    Sort of reiterates to the world that Craig Breedlove has balls of brass... and that he might be the coolest man alive.

    Nice video! Great way to start the day!
     
  6. @Ryan -

    Great stuff!

    I started a similar "BREAKING BARRIERS" thread last June ... but the single vimeo logo.png video was broken up into six "Acts" and hosted on YouTube logo.JPG :

    Breaking Barriers Act 2 screen shot.JPG

    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.

    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.

    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.

  19. 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!
     
  21. 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.
