How Many Buzzards Does It Take To Put A Spark Plug Into A Bonneville Engine?
The answer maybe in these pictures.
Buzzards Racing is returning to Bonneville Speed Week 2012 with a new quest. They are addressing "The Need For Speed" by putting a full race small block Chevy into the '34 coupe. It is a 454 cu.in. SBC, Dart engine built by Larry Minor of sand drag racing fame. He doesn't claim Buzzards, but one of them calls him "kin folk". The engine has plenty of hp to chase the 245 mph record. It has been said that, that is faster than any Buzzard should be trusted. It is also rumored that the back up engine is an old school supercharged hemi. What happened to the old Buzzards with record setting flathead engines?
