Thanks for sharing this build.  That car was built less than a mile from my house.  From my understanding of the story, Junior Johnson helped Travis Carter build a race shop and also provided the equipment and parts for the cars.  I think Junior used this team as a test bed for some of his ideas.  Anyway, there was one of the older cars up on a pole in front of the shop.  Many of the locals claimed that was the only pole Jimmy Spencer would ever claim.  Had a chance to meet Jimmy many years later at the North/South Shootout at Concord Speedway.

Always liked Jimmy and that's a great model. Nice build! And the story about the pole may be true bout the best hit he ever made was when he punched Kurt Bush. Very entertaining driver...
