This is my favorite car of all time. Thank you for the excellent article and pictures. I was at the 72 Watkins Glen can am and it was great to see their final 1-2 finish.

Great feature on one of my favorite cars. However, I believe the 787 bhp engine refers to a special "big block" built for the Riverside CanAm. This was a 565 cubic inch engine with a bore and stroke of 4.50x4.44 inches. This was a special qualifying engine used by Denis Hulme. The output was quoted as 787 bhp at 6400 rpm and 740 ft/lbs at 4400 rpm. This engine was described in the book "Can-Am" written by Pete Lyons in 1995.

I absolutely love the M20's. Perhaps my favorite car of all time but the pictures do not do it justice. Could you post some pictures of it on the racetrack.

PS The very last Mclaren 1-2 finish in the canam was at Watkins Glen in 1972 when Hulme and Revson finished ahead of (well ahead of actually) the 917/10k of Follmer. This was a big blow to Porsche as they had brought all their management and the german media to the event only to see their car get trounced. If I'm not mistaken event Francios Cevert in the year old M8F finsihed ahead of Follmer.
