Gen2 Daytona Charger looks well coolio!

Gen2 Birdy looks kinda oddball, nose is too high for my liking.
Chunky trunk-lid spoiler would have been enough for me too. (EVO style)

"Gen 2" usually refers to the 68-70 B body period, 69-70 wingcars are the F series, and "3rd Gen" 1971  B bodies of the winged variety are G series designation

I assume your referencing the 71 Superbird nose? I chose the 12" minimum change nosecone for the project as it incorporated the 71 RR/GTX/Sat lower valance, grille, lights, etc, etc...I felt it would have been a possible compromise made by Chrysler management if the cars were produced for public consumption based on NASCAR's rules regarding available production units to qualify the car for track status

One thing most don't notice is the complete lack of any fender scoops on the 1971 3/8 scale aero test models, no mention, no intention for their use at all, which I found strange


However when I was fabricating the 71 Tona and Bird I knew there was no intention of using fender scoops after reading the Gseries wind tunnel test posted from 1970, but I felt the cars needed them, in keeping with "tradition" of the 69 and 70 models appearance, and not having them would bring into focus either awkward looks or questions as to WHY they're not present, not one person has ever commented on the "fact" that the 71's have fender scoops where there should be none?

I have to confess - I love the 71 Body Style better than the one I have.   I know its one of those crazy things - but I keep waiting to hit the lottery and come beg you to take my money!     Your work is amazing.

The Daytona uses the stock 1971 electric motor and single rod to connect the headlites together, the Black 71 Aero Superbee/Tona used 2 stock 71 electric motors mounted on each headlite bucket, the 71 Bird uses 84-87 Pontiac Fiero motor on each headlite assy, sorry no pics of the smaller assys/fabrications, these cars were built 12-14 years ago

Thanks and interesting stuff with great pictures, but back to my original post, please.

I can inspect Mopars with the best of them for accuracy, but I am lost on Fords. Can someone recommend a person to inspect a Talladega for me for correctness and body/mechanical? PM if needed or just email me tax...@gmail.com

Ready to pull the trigger on a white Talladega and putting the 65 Barracuda on ebay or with gateway in a couple of weeks.
Thanks
