Throwback Thursday-Buddy Baker 1987

By David G. Firestone

Buddy Baker in his 1987 Crisco Oldsmobile…

Two shades of blue, one light, one dark run across the bottom of the car, and curve as it reaches the back. White on top, with chrome decals on the door numbers. This all works very well. The diagonal hood logo looks really good too. It’s a great scheme all around

Whoever did the contingency decals messed up the Ingersol-Rand decal, to the point that it wraps inside the wheel well. I also miss the series decal being simply a rectangular decal, with just the sponsor name on it. No fancy logo, no off-center oval, no fancy colors, just simple and attractive. I also love the fact that Dale Jr. used the number design Baker used on his car.
