      That car was built at Johnson's Hot Rod Shop in Gasden, AL.
      A lot of Bonneville Stude stuff is posted up over at Sonny's site:

        Nothing unusual about Stude content on the salt.... they are a tradition.

          The 9913 car went 227 and spun out. It hit the timing light and tweaked the nose a little. They are gearing up for the World Finals. They still have the little set up engine in the car. Next year the big engine goes in. It is one of the most technilogically beautiful cars and is strikingly beautiful too. Can't wait to see it in person next year.
