I saw Hall's Chaparral win the race against the GT40s, Ferraris and Cobras in '65 at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Went w/a friend and his dad, it was a blast! My first exposure to what pot smelled like, the infield was a trip.

That Sebring was also remembered for the late afternoon drenching that put the track under water in several places about half way through the race.

Genious Thread

I think I am going to find "What was your first ride and how did you pay for it " a thread I started last year and get it rejuvenated again, you guys make my brain hurt with this one.

Are these the Yarborough/Allison cars that made the fight at the end of the race in 79 at the Daytona 500?

Dinger I didn't answer your response properly last night. Yes they are the Yarborough/Allison cars.
My original question is "what is the significance of these cars"

First race with cars cut in half? (look close before you judge me. I hate how they would do that to display the car, it isn't even a car anymore).

No that's not it. What these cars represent was so important that NASCAR built a display in their new museum around them to commemorate their significance.

Trivia thread

I don't think they are old enough to be the first cars with custom built frames and suspension in lieu of off the show room factory chassis are they?

Martin Sr. they are not realy cut in half there are bars on the other side of the wall and the back half of the cars are on display on the walls.

No that's not it either Garrell. I'll cough up the answer this evening if no one gets it before. The signifiance of story of these cars ( including Yarborough and Allison) has been mentioned many times by many people.

They look to be still the original bodies, is it that they were still using the original doors and sheetmetal?

How about the last cars to use the original chassis? It looks like it has even the stock front bumper shocks!
