    Greetings from South Dakota,

    New to the site, and I am enjoying all the great discussions thus far.A wealth of knowledge here. This is my 1st time posting thank you.

    Was hoping I could get some help with a unique BMW Veritas Mystery.

    I was contacted yesterday by a gentleman from Wisconsin who was looking for some information on his late friends 1949 BMW Veritas RS, that he worked with Wayne Bolt of Wisconsin. Now this was not your ordinary Veritas Roadster RS in 1965 this was a small Block gaser/dragster holding a “World Record”. Yeaaaa, I was thinking the same thing, a dragster come on, but then the photos arrived by the email and sure as shit There she was a real life vintage 60’s era blown Veritas.

    I was hoping to help the gentleman and the late “Wayne Bolt’s Family” find out a little more info on the fate on this Post War aluminum bodied roadster. They were unsure of were it ever ended up! Or if by chance there are more vintage photos of the Wisconsin Veritas

    A good mystery nothing more nothing less

    Thanks in advance

  5. Do you know what it ran?
    N.H.R.A.
    A.H.R.A.
    I.H.R.A.
    N.A.S.CA.R. drags
    Knowing this would really help find some history.
