Fox sent a 500 out too did he not?  Who else drove for him, he used a bunch of guys right?

Well I'm not that old either!  Not quite two decades before you but I can't really recall either.  I was just a puppy then, or am I just too old to retain it???  I don't know or can't remember.   What are we talking about again?

From talking to Charlie Glotzbach at the Monster Mopar he made it sound like back in 1969, drivers might drive one race for Baker, then the next week be driving for someone else. There wasn't a year long contract offer to many drivers back then. Most of them bounced from one team to another to try to complete the entire season. They would get 3-5 race deals, and only got paid a portion of what they won. If they didn't finish well in those races, they didn't make much ,and more than likely weren't kept around for the next couple of races.

Look at it this way, if it is that rusty it will be lighter, hence your cloned race car will be lighter. Smiley


I can't think of who drove a #3 car back then.
  Buddy Baker did at some point as I have seen pictures of him in the #3

Photoshop is great for fixing things in a picture, but then again there is something to be said for origional unedited pics too.

That aside, Al have you thought of trying to pick up one of those Engines that Petty Enterprises was selling a few years back. Not sure on the cu or HP of them, but I remember an article someone dropped on into a SuperBee at the Mopar Nationals this year.

  What I think I will do is try to get a wrecked stock car/ truck that is complete(might be cost prohibitive)that way I can slice and dice as needed.Put it this way,I haven't ruled out anything.I am moving to the heart of stock car country in about 6 weeks so it will be this fall before it gets underway.I've had people at Carlisle say to me ,how could you do such a thing to a 500.Wait till they see the stocker when they think its a real 500.That'll give them the runs scared puke for sure.OOOOOOOOwell. My goal is to have it come close to passing  tech.inspection. My goal is to bump up interest in older stock cars.

Well when those people ask you how you can do something like that to your 500, you should answer them by saying this. "Well I bought it this way back in 1969 off of a southerner"


That would raise some eyebrows.

Looking forward to seeing a stock car replica that is a 500 and not a Daytona or a Superbird.

Of the meets I have gone to there is no vintage stock car represintation out on the field other than the Aero or Winged Warriors meets.Very few people care about stock car history.Its drag cars that get the spotlight.

Thats true. I don't see many replica stock cars at any shows other than winged car meets. But not as many there now, as the marty Robbins clone is gone now, parts being used to restore a real Daytona. But there are still plenty out there.

Well I'm glad the parts are being used for a real one but I kind of liked the Marty Robbins car.  I'll miss it.
