I never seemed to have the opportunity to really give her gas in this. I never got above about 60% throttle, and didn't get close to the red line. Too much traffic. You can clearly hear the Blow off valve. Which, other than a muffler, is the only mod. on this car.
I hope you enjoy the cruise. I had to edit out parts because I didn't want to show other peoples tags on here. A while back when I posted the B.O.V. someone asked me to post a video when she was driving again. So here you go!
I had an accident back in October. I spun out,(wet road, animal in the road) and went into a ditch. It didn't hurt the body, but it messed up the K member (broken in three places). I drove it home without knowing this after the tow truck pulled me out. Any way, after a friend welded, and reinforced the K member she's back on the road.
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
1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z MaroonSlvr NSmyr052212
This car looks very familiar...very similar to the '85 Chrysler Laser turbo that I had! I think the top brass at
Chrysler were determined to turn the K-car into a sporty little
machine..and this was a good attempt. The interior was made of quality
materials...I had trouble with the linkage of the manual transmission.
Test Drive 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona 440 V8
It's not often that we get to look at a car like this one. It's an
original 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. This beast is one of only 503
Daytona's built and it's in truly immaculate condition. It's still powered
by the original 440 V8 4 BBL, factory rated at 375 HP and 480 Lb-Ft of
torque. This is one of the famous winged cars, that forced rule changes in
Nascar after breaking all the speed records at the time. It's painted in
the correct T5 Copper paint and it's riding on a beautiful set of Magnum
500 chrome rims, with white letter tires. This is definitely one of the
most collectible Mopar's of all time and one of the most sought after
muscle cars of any type. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking
