Gary & Pam Beineke built their 1971(G-Series) wingcars based upon results from a secret wind tunnel test report Chrysler had conducted in early 1970 on the new 71 Dodge and Plymouth B-bodies. No full scale cars were ever built...until now. After building a car they tested the full scale version in the A2 Wind Tunnel. This video shows the smoke testing from that day.

1985 Dodge Daytona Turbo
A video of my Daytona, there hard to find now. I had one for my first car
back in 1995 and always thought they were neat cars. 2.2L turbo, 146 hp and around 170 torque was not bad
back in 1985. I recently sold this car to a young kid I'm hoping he don't
The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest
muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some,
envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in
our garage any day.
Vintage Test Drive of a 1969 Hemi Dodge Daytona Charger in Quebec Canada
This is a rare video of a 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger with a 426 Hemi engine
being tested flat-out at Mont Tremblant in Quebec Canada by test driver
Jacques Duval. Many people do not realize that the infamous Daytona Charger
was actually more 70 Charger than 69 as it used the fenders and hood from
the upcoming 70 Charger.
Wind Tunnel Test: "43" 1971 Petty Superbird
Gary & Pam Beineke built this race version G-Series Superbird-stable mate
to the K&K Daytona-a next generation, 'what-if' tribute to Petty and the
'71 NASCAR season that never was.
They took the car to Mooresville NC "Race City USA" to test in the A2 Wind
Tunnel. Although a full scale version was never built in 1971 Chrysler
performed wind tunnel development on a 3/8 scale model until NASCAR made a
rule change for the 71 season that would ban the wing cars from
competition. Gary Romberg is the technical director at AeroDyn & A2, and
also one of the original aerodynamicists that worked on the wing cars back
when they were developed at Chrysler. Notes and data from the 3/8 model
were donated to the Wing Warriors Car Club and the Beineke's built their
car based off data results from those wind tunnel tests in the 70's.
Romberg was on hand to see a project he worked on over 40 years ago get
built into a full scale version.
