The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-Bill Elliott-1991

By David G. Firestone

Bill Elliott drives his pre-Silver Bullet Coors Light Ford Thunderbird in 1991.

Bill’s Coors Ford was an iconic scheme, and the blue version looks pretty good too. The shade of blue looks good, and does the shade of red. The diagonal stripe on the rear looks good, and the Coors Light logo isn’t cut off by the wheel well. I think that the door number should be bigger, though it does look really good. I do like the fact that advertisers, at that time, didn’t really know what to do with the B-posts, and so it’s almost always the team name and/or car manufacturer.
