“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
It provided real, useable downforce at 200MPH, it is bolted to the internal unibody inside the trunk.
Think the babe could hold on at 200MPH, Knuckle?
Nice touch.....Richard Petty Blue....
My oldest son, who took apart and rebuilt my lawnmower engine (with permission) for fun at age 12 and is studying mechanical engineering and wants to own his own race team, and I argue about that thing all the time. While I acknowledge his stating that it really worked (like KB said up top), he does not want to acknowledge my statement that it's ugly AF. I'm trying to convince him that we can both be right.
Is that Janice Pennington?
I've heard tell of a woman that had bought one of those cars- in blue- and has kept it ever since...Is she the owner of the car?
Read somewhere that the wing was so tall so it could get tot he "clean air" that ended up provideing almost 1200 lbs of downforce.
Nope,it was so the trunk lid could open.
Back then girls in Go-Go boots were considered hot!`
Is that Linda Vaughan. Don't really think so. These MoPars (the aero Daytonas, and the Road Runners, I forget their moniker) were at the pinnacle of factory involvement in racing (when NASCAR used actual manufactured car bodies), and of course, also included the Torino Talladegas, and I believe a Mercury version, the name of which escapes me. Not a NASCAR fan actually, although I used to appreciate the tech programs on TV regarding them. I was and am a drag race fan and for me, as a Mopar fan, loved the factory wars involving the altered wheelbase MoPars and the Ford Thunderbolts. Good times......
GM actually sat this entire facet of American auto racing history, being the cautious businessmen they were, but Smokey Yunick carried their torch with his (I believe my senior memory is somewhat correct) 7/8 scale Chevelle, with or without factory sanction.
