The Cars of Richard Petty



I don't know if he actually builds model cars, but I've been to the Petty museum and it's loaded with shelf after shelf of his diecast collection from Franklin Mint, Danbury, etc. etc. He also has one heck of a gun collection.

I've visited his museum before. He also has had quite a few models donated from people who have built various replicas of his famous #43 through the years.

A bit off topic, but does anyone remember that famous photo of Mark Martin holding a copy of the other mag from 1990 or therabouts?
