Moose,, I knew you'd come through with a vintage photo,, love the rare shot of Mardy Maltais' Monza too. Mardy's car was a beautiful piece of work,, it blew us away the first time we saw it at Seattle, and he had an equally nice Vega before that. Eventually he moved on to Funny Cars.
I found some recent shots of the former Yuill car on the Bremerton Raceway site, courtesy of See It Imagery, but they are copyrighted, so I'm not able to post them I guess.

I worked at Thunder Valley Dragways in this era, and saw many obscure midwestern Pro Stockers come and go, as well as some big hitters, I will add what I can to this what I can.


John Hagen's Arrows



Laverty Performance (out of Iowa, if my memory serves me)


Rodekopf AMC


How about this pair of hitters from the cheap seats at Pomona, 1980, I believe.

Here is a picture of the Yuill Bros, car in its current form. I sold it a few years ago and a good friend has it. Great car, sometimes I kick myself for getting rid of it. These are pics from 2008 when I had it.

Talking Re: 70's & 80's Pro Stockers

Mr. Burton,, welcome aboard, and thanks for posting the shots of your former Monza, I wish your current Camaro had some historical tales to tell,,, actually it probably does, but we're talking Pro Stock here!
Take care, Tony,, hope to see you and the guys out there again next season.

Just a couple more of Bill Jenkins 'Grumpys Toy' Vega P/S, notice he was experimenting with different styles of hood scoops before everyone ended up using the common snorkel scoop...

Here's a few shots of some early Pro Stockers rolling though a Mecum Auction a couple of years ago...Sox & Martin '71 Hemi Cuda P/S and a couple of Bill Jenkins Grumpys Toys.
