    There's something about Bonneville and Kodachrome that just goes so well together.

    Incredible shots, breathless!!!!!!
     
  6. Incredable time! Incredable photos! A real 'Lets go to Bonneville and see how fast we can go' feel. The lines were short, the flames were rough, and the teams wore white.

    Is that the only color pic of the Multi Aldrich T?

    (Prior to its rediscovery a few years ago?)

    Thanks for posting these JB.
    I love this series of photos, just priceless!
    Bonneville is definitely a "bucket list" trip for me.

    She looks like she's sending a text on an Iphone or something. And that T looks like its 30 years too late to the show! Very cool pics.
     
  26. Right on, really cool to be able to see these and to somehow participate even if its only with a simple support comment. Thank you Jay.

    This is a picture taken in the late fifty's on the salt. What I like most about it is that it is the same car as pictured on the left after 60 years of evolution. Maybe the oldest car still running bwgreen.jpg .
