Last time we reminded you of the up coming Aero Car Reunion at the Tim Welborn Museum in Alexander City AL and at the Talladega Speedway. This time we want to give you a peak at our ride for that event, our 1969 Dodge Nuremberg Daytona. This is the car restoration you have been following for the past couple of years on this web site.
