Before 1971 and the Pontiac, there was this Conkle Cadillac in 1970 :





Another one in gold

that red and white low top coach is a 68 MM. be interesting to see how long they ran it before they swapped it out. but as you go threw it appears like every 5 years a new one shows up. but that first set of pictures this 68 is in the trucks are chevy 70's I would guess these are the same. the black and white with the combo in it. that one is a 70 MM. I would guess different days and different races or practice all have different cars on standby duty. you don't know if they considered it a pain in the back side or good money for little work. some people like the races some like the rodeos. it all makes for a long day with little action most of the time. that black and white one has the appearance of a 72 CB

Hmmm, looks like the combo had a little trouble getting to the scene on the grass... A little slippin' and slidin'?
