choice was easy; a small block Chevy.
A Velocity meets Detroit
BY BUDD DAVISSON
YOU DIDN’T EVEN HAVE to look up to know who was in the fly-by pattern at EAA
AirVenture Oshkosh 2009. If it sounded like Jeff Gordon running the back straight
at Talladega, it was Bill Mulrooney or Dan Horvath (maybe both) in their newly
completed Velocity. At least it looked like a Velocity. It was the 427-cubic-inch
Chevy V- 8 pushing it that made it sound anything but aeronautical.
