These kits got me started back in the car side of the hobby, but I kinda got burned out on them, and began to find hotrods and sportscars much more satisfying to build. Still, I'm happy with most ofthe NASCAR models I built, and the ones I still have are sitting proudly in the case. Here's a few of them:

Dale's Wrangler T-Bird:

Alan Kulwicki's Zerex T-Bird

Mark Martin's Stroh Light T-Bird:

Mark's Folger's T-Bird:

Davey Allison's Busch Series Lumina:

Bill Elliott's "Thunderbat"

Dale's Bass Pro Shops Monte Carlo:

Mark's SynPower Taurus:

And Rusty's Miller Light/Harley Davidson Taurus:

Seems like a good way to break in the the new section B)

Thanx!!
The Wrangler car was regular Testors blue and yellow, the Stroh car was Model Master Blue Angel Blue, and the Zerex car was regular Testors red and white. For the Zerex car, I cut most of the decals apart and painted most of the red.

Brian, I remembered you saying you used Blue Angel Blue for your Stroh car, and I used the same when I painted my 1989 car. (In 1/64). You're right, that's about the best match available in model paint right now.

I think this is the 4th board I've seen some of them on :D
