Thanks for some more outstanding pics Dan.
You're welcome Snowman and Dave.
The retro and normal versions of the same photo
Wonderful pictures!! I have to go someday! Thanks! Lippy
As usual Dan, great pictures!!!!! Glad you finally got to go to Speed Week, it is truly a "bucket list" event isn't it! Bill
You're welcome and thanks @lippy, @kratebike and @Bill Rinaldi. Bill it truly was, but I don't feel like I really concurred it so I think I definitely need to go again.
This one started out as a '37 Chevy, or at least the body shell is from one
McFaddin & Loyd ran as fast as 220.673
any pics of record breaking 911 roadster / Dave Davidson?
Thanks for the wonderful pictures. Do you have any information about this coupe? I saw some other pics of it and it has a Wyoming plate from my county. I have never seen this car in town and was wondering if I might know him. Will see you at the Hill climb in a couple of weeks!!
@Jalopy Joker - I will check and see if I do have any of that Porsche. John @Binger) I don't know anything - I just picked him off while he was driving around. Looking forward to seeing you and Chelle in Central City.
Another Kowalski Special - this one ran in the 170's, 180's
? 911 is 300 mph+ '34 Ford roadster - holds multiple records
@Jalopy Joker I didn't find an image of that 911 roadster - just a 911 coupe.
OK - likely just a typo in your records - they do not use duplicate numbers at Bonneville
If you explain it to me enough times, I finally get it @Jalopy Joker. I thought you were looking for a Porsche 911but what we are talking about is a '34 Ford with the number of 911
And I missed seeing and meeting you,,, again

Not knocking it but this tow rig is what's happening to Bonneville...
Hey Anthony (@typo41) I would have liked that too. I did not have official press credentials for this so I did not have one of the lime green vests and kind of blended in. @jimmy six here is another image of that truck with a very cool '33 Ford that came with it, or at least I think it did.
Let me know for next year, and you can be part of my team
That would be awesome Anthony (@typo41). I'll be in touch and we can talk more about that. - Thank you.
A more detailed look at Larry Jones' (@winduptoy) '29 Roadster
1926 Ford Model T with 354 Hemi - Jim Ireland (@Irishjr )
Yep, you just know it. One of these days, I'm gonna get there for real.
Again, the best salt in over 10 years, it was amazing.
I never gave-up hope, just wish we could of had the roadster there,,, almost went home and got it.
You will get there Wayne (@Bowtie Coupe) - it took me a while and I live a lot closer. Of course, both the last two times I had it scheduled, they cancelled it. I have no frame of reference, Anthony (@typo41), since it was my first time, so I am glad to hear you say that.
1933 Ford at the Hop Up after party.
1930 Ford - Tom Hardy - Denver Detonators
Wonderful pics, Dan. The one with the three Bones' cars leaving reminds me of the mirages that were in the old westerns. I really Did see them..............right?
Thanks @catdad49. It really was like that - I was aimed at the course and then as I looked around I saw them way off in the distance cruising out. I just turned around and banged off a few shots. A lot of the long range shots were tricky or impossible because the heat waves coming off the ground really did give things the look of a mirage.
F/CPRO - Gregory T. Lloyd. This Corvair ran at least 141.924.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrreat pictures, Dan. Too bad you missed Mullen's HAMB truck.
Trust me that was Not a criticism, I Love that pic (and the others). What a place for a photo shoot!
Thanks you @gsnort. What kind of truck was it? I may not have missed it.
@catdad49 - I wasn't taking it as a criticism. I appreciate your comment. I did find the mirage effect came into play when I was trying to capture the cars running the course. It is something I will work on next year - mostly by figuring out a better place to shoot from.
I know Dan, just messin' with you. Look up John Mullen on here, he has a build thread for his 640 truck, the Va. HAMB Special.
