The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-Kyle Petty-1987

By David G. Firestone

3rd Generation driver Kyle Petty takes his 1987 Ford Thunderbird out for a Sunday Drive.

Red, white, and blue is a good color scheme, but the design scheme leaves a lot to be desired. They tried to do too much. The red front might work if the whole car is red, but this just doesn’t. The interrupted stripe design on the side, where the door number interrupts the racing stripe looks like a cop out. The diagonal stripe and logo would work, if the designer was commuted to the racing stripe. The blue hood with a logo works, but the non-commitment to the blue just looks awkward. Citgo should be embarrassed, and they are a sponsor who has had a lot of bad schemes over the years.
