cars a beautiful work of art but they were super fast. Seemed like only the
best drivers, ever, got behind the wheel of the red coupes and coach that
Barney fielded. As a young fan of modified racing, back in the 60's, the
"Pops Torsion X" #14 epitomized modified racing and whenever it hit the
speedway, it had my attention. This was a special race car.
Other cars that grabbed my imagination and ones that I still consider "special" were...in no particular order:
#707 The Big Donkey....the one that Chamberlain and Ploski ran;
Parker's #659 GMC six cylinder;
#44 Cozze Coach that Taz won so many races with;
The #35A and #35B the Candy Cane racers fielded by Dallenbach and Massing;
#2 Lucky Jordan's cut down coupe;
Any of Buzzie's #00 coupes were also special race cars.
These race cars were so very special. Today's sport is lacking due to the fact that the uniqueness that these cars possessed is missing and possibly will be missed forever more in modified racing.
