 With out posting endless pictures of Gremlin bodied Modifieds i did think there was a few very cool non Chevs that merrit being on here .


 Geoff Bodines Valliant pictured here at Trenton was a rocket and the car that made him famous .


 Unknown Western NY Valliant modified , i always thought they looked great on a race car.

 
 A very unique Hemi powered 66 Cuda dirt mod

 
 Dave Kniesels Pacer Modified was very fast , and one of only two Pacer race cars that i ever saw.

 
 Kenny Weld said this was a Lincoln which is debateable but their is no debate that it changed dirt modified racing forever .

I was looking at that Lincoln a few years back at the DIRT museum in Weedsport (I think it may have been sold to someone in the Albany area since then) and the car was called the Orgasmatron (painted on the hood). If there are any Woody Allen fans out there, they might remember that the Orgasmatron was the machine (featured in the futuristic movie "Sleeper") and was used as a sex substitute in the 22nd century. I think that movie came out the same year the car ran at Syracuse.

Cool pictures.

Pinecrest - the picture on page 1 is actually Bill Walsh. Harvey Walsh, his son, also raced in the late '60's and 70's and still races TQ Midgets.

  Your absolutely right Bill and thank you for correcting me . I should know better since My dad and Bill were friends .

My first exposure to Stock Car racing (as a very young child of course) was watching Bill & Harvey race @ Flamboro in the late 60's. Since I was from Brantford, I cheered for them!

Geez, I remember those old days.  :-[

I used to cheer for Bruce Van Dyke (I was a Ford fan even back then)  ;)

I remember Howie racing that car as well, it had a sound all of it's own! Seems to me before he started racing the #75 Mustang, didn't he race a #99 Duster or a Dart painted up just like the Super Bee. I don't think he had it that long???

 Great to see that pic of Ramplings 1965 Plymouth , and yes it was a very big deal to have a brand new car at the EX . The car was painted sort of a Candy Apple blue metallic and it was as shiny as a new dime . On the down side Lelliot and Cook would lap it a couple of times in every feature .

That car looks like it was a survivor from the "Mad Max" movie.  ;D

I thought 1500 hp Can-Am cars were scary and dangerous.

I was so horribly wrong.

I found that old Dodge Charger dirt car on Kiiji.

Not too much left there I think.

There was a A-body Dart Street Stock on EvilBay a while ago, but they wanted like $10,000 for it.

I love Mopars but I won't pay crazy money to race them.

there is also a picture of Rampling's 69 Plymouth in John Bisci's book "Lancaster Heroes". One question re the Reddick/Scannell Dodges. Did they actually try to run a unibody car as an experiment (instead of full frame)? Also I believe one of the super bees may have been sold to Milton's Jim Plant (#98?).
 Previously mentioned also was that slime green cuda (#89?) out of the Lorne Wise Garage in Burlington which had a lot of different drivers, including Cookie at Cayuga . Man, late models were diverse in those days. Besides the #75 mustang, Ken Stewart (of Lin-Ken Engineering fame) also had a couple of full size Torinos built to Nascar LM Sportsman specs and also seemed to have a lot of different drivers (Hollis, Hudson, Goodale, etc) . (Still looking for a picture of Pete Bennett's Studebaker)

thanks for the Link to Bisci's website. I've been talking to Kenny Troyer (Maynard's son) via the RaceNY website re one of his dad's fast Ford Falcon Modifieds making it to Canada. If I remember correctly, in the fall of 1971, Burlington's Ken Andrews, a reknown supermodified pilot, ran an ex Troyer Falcon at Stoney Creek's Speedway Park. The track late models at that time were the heavy, centred seating, 305 ci Lancaster type cars, so the local late models as we knew them (once Cayuga was finished for the season) had to run as modifieds! I recollect Pete Hudson running Ken Stewart's #75 1963 Fairlaine with the mods.
 Anywho, does anyone know if Andrews preserved that Falcon bodied modified and if there are any photo around of the car "back in the day"?
