First and foremost, the fact that the topic I am about to discuss is contains such a small list is simply AMAZING. The car painters, past and present, of the NR2003 community are pure miracle workers. I have thoroughly enjoyed the amazing work people have come up with.

That being said, my query starts with a small set simple facts;
-Every single Cup series season from 1976-2020 has a carset.
-Every CTS series season from 1995-2020 has a carset.
-Every BGN season from 1982-2020 has a carset.

...EXCEPT...

...1985, 1986, and 1989 for the BGN.

I have searched high and low for cars from these 3 BGN seasons, and cannot find them anywhere. The weebly site for NR2003 lists several mods and carsets for every single season except these 3 seasons for BGN (https://nr2k3.weebly.com/mods.html).

My first question is, does anyone know where carsets for these 3 BGN seasons might be found?

Second, if carsets for these three seasons simply don't exist, is anyone, or any group of painters, willing to close the loop and paint cars for these three missing seasons?

Think about it, getting cars for these 3 seasons would mean that painters have painted cars for every season of the top 3 series from 1976-2020. That is unreal! What does the community here think about this?

Oh wow! Thanks for the info! Looks like they did a great job on these! Let's hope someone can get around to 1985 and 1986 one day to wrap the whole thing up. Great find, buddy!
If you have pictures and the mod you’d like them on then I might be willing to LOOK at it and see if I’m interested. I’m working on missing 1996 truck schemes atm.

I would suggest checking out the LMS and BGN Series History 1978 - 2003 ONLY and NASCAR Busch Grand National Era Facebook groups for pictures. There may not be pictures of every car or even enough for 70 or 80 cars, but there should be enough pictures there to at least make a car set with all of the full timers along with a good portion of the part timers that ran more than 1 - 3 races. A lot of the schemes remained the same year after year, so a lot of them could be changed from the 1985 cars to 1986 cars quite simply.

Had an oversight here:

Apparently there also isn't a 1993 BGN set. Did the usual google search. Apparently one was being worked on a while back. Anyone know what happened to that project? Was a 1993 BGN set ever completed?

Maybe I'll do it eventually, but I never finished the 1989 bgn cars lol. I was thinking @jopajoe made the '93 set, but looking at RacinGrafx I must have been thinking of the '91 set he worked on.

At one point, I'd thought about adding 1985 to my list of projects, but when Ru-Ra's photo archive went, I lost a ton of sources for stuff. Factor in how burned out with everything I've been, and that sealed that.

Yeah the Rura archive has killed a lot of projects. It also doesn't help that the HSCR forum is pretty much dead and most of the images there are lost to time as well. I was in the process of trying to back up all of the 90's Cup schemes (with plans to save the Busch, ARCA and trucks too) from RURA when the hack happened.
