALLY, REALLY rough. Actually, it was sold new in Anchorage Alaska....Went through the Alaskan Earthquake....And looks like it did. LOL.

    However, since there are a couple of trucks and cars ahead of it, who knows when I'll be able to start on it.

    I think that 150 Handyman Wagon eventually got painted white, and was always a Wagon. I know the YOO HOO TOO 56 Sedan Delivery got built into a Station Wagon after being sold to Supinski; is that the car you're actually thinking of? I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    This racer was a "Bucks Up High Roller"for this period of time.A floor jack and two great looking Jack stands.Not a bumper jack or a concrete block in sight.

  26. True, but he had plenty of room in the back of that '57 SD to carry them as well as some slicks and tools.

    Check out the Olds in the background. That's two for one on trippy paint jobs! 11063820_1646066328972210_2300630297025865720_n.jpg

    Oh the humanity!!! I knew about YOO HOO TOO, but I thought Dianna's Delivery wound up in Canada. What a waste in my eyes, but I can understand "converting" an already prepped and winning car; at least he got rid of that awful grille Dianna had in the car. There's a guy over on Tri-Five.Com that's making his 55 Sedan Delivery into a "windowed" Delivery; another bad move I think, but it's his car, so whatever. Thanks for the enlightenment, but I'll never get those pics out of my mind. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
     
  30. Butch, This what you did back then to stay competitive. Nothing more. They weren't collector material by then anyway.
    You think this is bad? What about the guys who sawed the split windows out of 63 Corvettes in 1964, to make them look like new cars?
