OK here we go with a test of your knowledge of all things old and fast. A Pic or a bit of info will be posted and you must match the correct car to this. If you do then you can add the next challenge.

I will start with a picture. Tell me the car it belongs to and you can do the next challenge.

I do have a sticker like this at the back of my...Megane , but i believe it came from a Biiip Biiiip , sorry ! from a Plymouth roadrunner ( you know that kind of car wich is obviously ridiculous shaped , but wich everybody dreamed once to "drive" )

Hey cool place here , remind me something " d?ja vu " but can't figure what ?

Ciao a tutti amici  dance

That was a heck of a close guess. Yes the Road Runner was the Plymouth varient of this car. However the sister car to the Road Runner/Superbird was also the same body style. There is yet a better clue...

Yes but what was the Bee logo originally used on? Bonus for what Nascar used the car for and any history on the car.

There was a specific model name for this car when it came out with that logo.

Sorry for any translation's confusion , but i think you want to read : 1969 Dodge charger daytona 500 , maybe you're talking about King Richard , but i'm not sure.
I had a lot of interrest for US 70's beasts (more mustang by my side...due to Steve Mcqueen !) but i'm defintly not a specialist in Nascar and Mopar history  rolleyes

Yeep , it's a very cool logo !

Super Bee was what I was looking for. You did most of the work though so it is your turn to bring up some history for us to Digest...

For what it is worth Richard Petty - The King, drove the sister car which was the Plymouth Super Bird. The Super Bird and the Dodge Daytona were sister cars and looked practically identical. Both cars were used at the big ovals as Aero Cars even though little was really known about car based aerodynamics. The reason for the high wing on the rear was so that you could open the trunk on the road cars. At that time you had to use a real street car in Nascar and specs like that had to match. The big wing did cause more drag than anything but it looked cool and sold a lot of cars for Chrysler.

I grant that I gave a fairly tricky question to begin this. Here are some pics of the variations so that everyone can see these historical beasts.

Dodge Super Bee



Dodge Daytona



Plymouth Road Runner



Plymouth Superbird



And yet some more neat facts as given by various sites

 Huh PFFFOOOOAAAAA ! This game is a bit too much specialized for me ! Finding cool logos from nascar history..?! I think that the bee and beeep are the only 2 !

Of course there's a lot of very interresting olds muscle cars , but about their logo.....NADA !

Browsing some nice pages (and some...really , Hummm ) i remind a couple of cars we didn't meet Dodge and sisters on track , but use to race in the same period in US...



Not that hard to find , and yes it doesn't match the rules...

Well actually it does fit the rules quite nicely as this is a car with a proud musclecar heritage. In fact it was first known as a Ponycar as it's competition was of course the Mustang. The Camaro Z28 first appeared in 1967 and grew to be one of the most adaptable and popular American Muscle Cars of all time. In fact they have also raced in many series not least of which is TransAm. These cars were lightweight, contained a large variation in Engine/Transmissions when you ordered the car and over the years become one of the most adaptable cars you could own and drive.

And yes Ponycars are considured by many to be true Musclecars. Myself included.

Ronnie Bucknum #9, 1969 TransAm series Under the Roger Penske Banner. I believe he won Mid Ohio that year.
