Joe Dirt upgrades his Daytona

Recommended Posts

He said he may drive it to some location and stand on the hood? He doesn't deserve it.

That is what the article claims he said.

You do know that anything David Spade says in an interview is rarely (if ever) meant to be taken seriously, right? :)

Haha. They so need to use that in the new movie. They could say he rebuilt that "pile" (as I recall him calling it) from the first movie.

I remember reading about that specific Daytona back in the early 90's in Mopar Action !

The story goes that the car was modified from new with numerous then-popular upgrades ( M/T rocker covers , L-88 type hood scoop , etc. ) and wore a psychedellic paint job .

After seeing how the car looked as a customised version , I really wish that it was left that way ; it was sweet !!

Otis Chandler had this car as part of his collection back in the day .

I did a little Google Images digging and found this "Before" shot of the "JOE DIRT" car. Frankly, I like the one Spade just bought a lot better, but this shot might be an inspiration for someone to build a companion for their Joe Dirt model... :

So what if he wants to stand on the hood , he only weighs about 35 pounds . :lol:

So he didn't find it in Auto Trader.

Remember he had it in the shop getting a hippy gas pedal put in.

The biggest , glaring "mistake" that I can see with the customised version is that the seal between the nose and the fenders was left unpainted ! Huge distraction ; negative space of a verticle black line ! Disrupts the ebb & flow of the psychedellic paint job .

Any-one care to photoshop (or what-ever programme's around these days) the image and eliminate that verticle black line ?

Is this the car he just bought or are you meaning the actual Joe Dirt car?

Thats the rubber seal between the fender and the nose..only way to fix it is weld or lead it up. Even then chances of someone doing that to a real Hemi Dayyona is unlikely.

These cars were already back on the uprise in values by the late 70s. . For the most part these cars became almost instant collectibles in no time.
