This is a true ONE of a KIND BIG BOY toy opportunity for the lucky new owner! It is the best known historic Penske IROC race car in Public Hands, as Penske and company keeps all his secretly built IROC cars as they are rarely ever for sale. This unique PENSKE IROC Pontiac Firebird Trans Ams car number 22 has the extra valuable collectors car history in relation to all other IROC car history"s. This is the very IROC car which was the special car chosen and pulled aside for each and every still photo and or videos for all IROC global commercial media marketing - picture or film releases involving the Penske IROC True Value Firebird Trans Am Series which ran a term of about 8 years. So if you see any photos or video"s of a IROC True Value car in any add or commercial print or video, it is this very one and only car number 22! I believe this is the exact repaint of car Dale Sr. drove to his first, one and only IROC victory in 1999, as Car 22 was the most protected IROC car. Car 22 was specifically chosen and set aside as the private personal gift given personally by Mr. Penske directly to the OWNER - CEO of True Value corporation, given as a remembrance of all their dedicated sponsorship until the series ended. Car is painted color style of when Dale Earnhardt Sr. won his One and Only IROC race, a stand out bright Yellow paint color with MacDonald"s sponsor logo and and Dale Earnhardt Sr. name on car as the driver.
An additional tid-bit of history and value is the fact that I was told by Penske corporation management employees upon a follow up investigative phone calls, this car number 22 has been driven prior to its gift retirement, by every single NASCAR driver of notable names during 8 plus year series, ALL the top 20 most famous NASCAR drivers have all drove this car # 22 at one time or another and Dale Earnhardt Sr. near to last driver. Penske painted Dale Sr. driver number one plus name on this car, as Dale Sr. earned slot One. Dales Sr. name is appropriately displayed on this unique car as a driver and this is why this is best IROC collectable car. Billionaire Penske chose to be gift car 22, as an exceptional very special parting gift to the super wealthy owner of True Value Corp., honoring his company sponsorship.
Only one lucky person who can realize the enjoyment in owning the growing value and history of a true One of a kind history, in its new ownership. Everyone, I mean everyone who sees this car wants to take a photo with this car where ever it is displayed, no less be the lucky new owner who gets to drive it in a vintage road race on a road course, on any track in USA, Canada! I originally 18 years ago, spent near $34,000 invested in parts plus labor costs at a proper certified NASCAR shop located in Carolina"s, in prepping and preparing this car for vintage road racing courses again, as it was originally set up for oval racing at time of the last purchase. All the oval track style parts that were taken off are going as extras, with new owner. I owned the car privately in a collection near 18 years and this is the second offering to sell to public. So invest comfortably knowing the history and be happy with this investment, as a true One of a Kind, which does not lose its value but will gain in its value, as it ages. A car for the Big Boy pockets books! No tire kicker inquiries please, stated with respect to all.
