I could never appreciate those big spoilers. IMHO, they ruin the appearance. Rarely do those cars that have them go fast enough to benefit from them.

I really like everything else about the cars.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

That particular vehicle had the wing for actual aerodynamic purposes rather than being a silly styling affectation like the clothes racks hanging from the trunks of so many recent ricers. The Dodge Daytona/Superbee was a limited production vehicle produced solely for the purpose of NASCAR racing.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Built back when stock car racing used actual stock cars.

Exactly! OTOH, since the drivers are all driving the same car (with difference stickers) current Stock Car racing really is a test of Drivers, not hardware.

I always thought those cars were butt ugly, even when they first came out.
I know they were fast, but they look awful, to me.

Ditto, though as I mentioned above, the sheetmetal on this version of the Roadrunner/Superbee was created solely for the purpose of racing aerodynamics and was not a styling exercise at all.

Never, never, not ever liked the Super Bee.

Not for a second.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Kid had one in high school. I worked fast food with him. One night after work did multiple passes on a back hiway at 120 mph plus. The car floated more than drove. Pretty sure he sold it for $1600.
