Default Re: vintage stock car

Yeah, looking good! Out of the many rides that Wayne Stallsworth had, that was always a fave.

Randy Stallsworth once told me that at the beginning of the '66 season at Lakeside, that coupe was painted blue. Wayne flipped it, then had it repainted the reddish/orange. Wayne had a superstition about blue cars after that. Apparently, when he brought the car out the next week he hadn't told the crew of the color change, and at first, they thought some one had taken their space in the pits!

Nice job, can't wait to see that one up close. Please post more pics of it!

For those who've never seen the original, here is a little look:
