I went on a road trip with a couple of friends in Dec. 1975, from Vancouver, BC, first to San Jose for a wedding, then on to visit Iskendarian Racing Cams, Gale Banks Engineering, and a couple of other people involved in salt flat racing. On the way home we stopped in Tonopah, Nevada to see this car , which was for sale at the time. My friend Dave Green wanted to get into Bonneville racing. If I recall correctly, it was in Neil Thompsons basement garage, and we spent a few hours looking it over, and hearing stories. he didn't buy the car, but came home and started on his own car.
Eventually, he ran a Vega and set a record with it with his cousin driving at 249.7 mph.
They built a streamliner as well, and set records with that too!
That was a fun road trip, staying at Motel 6's along the way, and the 8 track in my W31
cranking out the tunes!
