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….

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…

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THOSE CHARGERS DESTROYED IN DUKES OF HAZZARD?

Over seven seasons, the General Lee went airborne more than 150 times. Although it seemed fine on screen, the General rarely survived a jump. Warner Brothers totaled an average of two  Dodge Charger per episode. By the time filming ended, an estimated 300 Chargers had starred as the General Lee. What happened to all those cars? WB salvaged the most beat-up vehicles. Mechanics saved the doors, the rebel-flagged roof, and engine parts, which were cannibalized by future Generals. The car’s wrecked remains were then sent to a junkyard crusher, where…

How the aerodynamics of the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona compare to a modern Charger Hellcat

In the late 1960s, Dodge wanted to go fast and win races. Its Charger 500 wasn’t cutting it in the NASCAR field, though, so the automaker needed to make a change. You might think some light body changes would do the trick, but you’d be wrong. To turn the Charger into a slippery 200-mph machine, some iconic changes would need to come to fruition. Enter the Charger Daytona. Packing a massive nosecone and a skyscraper-grade rear wing, Dodge had a winning formula on its hands. How much of an aerodynamic…

This Hero Hit The 1 Million Mile Mark In His Porsche 356 After Daily Driving It For 40 Years

Most cars struggle to make it much beyond 100,000 miles in their lifetimes. Deferred maintenance, rust, and general lack of care eventually do them in. This Porsche 356 is different, though, because it has just passed the fabled million-miles-driven mark. Guy Newmark, owner of this blue 1964 Porsche 356C coupe, received the car as a graduation gift from his father, who bought the Porsche from its original owner mere months after it was built. For almost 50 years, he’s been driving “Blu” anywhere he needed to go, accumulating an astonishing number of…
