Guys, I would like to announce my new project.

NASCAR DODGE CHARGER DAYTONA.
As you guys know, i have just bought a 1969 Dodge Charger "Daytona". Dodge built 505 Charger Daytonas, just enought to beat the NASCAR stipulated 500 unit limit to qualify as a production model. Standard engine in the Daytona was the 440 cubic inch V-B, the 426 Hemi was optional.. And at present, one retails for around $ 1,50,000(minimum) . Now, These cars epitomized the spirit of NASCAR. And the daytona and the superbird are by far the holy graille of Muscle Cars. Below, is a picture of the Daytonas at the Daytona 500 in 1968. This was before it had the characteristic nose cone. I plan to do a similar treatment to my Daytona. I will be making special decals which will give it the period Nascar look.

I dont have his number. What is your budget?? If it is around 4k. I suggest you blindly take the trip and get ready to get blown away!

Well, I personally have no bike models as I am not a very big fan of two wheels. But, you should check this out.
