Great idea – thanks.  Jim

DEI Original Owners (#3, #38 …)

#38 DEI

Here are a couple photos of my DEI in Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car museum near Pigeon Forge, TN. Floyd and Dale were personal friends and Floyd is happy to have my car on display since so few people know of them.
I picked it up at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet in June of 02 and jumped on Interstate 40 heading west toward TN. On a flat, somewhat isolated stretch, I stuck my foot in the radiator and ran it up to 120 MPH with the A/C and radio on. It was as smooth as Tennessee whiskey and had plenty more in it. But the real fun was passing other cars struggling to maintain the 55 MPH speed limit up and over the NC mountains. I passed them all in the fast lane doing between 80-90 MPH. It handled like a Go-Kart and I had an absolute blast!
Feel free to include what I have written or edit it as you see fit.

DEI #82 (waiting for photos)

Thanks Nancey

 Nancey & Mike from Minnesota are original owners of DEI #80

….from Nancey (March 20, 2012)……….

Just avid Dale Earnhardt fans!! Sent deposit in January and he passed in February…..Didn’t think we were going to get a car, but did, and one with t-tops to boot. We have the only car that went to Minnesota. The car just rolled 6k miles. Doesn’t get driven much, only for car shows and one weekend at Rock Falls Raceway.(now that was fun, car was tailored there, ran it’s races, and then tailored home)Phase II engine – hood states 500HP rather than the 381HP as most of the cars have.Only addition to the car is on the back window- has a white window sticker that has racing flags and states “In Memory of 3”.My daughter used the car to take her SR picture on a back country rolling road….turned out awesome.

Are you the original owner of any GMMG?

Please send photos, mileage, car shows & general information & I’ll add it to the Registry.
