After previewing my advance copy, I as so blown away by the incredible detail that author John Baechtel has compiled on the Goldenrod story that I have added a special link on my website. The book is literally "on the boat" to the USA along with blueprints and posters. Geez. Baechtel's website provides a very well done promo. The cost is bit more than normal hard covers, but the quality, detail and color is worth the extra coin. Well. . ., at least to me and I guessing those who are after the mechanical and engineering details of such a fabulous hot rod will agree. I will be using some of what Baechtel has written to augment my new book on Bonneville's speed century for the university of Utah Press. Parking it in the bibliography today.

See for yourself at www.landspeedproductions.biz

I plan on having a box of them with me at World of Speed.

There is good SAE article about the aerodynamics of Goldenrod written by the designer. Don't have time to look in my files for it now as hitting road for the salt in about 10 mins. I can pull it out when I get home if anyone wants details. I used the basic concepts to design my 'liner.

Are you referring to the Korff papers on the design? He worked with Bob Sumers to design the aero package
