This was the car I raced in 2010-2011 at Marshfield Motor Speedway (Wisconsin). The car was a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier modified for circle track pavement racing. My son originally purchased the former dirt track car to use as a backup for his pavement car, then decided to ask if I wanted to get back behind the wheel of a race car. (I had raced stock cars on dirt and pavement from 1986-1990, and driven in demolition derbies from 1979-2010) This is how the car looked the first night we raced it, at this point the only thing changed from the previous owner was add a lexan windshield, and change the car number. This is how the car looked after we redid the body, along with some suspension work. Ended up being the Marshfield Motor Speedway track champion in 2010 and finished 2nd in points in 2011. 7 fast times, 7 heat wins and 4 Feature wins.

My first car was a 1966 Mustang. I purchased it from my sister and brother-in-law on my 17th birthday for $100. I put a lot of work into the car and here's what it looked like a year later.

I still have the Mustang promotional pillow I found 40 years ago, not sure how many were made or are still around...
