    @fatkoop - you were fortunate. I was about to get to take it for a spin when it started having electrical problems and wouldn't start. So maybe at HRHC? We'll see. I have been friends with Larry for quite a while. He is a really great guy.
    Meanwhile - here is one of you out running around on the salt that I caught from a ways away.

    No I didn't - that must have been a blast? How fast did you end up going?

    I love this truck, bike and trailer combo. I would have loved to have had an unobstructed shot of it.

    Saline Solution 2 - hit 197 at least once, but also seemed to have a few problematic runs.

  24. I always enjoy your stuff, Dan. I think you could shoot a trash can and make it sing. Thanks for your coverage.

    Something else I really did not expect to see there was this very cool 1927(?) or so Dodge. If anyone knows this car and the exact year, I would love to know that. By late on Sunday, the skies were pretty much white due to smoke haze, but I do kinda like the surreal look it gave. The light was fantastic, especially for dark cars like this one.
