Need reference

Recommended Posts

I just dug  the Dale Earnhardt '88 Monte Carlo out of my stash and want to build a well detailed model ( I won't be going crazy with it though ) I am primarily a drag car modeler, though I have built Stock Cars in the past. I was wondering if anyone has any reference pics of the engine, chassis etc. The decals are ruined ,so I'll be going up to Southern Motorsports and Hobbies to get some new ones. I live about 100 mi from the Childress museum. One of these is in there , but last time I was there ,the hood was closed. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I just did a search on Google Images for 1980 NASCAR Engines and Chassis and these popped up.  Hopefully they help.  There were many more pictures to look at.

2 pics for you.. The interior shot is of Tim Richmonds 87 Monte carlo. The engine pic is from a 86 Monte.  Both should be very close to what Earnhardt would have run!
