Talked with Marlo last weekend, his liner does fit in container with tail off , so he said they blessed in that aspect.

Mike...by removing the tail section it will fit in a container.

That is his plan now.

Bolivia sounds doable, except..............old lungs probably

can't take it. Add a heart valve replacement and it is not

advisable.  That's Marlo's heart.......not mine.

Australia, here we come. PLEASE treat us well.

With todays positive report from B'Ville we may have a

brief Test and Tune during Speed Week.  Time and surface

will tell.  8 miles will give us a 375 pass and depending on

how it stops Les may break 400 MPH.

No promises, just optimism.

Don't know any Land Speed Racers that are pessimists..... optimism is what keeps us alive from one August to the next...
We can go faster 
See you soon (he says with optimism in his voice)  :cheers:

Sorry, guys.  It should be someone named Mike who lives within commuting distance of where it's stored.   :cheers:

  Sorry guy's but both engines use Crowerglide clutches so it just fires up and as soon as Les is ready He can just drive away (if He so chooses). The carriage awaits at the other end and ... well I guess You could tow the carriage back to the pits but I wouldn't want to be the one who fu*ks up turning into the pits!

Far Away Mike is a fast learner.

Recovering from Jet Lag will have

his head spinning but he can just

close his eyes and drive.

Highly Qualified.

It's his job if he wants it.
