Now THAT one is more doable for my situation.
Does it work well?

My version is more low-tech , I agree about the tennis ball being in the way so I siliconed a small thin strip of ply onto the floor in front of the wheel, just creep up to it, easy as  2thumbs

The Dodge, which was practically stock, just left the Mustang like you wouldn’t believe.” Ron Riner has similar recollections. “The Charger ran rings around the Mustang. We trimmed the tires down (on the Charger), we practically made them down to bicycle tires to try and handicap Hickman, and Bill just run them.”

This is just thoughts on parking a daytona in a 20' deep garage. Depending on stud size, 2x4 or 2x6 I found my car would not fit. You would have to put a lean to or cut a slot in the back wall to allow it to fit. Also remenber to watch overhead door as it  is generally inside the wall perrimeter and you could put the door down on your nose cone or wing and trunklid.  Also do not forget if your car has a four speed there is no neutal start switch, you are not leaving much space if you forget to put clutch in or someone other than you tries to move it.

Also in regards to backing in, watch the wing. i can remember backing a wingcar into a garage and it seemed to me that the wing was canted back enough to touch the wall before the rear bumper. Could of been a case of sunken floor in garage or garage itself had shited under its own weight.

I have another caution.I am looking at building a garage  tall enough to put one car on a hoist and drive another one in underneath. it is a wonderful idea, but unless you put a vaulted ceiling in, a sliding overhead door just might take the top of the wing off when you open it.I  am thinking of a left or right sliding door instead.

All my ideas hing on a city approval and they are not very helpful, put in restrictions and of course raise taxes since there is more building to tax.

If I buy this building I hope to build a shop in the near future, so this would be a short term parking problem, but I have 21 ' in one garage so I think I am fine.  Just need to negotiate a price.

Just remember that 20' is outside measurement of garage. Do not forget to reduce this by 2"x4" construction or 2"x6" studs for framing.  This can reduce the 20' down 1/2 '.. Also garage doors are set in so you might lose even more.  I found trying to put my Daytona in a 20' deep garage appeared to need a lean to or slot in door to allow nose to poke out. Also it may be an optical illusion but it seemed to me the wing was canted toward the back and might be first piece to hit the wall.
Lastly you can not walk around the car and if you have a garage door opener you do not want to test the reversing method by having it try to come down on the nose.
