"Bobby Allison is a driver I respect, but he had animosity toward Richard Petty. That's why I wasn't his biggest fan. He thought Petty had better equipment; I think Petty was a better driver. Allison drove a Chevy. I believe the Ford and Chevy rivalry became known to the public because of guys like Allison and Petty. I was a Chevy guy, but I liked Richard Petty. I always wanted to see him in a Chevy."
