YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

You know, when I passed this 1988 Dodge Daytona hatchback coupe just outside the Village of Barker the other day, I said to myself “That’s too new to qualify as a Pic of the Day. I have shoes older than that.” But then I started thinking; to any college-aged YAK reader, this car is probably older than they are. So… here it is. There was also such a thing as a Daytona Shelby Z available in 1988, complete with zoomy-looking stripes and spoilers and a turbo engine. This one, despite the “Turbo” nameplate which looks like someone stuck it on the trunklid, is probably not one of them — check out those Dodge Shadow wheels, and hey! where are the spoilers? The 1988 base Daytona coupe listed for $10,025 while the Shelby edition was $13,394.
