Great response so far for the earlier rounds that included Coupes, Sedans, Gremlins, Pintos and Mustangs... Now it's time to move on to Falcon bodied racers...

Let us know your choice for favorite Falcon for dirt, and one favorite Falcon for asphalt.

When responding, please delete what auto populates in the Subject Line, and replace it with the car# and/or driver's name(s) that you are submitting.  (It'll make it easier for folks to scan the thread and see some of the choices.)

We all have our favorites... Different eras...  Different body styles...  And we all had our favorites.  There were cool coupes... and sedans... and Gremlins... and Pintos, and Mustangs....  and Falcons.... and Chevettes... and Vegas.... and Corvairs.... and Valiants..... (and Chevy II's, and Pacers... and maybe a few others...)

This time around, it's all about what was your favorite dirt modified or sportsman Falcon, and what was your favorite asphalt modified or sportsman Falcon....

Remember, just one for dirt, and just one for asphalt....  

After a few days, we'll tally it up, and then move on to other body styles.  Then, if this all works out, over the next few weeks, we'll figure out your overall favorites for each.

So for this round, let's find our what you have as your favorite Falcon ever... 

Please remember to delete what auto populates the Subject Line, and replace it with the car# and/or driver's name(s) that you are submitting.  (It'll make it easier for folks to scan the thread and see some of the choices.)

Give it some thought, and let's see what you come up with....

If you have an original picture, and know how to post, please do.  If the car appears somewhere in The Vault, let us know what page, or cut and paste the link here so others will know which particular car you are referring to.

Thanks guys,

3Wide

Tom Hager on dirt, Maynard troyer on asphalt.  I believe one of Troyer's Falcons was the converted street legal car that was lost recently in Tim Pitts's garage fire.

Gerald Chamberlain's Falcon, no doubt!  Never got to see it run a whole lot but saw a lot of pictires.  It was so low to the ground that it would remind me of a sportscar.  Most important, Chamberlain kick a lot butts with those cars.  Matthew Payne
