Dan, thanks for the great photos, you have allowed me to "attend" some great events.
I see in the news that the worlds fasted woman crashed and died trying to beat he previous record.
You're very welcome @TrailerTrashToo - thanks for attending and your comments! That is very true @Old wolf -
"Race car driver Jessi Combs, known as the 'fastest woman on four wheels,' dies while trying to beat record. In October, Combs set a new top speed of 483.2 mph in a shakedown run. On Tuesday, she was attempting to go faster in the Alvord Desert in southeast Oregon when she crashed. She was 39."
The Texas Justice 7 1927 Model T based car with its 528 CI Hemi.
Eddies Chop Shop Streamliner
THE BEST photos as usual. I've never been there but you get the feeling of being there through these photos. The smells, the textures...all come through. Pure art. Thanks!
You're welcome and thanks @Barn Hunter. I do hope you get to go some time.
Two cars I'd like to know more about an see more photos! Thank you to everyone that posted photos. Bob
Hopefully someone will know more about those two @The37Kid. Thanks for dropping by
I heard taht this iconic sign was taken down a few days after I shot this. Not sure if it is true or why.
Again, awesome pictures. Thanks
Beautiful work Dan! Thanks for sharing. Seeing this moved Bonneville up a slot on my bucket list.
Probably because idiots covered it with graffiti.
You're welcome and thanks @WB69 and @Hot Rods Ta Hell. It took me years to get to it but it did not disappoint. Thanks @Stan Back - although I don't know if that was the reason. It seemed the same as the last few times I saw it.
Sign was taken down and given to the SCTA so the BLM could put up a new one from what I've read.
1946 Hudson, 1956 Hudson engine - still a flathead 6. I had no idea anyone was making them that late.
Ed Umland of Sacramento owner of "Eddie's Chop Shop" hand built streamliner ran 410 mph last year. Turned out this year because of the bad course. He is the real deal, always like to see him do well.
Both of those videos are awesome @mctim64! Do you know how fast the Hudson ran?
Sorry, I do not. I just checked on the SCTA page and the results are only partially up.
Thanks again @mctim64 and thanks for the picture of his car @Ricks Garage
Another mean looking Studebaker that in the past, according to the text on the driver's side window, has hit 335 mph before.
Thanks for the pics Dan , I almost felt I was there with the quality of you pics. Awesome!!!!
I believe he was looking for @ $15,000
45,000 if I recall correctly
Next best thing to being there,pressing the “ like them all” key.
Thanks for being the eyes for those not there Dan.
