Quick History: Engine Rebuild

This Bonneville Salt Flats racer in 1958 is rebuilding a Chrysler Hemi in the parking lot of the hotel in Wendover, Utah. It was not at all uncommon. If you have not seen the movie “World’s Fastest Indian,” you really need to. It captures the true spirit and cleverness of land speed racers on the Salt Flats.

Something to Say?

  1. Great story from my dad . . . mechanical fuel injection Vette back in the 60’s at Lake of the Ozarks area . . . was in town and they dismantled the whole thing, rebuilt the injection system, and backed it out into the street and lit it sideways. Ah . . . “the good old days”
