Always looking something to do. In my quest to represent every year of the petty car I took on a project to create the 1992 fan appeciation tour car that actualy looks like a fan appreciation tour car. Racing champions issued a 1992 paint schemed pontiac but it was so wrong. I found an old one that had been repainted and was looking very ugly so i decided a resto was nesseary.The pix below show the work

i will have a poll for this topic. hope you enjoy

my pole question

Is the repaint an improvement over the original racing champions scheme?

Nice save!   You can drill the post holding the windows in so they can be easily removed. .
