That car was beast mode at Ho-B-Max.

Absolutely hauled butt and looked like it turned and handled great.

Hi Ed;

It's nice to know theres someone out there that can relate to the Interscope name. We're probably letting others know the age bracket we're in - lol.

I was a huge fan of Danny Ongais and Interscope Racing back in the late 70's and early 80's. (not to mention billionaire team owner Ted Field) They brought a level of class and professionalism to road racing and Indy car racing that was way ahead of the rest. (other than maybe Penske)

Danny could wheel anything with wheels and mega-horsepower. He was fearless and fast in everything from Top Fuel dragsters, nitro funny cars, road race Porsches and of coarse Indy cars.

I've been wanting to use this throw-back paint scheme for a very long time. I waited till I had a body design that was extreme enough to look like it could have theoretically been a part of the Interscope Racing stable....back in their hey day.
