Really cool build.  Especially like the detail of the air vents poking out of the window openings.

I love this car. Sal was a Chicago guy. I had to do one of his cars. The color is 1970 Cadillac Cinnamon Firemist.

Great replica, don't see many USAC cars modelled.  Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the info. I saw the USAC stockers run at Texas World Speedway back in the seventys. It was a dual race with stockers first and then indy cars. I think it was around 1972 but I'm nor sure.  I think Johncock won the stock car race but I cant remember who won the indy car race.

Was Johncock in a Chevelle for that race. Numbered 25?

for some reason I'm remembering a yellow #28 Monte Carlo.  But I might have my memorys mixed up. Does "racing reference" cover usac races?

The yellow 28 car was Hoss Ellington’s car circa 73-4 . Wasn’t this car was it

As it turns out that twin race I went to see was  in 1973. 

that was the first time usac had the twin  race at texas world. I found results for the indy car part of the dual races but nothing for the stock car race. I really can't remember that 25 car at all. Other than Racing Reference I have no idea how to find the results for that 73 stock car twin race. Like I said I might be misremembering about that yellow 28 car.

I’m a big fan of the old USAC stock car series. I attended several at the Milwaukee Mile and Kaukauna. It’s always interesting to see them modeled so well. I’ve built a few myself. A Jack Bowser Torino. A Don White and Butch Hartman Dodge. I have a Dick Trickle Fairlane and Norm Nelson Road Runner in the works, but I’m in need of decals to finish them up. Might anyone have any suggestions as to where I might get them?
