200 mph $200,000 Park Bench?

50th Aero Car Anniversary Wellborn Muscle Car Museum

We have attended a lot of car shows and seen some pretty wild cars and other sites. When we attended the 50th Aero Car Anniversary at the Wellborn Museum we saw a 200 mph $200,000 four-wheeled park bench! Not only that, it had three lovely ladies perched on it looking every bit like it was 1970.

These ladies are well into the 1970s vibe. The event was held in October and participants were encouraged to dress in early 1970s attire.

The event was a gathering of over 200 special factory built aero cars designed to race on NASCAR’s high banked superspeedways in 1969 and 1970. This winged 1970 Plymouth Superbird, along with the other cars at the show, were capable of 200 mph in race trim. Today, buyers will often pay $200,000 or more for show quality street versions.

This is a 200 mph, $200,000 park bench. How many do you want?

The history nor the value of these rare cars kept any of the owners from enjoying their cars at the event held in Alexander City AL and at the Talladega Super Speedway in October of 2019.

Back in the day, there were a lot of pretty girls who found their way to perch on top of a supercar wing but I don’t recall any flower children guys hanging on to the back.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
