My vote is for #12. While the Jav is cool, I have seen WAY to many red/white/blue javelins that I am immune to their charms.

Maybe its the angle of the camera, but the wheels don't line up on the Jav.

I go for RED #97. I like the black hood and the "302 CU. IN." on the hood too!

Thanks for the votes guys!!!!!! This is the first time trying something like this, but I don't want to tie up this thread for a whole week voting, so the deadline will be Wednesday at Noon e.s.t.

Keep the votes coming and feel free to talk about other stuff too....

It is a very popular paint job replicating a very famous race car and driver. Probably one of the most recognized trans am cars of all time. Can't get tired of racing history I. miniature.

What is the theme of the concours? Best craftsmanship? Cleanest paint and installation? Historical accuracy? Popular vote on what looks good? Maybe I'm looking at this too hard for a rc concours event. My background is in plastic modeling and accuracy was a must in any judged event.

I guess each competition is based on some, or all of the above....For us, I like to get the average spectator (not associated with any racer) to judge based on whatever car they like best, for whatever reason....This helps get more people involved in our hobby by letting them be a part of our program....Plus, they usually don't know any of the competitors, so it's a little more fair....

I know what you mean....Since we cater to newer racers, there are always a few identical cars based on the color of the car on the box, and the decals inside....

I also wish that more newbies would try something original and different....

I am more a fan of period correct sponsors, not just copying old paint schemes.

A little research and you can find some very cool old/vintage advertising artwork for your own original VTA paint scheme.

Old beer logos, soda pop, cigarettes, [not currently politically correct] gas and oil companies are all great starting points for logos.

I was over in Phoenix (MESA) AZ this past weekend for their 22nd Annual Asphalt Challenge.

One of their Largest Classes is a "VINTAGE" class that follows most of the intent of the Original US VTA.

I believe they are not requiring Drivers (but many have them) and they run 21.5, and run OVAL.

One of the guys, Mike Jennings, worked with the SCCA Trans-Am Series in the 70's and LOVES being able to recreate these cars, and has a whole table full, along with a photo of the starting grid from one of the races he worked, I believe he said at Road Atlanta (or Road America I forget) in I believe 1970.

His Concourse entry WAS that starting line up (in picture below) + a couple other of the cars on hand, the Indy 500 Pace car lead the field all day, and the Rust Bucket was on a rotating display.
