One car that rendered a second look over the shoulders of bystanders was Larry Cheffer's '84 Monte Carlo. Although the car looked like a NASCAR-inspired stocker from afar, it wasn't until you got up close that you noticed the front end had been slanted forward, the entire engine compartment handcrafted, the rear end reworked, and so much more. Put it this way: the car was inspired by Dale Earnhardt, which he never got to see, unfortunately. But Larry brought the car to the DEI car show and Jr. offered to buy it off him! If that isn't a compliment, I dunno what is.
