The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-Ken Schrader-1985

By David G. Firestone

Our classic scheme for the week is this Kenny Schrader scheme from 1985

This is a really good shade of blue. The white lettering looks good on the sides. The Ultra Seal logo is placed quite well, with none of the logo lost to the curves of the car. The front has an interesting red and white design, over the Ford Thunderbird grille and headlights. It looks like it would extend to the back of the car, but it doesn’t. It’s an odd quirk, but it doesn’t look bad at all.

The diagonal logo on the hood is a tad hard to make out, but it is a unique look that isn’t used anymore. The window net also looks so flimsy compared to modern window nest. I’m also wondering how much extra weight the grille and headlights add to the overall weight of the car. The large door numbers look good, much better than the smaller ones used today.
