Bonneville salt flats, v.2: MORE SPEED

Another round of unlikely heroes of the Salt:

Starting this off is the Mitsubishi Evo’s older brother, the Galant VR4.

Opel GT looking ready to attack!

Image

This rarely seen gem is an old Saab 99.

Image

Another Saab, the Sonett.

Image

Even a Studebaker Avanti came out!

Another Studebaker, getting a push. This is typically due to a combination of engine tuning, cooling systems and tall gears.Image

One of the great things about Bonneville is the sheer variety of vehicles that run. Check out this Subaru Justy!

Can you guess what this is? A Triumph Spitfire in all it’s aerodynamically modified glory.

Edit: Thanks to Bob Smith for the correction, this is actually a Triumph GT6+ which is a bit different than a Spitfire!  Image

Volvo’s can run too. Just ask this awesome Volvo P1800.

New cars are developed every year by manufactures to often prove a point of technology. VW entered a Jetta Hybrid last year, and did pretty well.Image

The Jetta hybrid’s distant relation, the Kharman Ghia.

Viper powered Saab 9-3

Then got mated with this:Image

A whole ton of fab work later, it got to this:

It got painted, and showed:

Then some fresh paint and carbon fiber, along with new wheels, and finally got to shred some tires:

Cool wheels that work on everything, v.1: BBS RS

I know there are many kinds of the BBS wheels in this style, and many things that can be done i.e. different types of lips, faces, caps, bolts, etc.

 

Somehow, they look good on anything.
