How did everybody choose the numbers they use for painting/racing?
28 is for my birthday.

I'm #13 in basically everything I do. It was my number in all the sports I played when I was younger and it's supposed to be the bad luck number so I've just stuck with it cause fuck it idk
I have a few. 3, 6, 31. 3 and 31 mostly come from my fandom of Austin Dillon, Ryan Newman, and RCR. My dad was also a Dale Sr fan which rubs off on me, but I'm sure I would've been a Sr fan as well, if I had been alive to watch him and comprehend it, since I was born not even 4 months before his death. They also just have an aesthetic that I like for some reason, especially in the RCR font.
For the teams owned by me in my canon, 8 is for a couple of cars Mr. The Rooster, AKA my all time favorite driver, had during his resurgence in the 2000's. I've said this in my showroom, but the 88 in my screen name isn't for Jarrett or Jr., it was because Rudd was driving the 88 Snickers car when I signed up on SRD.
I started with #13 since it's just a reverse of 31 with RCR, #51 was just a reverse of 15 for DEI, #52 for SHR just because it was a step up from 51, and finally #91 because it just felt right to me; an underutilized number with potential.
I chose 75 because I love the old Butch Mock Remington cars
I just like the idea of using a number that hasn't been "claimed," i.e. has no attachment to any driver or significant history built up with it already. The most well-known #68 car is probably the Country Time car that Bobby Hamilton drove for a couple years in the early '90s, and that car wasn't very good. All #68 cars pretty much suck and that number stuck out to me as a kid for some reason lol
Back when I joined the NR2003 community, I looked around BER for the coolest #37 I could find for my car (couldn't draw shit back then). Didn't find any cool-looking #37s but liked a Derrike Cope #73 I found. Since it was just the #37 inverted, I chose that and still use it to this day (albeit my own version). Plus, as a kid, I liked those digits.
Well, I guess I could expand on this a little. I'm not picky with numbers, in fact I've pretty much run every number at least once on NR2003 or on Roblox back in the old days. In the USORL alone I've run the 07, 2, 4, 7, 11, 17, 28, and 92 - and that's only over three years!I just pick what's pleasing to the eye. Any combination of 1, 4, or 7 does it for me 99% of the time.
I bet you can't guess what mine is. Lol. Most of my numbers are Petty related. I know, big surprise there, right? Lol. I currently run in 3 different online leagues and I use a different number in each league. When I first got serious with the online racing I started running the #45 for Adam and still run it today. I also run the #43 for the King. I mean, how can you not when you are a Petty fan? I also run the #44, partly for Petty and partly because I like how the double number looks.How did everybody choose the numbers they use for painting/racing?
I think I've seen one or two renders around this year. @Carbine M1A1 or @garrett1127 would probably be the only ones that could help you out though. Also, it would probably help to know which mod, as there were like 3 floating around when COT came out. I think SS.net was the original (or was it SimModified?), but there was also a DMR version right around the same time.Oh, stupid question: Does anyone still render the original COT mod?
