STOCK CARS!!!!!!!

Guess I spent too much time reading those Bizzaro Superman comics when I was a kid. Here's what a real stock car looks like in my 1/25th scale parallel universe that had just a little different evolution of the "stock car racer". Seems that mine would still be built from a real stock car just like Ralph, Cotton, Bud and Smokey did it. Jr. is about thirty four so it would be about right 'cause his dad won his last race at forty and his last Daytona pole at forty two.

Back in the mid 80's while attending a race at Michigan International Speedway there was a display with one of Fred Lorenzens 65 Galaxies. I remember looking at it very closely and saying to myself "That really is a 65 Galaxie!" As much as I respect todays drivers I have to say it took a lot more %$#@ to drive one of the older "stock cars" 150 MPH than it it takes to drive one of todays cars 190MPH.

Cool model Mitchum.............Raisin
