Shadowoods Automotive was run by Detroit-area racer “Terrible Ted” Tignanelli, and he was one of the few people who used the swoopy ’69 Dodge Daytona styling in the realm of drag racing, though he left the wing at home. This car was a funny car style design but ran in the sportsman class Super Eliminator on gasoline. It first appeared in 1968 as a flip-top second-gen Charger (this is the same body, by the way, with the nose grafted on). The bedspread over the engine was a nice touch.
