Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S116 70 ½ Chevrolet Camaro
The early years of Pro Stock racing saw some of the most exciting heads-up racing and the most intense fan support the sport had ever experienced. The 1971 season saw some spectacular matchups, with legendary racers like "Dyno Don" Nicholson, "Dandy" Dick Landy, Sox & Martin and the man from Malvern, Pennsylvania, Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins. Jenkins had been a well-known fixture at tracks since GM's factory racing days. As a privateer, Jenkins went on to represent Chevrolet and soon became one of their most successful racers ever. This 1970 ½ Camaro was the first car that Jenkins built specifically for the class, and its track record with Jenkins, Bruce Larson and later, East Coast racer Richie Zul is nothing short of legendary.
Grumpy's Toy VII has been painstakingly restored to its original race configuration, including a correct "512" cast-iron 427 block, aluminum heads, and Weiand tunnel ram with "period correct" 750 cfm Holley double-pumper carbs. Additionally, the Camaro was finished in its original race livery and looks like it emerged from a time machine. It was recently featured in Super Chevy magazine and is in concours condition.
Grumpys Toys is available online and in book stores now. Check out
Amazon.com for a look inside.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S115 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda
This is the very car that "Mr. Four-Speed," the legendary Ronnie Sox,
piloted to 14 dominating wins in the 1971 NHRA season. The '71 'Cuda
represented the pinnacle of performance for the Chrysler factory drag
racing program and also for the Sox & Martin team, as oppressive weight
breaks, the discontinuation of the Hemi and rule changes favoring
tube-framed small-block racecars conspired against Pro Stock Mopar racers.
Nevertheless, the Sox & Martin '71 Hemi 'Cuda's spectacular racing success
that season stands proudly in the record books.
The 'Cuda has been treated to an extensive restoration to its 1971 race
configuration and is in exquisite condition. It sports the best that the
factory had to offer that year, including the famous 426 Hemi with
dual-plug cylinder heads, dual quad intake and of course, the 4-speed
transmission that Ronnie Sox shifted with such virtuosic skill. It is
finished in the original eye-grabbing, red, white and blue "Sox & Martin"
livery and never fails to draw huge crowds.
Bill Bagshaw's NHRA Pro Stock "Red Light Bandit" 1970 Hemi Challenger
This 1970 Hemi Challenger was owned and raced by Bill Bagshaw in NHRA Pro
Stock drag racing from 1970 to 1973. The car made its debut in 1970 at the
NHRA U.S. Nationals, and won "Best Engineered" at the event. It was
featured in the November 1970 issue of Hot Rod magazine. John Gastman of
Roanoke Motors Chrysler/Dodge in Roanoke, IL owns the Red Light Bandit. He
purchased it from a private owner as part of a package deal back in 1994.
In January, 2011, Gastman called on Bucky Hess, and his son Travis Hess, at
Bucky's Ltd in Martinsburg, WV to restore this historic race car. Bill
Bagshaw, the original owner and racer, provided an enormous amount of
information to Gastman and Bucky during the restoration of the Challenger.
Bagshaw became part of the restoration team when he agreed to rebuild the
Red Light Bandit's 426 Hemi motor at Ron Shaver's Racing Engines in
Torrance, CA. Using pictures from magazine articles and build pics, Bucky's
fabricator, Cole McAllister, expertly returned the body to 1970 condition.
The talented artist Nelson Grimes re-created the lettering to "as raced"
appearance, using both gold leaf and white gold leaf materials. The final
product is stunning.
Drag Racing's Glory Days, Part 1
This documentary, hosted by Dave Despain, features incredible footage from
the 1971 NHRA SuperNationals in Ontario, Ca. There are neat interviews with
Dick Landy and classic footage of Top Fuelers and Funny Cars. This
two-parter is 30 minutes in length.
Pro Stock Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
Some pictures that I took of Pro Stockers back in the '70s and '80s along
with a clip from the Diamond P video "Decade Of Thrills" Note... the last
photo, at 6:43, before the video clip is one that I took from the
grandstands at the '83 US Nationals showing Lee Shepherd in the lead at
that point. But as the video shows, Bob Glidden drove around him to take
the title. Great Racin'!!
