1970 plymouth superbird: If you were a carmaker in 1970 and you want to get the attention of a 10 yer old boy, I can say this from experience, this car will do the trick. There was nothing elase like a Superbird. But the purpose of its aerodynamic "show" was to make it go. Fast!. and go fast they did on the big oval tracks of NACSAR. too fast, as it turns out. the Superbird's aerodynamic technology allowed it to go faster than its tire technology could handle. Race rules were changed in 1971. NASCAR's response to the Superbird's creative aero tech would eventially lead to the Cant-tell-em-apart jellybean racercars of today.
Thanks to the folks at Pixar, 10-year olds in the seventies aren't the only ones who got to be wowed by the Superbird.
