    Smokey Yunick's #13 Chevy
    By 1967, Chevrolet had long since pulled entirely out of the sport, but Yunick entered an unsponsored Chevy Chevelle in the Daytona 500. It was driven by the legendary Curtis Turner, who promptly put the car on the pole. “In practice, it didn’t really do much. Here comes pole day, and he wins the pole. This would be like a Peugeot coming in and winning the pole today in a stock-car race. It was such a shock. It was so embarrassing to the factory teams.

    Only so much space, I think Junior has a good line-up here. In 3 years from now they will change some of the older cars.

    Charlie Spencer Short tracks and road courses.

    I wish they could have used Alan's Atlanta Underbird.

    Don’t think I saw a DW car on my initial skim through of the list, I’ll go through again when I have more time but that’s a pretty rough omission IMO

    At one time it was in private hands and fully restored by the owner. He sells a DVD with the full story. The latest update on this site says it was sold to Hooters in 2006.
