Mid-90’s NASCAR Show Cars

I was going through some old photographs this morning and came across some of some mid-90’s NASCAR show cars.  I thought fellow motor sports fans might be interested in them so I scanned some up:

Unlike now, special paint jobs weren’t frequently used in the mid 1990’s and were indeed special when they were rolled out.  Here are some Dale Earnhardt #3 Monte Carlos in some of the first special paint jobs:

Red, White, and Blue #3 Monte Carlo celebrating the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

The NASCAR truck series began in 1995.  Mike Skinner was the first series champion driving for Richard Childress.  Here’s one of the team’s show trucks:
