I'm been kicking an idea around in my head for quite a while and I think now's the time to ask if someone can turn this vision into something. Basically, I'm asking anyone with automotive artistic/photoshop talent to draw a cool modification to a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona.

I LOVE Mopar's winged warriors. I love their tall trunk-clearing wings, their long aerodynamic noses, and their slopes windshields. The only problem I have is that their headlights are just so...un-aerodynamic. So I thought to myself, "Why not convert the nose so that the headlights are fixed without compromising the shape of the nose?" I drew inspiration from two cars in particular, the 1967 L88 Corvette racecar and the 1991 787B LeMans winner. Notice how the Corvette's iconic rotating headlights were replaced with glass-covered fixed units but it stays in line with the nose's shape.

Furthermore, the Daytona's inlet hole it somewhat cluttered with those turn signals/DRL units so why not relocate those inside the covers. This is where I used the 787B for help. By mounting the turn signal above and between the headlights! Also, double cibie headlights with dark surrounds are a weakpoint of mine.

I'm politely asking if anyone would like to try and sketch out this concept of mine because I'd really like to see it as a physical image than a mental one. Here's a rough idea of what it'd look like. Basically dual round headlights with black or dark grey surrounds behind a fiberglass/glass cover.

Bonus points if you can turn this into something that should've appeared at LeMans in 1969!
