    I was looking for a Scott Riggs car to upload to the Countdown thread, and came across this car in Google Images.

    I thought it would be cool to start a thread, and see if there were other paint schemes that never hit the track that you guys can think of.

    This is one that I wish had raced.

    A couple others off the top of my head are some of the MWR NAPA schemes, and the original yellow and white Kevin Harvick Shell scheme.

    Im glad neither of these made it to the track, their actual schemes were much better.

    Here's a video that I found on YouTube:

    10 minutes of paint schemes that never made it to the race.

    Cool video, but I think you just ruined the purpose of this thread a little

    RuRa's thread was awesome, but sadly most of the pics are gone now. Hopefully we can dig them back up again

    The original Can-Am scheme. I like the one they actually ran better, but if they used this I would have been alright with it.

    Hate how everyone thinks this was for Jeff. This was a car in place for Ricky Rudd Buddy Baker.

    The Riggs picture I posted above had RuRa's website link next to it. My inspiration for this thread was the fact that most of the pictures were gone, as I observed while reading the thread. I thought it couldn't hurt to do exactly what you said and see if we could recover the pictures and put them here.

    Maybe the car in that photo, but Gordon was supposed to end up driving the #46 for Hendrick.

    Buddy Baker** :)

    Jimmie Johnson's planned 2001 car. He wound up running a scheme based on the Power of Pride.

    The rainbow 46 did attempt a race, with Buddy Baker as driver. Sadly was a DNQ

    Here's a good one. Jeff Purvis's 2001 Busch car. Porter Cable was trying focus their marketing somewhere so they pulled their sponsorship from the 4 car. The 4 became the 20. Purvis was moved to the 18 while Mike McLaughlin jumped onto the second Gibbs car numbered 20 then took over the 18 mid-season from Purvis.
