Chris Mursick and I took our Ghias to the Bonneville Salt Flats last week and had a great time running at the 2017 Speed Week event.  Chris's black Ghia runs a 1968cc normally aspirated engine and I am running a 1915cc turbocharged engine.

 Chris beat my 2 records from last year running 113.358 MPH in G/CFALT and 124.611 MPH in G/CGALT (G is the engine size, Classic, Gas or Fuel, and ALTered is the body style).

I set one open record in G/CBGALT at 134.606 and we beat a record held by a turbocharged SAAB in G/CBFALT.  We bumped the record from his 140.857 MPH to 146.715 MPH.  I had an unofficial top speed of 150.3 MPH and we will be going back out in Sept. for World of Speed to run some more.

Good stuff grin It was great working with you!
Wasn't one of the records set by Chris run with a spark plug wire hanging off?
Cheers, Mike

Yes, When he went to impound after the record run one of the plug wires was hanging off the side.
