Bonneville streamliner/lakester
#1

ENTIRE BONNEVILLE RACING OPERATION  50k
My declining health requires sale.
250 Inch wheelbase streamliner built for Bonneville salt flats racing.  7.6 sq feet frontal area.
3.0L(my version with HD iron block XT Midget engine).  Jerico air shifted 4 speed trans and Winters quick change rear.  Car fits driver from 5 foot to 6 foot 3" tall
I am in the middle of adding front and rear suspension, so this is a bit of a project.  (the price reflects that) 
The car has the best equipment, and nothing spared in building a safe competetive car.
Photos on request.

SORRY to hear of your "declining health", Rick ~ you've been an inspiration to all of us "TurboForders" over the years. I'm 76 and my body is constantly reminding me of the old adage, "getting old isn't for sissies"!!   Sad

You may have already done so, BUT.....placing an ad in "Racing Junk" might also be helpful in selling the car. Good luck with the sale!  <thumbup>

Thanks Ray
The health issues began in 2010 when an illness caused kidney damage and function has been declining since then.  Dialysis is in the near future for me.  The suicide death of my son Jim 2 years later just adds to the misery.  I have not done well handling it.  Grief is a BITCH.

Good news is that I still enjoy working on the car, and if not sold as a project, it will be worth a lot more when back together and ready to race.
This posting is the very first, and I will be using every resource to sell everything.

Thanks for your kind words.

Rick,

Sorry to hear about you reaching ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease). I have been on hemodialysis for just over 3 years now,. Dialysis is not as much fun as some folks say it is, but it will keep you alive longer. It's one of the things we get to go through since we were unsuccessful at killing ourselves as teenagers -and all of us "racers" certainly came close to doing that during our past lives. So we're along for the entire ride.

My advise is to find a living (directed) donor and get a transplant. If you want to talk about this, PM me and we can chat more.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your son. That's definitely worse than losing a parent. Wish I could help but I don't know what to say.

Ciao!
