The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-Lake Speed-1998

By David G. Firestone

Lake Speed and Melling Racing, both in the Twilight of their careers, came together to field this 1998 Cartoon Network Ford Taurus.

The red background works well, and the number looks decent. That’s really the only good thing I can say about the car. The cartoon designs all around the car are so over done, and the car as a whole looks awful. I love how they use the Wacky Racing theme for their first race car design. It was just a poorly thought out idea that didn’t work. Leave it to Ted Turner to keep a bad idea going for as long as possible, as this sponsorship stayed for a few seasons. It’s just not good.
