For those of us following along, Bird's affinity for his Pat Musi 959 engine has been no secret. However, a surprising turn of events unfolded when Bird himself put up an ad on Facebook Marketplace, offering his cherished engine for a cool $65,000. Naturally, this revelation has sparked a flurry of speculation and curiosity within the racing community.

So, why the sudden departure from the tried and tested Pat Musi 959 powerhouse? Well, the theories are aplenty. Some folks speculate that Bird might be gearing up for a new venture, perhaps exploring fresh combinations or even considering a switch to a Charlie Buck designed and crafted 959 engine. Given Bird's longstanding association with Buck Racing Engines, such speculations are not unfounded.

But wait, the plot thickens. Could Bird be eyeing a different power adder altogether? Maybe a procharger or a screw blower? The recent shift of Kai to a screw blower setup certainly adds fuel to the fire, igniting imaginations with possibilities. While a turbocharged setup might seem unlikely, in this ever-evolving landscape of street racing, nothing is off the table.

Bird's racing journey spans over three decades, a testament to his enduring passion and unwavering commitment. Nitrous has been his trusted ally throughout, standing by him through the highs and lows of his illustrious career. Yet, the prospect of a new combination, a departure from the familiar, beckons like an irresistible challenge.

Rumors abound of a new car in the works, meticulously crafted for the unforgiving terrain of No Prep Kings. But Bird, true to his nature, refuses to rest on past laurels, embracing change with characteristic fervor.
