1991 #72 Tracy Leslie Detroit Gasket Oldsmobile Cutlass
COMPLETE!! This is the first time I've ever attempted to document one of my build-ups. The decals were made by Blue Ridge and the car started out as the Dinner Bell Olds. Was painted with Tamiya Italian Red right over the yellow plastic. It was started on 9/1/04 and finished on 9/12/04, save the right rear window and sponsor decal, as I am missing the window and the decal goes over it! Thanks to Mark Jeffries, the window is now in place and the car is truly finished! It has been since last year,(04) but I never updated the briefing! This is another car that comes directly from 1:64 scale memories. When I was little, about 9, when I first got the car I thought the driver's name was Tracy Lacy, and for the longest time I called him that. No longer, but the memory of that is the main reason I built this car as soon as I could. I should note that the chassis is totally wrong for the car. It was red in 1:1, but since I had no reference material whatso ever, I automatically assumed it was gray. I have been debating building a red chassis, and giving this one to my Jeff Burton TIC Financial build, but I cannot commit to that at this time.
