    Made it home yesterday.....Saw a few old Hambers and a few new.First time on salt and yes we ended up finding a motel room after the destruction of tents and pop ups.
    Total miles traveled in the Panel from my shop door to shop door 3975. She ran flawless only trouble lost a eletric fan in Iowa thanks to it quitting next to a parts store. 1 hour and a fan change and we back on our way.
    Great Times and Great event I will be back.

    My favorite shot of the weekend of my rig.....

    Made it home alive. Fun trip as expected. Bailed out early this year. Met awesome folks along the way.

    Tman, we will meet somewhere, sometime.

    TriumphTerror, I saw you out there all mudded up. Sorry, I didn't push.

    mctim64, I saw your trucks and smiled. Beauties.

    JustinB, That's why you should run a flatty. I'm joking of course. Hats off to all the thrashers like you out there.

    Well, after a month of thrashing on the car, we finally made it up there Saturday. Breezed through tech Sunday. Made some adjustments on Monday & had 3 great runs on Tuesday.:)


    I called my buddy Paul N. from the end of the track , who said it would blow on the first run.


    I will post more info on my thread " The Road to Bonneville" about the rest of the trip.

    Way to go Rockey! The car looks first rate!!
    Sorry, I never introduced myself. You guys looked pretty busy out there.
  10. It was good to finally meet you and you and you too.

    Sorry I missed you.

    After a rollicking 'boys own' adventure to get there, Gary & the crew got the car thru tech an onto the track on Sunday arvo.

    In mile 3 about about 2 mph above the record the engine rattled badly. Dropped a valve and all the coolant came out the exhaust pipes. So they packed up and headed home.

    I feel for them, but as 'the boss' ssaid, "That's motor racing".
