The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-Davey Allison-1991

By David G. Firestone

Davey Allison’s Texaco Havoline Ford Thunderbird speeds down the track in 1991.

The white-outlined gold numbers are gone, as is the metallic gold stripe. They have been replaced with a new design red number, and yellow letters, respectively. I like the new rounder numbers, and the shade of red works well on the black background. The Havoline logo looks so much better in yellow than in metallic gold. The car has a very smooth look, and it looks really good. This is the scheme that Texaco would use for the rest of their time in NASCAR.
