1983 #3 Ricky Rudd Piedmont Airlines Chevrolet Monte Carlo
COMPLETE!! A #3 owned by Richard Childress and not driven by himself or Dale Earnhardt. Not an easy thing to find. But it happened, in 1982 and 1983, and this car represents Ricky Rudd's Piedmont Airlines Chevrolet. I liked this scheme alot the first time I saw it, and when I found the decals in Toledo I knew what the other half of the first (and at the time only) DW Combo kit. After that it was just basically box stock. My reference hoed some different decal locations then the Slixx reference sheet, and I went with the reference. Unfortunately only one of the Piedmont logos for the wheels worked. I believe this car holds some history, too. Besides being likely the last #3 car not driven by Dale Earnhardt, it "won"* the pole for IIRC the first three races of the 1983 season.
*At the Daytona 500, Cale Yarbrorough put up a record speed, but flipped his car on the second qualifying lap, and at the time the car got the record, and when it was wrecked, Rudd, who qualified second, became the pole sitter.
Built from the other half of the first Darrell Waltrip combo (of which I have 4) and Slixx decals.
