Back in 2001, Earnhardt and his father drove in the 24 hours of Daytona for Corvette. When they finished (fourth) some executives from Corvette offered to take one of their cars and remodel it, making it street legal. They got the drive train redone and the bodies spread by eight inches but kept the paint job. "What's unique about the car,"Earnhardt explains, "is that Corvette went and won Le Mans that year and the wings from those two winning cars are on the street versions." He is also happy to have the car as a memento of the race he shared with his father, who died several weeks later at the 500.
