Good luck at Byron! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

Here ya go, Mike.....more Byron.
^^^That 57, 4 door, Hardtop, looks like it could have been a for real Junior Stocker at one time, with the tow bar tabs on the front bumper. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
Long Live Junior Stock.
You built a very nice car. The jr stock tri 5 chevys have always been one of my favorite drag cars. I sent you a PM about rear wheel size.
My son at the HAMB drags against Tim's (Junior Stock) wagon.
Found one more photo hope it hasn't been posted yet.
Looks like he made the finals with the two windshield stickers.
Thanks for sharing Loudbang! I forwarded the picture to George and here's his response:
"Never saw that photo. That was taken on our honeymoon in 68. The blushing bride is probably somewhere along the fence wondering "What the hell have I done." 49 years later I guess it all worked out"
Saw your car at Mokan Saturday. Very cool!
Sent from my iPhone using H.A.M.B.
That was good of you. That's why I do it to bring back good memories for the members.
Had a great time at MoKan making passes next your son Mike.
To everyone that has not seen this one in person the pictures on here don't do it justice. Very nice car for sure.
Me and "The Man".
Some times stopping for Coffee has it's benifits. Stopped for coffee to visit with my Vocational Mechanics instructor and he donated a couple carbs to the project....Thanks Tom!
Plans for 2018:
Get George back into the car
Well all the photos in the Jr. Stock thread disappeared during the crash. But I went back and found them again
Some were posted in here before but better to have them in multiple places in case they get lost again.
See them here:https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/nhra-junior-stock.201085/page-446

That's my older brother's 57. He's owned it since high school, in 1968, and raced it off and on, since about 1969. This was with a few different engine and driveline combinations. Most of the time this was at Mid-State Dragway in Havana ILL.
Here's a couple of early photos, taken in about 1969, or 1970.
Hmm who's the little kid in the rear seat? I believe he has a black 55 now. BTW the tow bar tabs were used to tow to the track through 1995 or so. When I restored the car, I put them back on as a nod to its former life.
Ummm......No comment on who the little kid is....Except that by now, he's probably a, (somewhat), old fart, with too many cars. LOL.
Mike, i found another vintage pic in the "vintage shots..." thread, so next time you'll have to look for a trophy gal for your race adventures ...
A few new goodies that will go on for the Meltdown Drags if we ever get caught up on some other projects...and....George will be driving at the Tri-Fives this year!
Very, Very Cool.
There are 2 Tokyo Roses at this years Tri Fives. George is driving one and admiring the other....unbelievable detail on the little car!
A shot from Bangshift at the 2018 Tri-five show
Mike it seems the back of your car is all I ever see. HaHa
This time was really special though. Watched Mr. Cureton from the stands at Tulsa in 67 and 68 but I think this was my favorite view.
And not to mention, it's a beautiful car! A lot of money building the car, a lot more getting it to the track and actually running it, the final outcome, absolutely priceless! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
