1957 Ford Fairlane 500.......the car I was looking at when i first found out about nascar.


Stock Car Racing History

Amt kit. 105 hours to complete. This car represents my introduction to Nascar. One Saturday morning when I was 6 years old, I looked out the front window of my parents house, in Hampton Virginia, and saw a beautiful red and black car that I had never seen before. It was parked in front of my friend , Rusty McCaddens house. After my mom forced me to eat my breakfast, I ran down to see what was going on. Some of my other friends had already gathered to see this beautiful car. Turned out it was Rusty's older brother's 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 with continental kit and fender skirts. He had stopped by to show the car to his parents and Rusty. Rusty informed me that he was on his way to the Southern 500 in South Carolina. I said , whats that? I had never heard of it before. He informed me that it was a stock car race run at Darlington South Carolina, that was raced on an asphalt track for 500 miles on Labor Day. I asked him if he was going to race this car. He laughed and said no they were special cars with numbers painted on them that race drivers like Lee and Richard Petty drove. I had no idea who they were. I never got to see his brother but when I went home I asked my dad if he knew about the race and he said he did but he didn't seem like he was that interested in it . But he told me more information about Nascar and said maybe some day we would go to a Nascar race. Needless to say my interest was peeked. I never forgot about this car and finally decided to build a model of it. Its a 62 year old memory so its only basically what the real car looked like. But I think its pretty close.

I tried to play with it with a paint program but im not very good at it. I doubt if anyone has ever made this decal. so if you can get it done it will be a one of a kind deal.

I think I found it. I'm pretty sure its Dupont Real Touch Elite laminate flooring. The Dupont logo is red and the lettering is white on the blue trunk.

It definitely looks like the word real to me. And the second word looks like it starts with a t and an o.

What ever it is . the diecast makers of this car got it wrong. Looks like maybe a dupont logo in red to the left top of trunk  and below it says Real something. can make out the something.. just too grainey.
