Last Call: Winged Heroes

There was a recent gathering of winged muscle machines. Dodge Daytonas and Plymouth Superbirds were rolled out of their garages. The sun looked good on their paint. The air was good on their aero. But most will be put back in storage and hidden away from the light.

Not this one though… this one gets the proper exercise.

    The aerodynamics apparently are not oprimized to provide downforce during circular motion.

    Back when you could buy a wing car in nice condition for less than the price of a new family car, I used to commute past a house that kept one in each bay of the 2 car garage, and another in the driveway. I wonder if the owner still has the collection or retired early.

    I’m not a fan of the wing, but that’s good use of the car. I’m all about taking care of the classics, but if you’re not driving them, they’re just art. The beauty is in the machine, and you don’t experience that unless you’re behind the wheel.

    My biggest issue with old Mopars is that so many of them are trailer queens. Fortunately, this guy gets it.

    Yup, looks about right to me.

    25 years ago (this month even if memory serves correct), a Mopar collector was thinning his herd a little so he could buy a Hemi Superbird. One of his cars was a gorgeous AAR Cuda, the other one he sold was a 440, 4 speed, 1968 Plymouth GTX. I wonder if that guy ever did buy that Superbird?
