I would go with the shadow because the lighter weight... but the 89 has the common block, which is stronger.
Both good points, another bonus on the daytona though is that the tranny will be an A-555 which will be stronger then the shadow tranny, which is the 523 I belive, someone please correct me if I'm wrong. The 89 will also have the larger swingevalve and downpipe. But the Z is a pig. Shadow is a little more of a sleeper, doesn't look as sporty as the daytona.BLASINTEBO said:I would go with the shadow because the lighter weight... but the 89 has the common block, which is stronger.
My '87 CSX # 252 was 400# lighter than my '87 Shelby Z... Now the Z is about the same as my '87 ES...MVaughn said:Both body styles I have owned for a good bit. The shadown is about 150 lbs. lighter depending on the options of the two cars. Better trans, block in the daytona. I think the daytona looks better and there is a little more room, but that is partially preference of the owner. What is right for me might not be right for you. Good luck.

must be driver skill that gary has, not just luckcawcislo said:I love Gary's site and have learned tonnes from www.thedodgegarage.com, but his 89 red daytona seems to be an anomaly. I've got an 87 and have been trying for 3 years to get into the 13's never mind high 12's. Seems like Gary's got more luck with cars than most (except for his last misfortune with Relentless). Good luck with your car.
