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. ... index.html

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?

Dick Landy Industries 484CI Hemi Engine Rebuild ... index.html

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?
