The Buck Kinney Special will be going on the block at Barrett Jackson . I actually wrenched ( changed the slicks ...lol) on this car when I was 19 years old living in Vancouver in the 80's . My roommate married Bucks daughter and we hung around his shop all the time .Being around this car and Bucks shop at that age was something I'll never forget . the ONLY Canadian ever to be inducted into the NHRA Hall Of Fame . The coolest car guy you ever met , untill one night my buddy Greg accidently knock over one of his brand new race cranks he had standing up on the shop floor ....LOL . I remember trailering this car to a event in Washington state and going down the interstate highway . and Buck was sitting in the car on the trailer breaking in the cam as we drove down the highway . He was CLASSIC cool old school !!!!!! he's now in his 70's+ and still going strong !!!Car wouldnt seem like a 'big" deal now ..but believe me it was back then . :)
