Throwback Thursday-Darrell Gwynn-1987

Darrell Gwynn’s 1987 disasterous attempt to recreate Swamp Rat 30

The Budweiser red looks good, I’m not a huge fan of the white front design they used here, but they fixed in by 1992. The old QUAKER STATE logo looks decent, but I hate the shade of green they used. It almost looks like the current shade of green, if it had faded in the sun. It’s really bland. I’ll give the paint scheme a B- The car design looks OK, but the covered wheels don’t look good, and the lack of mud flaps doesn’t help the streamlined look. It’s good the streamline concept died shortly thereafter.
