Dan the only Pro Stockers I can trace to Barry Setzer are 1971 427 Camaro and the 1972 Vega with a 331 small block in it, Bruce Walker drove both cars. I myself have never seen a picture of a older Barry Setzer Pro Stock car. Maybe he ran a Modified car like Paul Blevins did before going into Pro Stock. Back in the early 70's a car could bounce from A/MP to Pro Stock on a weekly basis. There was a guy called Rick Barrett that drove a inline 6 cylinder Ford Pinto in NHRA Modified class (I or G gas)then switch motor's and race Pro Stock at the local area shows. On the west coast Pro Stock shows you had Butch Leal,Sonny Bryant,Bill Bagshaw,Dick Landy,Bob Lambeck,Lee Hunter, Yuill Bros. man those were the days and some great racing.
