A friend of mine over on Facebook  Tim Walker who is a life long friend of Bobby Allison has been working with some others to create a Bobby Allison tribute complete with a period correct hemi. I thought you might like to see some pictures of it and Bobby giving it the once over.

This is a volunteer project with many donations. I am happy for Bobby to see this coming to life. Steve Leavitt now retired built the chassis and while it may not be 100% historically correct  it is a really well done close approximation. Bobby has seen a lot of tragedy with the loss of both his sons and then the unexpected death of his wife recently. He really needed this lift and his good friend Tim Walker was there to start the ball rolling. Hat's off to him.

One of the best looking Daytona's to hit the tracks ever!
Bobby has had some real bad luck with his family and surviving the 87 crash was a miracle indeed! pity

My LA friend built a '22' replica back in the 90's and I got to drive it on the streets of San Fernando in 2004.
Built with a 426 wedge race-motor and hemi 4-speed for track duty.
It was awesome and the most fun you can have with your clothes on lol...

What are those spindles from?  Presently I am using 2" drop spindles with a spacer adapter so I can run the nascar rotors.
