There are few worse things that could happen to a limited edition Jeff Gordon Chevrolet Monte Carlo than going up in flames on the highway.

That’s what happened to a woman named Loraine, who had no choice but to watch as her car burned to a crisp along the side of the road.

When the NASCAR racing legend himself found out what had happened to his namesake car, he decided to surprise Loraine with the gift of a lifetime.

Gordon, whose life revolves around cars–and his charities– still had in his possession a couple of the Monte Carlos from 2003, when they cost $28,000. So when he heard about Loraine’s loss, he decided to just go ahead and give her one of them.


Loraine was shocked and thought it was a joke when Gordon presented her with a car from his collection.

The replacement is the same 12-year-old model, but with only 124 miles on it. It looks exactly like it did when it rolled off the assembly line — except for Gordon’s new autograph to Loraine scrawled in silver marker across the dashboard.
