Learn about the Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird

Buddy Baker 200 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona with its famous tail wing.

The following video is fun and educational. HOWEVER, Donut Media really missed on the Ford part of the video. It is obvious this is not an educational video that had much research done on the competition.

The Ford model that was whipping the MOPAR in 1969 was not a Grand Torino. That is a real novice mistake. The 1969 Ford Talladega AND the 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II were the cars putting the MOPAR’s to shame. If you want to know the facts about the Ford cars check out the Talladega and Spoiler Registry at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com .

Charlie Glotzbach drove a Daytona and was fast but he was not the first to do an official NASCAR lap of 200 mph. That title clearly belongs to Buddy Baker.

It is an entertaining video and does include some interesting facts but it also has it’s share of fake news.

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.
