One of the last photos of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. as he was climbing in the car @ Daytona Feb. 18, 2001.
Photos was taken by a personal friend of mine – David Saad
David is no longer with us & this is a tribute to Dale & David.
In honor of David his family has asked that you don’t duplicate his photos.

All original Intimidator owners should have received a souvenir photo calemder of their car from Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet in Newton, NC.
Here are a couple of photos of my calender and as you might see, I never removed the first page which is a customer satisfaction survey.
It is laying on the large envelope it came in and is dated June 21 2001.

“When Fast Just Isn’t Fast Enough”
The “381” horsepower is a farce, as the cars really produced upwards of 400. The reason for the 3,8,and 1 was simple.
Earnhardt #3, Earnhardt Jr #8 and Steve Park(the third driver for DEI) #1.

from Mark owner of DEI #20………..
Did you know about the DEI delivery program? It included a tour of the race shop and was an option and additional cost to the purchase of the car, but of course, none got that in the wake of Dale’s passing.
Did your car come with embroidered floor mats? Lots of folks never received theirs, as well as key fobs and car covers. Mine has those, including paper DE chevy floor mats.

……….from Craig – DEI #38……..
A few questions concerning the subject line:
1. Who installed them? GM, SLP or GMMG?
2. Every Black SS I’ve seen has black background with red outlined emblems.
3. Every other color SS I’ve seen has black background with silver outlined emblems.
4. My DEI and every other one has silver outlined emblems.
5. Did GMMG choose the silver outlined emblem thinking they would look better on the black DEI cars?
Might be a question to ask all DEI owners on the Registry.
Enjoy your cars, Craig
Great question – My money is that Matt changed them. He often changed the ‘bow-tie’ emblem & other emblems.
Examples – Grill emblems………….
Dick Harrell had Gold bow-tie
ZL-1 had Blue bow-tie
DEI had White SS
Berger SS had White SS
HRE had Red bow-tie
Tom Henry had White SS
Performance Edition had White SS
If anyone has anything to add, please let me know.
The print quality is poor on the brochures I scanned from Craig. Sorry.
May 20, 2012 – following the DEI cars for sale & sold …………………. Info from Jim Simon…..
Here is some perspective on pricing for signed cars.
DEI #6. Approximately 240 miles asking 98,000.
DEI #1. 1,700 miles, 95,000.
DEI # 20. 39 miles 85,000. (Latebrakeu2)
I could have bought the #21 car for 45,000 a couple of years ago and blew it! It had 611 miles on it and sold at auction for 57,500.
DEI #18 was recently for sale for 55,000.
I don’t know what it sold for but I think it did. DEI #7 sold for 55,000 back in 2007.
DEI #50 was for sale in 2010 for 60,000. It is the only phase 2 signed car that I know of.
The steal was the #15 car that only had 525 miles on it and sold for 32,000! Latebrakeu2 is right though.
The lower the miles the better the outcome.
I think this #12 car is a good deal. I’ll bet you could buy it for 45,000 and 700 miles is still low miles.
These cars should be sure collector cars in the future so if you can buy it you should.
