While I'm not a Tony Stewart fan, this car just begged to be built

I am a Tony fan and this is a great looking car. Nice job. Although a lot of fans dislike him, he bucks the trend and says what he thinks, NASCAR be darned!

That's cool. Did you have to paint the two tone? Looks pretty uniform.

I've never seen this paint scheme, but great job on the car! It looks the part.

I'm curious about the fade as well, is it in the decal or did you paint the orange to white? Regardess it looks real good.

Incredible job on the paint. That body style Grand Prix makes a good looking race car IMO.

I'm a Tony fan, after all he is from my State.  Loved it when he ran the Indy 500 also, I was there every time. You did a great job on the model. That is a lot of decals!

I enjoy seeing all your build's John and this one is no exception.  The paint fade looks really good.  I like Tony because he can drive the wheel's off anything he get's in.

Nice work. Who did the decals for this ride? I would guess Slixx, but I thought they were already out of doing NASCAR decals when this car raced.

 

And for the record, I have ALWAYS been a Tony Stewart fan going back to his IRL days. He was the first driver I really got back into being a fan of since the ole Alan Kulwicki days (Tony is no Alan, but he does bring certain other competitive qualities to racing). And yes, these years of Pontiacs were some of the best looking rides in NASCAR warpaint IMHO as they had a nice bit of style to them compared to the rather boring looking Monte Carlos.

You're correct, this was a SLIXX sheet :D

John, no matter what you build it always turns out super clean and nicely detailed. Good job!
