    OK. I'm going up against Bad Bob. I have my own Bonneville pics and while I'm a bit late to start posting... here they are.

    In fact, I just didn't want to barge in on someone elses thread so I thought I'd start my own. I don't have as many as Bob (maybe a couple hundred) but I'll see how we fare. I'll put a few up and guage the interest. Sorry for the late entry :eek:

    This Chev was one of only about 3 that if it was mine I couldn't put it on the salt. Beautiful

    This T was magic. We hung out with these guys for the first few days. It belongs to a guy called Steve who was around when it all began. He bought it a few years back from a friend who built it in the 60s. Just did some minor finishing and drove it. You need to spend time looking at it. All steel body, 364 nailhead with 6 x 97s, 4 speed, Old Halibrands with spindle mounts on front, cheater slicks and quickchange and original diamond tuft upholstery. Man it's all real hot rod.

    We sold our bikes before we left. Never go to Bonneville without a bike, or something with wheels

    That's a nice batch of interesting photos. A guy (or gal) who likes Bonneville can never get their fill of photos from there.
