Lee Roy Yarbrough's 1969 Nascar Ford

 Yarbrough's 98 looks a little worse for wear after his Rebel 400 win at Darlington in 1969.
The car was a Mercury Cyclone at the time. When Nascar approved the new long nose version it became a Talladega Torino. This car was racing at the San Diego Speed Festival and it looked incredible sliding around the road course and beating up on the much more modern field of Nascar Stockers.
