This is a build I did of Richard Petty's famous crash from the 1988 Daytona 500. The first picture is the reference shot I used.. And yes, It was fun as anything to build this one! I get more comments and questions about this build than most of my others...go figure.... :D

I have this one, along with the Allison Buick in a display because they're both from the 1988 Daytona 500. Great race....

That looks awesome, and to think Richard walked away with a injured ankle.

Great build, would love to see this in person one day to check out the details. I'm sure even the poop stains on the seat are there. :D

Thanks for the compliments guys! I appreciate them! Yes, this puppy barrel-rolled many times against the fence, then got clobbered by (i think) Buddy Baker when it came to a complete stop. Crazy.....
