Cool!  Just bought one.  I like the fact that, "these posters came out of an old Sunoco Gas Station in Ceredo Kenova, W.V."  Thanks for the heads up.

Sorry to inform you that it is actually Sunoco Blue.   Smiley

However, the orange and black versions were used to transport seniors to the race!   Grin

You apparently have never had opportunity to view the '72 B' on the PNT line on the original car's trim plate??   Smiley

It was as if in a dream, I asked Mark.. 'Why did you change the color from the beautiful powerful orange and black to the blue / yellow color?"
he answered "Well, it's like this.  I loved the orange/black, even drove that color Z28 on the street myself, but Roger believed if we left it orange and black, we'd win all the races by such a large margin, the interest in the series would decrease, along with the purses and sponsorships, so he wanted a slower color"; personally, I hated it .. I wanted to win them all!"

Roger was right, Mark would win every race if they left the car orange.  The others drivers would see it, assume it was an emergency vehicle, pull over and stop!  No challenge in that.

LOL!   Grin
