Throwback Thursday-Darrell Waltrip-1989

By David G. Firestone

The Tide Ride makes its first appearance, this Chevy Monte Carlo driven by Darrell Waltrip.

Burnt orange looks really good, and the Tide motif on the rear looks really good. The Tide logo on the back is horrid. It should have been moved back, and that SuperFlo logo should have been moved down. The scheme works very well with the boxiness of the Monte Carlo. I’m also noticing that the name is much higher on the roof than most cars. It’s not a bad look.
