Never ends the way you expect: Part Four... The 1969 Charger Daytona Nose in the Barn

Finally making my way back to my friends place (http://carsinbarns.blogspot.com/2011/08/birds-and-bees-in-barns-part-two.html) for the whole reason I came out there, the 69 Dodge Charger Daytona nose. I knew of a gentleman that needed it for a real nose after his original one got mangled in a crash. And my friend just happened to mention he had one. So after three different detours, we were finally in the barn with the nose.

It was in rougher shape then I had envisioned. But it was still an original 69 Dodge Charger Daytona nose. These don't grow on trees. He showed me the pieces his son had made to finish/fix the nose.

I talked with him for a bit longer. Snapped some pictures of the other cars in the barn, I hadn't gotten a very good look the last time. He has a lot of really cool stuff in there. One day he is going to fix them up with his sons.

It was getting late, my friend and I talked a bit longer, but the Sun was setting and I was well past dinner with my family. So we parted company and I headed towards home. It was a absolutely beautiful evening for a drive.
