Well it would run Comp Coupe at bonneville. Body looks like it could something like a vega or pinto wagon body or maybe datson wagon.

Post it on Landracing.com, someone has to know about it.

Make sure your water pump is on whenever you check your coolant level.

1leg,

I think you have misunderstood my posts on this subject. We had the complete history on the 67 E/FALT & we sold the body/chassis recently.

The new car has no history out of the shop. It's a Chevy Chevette that was started back in the 80's & we worked on it until the early-mid 90's. My sponsor (Speedo) is to the point in his life where he can't complete his dream. He gave the project to his nephew & I to complete. So, we are re-lighting the torch & hopefully will carry it to completion.

I'm sorry for the miscommunication & I thank-you for taking interest in it! I guess I need to become a forum member on landracing.com

Ok cool. Yes if you are going to build a landspeed car you need to be be on that forum. But I warn you everytime you ask a tech question the first reply will be "Read a rule book" more then a few crumpy old men in this sport. But you will find someone to help you. Like I said I know a couple of car techs that would be willing to help make sure you are all up todate. Don't show up at an event without a pre tech. Had a guy show up at bonneville in 2013 with a new car went by the book when he built it and it still took him 3 days on the salt try to get it to pass tech. you can email me at jerryd@meziere.com

We had a small 4th of July get together this past weekend. Speedo had brought his scrapbook with the build pictures. All the pictures were taken with a Polaroid. I might try to take photos of a few with my phone & post up. The pictures were dated from 1989-1992. We were trying to remember all the plans for the motor, two of us remember it was going to be 305"s max & Speedo thought it was going to be a 360". The only thing we know for sure is the Dart/Buick 10* sbc heads & the cross-ram injection. We at least had photos to back that up, LOL! We don't remember who made the injection & we think it was Hilborn.

Anyway, we have a lot of inventory of parts that we have to go through & figure out a game plan. We are hoping to start doing all this in Oct.-Nov. time frame, with a 2-3 year completion date.

This is the 67 before we painted it that god awful orange, I'm not a fan of that color. I do like silver!

We received our 2022 Bonneville & El Mirage Rules & Records book today. Our record we are shooting for in the class is 244.260 in D/FCC, it's a fuel class. The plan is to do the shake down runs on alky & work our way up on the nitromethane percentages after. Eek

We have a long way to go & haven't really started yet. One of my sponsors (Speedo) is in the process of moving across the road from me. He's planning his new shop now, 30'x 40' & wants to make sure all of the nasty fiberglass work is done in his shop. All the chassis & finish work will be in my shop.

We have some of the engine stuff moved already. We stopped at his current place to check out moving the car & other parts hopefully in Oct. or Nov. Smile

Looks like we are finally scheduled to have this carport installed Tues. of next week. The dimensions changed slightly to 19'x 20' x 8' & I wish I could have got Barry's price, oh well.

This will allow us to store trailers & cars, with room in the shop for the Bonneville car.

We got the carport installed on the back of the shop. Moved the not fit for skid loader trailer under it along with the 68 Camaro.

The plan is to get the Bonneville project moved out to the shop the 1st or 2nd weekend of Nov.

Well you may have a little more time to build for Bonneville, I'm hearing rumors that the salt was damaged bad after this years storm during speedweek. hopefully not more then 1 year.

There is El Mirage, but we only ran 2 or 3 time this year.
Reach out if I can help some how.

We went through our inventory of motor parts yesterday. Got a lot of phone calls to make to manufactures & get specifications on all the new/old (80's) motor parts! Confused

She's in my shop (yesterday) & we have a butt load of work to do. I spent about 6 hours today starting to disassemble the car down to bare frame & body. Have to fabricate a complete belly pan for the underside. Plus, prep for chassis paint, some powder coat & undercoating. The car will be put back on the chassis rotisserie this coming weekend. That way I can do most of this work with ease, as you can see this car is really low.
