    why not Intimidator? Earnhardt deserves a nod.

    A race car based Prime? THE TRAVESTY! Wait...

    Rodimus Prime. Dangit.

    As for Intimidator, the right number would be 3. That was Earnhardt's number. But, the name would work for the custom figure.

    yeah, its a TF, accuracy isn't a strong point, so I didnt even think for a second about it having a wrong number. its a race car, so it fits :p

    I wanted to do a Richard Petty one first to see how it will looked as for an intimidator one it'll have to wait untill my airwolf project is done it will be my first reshell attempt

    Richard Petty is the king of nascar with 200 wins and 7 winston cup championships so thats also why i done him first

    Yes, but they raced in different eras. When petty won 200 races, they were running like 50 races per year as opposed to 30 like in Earnhardt's day. Plus the competition was alot tighter in later years. Shortly after Earnhardt's death, Petty touched on the subject and said that if Earnhardt had raced in his ( Petty's ) day, he'd have probably won 300 races and 10 championships. Petty may be the king, but knew who 'the man' was.

    they started the offical series in 1959 it was limited to 36 races a season that is when his win record count starts not before as for earnhart he started in 1979 in his first season he had a wreck and took out petty with him true most everyone thinks of his career in the 90's but it all started in the seveties and nascar really didn't take of till then either
    that all started due to the televised daytona 500 also in 1979 where on the last lap Donnie Allison and Cale Yarbough got into a wreck on the back strech taking them out of 1st and 2nd leaving Petty in3rd to take the win after which Allison and Yarbough got into a fight while still on the back strech this was also Petty's 200th and final win
