Immerse yourself in the Aero Wars era and take a thorough look at how Chrysler climbed the ladder to NASCAR supremacy using the Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird.

Author Steve Lehto provides a detailed account of the history of Chrysler's battle with Ford, which culminated with the final wars between the Dodge Daytona/Plymouth Superbird and the Ford Talladega/Mercury Cyclone. The story of Richard Petty's defection from Plymouth, the mighty Hemi, and the creation of the street version of these cars come to light in this all-encompassing tale.

In the fiercely competitive world of NASCAR, every manufacturer was looking for a competitive edge. Ford and Chrysler turned their attention to the aerodynamics of their race cars, resulting in the Aero Wars. During the height of this competition, Chrysler and Ford produced, among other things, cars with radically altered grilles and tail sections. Mandated by NASCAR to produce production versions, these exotic beasts became some of the most costly, creative, and collectible machines ever assembled in Detroit, whether in race trim or in stock street trim.

Dodge Daytona and Plymouth Superbird: Design, Development, Production and Competition delivers a blow-by-blow account of the biggest races between FoMoCo and Chrysler, along with telling the rich stories of the development of these cars. If you are a fan of NASCAR, or just love outrageous muscle cars, this richly detailed and well-illustrated account of a fascinating era of performance will be a valued addition to your library.
