After reading this article http://www.hotrod.com/news/craig-breedlove-americas-600-mph-man/
it sounds like Craig Breedlove is going to build a new Land Speed Record Car. Does anyone know more about this project, what types of engines (2-J79's), where will it be built, who's paying for it, when will it be ready to roll, where will it be raced, why did he sell his last car (could not afford or did not want to spend his own money running it)...? What's the reason for going to two engines? Is it because the course is getting shorter, getting up to speed quickly is the key to success and a single engine is too slow?

Many of the questions I've asked are answered in this similar thread: http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php/topic,10462.0.html

"My, people come and go so quickly here." Dorothy, from the movie Wizard of Oz.

"I have marveled often at the thin line that divides success from failure, and the sudden turn that leads from apparently certain disaster to comparative safety." Ernest Shackleton, Antarctic Explorer, 1874-1922.

From the movie Dr. Strangelove, General Jack D. Ripper:

"Mandrake, in the name of Her Majesty and the Continental Congress come here and feed me this belt boy... Mandrake, come over here, the Red Coats are coming!"

"He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious "automotive" bodily fluids."
