Kit and Stevanie have been having a blast taking the Superbird to local shows and driving it from Stevanie’s work where it’s stored temporarily to its main storage residence. It is exciting to experience this amazing adventure. The Bird s a magnet for kids who see it as “Strip Weather’s” car from the Cars movies, car fans, and folks who have never seen anything like it.
With excellent assistance from Steve and Colleen Miles at North American Muscle Cars, the major kinks have been worked out, several of which were related to having modern equipment installed in a vintage mopar, and getting it built in a rush to meet the contest deadline. A few things include issues with the battery, starter, headlights, fuel injector, windows, and no horn installed. It’s taken since Feb. to get it safe and reliable.
Our Facebook pages have up-to-date pics including Kit wearing the great cowboy hat like Richard Petty wears and that is signed! by The King, and pictures with the two awards won. “Best In Class” at the 2018 Portland Roadster Show and “1970’s Favorite” at the 2018 Oregon City Auto Show.
