Thanks for making my day. It was great seeing beautiful pictures of cars and drivers I wasn't that familiar with. Also didn't realize just how many Ben Cook cars there were. Wasn't that # 63 a Trevis chassis? :yessss:

Since we're talking lower budget 80's...here's one of my favorites. Bill Glenn - I'm thinking circa 1989. I worked on this car as a youngster.

Scott - you had asked in a previous thread how Bill was doing (just noticed today that had asked). Last I knew he was still up a kicking. He's tinkering with boats and motorcycles these days. And I will look for a pic of the all-orange Greg Lamey you asked about too.

I think the 22MA is Mark Plummer. I know I recognize the 55, but I can't put a name to it. Maybe early Billy Sims?

I think the 75 is Bobby Strawser and the 55 Steve Young.

Yes that is Craig Fry in the 88. How about Tom Bear in the 79 Glen Clarke in the 85 and Im going out on a limb but Im thinking maybe George Furgeson in the Zack #3. I can remember seeing that car a few times. That yellow 56 and the 11n I have never seen. The 55 is that a Gene Jenkins car? John Matifailo in the 77 I probaly spelled his name wrong. How about Charlie Lester do you have any pics of him? Keep them coming they sure bring back the memories.
Im not only going up the rails on a crazy train, but Im behind the throttle and getting paid to do it.
