    It's usually referred to as "World of Speed", just so you know.

    Or in more colloquial terms "the Outlaw Meet".

  8. Helped out my local buddy, Don Nuss, with his streamliner.
    It's run 341on a 379 record, considered the World's Fastest Ford powered automobile.
    Unfortunately, a sideways slide wiped out his 2 rear tires, and we didn't have any spares, plus, an oil return line came off and filled the cockpit with smoke at 271 mph.
    Oh, well, maybe next year....

    We were out in my father in laws '50 Plymouth. He got the 130 club. Next year we will aim for 150. We had a great time and met some fantastic people.
