1955 Oldsmobile Super 88 Junior Johnson Reserved Parking Only Sign
1955 Oldsmobile Super 88 Junior Johnson Aluminum Parking Sign
Robert Glenn Johnson Jr. (June 28, 1931 – December 20, 2019), better known as Junior Johnson, was an American NASCAR driver of the 1950s and 1960s. He won 50 NASCAR races in his career before retiring in 1966. Robert Glenn Johnson Jr. was working the ground of the Johnson family farm behind a mule when his older brother, L.P., offered him the chance to drive a race car. Junior knew almost nothing about racing, but he had driven fast cars making moonshine deliveries from the Johnson family’s other “business” along Carolina backroads, so he hesitated only a moment before heading to the track. He needed a minute—he had been plowing barefooted, so he figured he needed to head to the house to get shoes to race. “When I got into racing, I already had the experience I needed,” Johnson said years later. “I didn’t have to learn how to drive fast. I already knew how to do it.” In 1955, Johnson began his career as a NASCAR driver (No. 55). In his first full season, he won five races and finished sixth in the 1955 NASCAR Grand National points standings. He was driving the D&L Motors 1955 Oldsmobile owned by Jim Lowe and Carl Beckham, a Super 88 2 doors sedan equipped with the powerful Rocket V8 engine. In those days, beating Junior Johnson on a dirt track was a big deal. Competitors often needed a smart, slick move to deny Johnson, a driver from the old-school mold who squeezed engines, tires and frames for all they were worth. For Johnson, it often was win or crash.
