A super neat photo from Perry Marshall (LaMarr's nephew) of the Bob Hook 1970 Chevelle  on display in 1970 at the dealership. LaMarr had yet to race this pristine car. That's young Perry in the driver's seat. Perry's Dad, (LaMarr's brother) hand lettered the car. This is the car that won the ARCA "International 500" that season.

                                   Patrick Knight with Richard Petty
This is a rare photo of Richard Petty without his trademark sunglasses !
In 1973 when my Mother was the Kentucky State Representative for the Richard Petty Fan Club we were invited to Richard's Birthday party in conjunction with the Talledega race that summer. Perkins Chrysler Plymouth on Dixie Hwy furnished us with a silver Mint Julep cup engraved for Richard. The party was at the local Holiday Inn and the room had all dark trim and was barely lit, so Richard took off his sunglasses.
