I can't thank Jeff Gilder enough for making me feel so welcome on this board but he outdid even himself with his invitation to Saturday's show. I've got 48 Ol' Redneck Race Cars (1/25 scale) sitting in a show case as we speak while I try to get...

To try to catch the Hemis it seemed that Ford put their big Galaxies on a diet that made the weight loss regime of the drag cars seem like a trip to Baskins-Robbins. Let's just say that from film and photo reference and first hand interviews with...

Ford struggled with their '62 Galaxies on the superspeedways because of the boxy roof lines. While managing to register wins at both Charlotte and Darlington with the "boxtop" cars it was Lorenzen's win at the rain shortened Atlanta 500 that...
