I've got that old magazine here somewhere and I'm thinking this car was on the cover. Do you remember?

You said: Have you been on a FB page called VINTAGESUPERMODIFIDES hit pictures there are a lot of old pictures mostly Oklahoma but some others.

Is this a website you're referring to? In any case I'm not familiar with it.

Do you ever remember seeing the maroon/ black 55 Chevy that John drove?

At one time it had a Z/28 302 in it with 3 deuces.

No it's not a web site. It's a facebook site. If your on facebook just type it in on the search bar. Don't remember seeing that car but the pictures are over 1000.

Great picture Bill (83x) That's the car I remember. Was that from one of the CSIS Open Comps?

That's the Pete Hamilton Chassis that was featured in Stock Car Magazine.

That's the last car John ever drove before the cancer took him.

Again, THANKS SO MUCH for sharing the picture!

Did you know John Foster or Danny Bennett?
I've been doing a little more research on John Foster; John went on to do some Nascar Grand American Stuff after leaving Danny Bennett. So he did drive other cars I was not aware of. Sorry I stand corrected this car was NOT the LAST one he drove before he passed away.

Does anyone remember John in the Grand American or any other circuit during 1982 or after?
