    Great car!! I think I would letter it with your own name and sponsor/dealership but use the same exact font that Ronnie and Buddy used. Make it so the words are not the same but it still looks the same if you know what I mean. Make people look twice to see if it was the same as original. I've been told the original car does exist. If it is ever restored it could cause some issues if your car is lettered as the original.

    I talked to Dean Sox last year. He said he was possibly going to make a pass or two in your car. Did that ever happen? Barry R. built you a nice motor!!

    That is a cool paint scheme. My dads old car ended up painted that way. The car got wrecked in the early 70s and alot of the parts ended up on the Cyclone I have now. I'm gonna paint my car like his car was originally.....a very lt blue with white and blue stripes on the roof.

    As far as lettering it, I say go for it but do it in a way that looks period....but not like a mimic of the Ronnie Sox car.

    Thanks Still working out the bugs in it.I really like your idea of having it look the same but different.I'm a huge fan And I love the color scheme.I wanted to do a tribute car but I didnt want to come off as trying to be ronnie sox.I was suppose to go to henderson and meet dean and diane but was unable to go.Work has been tough and had to cut back.I'm trying to get ready for next year. I really want to get out to York 30/beaver springs and run with you guys.
