With all due respect to impressive recent attempts from NASCAR diehards, we’re confident in saying Dale Earnhardt Jr. now is responsible for the best replica of one of his father’s iconic rides.
Earnhardt has worked on restoring an old Chevrolet Nova since 2019 in an effort to have it resemble the iconic Goodwrench Chevy Lumina paint scheme his father, NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr., once ran in the Cup Series. Well, Earnhardt recently completed the project, and the final product is glorious.

Now, check out the latest developments, including videos of Earnhardt driving the incredible replica:
Yeah, that thing is awesome.
Better yet, Earnhardt apparently plans to use it as the pace car before the May 8 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Darlington Raceway.
