A NASCAR Imperial? Get outta here! They ran Dodge Miradas in the early '80s too, didn't they?

Nowadays you don't see stuff like this. No surprise car designs, just the same few identical bodies with different grilles painted on.

#2, If you read in the link: When Buddy [Arrington] wasn't running the Imperial, he used this Mirada (he actually had 2 of them) on the short & medium tracks, etching up several top-10 wins from '81-'84.

(Buddy's Imperial: http://www.imperialclub.com/Yr/1981/Buddy/82imp67.jpg )

Amazingly enough, Buddy Arrington finished 7th in points for the 1982 Cup season, driving a combination of Miradas and Imperials. Buddy also ran Mopars until mid-'85... by then he had "converted" his Mirada to a Cordoba... Maurice Randall's cars were actually Buddy's old cars (This Imperials and one Mirada/Cordoba). After '85, they couldn't use the cars any more in NASCAR, as the body designs were more than 3 years old.

#6, Heh, I just found one of those today at a diecast shop... snapped it up. Neat little piece of obscure Nascar-related memorabelia...

Well, apparently this wasn't the ONLY "last" Mopar product to race in a Nascar Cup points race... the 1985 Delaware 500 in September was Maurice Randall's last race in his Imperial, but it was also Phil Good's last race in an Imperial also (ran the car as the #76). Maurice blew an engine on the first lap and finished dead last, and Phil finshed 18th, still running, 62 laps down.

#6, Me too. It's yellow with tan interior. That's why I posted #2....I had never seen a picture of one before, but I figured Hot Wheels wouldn't have bothered modeling a Dodge Mirada unless there really was a stock car version.
