Only in Vegas. Madame Tussaud's unveiled their latest ghastly likenesses; we're not sure if the fact that the subjects are still alive makes it more creepy. The work is uncanny in its accuracy and lifelike look, and if you're in Vegas, Tussaud's is a veritable family attraction. The reason for the paraffin-ization of the left-turning legends was the kickoff of this weekend's races at Las Vegas's own Motor Speedway. The flesh and blood Petty and Earnhardt were on hand for the debut of their inanimate doppelgangers at the Neon Garage, though we're not sure if they'll be paying any visits to the exhibit's permanent home at the Venetian. They could roam the exhibit halls and catch glimpses of such luminaries as John Holmes (we're not sure if it's all of "Wad," or a partial model) Siegfried and Roy (before or after the mauling, again, not sure), and of course Fat Elvis. Good times, good times. Now, where's that buffet...

      Petty is a toothy bastard.

      The Petty one is freaking me out. I'm pretty sure the blue shirt is the real one (I think the color temperature of the flash is wrong, the wax skin looks orange)...but dang. The sculptors did well on that one.

      I guess it's somehow flattering to be able to see yourself as others must see you. I also think Mr. Petty in the blue shirt is the flesh and blood one, as his teeth are parted in the smile. Mr. Earnhardt, unfortunately, doesn't look as good as his wax replica...getting kind of chunky?

      Like I should talk?

      Poor old Petty - he looks like a Blind Cowboy with AIDS.

      Petty looks dead on... Jr looks horrible.

      The Petty one looks pretty spot on.
