    God, I love ALL of this work. I'm a sucker for all the little eccentricities that show up on actual race day cars from that time period (mis-matched fonts, hastily altered car numbers, decals that don't quite line up right with each other, etc.) and you have it all on these cars! And all those driver names - what a throwback to when I first started getting involved in racing.

    Absolutely stellar work - I look forward to more!

    That is a cool Idea. I never thought about putting them on the ford. Quick Question for you then.
    What would you think about putting the Lumina on the Ford body? It might be a closer style to the flatter front 93/94 Lumina noses??

    Your 27 came out way better than mine (I think the Daytona car was a different number number though). Did you redo the J Chisholm (sp?) logo? Looks very clean.

    Thanks, I don't even know where the J. Chisholm logo I have came from, but it was very low quality and I had to spend a bunch of time remaking it.

    Probably the same place I got mine- google. I cleaned it up a little bit but this version is definitely better. Good job!

    With these two cars now completed, there is at least one car and or scheme for every driver in the top 45 in points. That leaves just three drivers within the top 70 in points and then the rest after that are mostly drivers with 1 or 2 starts.
