    What kind of body is that on Reggies car? It looks like a Chevette.

    That indeed is a Chevette. The car was reportedly built by Richie Evans.

    Anyone else notice that Reggie's #44 has the large "Firestone" logo on the front of the roof but the car has four Goodyear tires on it?

    Here's a true story about Cagle.

    He has a deal with Marvin at M&H, but Firestone is the tire of choice.

    Cagle, still wanting to win on the "Hot Set-Up", but not loose his deal, has an M&H stencil made. He paints the sidewalls of the Firestones with a M&H logo right there in the pits and wins. He keeps his deal with Marvin, wins races and the pictures in the racing papers tell just half the story.

    I never would've thought of doing that, but that was Cagle's signature. Always using every angle and trick in the book. It worked.

    I had never heard this story, but I don't doubt it for a second. Cagle is definitely "Smarter than the average bear".

    Well I see it, but that brings up a question. First, what track is this picture taken at, and second, did they not allow Firestone's to be used there? Did Reg put that decal up there as a protest?

    Riverside Park Open tire rules back then. Most likely the Good Years were Faster. Mario was only loyal to free Fast tires.

I think that attribute has skipped a couple of generations.
    Hi Steve. I was hoping that you could possibly shed some light on the origins of this car;
    Thank you.
