Don Carlton from Royal Oak, Michigan raced a series of Motown Missiles. This 1972 Barracuda example proves why black and gold is always a great color scheme. The gold stripes work very well, and the gold front wheels are amazing. I hope someone does a throwback scheme of this Motown Missile. A
Grumpy’s Toy IX was owned and driven by Malvern, Pennsylvania’s own Bill Jenkins This is one of a long line of Grumpy’s Toy cars. This Vega Pro Stock uses white with red accents. It’s a nice look. Red and white is a great color scheme, and it works very well with the design scheme. I’m going to give this the A it deserves.
The Sauber SHS C6 has a decent look, the driver compartment is a bit high, but because of the dimensions, it’s not a bad looking car. This red sonic circle design is horrid! Who thought this was a good idea? If you had the circle on the top of the car and went from there, it could work, but the circle on the sides is awful. There is no way I can give this car anything more than an F.
The Rondeau M382 is an upgrade from the M379. The driver compartment is much better in size than the M379. The paint scheme is a good one, which works well with the car. The red, white, and blue work well, and the car as a whole. It’s an A look for sure.
The Porsche 936C is a nice looking car, with a really smooth look, and good dimensions/ The paint scheme is kind of odd. The red is a really good shade of red. The white could be brighter. The design is a bit over done, the thin red stripes are visually distracting, and serve no purpose, other than looking odd. It’s a look that’s worth a B-.
I’ve the discuss Rondeau M379 before, and I think it looks like a car a child would draw with crayons. The color scheme of this particular M379 is decent, but the design scheme is so over done it’s awful. There are random patches of yellow placed all over the car. The red stripes do work though. All things considered, it’s worth a C+
Ironically, the Dome Zero RL81 is a very boxy car. It does have a great look though, with a sloped design. I also like the way the roof design works well. The deep blue color works very well. The yellow stripes look good. The shade of yellow works well with the shade of blue. It’s a great look that earns an A.
The Ardex S80 looks like a land-based rocket ship. It’s boxy and aerodynamic, with a very sloped nose and windshield. The plain white with green accents look fits the car very well. The shade of green and the shade of white work well, and the whole car is worth an A.
The Toj SM01 is a rounded, streamlined car, but it has a great look. This paint scheme however is a total disaster. The paint scheme can best be described as looking like it’s sewn together, with green, red, and yellow patches all over the car. It’s an over designed mess of a paint scheme. It takes a decent car down to a D- grade.
The Rondeau M379 is another instance of a car with too tall of a driver compartment, and as a result, it looks cartoonish. The paint scheme is kind of odd. The red is a really good shade of red. The white could be brighter. The design is a bit over done, the thin red stripes are visually distracting, and serve no purpose, other than looking odd. It’s a look that’s worth a C.
