Automotif LVI...

1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird: One of the most outrageous things to ever roll off a Detroit production line, done solely to homologate the aero aids for NASCAR competition.

(Interestingly, while a lot of folks know about the first round of NASCAR aero cars that produced the Superbird, Charger Daytona, Torino Talladega, and Cyclone Spoiler, not as many know about the second bout of homologation specials that occurred some fifteen years later and produced the Monte Carlo Aerocoupe and Grand Prix 2+2 in response to the aggressively aerodynamic '83-'88 T-Birds.)
