In this video, I walk around the entire Aero Warriors Exhibit at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals at Rosemont. You'll see both production versions of the Dodge Daytona, Plymouth SuperBird, Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler, and NASCAR race versions of the Daytona and Talladega.
As I'm walking, you may be able to notice the subtle difference between the Dodge Daytona and Plymouth SuperBird, even though their noses and wings appear to be identical. Ditto the Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler.
Aero Warriors at Muscle Car and Corvette National 2012
One of the biggest assemblages of NASCAR Aero Cars ever planned.
Ford and Chrysler vied for bragging rights on the NASCAR circuit in 1969
and 1970. Ford was first out of the gate with the Torino Talladega and
Mercury Cyclone Spoiler. Chrysler upped the ante with the Dodge Charger
500, and later, the outrageous '69 Charger Daytona and '70 Plymouth
NASCAR put an end to the aerocars with rule changes in 1970, but the
Daytona was the first car to go more than 200 mph on any NASCAR track. Now
there's bragging rights.
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.

Now this is smart Christmas retailing. Draw the women in with the jewelry
-- draw their husbands/boyfriends/significant others in with the model

about the whole thing. Tim, you're the Phil Jackson of Mopar guys.

71 Dodge Daytona
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.

incredible to see one being driven very fast around track!
