This. That sort of damage seems like you could easily mend it with little to no money(remember the Baseball bat?).

Not sure if anyone noticed, but if you look closely you can see the number that was on this car before the 10. Looks like a 21.

Brent Brevak has a Dodge that used the same paint job as it was when it was being run by Doug Stringer

Spoiler:
Doug Stringer never ran Dodges

The Bashams aren't that bad. Yeah, they have a low-budget, but they used to run 2 cars and they rarely did a start-and-park effort. Hillenburg has had a little bit of fail, but his effort has gotten better. Hylton, even though he's like 123 years-old, has some decent looking cars who don't really start-and-park.

I have found the Jayski of ARCA fail.

Common theme with all Peterson/Smith cars: crinkled sheet metal and nose way up in the air. I guess they run Silly Putty for the front suspension.

So after doing intense research, this is what I found. Some of them are from the old EFR forums. Let me show you the evolution of ARCA cars Laughing :









(Yes. A freaking Mercedes logo).












(Seems legit).




(Yes, this is Bobby Gerhart's car, which honestly surprises me).





(Honestly the most retarded front bumper I've seen on any car).






Just going through these pics, I honestly think the ARCA should be renamed "The Ghetto Car Series."

Some aren't bad, but when I saw that #70 and the Butch Jarvis' cars, I have lost all faith in mankind. They actually did a pretty good job with turning that old Jeff Burton Citgo car to the #21.

The 0 car at the top is the oldest Peterson car I think I've ever seen. You can tell it's his cause that's the font he used to use.

That's Scott Stovall's car. The guy actually won the 1982 ARCA Championship at age 21!

Yeah. Some of the cars I put up aren't that bad. I put them up anyways because I personally thought it looked interesting, like the Chrysler cars that were used and ARCA and some of the used Cup cars seen in those pictures. There were other pics I saw that would be considered shame-material, but I let it slip by me.

I think that the car inside had absolutely no chance of winning this race, but it's worse if you look closer at the inside of that car...

I remember that race. IIRC BP pointed out that the pace car was showing less damage than the race car and said something like "That makes you proud to own a Pontiac"

Being that the ARCA race at Daytona is a day away, I'd like to take the time to honor the drivers who ARCA-brake while avoiding the big ones from the past several years or so.










(This is probably the biggest ARCA-brake fail out of all of the videos here). Laughing

A couple things with that picture. First, the guy standing next the shirtless guy, based off the expression on his face has got be thinking, "Man, why did i come with this guy?" Second, why are those names on the left side of the car there? It looks like they say, in order from the top, somebody's signature taht I can't read, Grandpa, Pat O'Malley, and Jimmy Means.

Reversed the front bumper stickers so that the one on the top should be on the bottom, and vice versa.
