    I found this cool video that features a tour Richard Petty's garage and a ride, on the highway, in his 1970 Superbird (7:25 min. mark).

    The garage is definitely awesome! Will have to see if I still have some pics of our time there.

    I viewing this video for the second time, I noticed that most of the dashboard gauges (rpm, water temp., oil temp. and oil pressure) are rotated to different degrees. This is to make critical readings easier to see on the track, at speeds up to 200 mph. Anything straight up was good and anything left or right was bad. Check out the 5:07 mark.

    Great photos! Thanks for posting.

    If I ever get to North Carolina, I will definitely have to stop at Petty's Garage.
