Good Guys 2017 Autumn Get Together Pleasanton Ca

Good Guys 2017 Autumn Get Together features a running display of Chevrolet’s newest and most powerful big block ever!

The most powerful engine ever produced and sold in a crate was displayed on a running test bed by Chevrolet Dublin (California) The 572 cubic inch (that’s 9.4 liters!!!) monolith outputs 740 horsepower from the factory. The ZZ572/720R is ready to race or drag. Normally aspirated by an 1,150 cfm Dominator carburettor, this engine is pure power. Chevrolet promotes the benefit of this engine as being totally ready, right out of the crate. Add a fuel pump and a starter and you are ready to race or hit the 1/4 mile doing 9 second brackets.

By contrast, a flathead (sidevalve) V8 from the early 1950s is offered for sale at the swapmeet in the same display. We’ve come a long way from the days of 85hp at the factory.

Sidevalve or flathead V8 at the swapmeet, fully restored and with 4 carburettors and new Edelbrock aluminum alloy heads.

Good-Guys events take a full day to visit the displays and see the events. I suggest two full days! One day just to sift through the swapmeet and the other to see the events and displays.
