  • Looking for a specific TW article about a C/K at Bonneville

    Sometime back in the 90's, a fellow ran a C/K at Bonneville with a really small Stude V8. I can not find this article in my pile 'o TW's. I remember there was a cover shot of the car (but maybe I am wrong about that) and that the group forgot to bring their air dam and had to make one out of some plastic trash cans.

    Does anyone remember the article and when it was published?

    Thanks,

    Bob

      I just pulled that issue out and can confirm that'd be the one Bob is describing. There is a blurb in the story (on page 8) about the missing air dam. The car did indeed have a small cube Stude that year- to the tune of 183 c.i.d.!!!

        Cool! Thanks for the info. I will be looking that up as soon as I get home. We've been trying to figure out if our engine (181.9 CID) was smaller than that one. As I recall, they sleeved it down to that displacement whereas we destroked the crank.
