1963 #3 Junior Johnson Holly Farms Chevrolet Impala

This is a model I've wanted to do for a long time.

I decided to repurpose a model I had started years ago, but came out with a bad paint job. I expected it to be red, it came out pink. Also got a few runs in it. Now, that nasty thing that has been sitting in my basement for more than half a decade will be reborn as something far, far cooler.

Junior drove this car in 1963, making it the 5th car from the 1963 season I've started, three finished so far.

This car was the car that Richard Childress idolized, and why he chose #3 when it became available (He had been running 96 and 98 previously), so it's this car that is the reason Dale Earnhardt and the 3 became so famous togther.
