Throwback Thursday-Robert Pressley-1998

By David G. Firestone

Robert Pressley is back with his 1997 Jasper Engines Ford Thunderbird.

This requires a bit of an explanation. When the Taurus was introduced in 1998 to replace the Thunderbird, NASCAR gave Ford teams the option of running the Thunderbird for some of 1998. As Jasper Motorsports was a low rent, self-sponsored team, they chose to run the Thunderbird. That said, let’s discuss the scheme. This almost looks like a reverse Jeff Gordon scheme. The rainbow stripes look like a reverse of Jeff Gordon’s rainbow stripes. It’s not a bad look. The Jasper Engines logos are well placed on the car as well, and they look good. The scheme as a whole looks good.
