    Those Bill and Darrel cars are freaking flawless dude!

    Good call. This will definitely be an awesome addition to the existing '97 set.

    If you're not already using Racing reference then I highly suggest that you do. Very helpful for stuff like this.

    Well, you can set those hopes to simmer for a liiiiiiiiitle while. This is going to take a hot minute, lol. I'm aiming for 2 schemes per car#: a regular season and a special edition (IF there was one). And @crazyboy335 is being amazingly gracious in lending a hand in this endeavor - so a HUGE bit of recognition and thanks to him. We are just kind of earmarking different cars/ teams we each want to tackle at this point and I have pretty much an entire contingency decal set compiled that we are collectively working from.

    So - just keep your peepers peeled!

    Wow, your work just made me realized how beautiful those late 90s car models look. Can't wait to see what else you have in store!

    Regardless of how simple they are - this dual-color stripe ending in a chevron fade-out is STILL one of my favorite designs to come out of this time period.

    Also - my first Pontiac on the Win98 mod!

    Abuchl kept the site running for years. He was the only one posting stuff for the longest time, until he finally stopped as well. Haven't heard a word from him since.

    Yeah, makes me a little sad - I had to step away from the group when my wife and I first started bouncing around the Mid Atlantic for her job. But Andrew, Mudd, Rich, myself and the rest of the crew were super tight back back in the day. I'm 90% certain I located Abuchl on Facebook (he's a practicing physician) but never heard anything back from the messages I've sent.

    Ya know - I find I actually really enjoy creating vectors of old (defunct company) logos from scratch!

    That Serpentine font got used everywhere it seemed.

    Good luck with the 97 project, I did something very similar for 1998 doing all the one off skins apart from 1 or 2 cars. I wanted to do Waltrips World Games car from 98 but I couldn’t find enough material to do it.

    @ArchBanana inspired me - did a little doodle this afternoon. Colin McRae tribute (1999 Ford Focus WRC). Used the 2003 Ford Taurus as a base as it has the most 'Focus-like' headlights. :)

    This next car I'm working on TECHNICALLY never ran.... it was a DNQ from 1997..... But I literally could not pass it up.
    100% ridiculous. 1,000,000% love it. A pure product of the 90s right here.
    PREPARE THY RETINAS!!!!!!!

    What can I say? I'm a glutton for punishment, lol.

    And thanks - in spite of the tedious work on that splatter this is one of the most enjoyable cars I've done in a while.
