- T​he car in question.

W​hat can you use a Plymouth Superbird for?

O​ver the last months I made a poll series which showed that the Superbird is the most popular American classic. So what can you actually use it for?

I​ will demonstrate all of the Plymouth's uses with beautifully worked out drawings.


I​ don't think it will surprise anyone that the Superbird has an engine and can be driven around. So driving to a store is no problem for it. However, unlike most sporty cars it doesn't stop being useful when you've reached the parking lot. You can't only put small stuff in your trunk, you can also transport really big things like a 6 seater sofa, the spoiler stabilizes that so it doesn't fall off the roof like it would on a usual car.

D​riving to the laundromat

L​aundromats are almost a thing of the past, they hardly exist today. And I exactly know the reason for that. When you take your laundry out of the washing machine there, you have to put it into the clothes dryer, which costs time and money, at home you can just put it on the clothes line. The Plymouth Superbird however solves this issue, as you can stretch a clothes line between its front and the high spoiler. On your drive home the clothes will get completely dry, which saves you money and time.


T​his is not a good idea when you're currently transporting a sofa or drying your laundry, but once you brought all of your stuff home, the Superbird is of course very good at racing. The Dodge Charger Daytona, which is basically the same car, was the first car to break the 200 mph mark on a closed track in 1969. However, the Dodge does not have the next two advantages.

B​ird watching

W​hen the race is won and you want to spend some time in the nature, the Plymouth is perfect for watching birds in the forest. The birds will be attracted by Roadrunner, who's painted on both sides of the rear spoiler. You can then sit on it and watch the birds as they fly towards you.

T​aking a quick note

T​his is a common situation: You get out of your car, lock it and suddenly remember something you have to write down so you don't forget it again. Since you literally can't be asked to unlock the car again and only have a black pen with you, you are now in trouble if you don't have a black car, because if you accidentally write over the edge of the paper you'll have a black stripe on the paint of your car. However, the Plymouth has two black boxes around its pop-up headlights, which you can use as an underlay in this everyday situation, so it won't damage the car if you write over the edge of the paper.

I​ think these five points explain perfectly well why the Superbird is the most popular classic American car, since no other car ever made can give you all of these important advantages.
