Jimmy Spencer 1998 Daytona 500 Thunderbird
« on: 09/01/17, 04:37 PM »
Been a long while since I requested a car, but the quality here always speaks for itself and I'm hoping someone can oblige me. I've been searching for this car for a good while and haven't been able to find it anywhere.

I'm after Jimmy's #23 Winston machine as raced in the 1998 Daytona 500, Jimmy was one of 3 drivers in that year's race to enter a Thunderbird instead of the all-new Ford Taurus. I have virtually every car from 1998 in my Cup90 mod, but I still lack those rare 3 98 Thunderbirds. I'd love to see someone attempt it for. My guess is it would be easiest to start with the 98 Taurus, then just transpose every logo etc to the Thunderbird template, but I'll leave it up to the painter who takes the challenge to decide how to do it.

NR2003 Mod: Cup90
Physics: CTS
Hi-Res 2048 or Lo-Res 1024: Hi-Res
Make & Model: Ford Thunderbird
Car Number: 23
Primary Color: Red
Second Color: White
Third Color: Black
Fourth Color: Gold
Name for Door: Jimmy Spencer
Hood Sponsor: Winston
Rear Quarter Sponsor:
Deck Lid/Truck Bed Sponsor:
TV Panel (rear) Sponsor:
Associate Sponsors:
Special Requests/Instructions: Limited source material for this one, but links for every image I could find below of the Taurus version, watched the 98 race again recently and the scheme was unchanged when they flipped back to the Thunderbird.
