       Front Cover:

       John Balow of Muscle Car Restorations restored this FY1 yellow Superbird, which was seen during the reconstruction of Bristol Motor Speedway. It was formerly a pace car at a short track and is powered by the 440 U-code engine.


       The reason the cars were built was to get this driver, Richard Petty, back into a Plymouth. Seen here at the fall race in Talladega, King Richard would have certainly won the World Championship save for a devastating and race-missing accident at Darlington in mid-season.

       Title Page:

       The 1970 Plymouth Superbird was considered the most flamboyant Road Runner of them all when the dust finally settled on the model’s tenure in 1980. (Steve Netkow Photo)

       Table of Contents:

       A group of Superbirds and Charger Daytonas roll down to the front stretch. They returned to the storied banking of Talladega in 2015 for a special reunion, one of a number of events that focus on these unique cars.
