I met Dave the owner builder of this one of a kind car today at a local car show. This car started life as a 1986 Dodge Daytona Turbo, and has come a long ways since then due to Dave's obvious ability as a master Craftsman and fabricator. The entire project was done in Dave's garage at his house.
Not only does the hood/front clip tilt forward for access, but the entire body tilts off the frame in the opposite direction. I bet you've never seen one like this before. ;)

Dave explained that the engine is a true "Six Pack" 440 CI engine from a Super Bee. Check out those custom fender/fender liners.

Note the attention to detail here. ;)

One more, A hint of what it looks like from the drivers point of view. :cool:

The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

That's a great find, Bruce! Truly unique! Is it a show car or daily driver?

sorry for saying but .....is there any possibility it could fold up on the highway if something, which was not supposed to, became unstuck
wondering what extra safety catches are needed and are the insurance costs higher

Thanks Frank, I would have to say it's a "Driven" show car. It IS licensed for the street.
Marie, I'm sure Dave has the body locked down quite securely. His attention to detail here was very meticulous. ;)

Hahaha! You've been looking at my profile eh? That just showed up way over a year ago when something went wrong with the forum software. I just couldn't be bothered to change it. :p

I guessed all was above board

no insult meant to Dave (or you) and I know there was probably non taken
I just wondered about all the legal stuff regarding same and how it is 'seen' by whoever looks into these things
