    I found this:
    Laurie Bird was a cute and charming actress who appeared in only three pictures during her regrettably short-lived career. Bird was born on September 26, 1953 in Long Island, New York. Laurie was working as a model when she was chosen by director Monte Hellman from nearly 500 women to portray the Girl in "Two-Lane Blacktop." Bird gave a fine and impressively natural performance in her film debut as the chatty and rootless hippie wanderer the Girl in Hellman's extraordinary road movie masterpiece. She was likewise excellent as Harry Dean Stanton's snippy young wife Dody Burke White in Hellman's bleakly fascinating character study "Cockfighter." Following her small role as Paul Simon's L.A. girlfriend in Woody Allen's "Annie Hall," Laurie quit acting altogether and became a photographer. Bird committed suicide in boyfriend Art Garfunkel's Manhattan penthouse at the tragically young age of 25 on June 15, 1979. Garfunkel dedicated his album "Scissors Cut" to Laurie. The album features a partial photograph of Laurie Bird on its back cover

    Thats not a spare, the actual car ran a tunnel ram and you could see them through the windshield. So it was used as a prop so car nuts like us could pick at all the incorrect details.

    Good question though!

    The guy that wrote the story(Two lane blacktop) lived up the street from me when I was a kid. To see him you would never guess, he was kind of a wierd old hippie dude.

    No more 427 although the owner still has it. He did however sell the fuel injection which he said was a edelbrock sysem. The car was raced through the 70's and ran solid mid 10's.

    He also still has this chevy truck. It is in the exact condition that it was in back then
