You're still safe. The Challenger didn't race in NASCAR. It was run in the TRANS-AM series where they ALWAYS raced turning both left AND right :lol:

Nope, just another Green one which was Sam's backup Car driven once by Ronnie Bucknum and once by Tony Adamowicz.

Nice job on your model. Looks like a clean build. I know what you mean about Frank (Slickpaint) I have to see his models all the time and next to my builds. He is one of my best friends and one of the guys in my build group. I have been becoming a better modeler because of him. You should see his real car!!!!! He doesn't like me talking him up. He gets all Posted Image LOL!!
I like those early Trans Am cars. Looks real good.

Matt, I stand corrected. The sentence should have started with "That" not "The". Thanks.

I think that Trans Am "Show Room Stock Cars" are quite appropriate under here in the NASCAR section. Really no other place to put these types of models. That Model looks GREAT in here! :D

Dave has restored both the #77 and the #76 Trans Am Challengers. They both look alike. He also restored a Petty built NASCAR Latemodel Challenger that was built using the MOPAR Kit Car race cars that MPC kitted and later AMT reissued as the Sprt Dart. MPC never did a Challenger version of those kit cars in a scale model.
