Looks to me like the J-58 start cart for the SR-71. Used two Buick V-8 engines

There were two. TF33 engines is the only one left. It used to be that they had a Vulcan Canon as opposed to 4 .50s too.

Sticking with the B-52 theme. What was the NB-52E, and what did it do that made it interesting?

The NB-52E was kept by Boeing, and added canards and a Load Alleviation and Mode Stabilization system. On one test flight it flew 10 knots past the never exceed speed with no problems, because the system removed so much load from the airframe. Data from the tests eventually was used in fly by wire systems.
