Everyone involved with Target550, Marlo Treit's streamliner build, are so pleased with the interest, the realistic questions you have asked,

your continuing to stay with us as the build slowly progresses and the compliments you have laid on us.


Happy New Year to all of our Landracing.com family.

Oh Boy, new pictures on Target 550.

Freud and Ray, love that front end.  8-)

Thanks again,

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.

I got some photos of the front axle of the liner from Freud and put 'em on the web server yesterday.  There are a coupla images at the beginning of the section that consist of text giving a little bit of information about the axle, its components and the Greek coupler used in it.  I'd never seen one before and it struck me as being a pretty kool device.

There are also a couple of CAD (that guy again) drawings supplied by the supplier that show a hub and its exploded view (no, not a view of it exploding.)

The newest section is here: http://www.target550.com/gallery/22_Front_End_Detail/index.html

I hope you enjoy them.

Yeah.  It's a sneak peek at HumeCAD v4.0r.  Brand new version of the CAD system he uses.

Desotoman, you have too much time on your hands. Why don't you go check the storm drain closest to your house and insure that you won't float away with this new irrigation system that So. California is experiencing.  I still want you at the same address when I come

down next weekend for the SCTA Banquet.

I am planning to have Hume offer a course on Hume CAD v4.0r. All u need to bring in a pencil, an eraser and a pencil sharpener.

The remainder of the supplies are included.

If you dwell on Target550.com, it's all the fault of Ray the Rat.  I supply the dribble but he posts it.  Correction: fault TREIT. He pays

the tariff.

In all sincerity.....Thanks for your interest.

Right on, Doc.  Treit pays the bills, we give each according to our abilities (don't ask where that quote came from.)

I just got one more website to put to bed tonite and maybe I can put me to bed tonite.  What a frikkin concept.  

I been workin on one called "Kutter and Rat"
http://www.kutterandrat.com/Welcome.html  It's in early development stages.

The one I need to put to bed is the Auto Expo shoot:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cruisin/cruisin2010/Welcome.html

I divided it up into two different ways of lookin at the photos: Single and Multiple.  In the Single section, there's one representative shot of the car.  In the Multiple section, there are all the shots of each car/truck/whatever.  If ya want a quick browse, choose the "Single"  If ya want the whole enchilada, choose Multiple.  The second part is under construction as we speak.  Then I gotta get back on my "Early Daze" section from my army/Germany/Marrakech hippie days.  That one is REAL slow.  But if you've ever been to Miltenberg am Main, I have a whole lotta shots of that town, since I lived there for 2 years and consider it my German home town:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/earlydaze/02-germany/03-miltenberg/Welcome.html  There are a buncha other sections like Basic training at Ft Polk Louisiana and AIT at Ft Bliss Tx....and there will be some vintage racing stuff added and I dig out from the rubble of the re-structure.

Of anyone has a better concept of how to name or organize the single/multiple shot thing, I'd love to hear it.

Next comes e-commerce so folks can order prints and other stuff on line.

And I thought I was retired.  Hah!

There are some new photos and captions on the website:

This post shows how Jason (Jim Hume's assistant) creates mounting supports for the fire bottles.  Pretty hefty stuff.

Progress is being made every day.

This project is 11 years in the making, Marlo said he should have started a year earlier. Great streamliner. 99% of the work by Jim.

Great Photos. Can't tell about the leg room but it appears the drivers head is going to be right over his butt. Personally that's the right way to do it. My brain works better when I'm not laying down....(not that it works that well anyway). :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
