    Unhappy Speedster

    speedster auburn 2014.jpg

    Here it is, took 2 hrs to get it on the forum.

    1930 Model A frame, Rootlieb body out of Turlock CA, 29 radiator shell,
    Model B engine block (80 yrs old), full oil pressure & insert bearings, Miller Hi Speed Head(OHV), two Stromberg 97's carbs, Brierley cam, Muncie M20 4speed trans., Winters Quick Change V8 Rear End, Hyd. brakes.

    The driver is Wesley I told you about him in another post, winning the welding competition in FFA. He is my new ranch manager. I play with old cars now.

    These cars are used for Hill Climbs, 1/10 mile for time, up to a 10% grade.
    Some are held at air ports (flat).

    Top speed in the tenth mile so far is 73mph.

    Pictured above is the second place car ,maybe next year.

    Good Luck,
    Bob
