The Secret Story of Richard Petty’s Long Lost Plymouth Superbird

I’ve got a thing for Winged muscle cars: the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird, specifically. I’ve written quite a bit about them in articles here and in book form. And as you might imagine, to really understand any car, one must drive and/or ride in as many of them as possible. Not too long ago, I had the chance to go for a ride in a Superbird once owned and raced by Richard Petty. If you have ever seen a famous Superbird, you’ve seen this one….

Ten Things You Didn’t Know About The Dukes of Hazzard’s “General Lee”

It may be the most iconic car in TV history, but you almost definitely don’t know everything about the General Lee.

Chrysler’s Turbine Car Was One of Detroit’s Coolest Creation Ever

In 1964, Chrysler gave the world a glimpse of the future. The automaker built a fleet of turbine cars – automobiles with jet engines – and lent them out to members of the public. The fleet logged over a million miles; the exercise was a raging success. These turbine engines would run on any flammable liquid diesel, heating oil, kerosene, tequila, even Chanel No. 5. If the cars had been mass produced, today we might have cars that do not require petroleum-derived fuels. The engine was also much simpler than the…

Could the historic Daimler brand be revived as part of Jaguar Land Rover’s plans to expand its model range? As the resurgent Midland car-maker goes from strength to strength and seeks to double the number of vehicles it produces to more than a million a year, it could make sense.
