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.
