MCACN Muscle Car Of The Week Unser
V8 Radio Bobby Unser 1969 Torino
Welcome to a super-special episode of V8 Radio, the companion program to the 200th episode of Muscle Car Of The Week!    In this episode, we’re airing the complete interview we recorded with 3-time Indy 500 winner Bobby Unser recorded at the 2016 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals MCACN in Chicago.   This interview was a special stage presentation where Unser gave us the story about the amazing 1969 Ford Torino Pike’s Peak racer he drove to victory in 1969.    The legendary cast of characters in the story includes Bunkie Knudsen, Smokey Yunick, Bill Stroppe, Holman & Moody, and many others, and Unser tells the fascinating story as if it happened yesterday.   The car is a purpose-built stock car built by Bill Stroppe and Holman & Moody and is powered by a Smokey Yunick built Boss 429.    Unser had not seen the car since ‘69, but he was surprised to learn that the car remains in as-raced condition today.   He went on to share many stories of racing in general, and how to be a winner not only on the track but also in life, and a great recollection of a huge party after a winning snowmobile racing season!  The display was a huge hit at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, and the car is a very special piece of racing history in the Brothers Collection.     Enjoy the show!
