Engine of the Week is presented by
Recently, the Piston Powered Autorama took place in Cleveland, OH, which is our backyard at Engine Builder Mag. We walked the show floor and came across this 1931 Chevy nicknamed SHO Bird. The custom-built car, owned by Rick Bird, had just come off winning the 2022 Don Ridler award at the Detroit Autorama, and you can easily see why. Built by Bruce Harvey and the team at Pro Comp Custom in Pittsburgh, PA, the ’31 Chevy features a twin-turbo 509 W BBC engine done by Shafiroff Racing Engines in Bohemia, NY.
