Curious as how this car could do 215mph at Daytona and only 181mph at Bonneville Salt Flats   shruggy
It never ran either.   There is NO way that car would pass tech at Bonneville to legally do 181.

Sorry, just can't take it any longer! Been biting my tongue sense the 1st pix.  Tongue

But why the tiny typically 2.5-4psi fuel pump and regulator on the ps inner fender?

Is it the only pump, ...or is it a primer for long time setting in between start ups?

Inquiring minds want to know. slap shruggy

After looking at the various colors on this car, I'm just wondering where all the midgets and clowns  go who pile out of the car once it comes to a stop icon_smile_big

It's pretty cool the car is still identical to how it appeared in Street Machine magazine in the late 70's.   I think I heard that a friend of Charlie Glotzbach was the most recent owner.     That was as of last summer.
