The Driver Suit Blog-Paint Scheme Grades-August 10, 2019

By David G. Firestone

Landon Cassill #00 Mane ‘n Tall Chevy Camaro-The only good thing I can say is that the color scheme isn’t awful. It’s not a great design scheme, and it’s very over designed. I’ll give this a D.

Landon Cassill #00 Whole Harvest Chevy Camaro-I don’t like wave designs, but this isn’t as bad as some, because the color scheme is great. This is actually a decent look, and earns a C.

Austin Dillon #3 Freightliner Chevy Camaro-Its a great color scheme, with a mediocre, over designed look. I’ll give this a C.

Chase Elliott #9 Hooters Spirits Chevy Camaro-A smooth look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Aric Almirola #10 Go Bowling Ford Mustang-Same scheme as last year, same A- grade.

Denny Hamlin #11 FedEx Cares Toyota Camry-Orange and blue isn’t a great color scheme, and this is a very over designed mess. It does use white as a base color, which is the only thing keeping this above an F. This scheme does get a D.

Paul Menard #21 Motorcraft Throwback Ford Mustang-Glen’s 1956 Ford Fairlane had a great look, and this faithful replica is a great look. This is an amazing look, and I can’t give this less than an A.

William Byron #24 City Chevrolet/Hendrick Autoguard Chevy CamaroCole’s City Chevrolet Lumina is my favorite car in Days Of Thunder. This is a great replica, and it looks really good. This is getting an A.

Reed Sorenson #27 Lehigh Valley Phantoms Chevy Camaro-Orange on black is a great look, and the design works well. This is a perfect example of less is much more. A

Corey LaJoie #32 Samaritan’s Feet Ford Mustang-A smooth, simple look, with a great color scheme will always earn an A.

Chris Buescher #37 Cottonelle Chevy Camaro-Same scheme as last year, same C- grade.

BJ McCleod #51 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-Color scheme is good, design scheme is not. I think this is over designed. It isn’t too over designed, but it is over designed. I’ll give it a C.

Cody Ware #51 Jacob Companies Chevy Camaro-This is an ugly, over designed mess with a bad use of color. This doesn’t work at all. This is just awful. F

Josh Bilicki #52 AQRE Chevy Camaro-Black is a great color for a car, and the building motif works very well here. This is a great look, and I give this an A.

Quin Houff #77 Rapid City Rush Chevy Camaro-The Rush motif works very well. The great color scheme works well, and the design is bold, but not over designed. I give this an A.

I'm just a normal guy who collects race-worn driver suits, helmets, sheet metal, and other race-worn items. I will use this blog to help collectors, and race fans alike understand the various aspects of driver suits and helmets, and commentate on paint schemes.
