He told me that he hadn't seen a Daytona in decades and couldn't believe he was seeing one now.
He asked me if I remembered when Dale Earnhardt had once raced Daytonas in the IROC race series and I told him that I remembered that ... early 1990's when Chevy lost the IROC series to Dodge and the Daytona replaced the Camaro as the body style / car that the champions raced in.
The man asked about the history of my Daytona. I told him that I was restoring the Daytona and that it was probably the only Shelby in Mississippi. He agreed, saying he hadn't seen another Daytona let alone a Shelby in a long time. He also told me to restore the car and that judging by looks alone that I had a good start on the project.
Still loving this Daytona and no problems since the fuel line so ...
