  • It runs in the chassis too

    Started the R3 in the car today for the first time since we dynoed it.
    I guess the Prestolite Trans Ignitor Transistor ignition is wired correctly!

    Now that just isn't fair... I was at your shop yesterday, and you waited until I went home to fire it up.

    Here's a few pics.. Brad is building what are undoubtedly some of the nicest Avantis extant.













    And a picture of one of the wheelcovers I restored. I had to restore them and install. Geez..

          I like the top secret, under development stuff as much as I appreciate the restora tion work. The Bonneville Hawk engine development program moves from theory to making chips fly in the morning. Was Wile E. Coyote interested Hawks like he was in Roadrunners and Mustangs? How's that for a cryptic clue?

            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
