David Freiburger's 1970 Dodge Super Bee Unearthed - Rumble Bee Revival
A Former Hot Rod Magazine Project Car Gets Unburied After 11 Years Of Neglect.

This is a shocking moment for me and for the diehard readers who recall this car and have asked for 11 years-with varying levels of deference or derision-if I will ever finish it. After all, it was my first car, I've now owned it for exactly 27 years, and in the '90s it was a HOT ROD magazine project that got stuffed with a Dick Landy 484ci Hemi. Why would I abandon it?

If you read our "Rehashed Hemi" story last month, you endured whining about how only 599 hp and 578 lb-ft from our Hemi just wasn't that great. Now our whimpering is vindicated. In this story we'll kick the torque curve in the shorts, gaining 200 lb-ft at 3,600 rpm compared with the original setup. OK, so it was really an improvement of 192 lb-ft, but it's so stupidly better that who's gonna argue?
