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.
The Show After the Show
If you love big, loud V8 musclecars, turn your speakers up!
At the end, a 2013 Yenko Camaro nearly takes out a star of
today's Mopar musclecar community, who is characteristically cool and zen
about the whole thing. Tim, you're the Phil Jackson of Mopar guys.

1956 Chevrolet Corvette
The Chevrolet Corvette is a sports car by the Chevrolet division of General
Motors that has been produced in seven generations. The first model, a
convertible, was designed by Harley Earl and introduced at the GM Motorama
in 1953 as a concept show car. Myron Scott is credited for naming the car
after the type of small, maneuverable warship called a corvette. Originally
built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette is currently
manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The National Corvette Museum
documents the car's history, hosts exhibits, tours, and the annual
The first generation Corvette was introduced late in the 1953 model year.
Originally designed as a show car for the 1953 Motorama display at the New
York Auto Show, it generated enough interest to induce GM to make a
production version to sell to the public.
A new body was introduced for the 1956 model featuring a new "face" and
side coves; the tail lamp fins were also gone.
This car was originally built on April 12, 1956 at the St. Louis Plant. The
engine was built in Flint, MI. The previous owner of the car bought the
vehicle in 2004 from Pro-Team Corvette in Ohio.

1970 Dodge Challenger Muscle Car - Panther Pink Video 1 - La Jolla Ca
Checl out this mint 1970 Dodge Challenger shot in La Jolla California and
owned by local resident Lance Pelky. The Challenger is described in a book
about 1960s American cars as Dodges "answer to the Mustang and Camaro." was one of two Chrysler
E-body cars, the other being the slightly smaller Plymouth Barracuda. "Both
the Challenger and Barracuda were available in a staggering number of trim
and option levels" and were intended "to compete against cars like the
Chevrolet Camaro and
Ford Mustang, and to do it
while offering virtually every engine in Chrysler's inventory." However
they were "a rather late response to the ponycar wave the Ford Mustang had started." The author of a
book about "Hemi"-powered muscle cars says that the Challenger was
conceived in the late 1960s as Dodges equivalent of the Plymouth Barracuda,
and that the Barracuda was designed to compete against the Mustang and Camaro. He adds that Chrysler
intended the new Dodge as "the most potent ponycar ever," and positioned it
"to compete against the Mercury Cougar and Pontiac Firebird." Similarly,
the author of a book about the Chrysler pony-cars notes that "[t]he
Barracuda was intended to compete in the marketplace with the Mustang and Camaro/Firebird, while the Dodge
was to be positioned against the Cougar" and other more luxury-type
The Challenger's longer wheelbase, larger dimensions and more luxurious
interior were prompted by the launch of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, likewise a
bigger, more luxurious and more expensive pony car aimed at affluent young
American buyers. The wheelbase, at 110 inches (2,794 mm), was two inches
longer than the Barracuda, and the Dodge differed substantially from the
Plymouth in its outer sheetmetal, much as the Cougar differed from the
shorter-wheelbase Ford Mustang.
Exterior design was done by Carl Cameron, who also did the exterior for the
1966 Dodge Charger. Cameron based the 1970 Challenger grille off an older
sketch of his 1966 Charger prototype that was to have a turbine engine. The
Charger never got the turbine, but the Challenger got that car's grille.
Although the Challenger was well-received by the public (with 76,935
produced for the 1970 model year), it was criticized by the press, and the
pony car segment was already declining by the time the Challenger arrived.
Sales fell dramatically after 1970, and Challenger production ceased midway
through the 1974 model year. About 165,500 Challengers were sold over this
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.

I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Ford Cobra. This particular car is
equipped with a balance and blueprinted 428 Super Cobra Jet. It also has
the drag pack with a four-speed tranny and 4.30 rear gears. It's looking
real tough in black on black and resembles Ford's Nascars from the time. I
hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
