Kenny Black's 1972 Mag with big Ford power before & after a race, back then the little Volvo speedmaster drive's did not hold up well to big power.

This boat has been for sale in Michigan for quite a while.......it has the same looking grab rail.

Do you think it's Lil' Rhino?.........

When you say big Ford power do you mean 427 side oilers?

Most of the Magnum's that raced here all had the [chicken bar's as they were called] for support, the boat in that pic was the old Bonanza, [brown&white] before that I think it was green & white and call Grasshopper. Lil Rhino was lost in a major fire that destroyed many of the early great race boat's, Lil Rhino then became a Mirage 29ss.
