Good work, looks great. Keep after it.
Holy Crap this build is cool. Somehow just found this thread. True craftsmanship.
OH MY GOD!!!! WOW<<<<<<<<
Good luck on the Beach! You have built a very nice piece of Art!.... now go enjoy it!
What a great build! I would love to do something like this some day. Can't wait to see it on the sand!
Man, outrageous! Looks awesome and I love all the fab work.
Thanks a lot!
How in the world did I miss this? AWESOME!
some cool pics of Pendine Sands Race 2014 and my lakester
Unfortunately, I broke the gear box main shaft 1day before the Pendine Race. So I have not been able to run.... just pushed by my friends 27 roadster......
I will work on it this winter to be ready for the next edition. So I search a 40's Ford gear box (with the side shift lever) to swap my french ford gear box....
Oh wow, I just saw this build, very impressive!
A homebuilt quickchange?! Well, looks like I have some research to do!
SO BAD ASS!!!!!
To bad you're so far away, I have a 40's three speed trans with the side shifter that I'm not going to use. By the way, love the pics and even though you were pushed and towed it looks really sweet! Good luck on next year.
Thanks for your offer! but It is true that you live a little too far!!!!
Sorry to hear of your misfortune one day before races!!! Was looking forward to hear speed you would achieve.
Nice build up and will look for further updates on changes and next years race,.
How did I miss this?,,,amazing car. HRP
Turned out SUPER...
Ever feel like the world is passing you by.....Or you're walking through the forrest and you can't see the trees??
Glad I found this thread. Great work!
Great photos Chris,the Lakester looks incredible.I hope we can get down to Brittany on our trip to catch up.
We had a great time at the Hayride with you and the boys.
Very very nice as a fast Lakester owner myself I know how much work you put into the car. Just getting her out into the day light is a huge step once you get the gear box issues sorted your going to have a ball driving the car.
Don't know how I've missed this for so long. Very cool.
Are you in the mustard business???
Sorry I could not resist.
Beautiful job, mon ami! That is nothing short of amazing!
Fantastic - I've been admiring your work for a while now!
Sorry to hear about your gearbox issues. If SCTA doesn't allow it, and you want something more than Pendine, you could always ship it over to South Africa for Kalahari Desert Speedweek at Hakskeenpan (same place BloodhoundSSC will be shooting for 1000mph!)
Rand to Euro at around 14:1 might make this a whole lot more financially viable than you might think
Thanks Chris! If you arn't too busy, you are welcome to my home !
Wow! Is all I can say! Truly incredible build. Sorry to see the tranny broke but I'm sure you get that fixed up in no time! What is next?
Yesterday I happen to be looking for some specific pictures of the Eddie Miller Streamliner (since I'm sort of obsessed with it) and I stumbled on a French thread that you posted this on. Couldn't read a word (HAHA), but MAN O MAN!!! I'm so glad to see you posted it here. SOOO bad ass! Fantastic job! I'm blown away.
What are you doing with the car now?
Congratulations on a great build.
