[PICS] A couple of alternative "winged wonders"
Didn't know Spark had done a Daytona but I do have a version by Universal Hobbies which looks pretty sharp, though I can't say whether some of the detailing (like the wheels) is accurate or not.

I also have a pretty nice Plymouth Superbird done by Zaugg (Empire Models), who were a fairly expensive class act in their day. It is white metal.

Just by way of comparison ...

The difference in the bonnet (hood) design between the two seems authentic. The Dodge has those two indentations and the Plymouth was flat. I don't know if the different rear windows are accurate or if one is just wrong, but the Spark window matches the UH version. So maybe the Plymouth was slightly different).

Zaugg also did a pretty fair Dodge Challender to go with the Daytona.
