eBay Buzz: It’s just a Dale Earnhardt show car … but it can be yours

earnhardtIt was 15 years ago today that the NASCAR world changed dramatically as its biggest star died during the last lap of its biggest race.

Dale Earnhardt‘s final Daytona 500 was one that put the spotlight of both the media and collectors on the racing ranks like never before as The Intimidator’s life and his famous No. 3 Chevy were celebrated for all they had accomplished.

Countless diecasts, trading cards and other items were scooped up by collectors and new fans like never before back then. Today? The legend is still strong though the collectibles world has changed dramatically.

So perhaps an impressive item for a high-rolling collector without new toys could be the 1997 Chevy Monte Carlo show car you can see here.

It’s available on eBay — and may not be as expensive as you think.
