When Mickey Thompson was railing against the Offenhauser-powered establishment while building his Buick V8-powered Indy 500 car, he referred to the big four-bangers as "those torquing Offys," and the phrase just sticks in our minds. The Offy, like, totally pwned for decades, and we've seen a bunch of them all up close and personal here at Laguna Seca. They sound cool, and of course they go fast, but sometimes we just like to geek out on the metal of it all and stick our inquisitive snouts deep into some engine compartments.
