Pro: It's Gordon's car. Con: No miniature Gordon.
Good enough to become the wallpaper on my desktop. :)

Damn. It looks even better, on my desktop. :)
Been meaning to get me one of those die cast cars, someday.

1:24 Scale is the desired size for collectors of Nascar models. I have a small Nascar collection in 1:18; I don't think anyone even makes them anymore. If you want to collect sports cars, 1:18 scale is the way to go. Based on the response to this photograph, I'm thinking of featuring another one of my cars sometime soon.

It is a very good photo. I thought it was good in the smaller size, but it looks great on my desktop. You should do at least a couple more.
Just may look into those 1:18 cars. We've got a shop, down the road. All I ever do is look and pick up a T shirt or hat, once in awhile.
Now, that means the wife's unicorn collection, may need a new home. LOL

Oh man. Jeff Gordon was one of my favorite stock car drivers when I was a kid.

A very likeable guy, in my opinion. I never liked the fact he brought on so much resentment for his success when racing in the South. But then again, Californian's in general draw resentment outside of California for a variety of reasons.

He even won four NASCAR cup titles.

At first glance I thought this was a real car, I went straight to the text to see where you found this piece of history; that's when I realized it was a model... great shot :-)

So happy you were fooled for a second. I was trying to make this piece look real as possible.

The smoothest I could find to compliment the scale of the car.

I may not like western comics, but as a Jeff Gordon fan this was one of the best race car paint schemes Jeff had in the 90's.

Dupont was introducing their new "ChromaLusion" paint formula to the public with this scheme.
