The few I have from the 1982 World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.
Junior Hanley brought 2 cars in 82. Jr. Hanley drove this one.

Ex ARCA, ASA and local bullring crewdog. I remember when racing was really racing and the Talladega Express!!!
This thread needed a little jump start i see
This car was shown here a few days ago
Maybe even a week ago now. I meant to scan this pic sooner but forgot
It looks a little worse for wear in this foto.
4 flat tires rear bumper damage and the windshield is long gone after a long slide coming off T4 in the 1988 Daytona 500
I managed to find the results of that race online and it shows that Connie Saylor qualified the #99 in 30th. He made only 32 laps and was paid
$9645 for finishing in 39th position.
Im gonna guess his race ended right in front of us
Faster than a bullet from a gun
He is faster than everyone
Quicker than the blinking of an eye
Like a flash you could miss him going by
No one knows quite how he does it but it's true they say
He's the master of going faster. -George Harrison
Loving this thread! Great job, guys! Keep it up!
Bryan Brothers Racing Team: We'll see you "at the track"!!!
I've got an idea and I'll bet kkoether will go along. Can we change this to Semi-Official Cool Old Stock Car Pics Thread and include all stockers from the beginning through the mid-80s? Or maybe should we start a new thread by that title.
I started a thread entitled Historic Stock Car Photos on the HAMB, but one of the moderators (after two-plus years) has decided that our thread would be more in keeping with the spirit of the HAMB if it went only through the mid-60s. He even deleted a couple of my comments when I pointed out the original post (which was almost exactly as above). Now we're looking for someplace to go. Last night, he closed our thread. Your call, Kev.

We all think how cool it is to see the old cars from our local track back in the good old days but this site has viewers from almost every state.
My fond memory is someone elses "never heard of him"
I think if people had to wade thru pages of unfamilar cars from unfamilar tracks it would defeat the original idea of this thread and might even create less traffic here.
Not that theres anything at all wrong with a thread for any old stock cars. Given the choice between more old race car pics or fewer race car pics I will always vote for more.
I just think a non NASCAR thread would make it easier to navigate. And I cant wait to make my own contributions to it
Perhaps it could be created in the dirt/circle racing forum
Either it hits and gets lots of eyeballs or it doesnt and it will disappear off page one in a few weeks
I like your thinking, Kev. It would keep everything but NASCAR off your thread. Thanks. I'll ask DannyB about starting a new thread over there. Thanks again.
To follow up on my Impala concept, here is a rendering of what a Ford Fusion might look like if they still built them like they used to...
The Unofficial, Self-Appointed Gloom & Doom Police...
The Charger presents a bit of a challenge. In stock form the Charger is much larger than either the Impala or the Fusion, and rolls from the factory on 20" wheels. With the mandatory 15" stock car wheels and tires it looks a bit out of proportion and definitely larger than the other two. Perhaps if I'm going to follow this to its logical conclusion, after I draw up a Camry I should look at something smaller from Dodge like the 200?
"An emphasis was placed on drivers with road racing backgrounds which meant drivers from open wheel, oval track racing were at a disadvantage. That led Tony George to create the IRL." -Indy Review 1996
Billboard outside of Alabama Intl Motor Speedway July 1988 I remember seeing the phrase Hurry Back Bobby everywhere that Summer.
Been a while since Ive had time to scan stuff; this is still where the old NASCAR stuff still goes, right?
As far as I'm concerned, Kev, that would be fine. I think both threads would grow a lot.
Just seems like theres too much all at once.
Id add something but anything posted will be bured two pages deep before 3 people even see it
Forget trying to make a comment or ask a question. No one will see it
Im pretty sure TF isnt going anywhere.
No need for the document dump
Joe Nemecheks Busch Car at Volusia Mall 1988. I cannot recall what model of car that was. Anyone?
I hadnt been to Daytona since 1988 until I went down last year
I went to this mall across the street from the track fully expecting to see a bunch of showcars on display and was disappointed to see they stopped doing this during Speedweek
The cost of sitting in the good seats has gone up a little bit since 1988
I was at the Petty museum in Randleman just last week, and I took this picture of a photo on the wall of Randy. It looked a bit Photoshopped - but it was still touching to see they had a tribute picture to him in the museum.
Something about the car doesnt look right either. The rear wheel looks smaller than the front and the front wheel doesnt look right either. Just seems like one should see dark in the openings of the front wheel
The wheels look too much like street wheels too
But like I said Im not slamming them, the wannabe racing historian in me always has to look for the inaccuracy
I visited the Petty museum in 2009. Really liked it. Which kind of reminds me of something I have in my collection from when we stopped in Level Cross on a family vacation in the early 1970s
I will try to remember to scan it later
