Eager to hit the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats in something with a little more flare than a rocket with wheels? Then get your hands on this 1952 Buick Super Riviera that goes by the name “Bombshell Betty.” Designed and built by Jeff Brock, this 6-time land speed record holder is chopped and decked raw steel with a Buick Roadmaster 320 cubic inch straight eight. On its last trip to the Salt Flats, “Bombshell Betty” set a new record, topping out at 165.735 mph before being retired. But why Bombshell you ask. Take a close look at the scoop feeding the dual carbs. Got it? Good. Here’s a clip of your new car in action:
