yea, Bob did drive the #4 car as well, but I lean toward tommy on this one, 'cause of that head tilt, and that grand am was rumored to have a titanium(or maybe magnesium) body on it, sounds like a "fish" story to me. but tommy did drive that grand am for a time, just before he made his brief jump into Cup in the 80's. whether it had that alloy body or not, that car had 'em snookered all over Va.

It is Tommy Ellis. Bob drove the car before the 311 Cubic Inch era. The Jacksons were one the first to take advantage of the weight break that came with running the smaller powerplant successfully as I recall
