My T and A. The T has a build thread here, the A I just got a couple of weeks ago. Locked up in a garage for 46 years.
Gets a little breezy above 200
Topless at Bonneville and topless at the drag strip.
Several years ago this roadster started my buddy and myself on the journey to build our own Bonneville roadster and go out to the “great white dyno” and enjoy the fun and beauty of the salt flats. Thanks for the inspiration
your right , it does get windy above 200.
Wow! Very kind words. Thank you very much! Beautiful roadster you have as well.
My partner and I had won NHRA,IHRA and USAC events and then one day his doctors told him that he had cancer and his odds were around 25%. After two years and two bouts of chemo and radiation treatments things started to look up. I bought him a calendar that year for Christmas with different forms of Motorsports. One of the months had a picture of your roadster on the salt and I wrote a note to him that we were going to go bonnieville and race one day. Well he got better and the next year we started building that orange 32 roadster and the first year we took our roadster to bonnieville and got into line to make our first pass your roadster was in the other lane. That calendar and a picture of us standing next to your roadster is hanging in our shop along with that note to him to get well and we’d go racing again. You never know when or how you can help someone thru tough times. Thanks
Read the message on the hood of our roadster about cancer
Thought I’d add photos of the calendar and us seeing and standing with the car that inspired our journey thanks todd
Inspirational story! It's things like this that make me love our sport/hobby. Bonneville is a great place, brings people together.
Until you’ve seen the sunrise on the flats you don’t know what a beautiful place it is!! Love your roadster plus it’s a flathead
Touching story, John. I had to have my wife read your post. It means a lot. Not quite sure what to say, other than thank you for sharing. Also I agree, no better place to watch a sunrise.
