Re: BMS Bullet V8

Unfortunately the Bullet car will not be at the lake this year however I am very much looking forward to coming down with Arthur DeMain and his electric Corolla.
The 747 Bullet will be there in 2017 after a well deserved rebuild and a set of LSR tyres.

Re: Let's go string up Animal

Times change....Animal doesn't. And now that everyone has a camera it's easy to be a critic should one choose to be. Maybe he would look more acceptable in pressed white trousers A La Bonneville but I have no trouble understanding his communications and he gets a difficult job done. I love good pres...

Re: BMS Bullet V8

Yeah... Thank God there are 24 hours in a day. We are starting to prep the trailer today, and still working late each night on the car. It needs about 50 hours of work before we can load it next Wednesday night.
Unfortunately we still have a business to run, but hey it's all happening.
