The only rule you're breaking is not posting your full name. I assume you'll take care of that?  ;)

First, welcome to the forum.


Second, if you don't already know about it, there are some pretty knowledgeable folks over at Randy Ayers Nascar Modeling Forum. Here's a link to some '39 Ford stuff, and though the majority of the forum subjects are later than the period I think you're after, with a little searching, I'm sure you can find at least some of what you're looking for there, plus more links.





And racing historian Greg Fielden's book:


NASCAR, The Complete History is an updated edition of Consumer Guide s NASCAR Chronicle, a comprehensive pictorial history of American stock car racing from its moonshine-running roots to today s multibillion-dollar industry. The colorful, action-packed story is told the only way it can be told: with the full cooperation of the sport s sanctioning body, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR). The 564-page book features historic photos from NASCAR s unmatched collection, as well as rich stories about the characters, the cars, and the racetracks.
