Bonneville Salt Flats Rods, Racing & People

More Random Saltines

Just photos of cars at Bonneville.

This is the vertical tail of the “Maro Special” streamliner.  It looks like an experimental jet from the 50’s a la “X-1″.  I feel like Chuck Yeager should be hopping out of the cockpit of this beast.  The goal of this ‘liner is 450MPH.  Serious biz!

This bike caught my eye.  I don’t take many pics of motorcycles.  I guess they’re kind of the forbidden fruit as its entirely impossible I’ll ever own one.  But, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying a well built custom bike that goes real fast.  I liked the wraped header and the military green paint job.

Here’s Jeff Brock’s Bonneville Bombshell Buick at the 2010 Bonneville Nationals.  I caught the crew taking the hood off (or was it putting it back on?).  I dig the matching crew shirts.

Dig the Wendover mountains in the background with some handsome hot rods.  This is what you’ll find at the big Cruise In at the Nugget Casino in Wendover during the first couple days of Speedweek.

I think my favorite part of cruise ins is sitting at the entrance and watching the rods arrive.  I like to see what kind of people own the cars.  This couple look like they’re having a blast owning this Model T (Thanks for the correction Errol) hot rod with a 3 deuce small block chevy.  The yellow accents are working here but personally I think the rear meats are too meaty.

68 days until Speedweek.  I sure hope the rain/wet dries up.  I don’t think I could wait another year for Speedweek.  Pray for a hot and windy summer.  haha

    The little blue #691 is a Ford/Mercury Capri.

    Ford Capri not Mercury with the 4 cylinder hood. the V6 had a bulge. Also the “Model A” at the end is actually a ’27 T. Cool pics regardless, thanks.
