While Ned was associated with Ford for most of his career, he won the first of his two championships in a Chevrolet that looked kinda like this one, only larger. Here's my tribute build to the first Nascar driver I ever saw close up. Ned came to town in the mid-sixties to give a talk to the Royal Ambassadors at the First Baptist Church in Lancaster SC. He did a lot of that for the young people all during his career and made a lasting impression for good on a lot of kids through the years. Ned's been a true class act for a very long time.

Another great build ,Jerry. You must have the biggest and best collection of Vintage Nascar builds on the planet. Your copy and paste skills are top notch as well. I always enjoy viewing your post's.

Thanks Mark,

Sometimes being old has its advantages. While not new at the time, they were decidedly closer to being new when I built them than I am now. Funny how time slips away. LOL
