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 destroy it.

It's unusual to see a Daytona in a car show..but this one is really special.

Moreover, I had the Dodge Shadow turbo in 1987. That was during my Pentastar Period!

1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies, cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States. Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.
