1988 Chevrolet S-10 pickup
Junior tried to track down the first car he ever owned but it was a fruitless search. Instead Ray Evernham hooked him up with a replica of his beloved truck because Junior had flipped the S-10 when he was a teenager.
“I flipped my S-10 pickup truck driving to my mammaw’s for the family reunion on Christmas Day one time,” Earnhardt said “I was probably about 18 or 19 years old back then. I was working at the dealership as a service mechanic…I wasn’t paying attention, drove off the road, hit a driveway culvert and flipped end over end and rolled a couple times.”
He wasn’t injured in the accident.
