1969 Dodge Daytona, pick-a-pair; Photos and More

If you like the winged cars from Chrysler you have to check out our Feature Car page and the TWO 1969 Dodge Daytonas we have there. These were photographed at the 2008 Monster Mopar Weekend in St. Louis earlier this year. These cars represent the Dodge warriors that hit the NASCAR race tracks in 1969 to do battle with the aero cars from Ford and Mercury; the Ford Talladega and Mercury Spoiler II. You can read and see more about these two cars on our site at our Museum Page, just Click Here.

The first is an all original unrestored example of a 44o with automatic transmission. It is driven regularly and shows it but drew as much attention at the show as any car in the Aero Warrior Coral. It is owned by Jim and Delma McCauley.

The second 1969 Dodge Daytona is also a 440 automatic but is beautifully restored and owned by Dan Printz. The weather at the show was wet and chilly but both owners as well as many other were not a faid to bring there cars out and show them off.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
