2003 #8 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Budweiser Monte Carlo-Cassie's gift.

The Just Racin' Message board has an annual Christmas Exchange, and for my first year of participation I received Cassie's name. Being that we are both Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans, I thought the best gift I could come up with would be something I built. I've never built a model for anyone else, and this will be the first model I've built that's NOT in my collection. It's using the chassis from a 2003 Jimmie Johnson kit, whose body became Martin Truex Jr.'s Bass Pro Shops/ Tracker Busch Champ Chevy. I went out and bought a 2003 Dale Jr. kit for the body (and decals) and painted that with Tamiya Italian Red. I started work on 11/24/04, worked then and Thanksgiving, purchased the Jr. kit on 11/26/04, painted it on 11/27/04 and decaled in December. I have 30-40 more pictures to put up, but I'm on dialup. They will be put up soon, though.
