Bobby Isaac's Championship winning 1970 Charger Daytona, it's sponsored by K&K insurance, an Indianapolis-based company that specialized in covering motorsports events, ironicaly, it's insurance companies that helped doom the wing cars to failure on the street. In 1969, a single white male with a clean driving record had to shell out a whopping $800 a year (in 1969 dollars) for coverage if he bought a Daytona, by 1970 dealers were dumping these things for as little as $3000 and still couldn't sell them

Yeah, but imagine a time when you could just walk into a dealership and BUY something like this. It wasn't about looks, it was about being the baddest mammajamma on the street

Yeah, and cars like this generaly didn't cost more than 5K, that's in 1960's dollars, but still, that was relatively affordable blue-collar prices for cars that ran 13's, 12's or even 11's right off the lot

the #71 was a classic. Spent a lot of time out at Bonneville in the early 70s. There used to be some controversy over the #71, some people said it wasn't the real one, that it was a converted regular daytona. Then they were going to resto it in like '96 and found some salt stuck between the gas tank and the frame rail.

meaning it was the original #71, for those of you who didn't get it.

Ahh... Bobby Isaac. His death is still very weird and creepy... in the early '70s, he was leading a Nascar race, then promptly pulled into the pits, and got out of the car, and never raced in Nascar again. He said he had heard voices inside his car telling him to get out and stop racing.

... a few years later, he decided to start racing again, but at a local short track in a small-time racing series... midway through the race, he complained of exhaustion, pitted, got out of his car, rested on the side of a pickup truck, and died. :(

*pours 40 on the curb*

#1, People are still shocked when a Daytona or Superbird are "discovered" rotting away in an old shed or garage... not realizing that there WAS a time when muscle cars, no matter rarity or pedigree, were essentially worthless.

Hell, just watch "Used Cars" for that final scene... plenty of muscle cars that, at the time, had very little intrinsic value... now they'd actually be worth restoring and carry a profit.

#9, It wasn't uncommon for a down-on-his-luck character in and early 80's TV show or movie to be driving a Chevelle or GTO with badly faded paint and dented/rusty bodywork as shorthand that he was a down on his luck schlep who couldn't buy a better car, not that he was the proud owner of a desirable fix-er-up.
