So after watching Days of Thunder for roughly the millionth time, I decided to play around with a pic of John C. Reilly in FaceApp to get an idea of what Buddy may have looked like shortly before he died.



Thinking very seriously about doing a car for this. Based on a screenshot from outside of Harry's barn where a 1986-1987 Pontiac 2+2, I'm thinking that Buddy's Daytona car would also be a Pontiac. My headcanon is that the bulk of the movie takes place in 1990 which means that Buddy would have died in '89. Gonna be pouring some research into this one to see what sponsors and numbers would have been available and going from there. Who knows, might even pen a little fanfic about it too.

Did some research and found out via one of Ernie Irvan's cars that Alltel was around in '89 (didn't know that previously). I knew I had some decals from an old Ryan Newman sheet so I thought that would be a good basis for sponsorship. That paired with the fact that the Pontiac 2+2 on Harry's farm was a navy blue.
