The 60's,70's & even 80's cars look good, but the newer cars do nothing for me (jelly mould, all the same rounded shapes.!)
I virtually know nothing about this type of racing. Is Nascar, the same as what is called 'Stock cars' or 'Stockers' ? as called by many toy car manufacturers? ...and is Pro-stockers any different? Just wondered as I have loads of diecast cars of this type and thought should I group them all together? (I'm compiling photo's and gathering info for a website of my collection. Been planning for a long time.!)

I agree that it was better when the cars they raced were based on actual production vehicles that the everday driver could walk into a showroom and purchase. These things they race now have no relation to the Ford Fusion/Dodge Charger/Chevy Monte Carlo that for some reason they feel the need to call them anyway. Most laughable of all in my opinion is that the headlights, grilles, etc. are not even real and they use stickers or decals to give the appearance of that particular model.

As for stronghold's question, I am not very knowledgeable on this subject and cannot tell you if/how a "pro-stocker" is any different. But I do know the "SC" in NASCAR stands for "Stock Car" (NASCAR = National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing).

Thanks for the info Wampa-One ;)
I much prefer race/stock-cars actually based on 'Real' cars (don't see the point of some of these 'ridiculous' looking sports-racer/proto cars which have no role or connection to road going cars)

That's why they don't call it Stock Cars anymore.

There's a 5th volume with one more episode titled "ESPN's Ultimate NASCAR: The Families", which talks about the Petty family, The Allison family, and the Earnhardt family. When i find that DVD, I'll send pictures from it.

Somewhere in the 1980s I think it was, NASCAR changed from using highly modified stock cars to the tube framed specials seen today. The only time the cars were 'stock' was right at the very beginning about 1949. As soon as they started racing round corners they found the stock stub axles broke and ever since they have been using ever stronger parts. Because of the big circuits they race on, I think most people don't realise just how fast these cars are. Even in the 1970s NASCAR cars were able to lap the big ovals like Talladega at over 200mph. More recently they have restricted the power of the engines but they are probably no faster than then but are more reliable. They still run pushrod OHV engines and one four barrel carb. We don't have oval racing in this country but I do know it is very technical and the more cars there are running together the faster they go. One year at the Daytona 500 they has 34 cars running in a draft and they were all passing a given point in less than three seconds.

To answer the question about Pro Stockers - that is a class of drag racing car which use the steel body centre section of a late model coupe but the rest is pure race car. I think nowadays the best of them are doing the quartermile in less than 7 seconds. In comparison the best Top Fuel dragsters are now doing it in less than 5 seconds and finishing the quarter mile sprint at more than 300mph.

There is actually a category in oval racing named pro stock in north America, one of the many categories of this discipline, such as Street stock, Super stock, Super street, Late model, Limited late model, Super late model,
