News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - On this day, Febrary 18, 2001, we can't forget the fatal crash that took Dale Earnhardt's life. We also can't forget his legacy.
Ralph Dale Earnhardt Sr., an American race car driver, was born in Kannapolis, North Carolina in April 1951. Known for driving stock cars in NASCAR's top division, he was tabbed the "Ironhead" and "The Intimidator" because of his highly aggressive driving style. Best known for his success in the Winston Cup Series, he won seventy-six races and seven championships tying him for the most all time.
Here at WIW2U, we recognize Earnhardt's accomplishments. To commemorate his career we thought it would be fitting to share some appraised memorabilia of his life. Our first item is a Mac Tools commemorative 24 K gold plated Dale Earnhardt air wrench. This item is a collector's addition but what sets this apart from others is an original signature of Dale Earnhardt on the box. Follow the link to see the appraisal.
Our second appraisal is a one-of-a-kind nose piece of Dale Earnhardt's number 3 car. The twist to this piece is that the item was slightly damaged in a fire, scarring the nose piece and destroying the COA. The appraisal gives some interesting tips on how to obtain a replacement COA or other legal documents. With all the damages our appraiser marks the replacement cost at $5000.
