Made a model of the billboard from Pole Position a long time ago. So I made a bunch of ads for it. The three at the bottom are less original edits, and were more than likely just adjusted to fit on the billboards.

First of all, those of you who know bluegrass music, consider this lineup of The Clinch Mountain Boys:

・Ralph Stanley (Banjo, Vocals)
・Roy Lee Centers (Guitar, Vocals)
・Keith Whitely (Guitar, Vocals)
・Ricky Skaggs (Mandolin, Vocals)
・Curly Ray Cline (Fiddle)
・Jack Cooke (Bass, Vocals)

Now, imagine that two out of the three who could be called internationally-famous are relegated to the back of the line. Yup, that’s what happens to Ricky Skaggs and Keith Whitley who, as teenagers, had joined the band just a year or so before.

That said, their featured number, “Don’t Cheat In Our Hometown” is one of the highlights of the set. Jack Cooke’s plain-spoken take on “Sittin’ On Top Of the World” is another.

The real standout is fiddler, Curly Ray Cline, who closes the set with “Orange Blossom Special”, fiddling the ode to that mighty train like it was the grandest, most terrible thing he had ever seen. Who knows? Maybe it was.
