Today I decided to put my track together and pair up a few cars in what I call "posthumous matches". That is, those cars driven (or fielded) by "late great" legends. For this, I paired:
Yenko Vs. Yenko;
Dyno Don vs. Ronnie Sox;
Dyno Don vs. "Dandy" Dick Landy;
Yenko vs. Hurst --O.K., although they were not fully involved as drivers, Don Yenko and George Hurst were still legends nonetheless in the performance industry!
Although no longer with us, Dyno Don, Ronnie Sox, Dick Landy, and Messrs. Yenko and Hurst were true pioneers in the field of high-speed acceleration.

Enjoy the pics...Results are posted in the thread following the pics.

How and when did I miss the yenko chevelle?.
Just when I thought there wasn't very many pieces I needed and was missing.
To male matters worse it has my favorite redline wheels on it.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?.
I'd love to own one of those.
