2004 #24 Jeff Gordon DuPont Chevrolet Darlington Wreck

COMPLETE!!
This is going to be something like I've never done before...

In the spring 2004 Darlington race, Jeff Gordon t-boned the #80 car. I had a chassis that I was building as a wreck with no basic purpose other then to be a wreck.
Then I got the inspiration.
I realized I was using a Jeff Gordon kit's chassis, and the decals are so horrible the car couldn't be built normal with them, so why not?
I am using some creative license, and building the car as it is after it was taken back to the garage and the crew started tearing it down (and apart!) to put it onto the trailer to bring it home.
I am debating making a base and including the back of the rig. (I have now decided against that)
I should let it be known that I am a Jeff Gordon fan, and did not build this out of spite or hatred of the driver. Hatred for the kit decals yes, driver no.
