 :) :)  I agree.  Very nice.   I was there that day.  What a spectacle  for a Mississippi boy who knew nothing but a 1/4 mile dirt track.

Never was Lorenzen fan, back then I was strictly hardcore Chevrolet: Holly Farms and Junior Johnson.  He lived eight miles from my house and was a legend for his "extracurricular" activities. That being said, Mark you have done an excellent job, as always, on this build.  I have followed many of your builds and am in awe of the detail you incorporate in them. Two thumbs up.
