1983 Pontiac grandprixs

#7 is driven by Kyle and the #43 is Richard's. Both of these kits ar built from the crude AMT 1/25 scale snap/ glue together kits produced in the 1980s. These kits are rare.

This 1984 Pontiac GrandPrix is very crude compared to my other builds. This has happened for a good reason. This kit is an original issue of the Monogram 200 win car. This was the first Petty car I ever built. It was built straight from the box in the molded colors. This kit was built before I was painting them. I built this car in 1986 when I was 15 years old. Compair this to the car built below.

This car was loaned to Richard by D.K. Ulrich, after he failed to make the field in the coke 600 in Charlotte. The kit was orignially a Dale Earnhardt car that was accidently dropped and shattered into many pieces. I decided to rebuild the car as a Petty ride. Goodwrench was left on the dash as a reminder of the car's past

This kit took less than 4 hours to build.
