Marty Robbins, country singer. Buddy Baker told a story about Marty. He said Marty wasn't a front runner, but at Daytona one year when he and Buddy were driving in a race, he said Marty passed him like he was sitting still. Marty ran all the way up front and ran off from the rest of them. He backed off after a while. After the race they inspected Marty's car and he had pulled out the restrictor plate. they fined the heck out of him. Marty said to Buddy, "I just wanted to see what it felt like to outrun everybody.
Cotton Owens and I think David Pearson^^^
One of the first "funny Cars". Look at that twisted frame behind the door.
Looks like "Miss Hurst" Linda Vaughn twisting nuts at the track.
The metal on that old Plymouth is crude but still a beauty.
The Red Vette may not be a true race car, but still a beautiful piece imo.
That Corvette is a beauty. Duntov had five grand sports made to race against the cobras. They were super light weight. Interesting story about them here: http://www.grandsportcorvette.com/gs/ All five still exist. Penske owns two of them.
The links is a good read, thanks for posting.
If GM would have given Duntov the permission to produce the 125 street versions, I think auto history would have been a lot different, those Vettes were so much better looking than a Cobra IMO.
