Restoration of a Racing champions Pontiac


Recommended Posts

Always looking something to do. In my quest to represent every year of the petty car I took on a project to create the 1992 fan appeciation tour car that actualy looks like a fan appreciation tour car. Racing champions issued a 1992 paint schemed pontiac but it was so wrong. I found an old one that had been repainted and was looking very ugly so i decided a resto was nesseary.The pix below show the work

i will have a poll for this topic. hope you enjoy
