    No you did not. You saw Danny break Charles Nearburg's record in AA/FS. If Mick had set a record it would have been in AA/BFS. Since his was blown when it went 400 one way. Danny was not blown. Mick didn't set the record since he broke.

    I hope Danny does well on this. It might be a hard sell and have to find the right person that wants it. It would be nice to see someone get it and run it again. It's a good looking streamliner. Wishing him good luck.

    Here's when it first rolled-out, with some shots of the impressive trailer. 20140710_111139.jpg 20140710_111253.jpg 20140710_111303.jpg 20140710_111403.jpg 20140710_111435.jpg 20140710_111459.jpg 20140710_111627.jpg 20140710_112445.jpg 20140710_113211.jpg 20140710_113350.jpg 20140710_113356.jpg 20140710_113507.jpg 20140710_114939.jpg 20140710_115732.jpg

    A lot of money, and in my opinion, worth it, if nothing else as a tribute to the car and the family. Bill Rinaldi

    If the salt was good this car meets all SCTA rules for the class and can run now. I would hire Danny and at minimum his engine guy Richard Catton if running was my desire. However since the engines are A-Fuel type NHRA engines I’m sure some one else could tune them to blow up just past the first 1/4 mile from the starting line:rolleyes:.
    It takes a crew to run one of these and they need know their job. I’m sure it will be a museum piece for now.

    Streamliners are pretty personal things, If I bought it and ran it, It would still be Danny's car. The buyer bought it for the story, I bet. The father and son connection. And Micky is still famous for going 400 first, Wheel driven. But how many of you remember who first went 500 wheel driven? Only happened in 2018. Also a family car with decades of history. Little press interest. No adoration. Not to take away from Danny. just to point out an anomaly.

    For a record Danny has the fastest piston engine car in the book. For one way speeds or exit speeds no, But they don't count.

    Listen to those hemi's sing their song, nothing but nothing has the sound of a hemi, built or stock.
    Amazing Engineer feat for both I & II.

    Danny could hold the unblown record for quite a while depending on the salt conditions. I'm sure George would like his name on the top in the record book and it's just a matter of time. It was fun watching the Poteet crew changing engines every day when Danny had qualified using only 1 valve spring for the return run.
    Those who go there know what any record takes and the "Black" hat chapter of the 200 MPH club has a very few members at this time.
    Dave is the fastest but some just have a hard time with it being a vehicle with no pistons and that's their problem not mine.

    Yes. Turbinator is the fastest wheel driven car. But it has a helicopter engine

    George isn't the only one that want's to be on top. Flashpoint will be back. Faster and more shiny side up than before.

    Nope.
     
  24. I was at the auction, they had a great display all week. Danny hung out around the car and he talked, shook hands and had photos taken. when the car on the trailer pulled by the truck was on the block the story was told. it was a really nice presentation. the bidding slowed down in the 4's and they added the trailer, then the truck. auctioneer worked the final two bidders patiently, as the bids increased slowly between, as pointed out by the auctioneer, a Canadian and an American. crowd cheered and chanted as the future home of the car crossed back and forth across the border. fun to watch and I hope the best for the new owner.

    Truckedup;;;Read the post. Danny has the piston fastest record as I clearly stated in my previous answer to your question. Not George. Turbinator is the fastest wheel driven, Danny is the fastest piston (16 of them) car. Easy peasy.

    That was the original Challenger. This is the car that was replacing it.
