#playart#3#viceroy#shadow#dn3 : While I’ve shared a number of Playart’s #f1themed diecast in the past year, I’ve acquired enough livery variations this past week alone to take me through the remainder of the year! This week we’ll highlight some of my favorites, starting with the popular Shadow that scored eight points and one podium in the 1974 season with #jeanpierrejarierbehind the wheel. If you’ve ever wondered just how much times have changed in the past half century, note that the sponsor on this car, ostensibly sold to children, is a British cigarette company (imagine that in 2017!). I’ve only been able to find three variations of this car so far, but the other two include yellow, so I’ve picked the turquoise-numbered car to share.

#funstuf#poleposition#75#butchmiller#foodcountryusa#chevrolet#lumina : Two things really stand out to me here. The first is the Hoosier tires—remember those? The second: the Pole Position Lumina, unlike the #pitrowversion, isn’t a facsimile of the #matchboxcasting—and in response, it’s a lot closer to real life. #hendersonmotorsports , the team that ran this car in the 1992 #buschseriesseason, currently runs a Truck Series team—which #parkerkligermanled to victory in #talladegaearlier this year.

#funstuf#trackside#83#lakespeed#purex#ford#thunderbird : From 1987 to 1993, Speed took on the #winstoncupcircuit on his own, taking a win in #darlingtonin 1988. Speed’s limited-schedule entries actually did a solid job of attracting big-name sponsors, from #prestoneto #wynnsto this Purex entry that he ran before shutting down when #robertyatesand, later, #budmoorecame calling. After an impressive 11th place finish in points for Moore in 1994, Speed moved to #mellingracingthe next year, where he would eventually wind down his career.

#funstuf#trackside#27#hutstricklin#mcdonalds#ford#thunderbird : When #juniorjohnsonlanded the McDonald’s sponsorship for 1993, he also lured Stricklin over after his departure from #bobbyallison ’s team. The partnership started off with a fourth place finish in the #daytona500 , but quickly faded, leading to Stricklin’s departure and #jimmyspencer ’s arrival. Interestingly enough, while Funstuf stopped producing cars before the 1993 season, this car was made in 1992 off of the announcement.

#funstuf#pitrow#18#dalejarrett#interstatebatteries#chevrolet#lumina : In 1992, Super Bowl-winning Washington Redskins coach #joegibbsdecided to try his hand at stock car racing by operating a #winstoncupteam. 25 years later, the fruits of his labors have paid off time and again with multiple race wins, championships, and legendary drivers in his employ. This was the car that started it all, under inauspicious circumstances: Jarrett wrecked it in its first #daytona500 . The next year, however, he held off #daleearnhardtto win it. Interstate Batteries remains a part of the team to this day.

#funstuf#poleposition#68#bobbyhamilton#countrytime#oldsmobile#cutlass : Back to stock cars this week as we look at some of Funstuf’s various releases. I think their Oldsmobile tooling in the Pole Position releases, complete with the accurate rear window and windshield. This car raced in 1992, Funstuf’s last year producing #nascardiecast. In a year where his #tristarmotorsportsteam competed for three different manufacturers, Hamilton placed 25th in points with two top-10s.

#trackstars#90#castrol#opel#calibra#v64X4: Like #prestoneyesterday, the Castrol brand was a mainstay of Track Stars’ various diecast offerings. While this isn’t the scheme that made it to the brand’s #supergtand #wrcefforts with #toyota , or even its #lemansprototypes with #jaguar , it does have a real life history: #larryperkinswon the #bathurst1000in 1993, 1995, and 1997 carrying the livery on a #holden#commodore(and remember, Holden and Opel shared platforms while both were owned by #generalmotors ). The addition of black as a main color in the scheme really makes this pop.

#trackstars#16#prestone#alfaromeo#155#v6TI: I posted the open-wheel companion to this car a long time ago, but this is Track Stars’ touring car equivalent on the #realtoyAlfa Romeo body. While we’re used to seeing the Prestone logo in black over here in the States, red and blue are the predominant text colors on this car. It’s just one of many examples in this series that showcases how differently companies represent themselves in different countries. In fact, you should see the NASCAR-style stock car the brand made it onto… but more on that in the article this weekend!

#trackstars#7#polyglaze#mercedes#cclass : One of the most interesting facets of the Track Stars #v8supercarsapproximations is the mix of German vehicles with Australian sponsors. Polyglaze makes detailing products for the Australian market, and would have never made it to a car like this in real life—while Supercars began to welcome manufacturers beyond simply #holdenand #fordin recent years, those two made up the bulk of its early existence.

#trackstars#28#armorall#opel#calibra#v64X4: If this Track Stars issue looks uniquely like it could’ve been a real #v8supercarsentry out of this week’s cars, it’s because Opel and #holdenwere both part of #generalmotorsat the time and shared a number of platforms. While the Calibra won the driver’s and manufacturer’s titles in the final year of the #itccin 1996, Opel used the #astrawhen the series returned as #dtmin the new millennium, with a focus on exclusively German events as opposed to its worldwide evolution in the mid-1990s.
