RE: Joey Test Cars
Unfortunately I don't have many test car photos other than what is posted in the photo gallery here. Sad

RE: Joey Test Cars
Testing sessions are rarely photographed and the only one that receives any press coverage of note via photographs is preseason at Daytona.

Here is my theory on collecting diecasts and creating customs...

I had a favorite driver who retired a few years ago after 32 seasons in NASCAR. That is A LOT of diecasts. I was able to create about seventy customs along the way through a ton of photographs. Here is the tough part. To this very day, I continue to find a new photo of an old car that has never been seen by these eyes. It's frustrating.

A couple of years ago, I gave up and this is after having more than 140 paint schemes on many diecasts in this collection. The pics kept on coming and at some juncture, it became all too obvious that I had no chance to make every single paint scheme, let alone any test cars. First, I threw in the towel on test cars altogether. After a while, I threw in the towel on getting every car made or bought.

My solution? I decided to have the main paint scheme for each season and a few extras that were special for one reason or another.

I can't tell you what to do. However, I can share my experience(s) with you and pass along the best of luck in your search. Smile

Jean is one smart fan. Smile

Ricky started to race in NASCAR at age 18. I cheered for him from his very first race (March 2, 1975) to the last (Homestead, 2007).

I figured it was time to start cheering for another 18 year old.

My cat (a Bengal cat) is named after Ricky. He has his own FB page and likes Joey too. Smile

And that concludes today's history and current events lessons. Big Grin
