Throwback Thursday-Michael Waltrip-1991

By David G. Firestone

Pennzoil returns, this time on Michael Waltrip’s 1991 Pontiac Grand Prix.

I’m weirdly particular about shades of yellow in NASCAR. I don’t get upity about any other color as much as I do about yellow. It’s a hard color to have as a base color, because if the shade is too bright, as visible as it is, it just doesn’t look good. That said, this particular shade is bright, but not too bright, and it’s unique. It looks really good. I like the red door numbers too. The logo getting cut off by the wheel well annoys me, not just this car, but race cars in general. It’s visually distracting, and doesn’t look good at all. This is a really good look, and a really good car.
