  Hopefully some one on this site (Mike ?) will post the pictures that I just looked at on The Hamb, under the heading "Kent Fuller needs photoshop help".
  With all the high dollar Streamliner's being built it is nice to see what a true craftsman for the past fifty years has accomplished with very little help or money.
  This car puts new meaning to the term "Low and Slippery".
  It deserves a spot next to Marlo's in the Smithsonian.                Bob

I "snipped" this from the HAMB site and as you can see it is typical Kent Fuller, outside the box thinking and nice. It will be fun to see this car in inspection as it is formed from 10 gauge plate (.134 thickness) and is monocock, i.e. no frame and I am not sure what Kent has done in the drivers compartment area regarding a roll structure. Sure hope to see him at Bonneville. I do see him at the Tuesday "Hot rod lunches" at Fred Stokes once and a while, I'll ask him what the schedule looks like.

Thanks for the pictures.  Was wondering how it was going. Looks great.  Can't quite see where the driver is located.

I believe they intend to run it this year. Nice chat yesterday, I appreciate the tips. Dad still had to ask me why I am doing this as we cooked those BBQ ribs. They were good, you would approve.

Will the rules let you run without any side vision, looks like just the front window?


Cool looking liner.

Who can fit in that needle, Slim? Hes the right shape, long and lean. That is one awsome looking liner.

I agree a nice car! Another question would be what association will let it run? I think he can run it under FIA rules perhaps at cooks meet or buy private time @ Bonneville?

Where can one find more build pics, or did I miss that?
