 Oh yeah.  When I was an apprentice plumber I was milking some piping too long and the journeyman called me a pipehack. Well.... we both thought it was funny and I chose it for username.

Good score on the lathe. The carbide insert tooling will work really well for doing things quickly but if you want to get a fine finish with a small lathe go back to the old fashioned form and sharpen it yourself tool steel. The sharper tool will give you a finer finish.

Hi Ship

Welcome to the Salt bunch

That 55' Buick would be like pushing a barn door, not too good in the aero dept

What ever class you plan on running just think about ' A Small Package to Cut the Wind '

At 4500 feet you are going to loose power, so that does not help either unless you have a blower

That's okay. I was up there several times when I was living in Indianapolis and I still checked Google Maps before I made the reply. Those extra years keep playing with the mind.

Hi, My name is Steve Fowler and I am the crew cheif of our 34 ford coupe running in the aa/g altered class. our car is number 3434. We drive our car from Minneapolis, race it, and drive it back home if the Gods allow! We built our car as a street car that can also safely run at bonneville. It has been there and ran 7 times with or best speed to date being 189.6 mph. We are trying to go 200mph so we can have that coveted 200mph club sticker on our street car. Our trip is alittle more expensive since we drive the car and bring two support vehicles with for the trip. We would really appreciate any feedback on salt conditions before we leave on the 27th of September, this coming Friday. Its a real bummer to get there and just have to turn around and go home. ( We've been there before.) Thanks in advance for any updates you all may send our way! Steve.

Steve --

I hope you understand that in order to join the Bonneville 200 MPH Club, you have to set a class record over 200, and, maybe, meet a minimum speed set by the club in certain classes.  See their website for particular information.

Steve,

If your coupe falls into the AA/CGAlt class you have to beat a record of 246, if you have EFI on the engine you fall into AA/GAlt class where the record is 276. That is what it takes to get a red hat or one of them stickers.

Good luck,
