Say hello to the HPP Superbird
Styling from the seventies, modern muscle underneath… this is the new Superbird
Posted: 07 Mar 2012
Scary? A bit. Detroit, I mean, not the Superbird. Mainly, Motown is just sad, a city infected by desolation, a fossilised metropolis. As we photograph the Superbird under the unused monorail system, those who slip from the shadows don't demand our cash or car keys, but want to reminisce on Detroit's glory days, the muscle cars they owned back when things weren't screwed. Cubic inches and V8s - cars are the language of Detroit.
Heidacker, a lifelong Detroiter, feels the decay more than most. "We thought it was never going to stop," he says of Detroit's postwar pomp. "But now... hey, I still get excited about Detroit's future. You can't rule Detroit out."
