Richard Petty NASCAR King

When you talk of the King around race folks most will know you mean Richard “The King” Petty. He won 200 NASCAR races and raced back when the racers bought their cars off the show room and hauled them to the track on a small car trailer behind a pickup much like a dirt track racer of today. He also drove in the new era with the full out race cars. He never drove the template built generic cars of today but that is probably for the best.

Race cars have evolved and improved in speed and safety but the soul of the race car is not as real as it once was. We have collected some photos of old Petty race cars and want to share them with you. We have some other old race car photos on the site and will be adding more as time goes on. Today we have added two very different Petty cars on our Feature Cars section. One is a 57 Oldsmobile and the other is a 69 Torino.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
