LOL Not really, he got burned out on cars before i was born so we never had any cool cars growing up. He did teach me how to work on them. That was about it.

They came with the kit. I have the old Petty edition (this one) and the new Street burner kit and both have the same decals except the sponsors are different if you choose to do a race inspired version.
As far as the rims go according to this website ( http://aerowarriors.com/sss.html ) and my father who bought 2 of them new with Magnum 500's and also was a mechanic at a Dodge dealer, they were offered as an add on for extra money.

My dad had a Yellow Superbird, a Petty blue Superbird and a Roadrunner all in 1970 when he was working at Fisher Body and a Dodge dealer at the same time. Sadly he got divorced and the judge ordered him to sell off all 3 and give the money to his ex-wife along with the house they lived in at the time. The yellow bird had less than 2000 miles on it and the Blue one had 2 miles and was being stored on the dealers showroom floor till the divorce was over, she found out about it and told the judge.....

I did a build of my Dads B-5 Blue SuperBird.
My Lil Bro painted it and I put it all together..

Sharp car! Man how cool would it be if dad still had just one of them !!
Got the interior tub mounted to the body and the body to the chassis. Got to do the lettering on the tires, mirrors, BMF the door handles, mount the wheels and do some wash on the engine and cowl. After that its done! Man im tired, pics tomorrow bed time for now. Im sure my 2yr old will be up at 6am ready to go!! lol
