"It's just a huge old bird," Earnhardt says of the Nomad. "My father had one in his collection, and that was probably my favorite car, the one I always gravitated to when I went and looked at his cars." It's not as though this is a sleeper model that collectors clamor for. To the contrary, he explains its appeal with his trademark honesty: "It's a cheap car, you know, because I'm a tight ass. I don't like to spend a lot of money." He says that it's the car he'd drive to Daytona if he was going down to watch the race instead of trying to win it.
