Bonneville Salt Flats

Prepped for only one thing: SPEED.

Bonneville prepped First Gen Mazda RX7:

The rear quarter window gives this one away: Datsun 240Z.Image

The Banks Sidewinder Dodge Dakota: World’s fastest pickup, and powered by a diesel.

I will be doing a post on some of the Banks project vehicles sometime.

Would you believe this Salt Flats prepped Ferrari 575 Maranello was slower than the Dakota, only hitting a best of 212.6 so far?

Can you believe this started life as a humble Fiat 600?Image

Thunder from down under: A Ford Falcon taxi?Image

Dakotas aren’t the only pickups to play in the salt. This Ford Ranger was mighty quick too.Image

Banks yet again, a GMC Sonoma this time.Image

Note the engine and ridiculous front end on this Honda N600!Image

Maybe one of the most beautiful cars to hilt the salt, a Mercedes 300SL.Image

My first car: 1963 Ford Falcon

I bought this car when I was 14. I didn’t even have my learners permit yet. I spent $750 of my hard earned money I had got from my part time job at a local used car lot. When we got it home, we found out it had some questionable repairs to the floorpan, and never really drove it. Also, some examples of what these cars can look like with some work.
