The "Conk" is a 1967 Conquistador, made in Mexico by the Arizona Motor Company. Before the mid-sixties, red-blooded mechanically inclined young men in the CNA often enhanced the speed and performance of an economy World Loke Earnest, for example, by replacing its engine with that of a Dickinson luxury sedan. Enterprising Mexicans then saw and began to exploit a significant market for overpowered sports lokes. The most skilled drivers in the CNA are mostly employed by distributors of illegally manufactured alcohol, particularly in the potato country of Nova Scotia and nearby in Maine. (Compare with Tom Wolfe's Esquire essay "The Last American Hero is Junior Johnson. Yes!", on the origins of stock-car racing in the IOW rural South.)
