It's one of the (6) Weld cars built during the
winter of 75/76. This car like the other (5) built that winter is based
on Kenny Welds first generation designed modified he built while still
driving under the Wiekert Livestock # 29 colors.
This one is the Wichecki (probably spelled that wrong) # 74 that Walt Olsen first drove out of the box in the spring of 1976. Olsen lost the ride to Braxton and then bought the car building business from Weld.

I have been doing homework on this car for the past year now and although i was not around to see this car run, it seems that Bobby always ran pretty good with the car from the programs i have gathered. I haven't seen anything where he wrecked badly, and he ran really good at several tracks. I have been trying to gather a history on the car, so if anybody has any good stories, i would love to read about them. Look for the "Pink Panther" at a show near you in 08', courtesy of L.H.!|
