specially for the Bonneville Salt Flats. It is built to run for the XXO/VOT(vintage oval track) record.
The car features inboard steering and suspension, many aero tweeks and a 270 OFFY thumper.
Note the aero wheel disc with Halibrand wheel graphics.
A.J. Watson was in my shop many times during the the build and liked the car a lot.
Interestingly A.J. said that even as a young racer in SoCal, He had never been involved
running a car at Bonneville.
The Johnston-Carbone-Wendt team out of Miami Fla. had a purty good first year "on the salt"
with a top speed of 181 MPH on their final run.
