I found this photo on Michael LeFevers's facebook page. Perhaps it is the blown configuration. States as a question "Mickey & Fitz changing bearings with the blown Tempest 4 engine at March AFB?"

Danny Thompson answered my ?? stating this picture was indeed at March AFB during his (Mickey) multi-vehicle record fest.

  The engine, along with all the spare parts are now owned by The World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville, Oregon.  The engine is on display in the "dragster/lakester" body along with several other of Mickey's cars.  When I was last there they also had the 4 engine streamliner which was on loan from the Thompson family.
  If You are in the Northwest You need to check out the Museum.  It is located right on I-5 just south of Portland and has a ton (literally) of great cars from Nascar to Indy to Drag Racing to famous motorcycles to hot rods of the forties and fifties on up.
  Lot's of Landspeed cars and bikes and they rotate the display vehicles with other famous museums and private collectors so even if You have already been there, its worth going again and again.

Are you sure, Bob? 

I just went thru all of the pictures that I took (a lot) and the only 4-cylinder seems to be in Attempt 1, which is not visible but, based on the body, appears to be unblown.

Are you thinking about the 2-cylinder?

He might be talking about this engine that came from Bucky Austin?

Well Rod Hynes got back to me regarding this car. The first picture was indeed from 71 as previously stated. He sent a couple older photos of the car so I had to share.
