Dale Earnhardt Sr. was regarded as “The Intimidator” and he lived up to that nickname, specifically at the race monitor.
1 time at Michigan International Speedway, he was undertaking speed automobile rides and I quickly read, “Edsall! Get your butt into this vehicle!” And I did, with no hesitation.
Another NASCAR weekend at the track, I had a JDM-spec Nissan Figaro as my exam vehicle, and most likely the only items it experienced in prevalent with a Winston Cup car or truck was 4 wheels and tires (even its steering wheel was on the other side of the passenger compartment).
But Earnhardt took an desire in the motor vehicle, climbed in powering the wheel and drove it previous all the guards and into the garage area so he could present it off to the other racers and his crew.
Which brings us to the Decide on of the Day, a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Intimidator / Dale Earnhardt Signature Series being presented for sale on ClassicCars.com by its personal proprietor — considering the fact that new!
The vendor was an employee of a Chevrolet dealership when the car or truck was launched and reviews having “all forms of documentation that generally is hardly ever offered to the community.”
“I am the original proprietor, presenting the highest, thoroughly documented 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo ‘Dale Earnhardt Signature Series’ auto identified to exist,” the vendor studies.
“Excellent problem inside of & out. Vehicle is 100% all authentic, other than for the battery! It has only 29K unique miles. This automobile runs & drives perfect. The first, hardly ever utilized, ‘#3 Intimidator’ ground mats even now in trunk! Very preserved & garage stored. This is a constrained generation, collector vehicle #1935 of only 3,333 at any time developed! (see certificate of authenticity).”
The seller provides that the motor vehicle was made by Earnhardt and NASCAR group proprietor Richard Childress and was “made available right from Chevrolet. All other related cars, were hardly ever formally sanctioned by Richard Childress Racing, and don’t have any #3’s or RCR logo’s everywhere on them. This includes all other Chevrolet ‘Intimidator’ models. This is a incredibly attractive motor vehicle for any Earnhardt/NASCAR lover!”
The seller also notes that the motor vehicle has been autographed — and involves in the commercials photographs of individuals autographs becoming composed in the auto — by Dale Earnhardt Jr., Childress, crew chiefs Kirk Shelmerdine and Andy Petree, group fuel guy Chocolate Myers, and by Danny Lawrence, Earnhardt’s motor tuner and pit crew member.
Not like the cars and trucks Earnhardt raced on the monitor, Monte Carlos had been powered by Chevrolet’s 3.8-liter V6 engines which have been rated at 200 horsepower, which includes Intimidator styles.
