    Bring 45 sunscreen, a cooler of food/ fruit, & LOTS of water!

    Also, try to avoid loose shorts & no underwear, like the Canadian scribe that I saw walking bow-legged in '05! Funniest thaing I saw that year, but he sure learned about UV reflection. :D

    My first time, too. Will be there Sunday - Tuesday with my son. Really looking forward to this.
     
  3. Dad and I will be there for our first time. He is driving out from Vermont in his roadster. And I'm meeting him in Denver so we can roll onto the salt for the first time together.:eek:
    He hasn't decided on rollingstock yet.

    I'll be thre for sure, probably driving my Deuce Tudor. I reckon I'll be helping the Bean Bandits (mostly just staying out of the way) a lot of the time.

    Hey Mike,
    Looks like we'll be neighbors again this year. I'm planning on driving my roadster out and back. My new engine needs a good break-in run. The Bone's have a newer and hotter flatty for this years attempt.
    See you in a couple'a weeks.

    How did he get that number? As far as I know that number has been used by Seth Hammond for 20+ years.

    Look for the pasty white, bald headed, sun burned Canadian dying in the heat. That'll be me.

    First timer, trying to learn all I can before I go, and looking forward to meeting as many of you as I can.

    This streamliner #1233 is one of "the ol' timers" we're bringing out! It hasn't been to speedweek in 10 years. We completely rebuilt/retrofitted it over the winter, and got a couple of "shakedowns" in at El Mirage. Now we are ready for Bonneville!

    Look for Fabian, me, and the rest of the Bean Bandits team and race cars in the pits, starting line, and record impound throughout the week! Stop by and say hello!
