    That's a different engine. Looks a lot like an Offy, right?

    Fred Offenhauser worked for Harry Miller, and Miller went bankrupt in 1933. But the Offy was used for over 40 years to dominate American open-wheel racing, winning the Indy 500 an amazing 27 times.

    I loved the sound! The Doppler effect was spine tingling to me as a kid. ZZZZZZHHHHHHHUrrrrrrrrrr... :D

    I did not miss many Indy 500's. Dad was a fan and that's what hooked me on racing and sports cars. :)

    Saw most of them on live TV from 1967 to 1975. An amazing era.

    Gosh that looks familiar, but I can't place it.

    I can't wait for a car maven to identify it!
