1970 Superbird / 440 Super Commando
Written by James Pulli.
There I was, loving life, and thinking it just couldn't get any better. I mean, I'm in Vegas with Greg surrounded by as many Mopars that we could shake a dip-stick at. The sights, the sounds, the smells, and all the debauchery that goes with Las Vegas. But wait, is that a 70 Superbird in bright green up ahead?? My friends, just between you and me, the site of this car stimulates the same nerve endings I felt the first time I found my brother's secret magazine stash under his bed... I don't know if it's that impressive rear wing or that intimidating nose up front, but this car is all about THRILLS and CHILLS !! Then there's the car's owner Bill. My meeting Bill was more than a coincidence I'm sure. To make a very long story very short, we discovered that we lived close to each other, both ride Ducati's (Bill's also a bike restorer and mechanic by trade, VERY good to know if you ride a 10 year old Duc!), and to top it all off, I joined his classic rock band! Bill's a kick-ass guitarist to boot. Nice guy too, turns out his lady was handed the keys to his first musclecar, a 70 purple Cuda. A super car to a super lady! (You Rock Laurie !!). Listen to Bill's interview to hear about some very interesting features with his Bird. If you ever get the chance, buy Bill a beer and ask him about sliding towards a cop sideways through an intersection in that purple Cuda. Trust me, you'll wet your pants laughing. Thanks Bill!
