As a fan of everything that runs on the salt, very much looking forward to WOS in a few weeks.

I didn't see an entry list (sorry if I missed it) but like a lot of people wondering which of the "fast" cars might be in attendance?
 
I know Target 550 debut...

Danny Thompson?
Zainfeld Turbine?
Freyvogle?
Turbinator?

others?

WOS can't get here soon enough!

I think this is a great idea and I will try to bring my Tank. Right now I am working to get ready to run at World Finals. Having the heap strewn around the shop in pieces would preclude my bringing it to World of Speed but I'm trying. For the record, I won't be running as I'm working as Long Course Rover. Wayno

........more likely the real fighting will be between the pedants who think they have "real" bellytanks.The people who have tanks and are busy just enjoying themselves could leave them to it, stand back, have a beer and watch the hair pulling.

I so dearly wish I could be there, I could stand next to our WING tank car and have a beer with Wayno and deride him because his is made from fibreglass and we could both feel left out at the same time....then Big Ol Bill with his REAL BELLYtank car could sit in with us because he doesn't have a flat head or some other important detail , but we all built our cars, we all love this stuff and we'd be havin a hail of a time.....

Or I could be a real tosser and bring this.....


it's just that I'm ten thousand miles away, and I ain't got a dime....oooooh, that just needs a chorus........... rolleyes

We have received good response about featuring Belly Tanks this year at WOS. Dennis S. has put together
some real nice participant awards to be given to those that show up with one.  Wayno, we would love to have your car show up along with you. 
The current number of overall entries for WOS look good. I will get with Ellen and see about posting a
pre entry list so you all will have an idea what to look forward to.
See everyone in a couple of weeks.

How long does it take to ship a belly tank and a tosser from down under??

Well, sadly too long Monte.

We are pretenders anyway. I'd sworn I'd never go to Bonneville without our tank, but I fell, I lived in sin. Now I've been there twice and spent some of the money I could have used to get the car there..... Next year at our meet we hope to get into the 230's which puts us in shooting distance of the Jack Kelly E/Gas Lakester record, Wayno was involved with that effort as we all know...see? it's all connected .....we have always intended though to get to Bonneville it's just that we won't be going twice and the best method we figure is to get the car properly sorted here.Can't think of anything better than being there with the car.

One day Monte, one day.

Still, congratulations on the idea....

We will make sure to post some pictures so you can participate in the experience from afar.  Will look
forward to seeing you and the car here some day.
We sure had fun with the Healey boys when they showed up. A great group of people and first class
workmanship on the vehicles.

Well, I can't can't guarantee either of those with our crew but it will be an experience you will remember either way, you will still be laughing at, and with us long after we're gone......... rolleyes

Last year returning from WoS I bought this small wing tank in the little town of Hagerman, Idaho. I seemed to be purposed as a carnival ride at some time in it's life, had a seat, steering wheel and tail fin; might have had wings too. It measures about 75" long and 24" OD.  Now it's being converted into a "go-get-ice cream-pit car", powered by a small diesel engine, the 16" wheels (14" wheels in photo) are to have Moon disks, plus it will be decked out with a few other hot-rod things.  Needless to say it is taking longer than anticipated and will not make the 2013 tank display at WoS.

Does anyone know if the USFRA will be giving the speeds on the FM or CB?

I don't know which radio they'll use -- but  do know that the announcer they'll be using will know how to tell us what's going on.
