Dick Trammell - 1974 NASCAR Modified Pinto

427 Chevrolet "Big Block," 4-speed manual, The car was built in CT in the late 1970s and raced by driver Mark Berndt in the NASCAR New England Modified Series. Gary Babineau, Babineau Metal Works, Auburn, IN did a masterful job of converting the car to "street legal." He re-powered it with a 427 Chevy "Big Block." The car has a close-ratio 4-speed transmission, and the original Frankland Quick Change rear end was confirmed and rebuilt by Jamie Frankland in 2019. In the 3 years that I've owned the car, we have never left our neighborhood without the car being videotaped by other motorists or people on sidewalks or sitting outdoors at restaurants. It's the most videotaped, "thumbs-up" vehicle I've ever owned! Always a big hit at Charleston Cars and Coffee.

Larry Van Gelder - 1969 Chevrolet Corvette

479 CID "Merlin Light" aluminum big block, Richmond 6-speed manual, I am the original owner and performed most of the full custom bodywork, as well as the mechanical upgrades myself. It rides on the original, slightly modified frame, modified suspension and Boyd's one-off billet wheels. Four Mikuni carbs converted to throttle bodies feed air for the Holley Commander 950 controlled F.I. through a homemade intake plenum atop a B&M blower. Hidden headlights swing down into the grille opening. It was our "daily" early on, but autocrossed for many years when it was still called "gymkhana" - including on a frozen lake the second week of ownership. Most of the body mods were made in 1978, with the nose changes in 1992. It's now driven nearly every week to car shows & cruise-ins. See more at www.NightwindVette.com. It is NOT and will not ever be for sale.
