Hey, Todd.  I'll see if I can disable the punctuation-delete function on your profile so we can understand a little better.

Hello, as it says on my post my name is Gary Freudenberger, aka ?Freudman.? Why Freudman, well as you know, FREUD was already taken. Yep, same guy?

My first trip to the salt was in 1973 at the impressionable age of 10 years. I learned many things on that trip; First lesson, ?when you turn off I-80 and hit the access road, you?re gonna want to mash on the gas! Just know that you have a 90 degree turn up ahead.? I?m thinking, ?we are in a feakin? Pinto Wagon, not too worried about the 90 degree turn. In later years I discovered the wisdom of lesson 1, fortunately not the hard way, but close?

In those days FREUD spent the ENTIRE day shooting pictures while I was left to find mischief on my own. As you can imagine, with FREUD as my mentor how could I go wrong?!
I hung out with Marlo at the ?Roach Coach Cantina? as his trailer was named and with Team Vesco, Don was running the Silver Bird at that time. After dinner at The Hideaway Club, it was time to get to work. Our nights were spent in the corner room at The Best Western right below the rock, printing pictures. The next day we would be out on the salt and people would be shocked that we had a shot of them on the course the previous day.

In the spirit of FREUD, more stories to follow in the tribute section to the man you all knew as FREUD but I knew as Dad.

  I have told this story before and may be mistaken about a fact or two but many years ago Der Freudenberger and a couple of abetters in crime were doing a photo shoot for some hot dog motorcycle in the Mountains of Hawaii.  Once the shoot was over they loaded the camera's, motorcycle, themselves and apparently a well stocked bar into the helicopter used for the shoot.
  Suffice to say the motorcycle never landed with the copter, etc.  The only thing that could have made it better would have been for Glenn to doff His trousers, don a parachute, and driven the motorcycle out the door at say... three thousand feet or so..................
would have been a record for sure..................
  Doris may or may not know about this one............................
                                                                                                 Bob :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Yeah, I think so.  I took a look at the profile and didn't see too much that was scary so I didn't nuke it right away, but now that you've added your comments -- I guess it's time. :mrgreen:

"Dammit Dave  it duse not work like that, well you built it and it duse work like that. Dammit Dave why do you have to be right?"
    Too many people in my past

 David Droescher  2019 3.5mi short corse stewart, 55T 2017 @87.14mph
Prototype fabercator/designer
 Retried Army 1-41INF  veteran in need of a long turm goal.

 Phil Knox more passionately known as Aerohead On Ecomodder.com sponsored a run through the now disassembled Darco wind tunnel  in 2017.  Showed a 24% improvement on Cd... Followed with a trip to World of Speed to check out the eye candy( especially for an amateur aerodynamicist) witch lead to me finding a loaner helmet and running a Baseline of 87.14 (92.5  governor @2500rpm) yes 130mph is in sight with a 3500 gov but requires altering the fuel map to install. 

Phase 1 goal  is 130club in a 5500lbs Dodge D250 on factory fuel 160hp/400tq just need the gearing. Ive installed a Allison 6sp( .61 double Overdrive) , next is a 2wd transfer case that utilizes the donuts from a Winters quick change and proper tires.(??? Can I run the same spec as the B/DT 622  227.5mph  [7200lbs +200ga water ballast]   86H @ 90psi [@35 psi sidewall 1186lbs 130mph] ???
 
. Phase 2 150mph with a fuel tune(3500 gov and turn the screws)  450hp 1350tq possable.  If I build  my aero package right the truck may go 150 @2000rpm with just gear changes.
My build has been hosted @ Ecomodder.com https://ecomodder.com/forum/showthread.php/long-road-bonneville-goals-40mpg-useable-pickup-150-a-35805.html
Phase 3 luse the  Truck  title and convert to a glorified station wagon that seats 2 and run for broke  ,if we can find a class to run in that allows compression-ignitions, aerodynamic modifications, and stock body panals; currently there is none.

"Aero is for economy not for going faster with the same power unless you run a car "
Rule book.
Thats impossible.  Just wait till my wallet catches up to my brain.

Craig Gullett from Berea, KY. I ride alot,more dirt now days than street, race occasionally some Enduro/cross country. Been riding for many years and hopefully many more. Since my wonderful children have entered my life and put things in perspective I have checked several things off my bucket list to encourage them to step out of their comfort zone, go out chase their dreams and never let people tell them they don't have it in them. So its looking like 2020 we will be in Bonneville.

Fred Seaman. Long time follower of LSR. First time on the salt was 2019 World of Speed.

If it is fast for what it is, I like it.
