YEAH!!  Somebody else has the Car Life "Wagging the Dog" story!   Could someone PLEASE post the left-out pages of the article ?  I have not been able to find my copy for over a year now!  Cry     There is excellent race-to-race info that I need for an upcoming interview this month.   Thanks,   Ken

I added those in for you, Ken. Sorry about the initial screw-up.

A May 1967 article on "Baby Grands". Grand Nationals were of course the top echelon Nascar cars and the term Baby Grands
was in essence referring to Trans-Am style sedans as a smaller version of those.

A little insight into some of the Javelin race cars being campaigned in 1969 . This info comes
the May 1969 issue of Hot Rod magazine, courtesy of Robert Byng. There is confirmation that
the two different Javelins Bob Tullius drove in '69 were built by two different entities. The few
paragraphs below are taken from coverage of the Citrus 250, a Nascar GT race at Daytona 2-69.




The "other" Javelin Tullius raced in '69, built by Ronnie Kaplan's shop.

I'm 99% certain that the 33 car above is Revson's #3 car from the 1968 season.  Ted Roberts was in Follmer's #4 car from 68 (Roberts was #55).
