Who is Smokey Cook? - Until the recent participation of Toyota, Smokey was the last person to run a foreign car in a NASCAR cup race. On August 16, 1963, Smokey ran an MGA at the Bowman-Gray Stadium, a ¼ mile short track.
How to recognise a fellow MGA owner when separated from the MGA? - Easy... dirty fingernails, a distinct lack of skin on knuckles, roasted feet and lower legs, frostbite on tips of ears and back of neck, depleted bank balance (often combined with lots of earache from partner!). Over developed right leg muscles caused by heavy brake pedal pressure, pronounced flattening of glutus maximus muscles due to lack of seat cushioning. But the biggest giveaway of all is the biggest grin you have ever seen!
