Nice shots. It looks like the camera automatically kept creeping toward the starter.

Not sure of what this is, new to me. Take it has to be OLD equipment?  Lots of neat old bikes there, and where do they have that many old cars still with good bodies??? Love to have one of those 30's Roadsters.  Flag-person Did seem kinda "Cheekie", ha!

Most of those are originals cars from all over US,,,of course 32 to 34 ford 3 and 5 windows are available in repops,,,likely more on the road than Henry ever built.

It was a really good  time and yes the starter was remarkable to say the least . People from all over the USA  Canadians , people from Ireland and even some racers from Japan. I can't wait to go again next year. Hank

I think this is bringing back the old days of beach timed runs that was even before Bonneville. This pic is Jessie Combs fastest woman on 4 wheels. She's from here, Rapid City, SD and now is quite famous and has a couple TV shows on some of the expensive cable package channels that I can't afford. I think her Bonneville record is around 450 MPH. She was also was on Myth Busters for a time while the Red head (can't remember her name) was pregnant.

Jessie was on spike shows, 4 wheel, trucks, ect for awhile.  I remember her on mythbusters too when Kari was off having her baby.

Didn't get to reply last night, Hank, it sounds like that they were plagued with not getting the two Model T engines tuned to work together right. On the Craftsman tools Facebook page they did say she won one of her races, and the steering wheel rim came off doing it!-LOL!

It did indeed come off, nothings funnier than holding a  wheel that's not attached.
