Dale Earnhardt #3 Goodwrench Aerocoupe

8 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hey guys, I just picked up my '88 Aerocoupe and I'm excited to build a detailed tribute to one of the coolest cars to turn a lap in NASCAR. Does anyone know what happened to the 1:1 car or where I can find pics of it? My Google search keeps turning up Die-Cast replicas and grainy youtube videos that don't show me enough detail.

Any help is apreciated!

Thanks,

Steve

Hi John, The RCR page is the first place I tried. Not a whole lot of pictures are available online of this specific car. Probably because they want to change admision to the museum instead of posting pictures of all of the content. It's a good resource for current race teams though.

Hi John, I'm kicking myself now for discarding all of my old NASCAR mags. With Jonathan's sugestion, I found this link: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v115/Thundercracker/RCR%20Museum%20and%20Race%20Shop/Aerocoupe%20MC%20SS/?start=20

It's basically all of the close up shots that I was hoping to find. I guess whoever took these pics saw the car in person at the RCR museum. Thanks for the incredable offer to share your potential pics wiht me. By no means stop for my account. Should the opportunity be available, you should absolutely visit RCR if you have the chance (if you're into that sort of thing) :D

Thanks again!

Steve
