Want to meet NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt Jr., but can’t get him to show up when you blow your Dale Call? Well, if you’ve got a spare 80 grand to spend, you could get an autograph and a meet-and-greet from number 88 himself.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is selling his own 1955 Chevy Bel Air on eBay, and to sweeten the deal, he’s promised to autograph the car and personally hand the keys over to the winning bidder. (Note: the buyer has to go to the seller’s location if he or she wants the optional interaction).

Specially built by Funkmaster Flex’s Team Baurtwell (with a chassis modified by Jim Meyer Racing Products), this custom classic features a 500 horsepower 434 small block V8 engine, a five-speed Hurst shifter with an 8-ball grip, and a set of  chrome wheels with Jr.’s former #8 on them.

Although it’s gorgeous, the car must have been too slow for Junior’s liking, as the odometer reads zero. By contrast, the 1999 Corvette Calloway C12 that Earnhardt is also selling on eBay has 23,432 miles on it.
