That, my friends, is Richard Petty's 1972 Dodge Charger. It also is the first Petty car that had the most recognizable race car paint scheme in the entire world and was the start of STP Sponsorship for Petty Racing.

LOOKING GOOD Marcelo!

Does that site sell the bodies?

I didn't see any sales info there.

Or do you have to get them from another place?

Hi everyone.

Let me organize here to answer all the doubts:

1 - Unfortunately that site of BOLHAPOINT don't sell the body. The owner call Fred. He is a good friend and allways answer doubts etc...I buy my shells in my local hobbyshop like Competition Hobby (www.competitionhobby.com.br), i don't know if they ship out of country!

2 - That yellow car beside my gold Charger is a brazilian Chevrolet called OPALA. It is derived from Opel Komodore, see more pics here:





I'm building other Opala but this one is a sedan:


3 - So, i will do the charger with Richard Petty color scheme: PS3 / PS7





That's it my friend. I'll do a new topic to show the building of this Charger.

Thanks

Marcelo

I just think they should be realistic. Oh, Snoop, I've probably put on more races in my life time than most including- state-regionals and nationals. So I'm now on the look out for a bobble head of Goofy.Dollar store here I come.I also like the paint job on the Camaro, it does need some Gator Blue however.

I was thinking that when I typed my last post in here. I probably wasn't talking to some kid who just got his first Sprint 2 sport RTR from HobbyTown. I certainly do not mean to bash or devalue your opinion. I just have come to the point that I am really happy with VTA as it stands and operates, and has become so widely popular. I have become one of those guys that is so resistant to any suggestion whatsoever regarding the class. I just like it like it is.

I hope you still like racing after all you have come through. I know plenty of guys that get to a point that they just wont pick up a radio any more.

If you do find a bobble head of Goofy, take precautions to secure it. Heads look kind of creepy rolling around on the track.

I like that sedan Opala. It looks like a mix of Chevelle and Nova. I dont know it looks new and familiar at the same time.

Snoopyrc- I've been doing this to long and have no desire to quit.I'm just one of these guys that when they say drivers figuire it looks like a real drivers figuire. If rcpaintingpete does not mind, that's fine with me- he introduced the class to our series.So I'm still going to look for a bobble head and it will be securely mounted. I'll look for my teammate also.
If you at the birds this year look me up I'll be easy to find.
