My tribute to Bonneville .....

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by neverdun, Apr 21, 2012.

  1. I got this '40 ford in January and I didn't want to build another gasser or restore it. I went to Bonneville last summer so I thought what about a Bonneville racer from the sixties. I know very few '40 fords were actually raced there but that didn't stop me. It's not done yet but here you go.

    It looks really good! You have nailed it , a couple of repop early participant window decals would be a nice addition.

    Would like to see it photo shopped with American racing salt flat wheels. I do like your style though. Nice ride. Enjoy

    Just in case someone tries telling you they didn't race '40 coupes at Bonneville. :)

    Don't look much like Bonneville to me. I might by El Mirage. But Jerry Helwig ran a very nice chopped 40 coupe on the salt for years Flames and a flathead. To cool.
