Vent Page LXX = the FASTEST Vent Page Ever!
We've been doing these Vent Pages for some time now but, it doesn't seem like we could possibly have already reached Vent Page Number 70!!
VENT PAGES are handy for posting of off-topic posts, rants, raves, rages, etc, which might not be appropriate on other threads where adults are having serious discussions. Childish rant? Need to call another poster a name? Just feel like spouting off? Or even if you have something to say and there doesn't seem to be any other logical place to say it....THIS PAGE IS FOR YOU!
And our vehicle choice for representing the 70th Vent Page is a car that was specifically designed for NASCAR racing and only sold to retail customers because of NASCAR rules requiring a certain number of vehicles to be sold to the public in order for a car to qualify as a "stock" car for NASCAR. The 69 Dodge Daytona - first of the winged cars - was successful the prior year and Plymouth built their version for 1970.
In point of fact, the car was pretty much unbeatable on Nascar Super Speedways - but the streamlined front end and the rear spoiler "wing" were of no use at speeds under 100MPH and had no value on the drag strips. The extra weight of the winged cars actually lessened their performance at the drag strip. Nontheless- somewhere between 2 and 3000 of these "street cars" were sold through dealerships - an estimated 1,000 still exist today.
