Dave Pomerleau of St. Petersburg, Florida has found what is probably the world's most unique billboard...this 1969 (or is that a 1968?) Daytona! Dave reports that this phony Daytona has been doing advertising duty in this very same spot for the Drake Motor Company in Ft Myers, Florida for at least 10 years!

The nosecone and wing appear to be authentic Daytona pieces, but the body itself is obviously a 1968 Charger. The Lemon Twist and turbine-style wheels are a bit pre-dated for this vintage Charger. The builders of this car didn't bother with small details like headlight doors, A-pillar trim and rear window plug, but I'll bet it still gets a lot of attention from passers-by!
