    I posted this picture else where. But I guess it belongs here. Hank LaShey's Bantam. 261 Chevy with Wayne head. I really like this car and wish it would come back. img005.jpg

    I heard that several years ago. I wonder what it needs to be legal today.

    Hank was the guy that turned me on to LSR. I miss him.
    His son Hawk has the car, but he is wrapped up in his business building custom cycles.
    Hope to see it run again too. I have a bunch of pics of it on the salt(35mm).......I should get them scanned and post them.

    I found some photos of Hank and his car......most were pretty bad exposures(35mm). Here's a couple of the better ones. From 1990 I think? Must have been the first year he ran, no number on the car in some pics.

    This 40 held almost all of the XO gas records until the BMR 32 coupe came along. It is currently under reconstruction for use on the street by JD Tones son.

    At the lasts lakes meet, a friend of Salt Circus came to me and showed me a photo of this car in a shop. The word is that it is being worked on.

    That's great to hear. I hope it makes it back to the salt/lakes.
