Biggest land yacht ever was my brother's friends 1973 Olds Delta 88 station wagon. My brother had a blue 69 GTO 400 that was a bit of a dog. His friend Murray had a 68 Super Bee 383 four speed. That car is ingrained in my head. Bronze with a white tail stripe and white interior. You would think two young guys with muscle cars might have a friendly race or two. Zilch...nada...nothing. They were too scared to crack the secondaries on the carbs. Every time Murray backed the Super Bee out of our driveway I would motion with my arms and scream "lite em up! All to no avail...I did hear a slight chirp once from the Super Bee but I think he just slipped up a little bit on the clutch. It was the most un abused Super Bee in existence. I was under some delusional dream that I could deliver news papers or something and buy the Super bee. Reality is the cruelest dream and one fine summer day in 73 Murray rolls up in a shiny new 73 Olds Delta 88 wagon. I think I threw up in my mouth. This car was so heavy I thought the 15 inch tires would pop. My dream car was traded in and this big ass turd of a car took it's place. I was devastated. I spent many hours in the back seat of that bee while my brother and his buddy cruised the streets looking for ladies...I didn't care when the Goat was sold. Nice looking car and the front bumper was very cool but I never got attached to it. I have never seen a similar color combo Super Bee at car shows. I can still hear that whine of the four speed Super Bee trans in my head....
