Its sad what Pro Stock has morphed into today. You need around $3 1/2 Million to get to the starting line today for a single season. Todays cars remind me of NASCAR jelly bean cars. Like Stock elim. the rules have slid into Jr. Super Stock or Modified production. My opinion is the AHFS is a joke but hey....Its my opinion so like it or not. I do not care. I'm just happy to have been around when it all started.

I hear you and agree 100%. Today's Pro Stock is like a NASCAR version of the class, totally unrecognizable from its original concept.

To me, the Pro Stock class ended when they stopped resembling production vehicles; when they started using body styles that were never V-8 powered and especially those that were front wheel drive vehicles originally.

My favorite (and as far as I'm concerned the best) Pro Stock era is the Bill Jenkins/Sox&Martin/Dick Landy/Don Nicholson/Wally Booth/Don Carlton/early Bob Glidden/Gapp & Roush and etc., era.



P.S. Glad to see you post. I was wondering the other day what happened to you because I haven't seen any posts from you in this section of the forum.

By the way, this Volare is the ex Arlen Vanke, Charlie Castaldo Fun City Flyer Duster.
