Absolutely Fantastic Photos! Thanks Mark, Mark's Grandfather & Ryan.

The photos were actually taken in 1951. The reason I know this is the So-Cal belly tank is there instead of the streamliner which had been destroyed at Daytona in Feb '51, Bill Niekamp roadster, Ak Miller's "Miller's Missile", Fred Carrillo's #17 lakes roadster are there & finally Bob Hamke's T roadster from Indy, which was bought by HAMBer trichop and passed on to Bob's son Robert who is restoring it to how it was raced at Bonneville 1951.


gauges are '49 Frazer.


Body is made of roadster pickup front half and T coupe rear.

History.
It's this sense of history I feel everytime I step on the salt. That feeling is unmatched by any other place I've ever been.
In the Worlds Fastest Indian whe Bert Munro steps out and says "This is hallowed ground I tell ya, - Hallowed ground." You know EXACTLY what he means.

Gawdamn.

I love it when someone's private shots appear and it has some new pics of ol' 777.

Great history and doesn't it make you wish you could stick your head into the pic and look around?
