Name another car in any race series that gets to (and usually from) the race under it’s own power and typically pulls
a covered wagon it’s own support trailer and keeps spare engines strapped into the co-pilot seat.
According to the “Official Rules” put forth by the Founding Fathers of this fine establishment: The primary rule of HCOTY is that the car has to, in some way, embody the true spirit of Hooniverse: responsible hooning, a genuine passion for cars, a love for the antiquated, the oddball or the obscure, and a healthy absence of common sense.
Despite a spectacular cartwheel, getting rear-ended and many other bumps, bruises and technical difficulties along the way, the Killer ZomBee refuses to quit! After many miles both on, and off the track, the British Leyland-that-could finally took home the coveted IOE trophy earlier this year.
In my humble opinion, the car is not what this HCOTY nomination stands for. The car is merely the vessel in which our very own Sparky and a fantastic group of car nuts lives out their dreams, one weekend at a time. Here’s to Team Killer Bees on a great year and many more to come!
Sparky was gracious enough to provide links to photos from all over the webs, enjoy!
Vote early and vote often!
*note: when I approached Sparky about nominating his car for HCOTY (and procuring some awesome photos from him) he was both flabbergasted and honored. However, unbeknownst to me he already had this post in the works at the time and it had no bearing on my initial decision to nominate him.
