Sort of reiterates to the world that Craig Breedlove has balls of brass... and that he might be the coolest man alive.
He's definitely in the running.I've seen this before,but it ties the past .present ,and future in very nicely.Can't get enough LSR action
Nice video! Great way to start the day!
I started a similar "BREAKING BARRIERS" thread last June ... but the single
video was broken up into six "Acts" and hosted on
I recently (this past weekend) bumped my thread ... but it still has only 4 replies & less than 400 views ... I'm hoping your TJJ Blog (& this resultant H.A.M.B. thread) gives the video much more visibility.
Gotta get to Bonnie! What a hoot!
Bonneville....The greatest place on the earth to be in a hot rod.
Great story Ryan...Thanks
Thank you,thank you ,thank you,what a great video!
This is a excellent insightful piece,I enjoyed it from beginning to end! HRP
Wow! What a great vedio, lots of racing history there. I'd never seen film of the Frank Lockhart wreck, the engine was later used in an INDY car, that was in the film also. Bob
The first part of your statement is 100% correct. The second... not so much. That's coming from personal experience.
Prove that man is never satisfied with mediocrity...... bigger, better, faster, the skies the limit!
Great video! Can never get enough of hot rod history. Thanks Ryan.
Alex: "We were so blessed that that small block [sbc] would go into a '32 roadster."
What did he say ?
He said "We were so blessed that that small block [sbc] would go into a '32 roadster."
Can we, once and for all, get over the SBC bullshit syndrome? Cool video, did not know about Frank Lockhart.
Thanks, Ryan. Check out this recent Hot Rod piece on Craig along with an interview...Cool indeed!
Well worth watching! All the stuff I've read about! Holy cow, and I didn't know Craig, built the Spirit of America, at his home! And, rolled it out in the street, too cool!
very cool! loved the early footage........ the vemon gt does nothing for me.
I wanted to interview Pete Farnsworth of the "Blue Flame " fame.
Seems like land speed racers have their own culture...
AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME!
Thanks for sharing!
Amazing video about the history of the men addicted to speed. Fantastic achievements, however I must admit I like the early days more with cars not controlled by computers and drivers who raced in style. Sir Malcolm Campbell with a white shirt and a perfectly done up tie in his race car, unbelievable nowadays.
That was time well spent.
A very, very good film! Thanks.
Great film!! God I love this stuff.
