Chevrolet "Intimidator" Monte Carlo Will Be Auctioned for Charity

A decade ago, General Motors announced a limited run off of 2002 Chevy Monte Carlo coupes. Know as the SS “Intimidator,” these cars were built as a tribute to the late, great NASCAR legend Dale Earhardt.

Given their limited production and unique trim and color scheme, these cars have become quite prized in certain circles, notably among NASCAR fans and even car collectors. Now one of these cars, in much the same condition as when it first rolled off the line, is being sold for a worthy cause.

It will be auctioned off at the spring Toronto Classic Car Auction with part of the proceeds being donated to a local hospital to help fund a new urgent care unit.

93-Year-Old Great-Grandma Retires 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente After 575,000 Miles

They sure don’t make cars like they used to – and Rachel Veitch can attest to that. This 93 year old is still driving the 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente she bought brand new. But it’s the end of an era, as Rachel prepares to hang up her car keys for good.

After amassing 575,000 miles on a car she’s named Chariot, Rachel has decided to give up driving after running a stoplight. As well, she’s having difficulty reading large print in newspaper headlines.

They’ve spent so much time together, she knows her Mercury inside and out. The car comes with its factory-installed air conditioner and she’s kept meticulous records – from the day she bought the car (brand new for $3289) to every oil change and extended warranty. Chariot even became part of the family – Rachel threw birthday parties for her beloved car. She’s the original owner, so she can honestly say that a little old woman drove it around… although not just to church on Sundays.

“She’s better than three husbands, she’s never lied to me, she’s never cheated on me and I can always depend on her,” says Rachel. As to Chariot’s future, Rachel doesn’t know what she’s going to do with her car. It’s now valued at $12,000 and it doesn’t look like she’ll be passing it down to her grandchildren or great-grandchildren – they just wouldn’t give it the attention it deserves. Apparently, Rachel made an appearance on the Jay Leno show in 2010 and hinted that she’d let it go to the right late night talk show host.

You can see the fiesty senior taking one last joyride below.

Subaru WRX STI Powered VW Beetle is One Fast Bug
