strange Dodge front end

Has anyone had a chance to look at the front of the Dodge cars in NASCAR for 2004? I've known for a while that they canned some of the Intrepid for a Stratus-style grille, but now the 'headlights' have to be different too...

See what you make of it.

Perhaps a hint of things to come? Maybe a Charger will have the style grill?

I don't like the new look the trep style was a heck of a lot mean(er) looking, that just looks all bodged together

Bodged; - British definition- to force things together that do not belong together, or that are not the same.

I made the same speculation in the LX General Discussionm but it reminded me of the Magnum front end. I know Magnum will never be in NASCAR, but thats all I could come up with...

The front of the NASCAR Intrepid looks the way it does to fit the templates but it has the higher grill openings for downforce, The teams perfected the grill openongs in the wind tunnel and in the end it ended up taking on a Stratus style front look.

I've actually heard rumors of a Daytona or Charger being Dodge's entry in to NASCAR next season, since this is the last year of Trep. There final plans should be by June I believe to show their new entry, at least at a design level for NASCAR approval. I made a post last season saying that the grill looked like that of the Charger concept. But the headlights boggle me but they are probably a hint of whats to come next year.
