Yes as to the 6600 cars. Perhaps not as ready as new belts and tires, but yes. after I posted this, I have had people texting me about cars that I have not thought of in years that are just setting.

Along these same lines, I wonder what happened to all of the '63-'67 Corvettes that used to run in Modified. Have all of these cars been restored back to original, or are there cars and cars just setting, not being raced?

Talking Re: Unused race cars, too

The older the "new factory cars" get, they might be sitting due to cost of engine updates. I know if I had more than one car I would be inviting friends or family to enter them. Mark C. has three cars in div. 1 and he seems to be having a great time.

I have wondered the same.
Old videos shows a bunch of the mid 60's Vettes in Modified Eliminator.
Cool looking cars.
I just wonder where they ended up at because Corvettes like that are not exactly a disposable type race car ( compared to say a Vega)

Recently we have lost quite a few super stock cars here in FL. All retired from racing and sold their cars. Eddie Diaz, Pat Clifford, Rebel Kid, Kenny McCoy just to name a few. Merril Schrimsher has his beautiful 66 Chevy II up for sale. Paul Forte has not run his car in quite a long while. My buddy Jay Slane has had some health issues that have kept him from racing much for the past 3 years. He is recovering from knee replacement surgery right now and hopes to be back out racing some later in the year. Haven't seen John Douglas racing in a few years and he was a die hard racer. Not sure what happened to John. Tony Conte still has his SS/AS Camaro but he has not been racing much either. Probably close to retiring seeing he is in his late 70's.
I am sure it is similar in Stock but I don't keep up with them as much.

About those 63-67 Corvettes or even 57-62 i bet many of them got turned into Super Class cars with with tube chassis and what every part left over were sold in swap meets and in the hands of "collectors".

My boy finished in top 5 in Superstock and won a Divisional with Kenny
McCoy's old Duster our here in Div. 7. Kenny and his family came out
and ran it last year at Vegas Divisional and hopefully will get out again and run
it this year! He is a great guy and the car went to a good home.

Kenny is one of the nicest and talented racers you could ever know and we miss seeing him race down here in D2. I hope he is doing well. His car was one of our favorites too!
