Roger Lessman Streamliner
« on: July 17, 2019, 08:44:19 PM »
  What happened to the Lessman streamliner that I saw run in a 1989 video at Bonneville. It was running an E class V6. Is it RWD? Is it running under different ownership.

Is this the car you are inquiring about?

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

But he built a new streamliner in the past years... probably a known fact.

Went 360 + change so far IIRC.
