Throwback Thursday-Terry Labonte-1997

By David G. Firestone

Upset 1996 Winston Cup Champion Terry Labonte returns in his 1997 Kellogg’s Chevy Monte Carlo.

I like the old school Kellogg’s scheme from the 1990’s. The Corn Flakes design was always a good look. The red back, with the slanted stripe to the white with green designs on the side. That unique door number, that fit perfectly into the design of the car is amazing. I didn’t notice until just now that the door number is slanted forward, and the roof number is slanted in reverse. It’s a good look, however, I think that the #5 should get a new door number, because it makes no sense that they are using a number design from a sponsor they no longer have.
