Well, I finished another one.  This is my version of a car that was driven by Ritchie Petty (Maurice's son).  The car started off as the AMT Raybestos Thunderbird.  I hated the paintjob on the box top, so I knew that I wanted to do something different with it.  The kit was missing a couple of pieces so I made the missing wheel back and the rear end cooler pump out of resin.  The decals were made by me and printed on clear decal paper.  I also wired the engine.

Here was my goal:

and here's the completed model:

Thanks, guys.  He only raced four races, so it's understandable that you may not remember this car.

I realy like this one - I like that you thought outside the box to create a petty car.
