Richard Petty came to Georgia

He came to the old Byron raceway that's in rock throwing distance from the house. He got the 'key to Byron' (the town) etc.

Anyway I got hammered and blistered plus there was a car/truck show.

WARNING you may see a chebby or two. I took over 300 pics but here's some of them.



454 bored out .125 over





















































































Stroker motor with 250 shot











































Turbo diesel dune buggy on cut boggers. Guy said it had 50 pounds of boost..







Yeah, that little boy was reving it up..


Moonshine still FTW!

It's old school, cv axles come out to both sides to a sprocket, then it's chain driven to the tires...
