Cam, go to your profile and give us a little more info. where do you live city and state, address is not needed. What type of streamliner are you planning, what is your racing back ground. Lots of help here but we need your help also.

I'm in northern Utah. We are still in the planning stages. Not quite sure about everything yet, but we are leaning toward a front wheel drive rotory. I don't have much racing experience other than an autocross, and a few times at the drags with my rx7. I am a Auto-mechanic by trade.

We all started land speed racing with little experience.  Welcome.

Hello:) Kjell from Norway here.

Landspeed racing has allways fascinated me. First I plan to get to the salt this year and then maybe start i build:)
currently I'm doing vintage dragracing with my blown, alky flathead FED. I have also a Moell A Tudor Hot Rod, and a couple of 49 Ford Cupe's.
The 2-port Hilborn I use, has som LSR History, came from Larsen & Cummings T-27 roadster:)

Welcome, Kjell.  First of all -- let me explain to the non-Nordic folks here that your name is pronounced "Shell" -- no tongue-twisting "kuh-jell", please.

That said, welcome to the Forum.  We've got a few Swedes and a Dane or two -- but I don't remember any other Norwegians, so you're elected to represent all of your lands-men.  And we'll be happy to have you visit us at the salt this year, of course.  let us know what you're doing and planning.

First post here. Last August was my first trip to Bonnevile. Have wanted to go since I'm about 12 when Hot Rod used to cover it. It was everything I knew it would be, had the time of my life. Hope to learn a lot here.

Hi all,  my Jase Strickland, I'm currently in college for bs degree in diesel technology and a welding certificate. I grew up in the trucking industry and on the 1/4mile drag strip. In the last couple years land speed racing has been really getting my attention.  8-) Currently up here at college in Montana, a group of students got together and formed a diesel racing club on campus. We all decided that land speed was the direction that we wanted to go, we're think about running a 1976 f250 ford ex-cab 2wd pickup and swapping out the 460 for a 12valve Cummins.  :-D My main job is to make sure any metal fabrication is up spec and tech on this outfit we planning on building. Anyhow,  enough about me, hope y'all have great and god bless.

Jase, everybody needs to get a rulebook and read it multiple times prior to starting the project, building within the rules is the path for the group.  Good luck with the project

Hello all, my names Neil and I run the Vintage Hot Rod Association.

I found the forum after finding links back to it on the VHRA stats page, so I thought it would be rude not to introduce ourselves. I don't suppose any of our cars will get near a land speed record but we're planning to have fun on Pendine Sands later this year.
