Can some one tell me the difference between the 89/87 Oldsmobile and the 88/92 Oldsmobile? The only thing I can see is the body style, is there more?
I want to build the #94 Sunco gas car, but I think I used the wrong year of car, I think I used the 86/87 body style.



Thanks

The 1987 kit is on the old style chassis while the 88-92 kit is on the updated chassis. The Sunoco car never ran on the older body.

There used to be a hardback book/magazine that would come out at the end of the year recapping the seasons action. If you can find one for that year it would be helpful.
A few of that body style that comes to mind are:
Terry Labonte 44 Piedmont Airlines
Cale Yarborough Hardee's #29
Lake Speed's Wynns/K-Mart car
The Kodak car 4, might have been Rick Wilson
I think Buddy Baker in the Crisco used that body
There were some BGN cars, but they had V-6 engines at that time

Dale Jarrett ran the 1988 Hardee's scheme on an 87 Delta at the first Richmond race of 88. I know decals are made but I cannot remember who made them....maybe MPR
