Chargin Charlie and Buddy's Charger


Recommended Posts

What can I say?......I like Chargers and Chargin Charlie  Glotzbach exemplifies the best of them. This 72 Charger replicates the 72 Daytona 500 ride where he placed 2nd two laps down to A.J. Foyt's Woods Bros. Mercury Cyclone.  Some of Charlie's best career was with Cotton Owens, placing 2nd in the 69 Daytona previously. 4 wins, 50 top tens and 12 Poles out of 124 races to his credit while mainly driving Mopar. 

Buddy Arrington's #67 1974 Nascar Season ride when restrictor plates all but choke out the big Cubic Inch behemoths, Chaotic rule changes up to mid season and the country's gas tanks were still tender from rising gas prices of the 73 Oil embargo. After all said and done, Buddy placed 30th in the points.

When time permits, Race track photos are coming.....
