#12: Dale Earnhardt GM Goodwrench 3 Car

#12???? A bunch of no-good Ford lovers must have compiled this list.

With 7 points, the late Dale Earnhardt holds down the #12 spot on the HumpIdiot 500 countdown of the best old school NASCAR paint schemes.

Boss, "Classic scheme...Yankees like."

Captain, "Now I know what you're saying....what is cool about an all-black car with a white #3? My answer is...everything. Look, if you were ahead of him and looked back in the mirror and saw GM Goodwrench backwards you had two options: 1) race him and get put into the corner, or 2) move up and let him pass."

Not-so best of the rest:

13 tie: Terry Labonte and Davey Allison(6)

14 tie: Jimmy Spencer and Ricky Bobby (5)

15. Ernie Irvan (4)

16: Kyle Petty Mello Yello 42 Car (3)

17 tie: Terry Labone Piedmont Airlines 44 Car (2)

17 tie: Bobby Allison Gatorade 88 Car (2)

18 tie: Larry Lambert and Ward Burton (1)

Please tell me the Wrangler scheme is ahead of this Childress p.o.s.

I need to start reading blogs everyday and stop working. I can't believe I've missed this countdown.
