    I am a licensed forensic engineer and so I will take one for the team and volunteer to perform the drive testing for this 20 year comparison. Gratis!

        I liked the larger fins and steeper rake to the Superbird tail, and the cleaner nose without the center grill.

          BB Bella. It's a Charger Daytona or Daytona Charger. Technically, the Daytona is just a Charger with a nose cone and wing. Same with the Superbird, just a Roadrunner with a nose cone and wing. Besides the nose cones and wings, I believe there's something else that makes them different other than being a regular Charger or Roadrunner. Just don't remember what though.

            Roadrunner used 70 Coronet fenders and Coronet hood with modified front extension and rear window plug and stainless A pillar moldings.

            Daytona,fenders and hood were 70 Charger design,stainless a pillar moldings and modified rear window

              62Max. Am I right about them being the same as the regular Daytona and Roadrunner?

                Daytona was built on the Charger R/T platform and the bird on the RM 23 Roadrunner 2 door hardtop.

                Modified my earlier post.

                    I voted Superbird since I figured the rarer Daytona would get the vote. I think the Bird is a more complete and well thought out version of the “rushed to production” Daytona.

                        Cool history but neither, I'd rather have a RR or Charger minus the nose and wing. Goofy looking cars unless their in Nascar form, then they look really cool. Wings and aerodynamic noses just don't look right at factory ride height to me.

                          Having owned 3 Daytonas, I have to agree that they look really, really cool in race trim, but not as good in street trim.

                            I love them both. Just could never afford one. I prefer the Daytona. I like the different body to wing/stripe combos available. The birds all look the same in the few colors. I was never a big fan of the big Plymouth on the quarters either.

                              Have had my Superbird for 31 years. Remember seeing the Daytona new at the Dodge Dealer with my Father. Went gaga over it and my Father asked what the hect is wrong with you? Love them both but still love my bird the best

                                  I've often wondered how fast Buddy Baker would have run with better spark plugs. :)

                                    I love them both and wanted either one a long time ago, but the '69 Charger 500 is my overall favorite...for the street. I don't have one of those either. :(
