O/T-November El Mirage Two Day Event Report

Ladies and gents we have Corvair content this month.

I know the car and it's owner but cant remember his name.

Early model with Brand X body panels...never saw the owner.

#711 6K hp AA/BFR in the lights at 215+ mph...not a record.

Top speed of meet so far is Nebulous Theorem III at 250+ mph.

Jack may be gone...his guys are still going screaming fast for E/M.

That first car looks like the so called 'Mystery Machine'. If it isn't, it sure must be a close cousin.

Fast speed of the meet #788 Nebulous Theorem III at 285+ mph.

That is with an E (3-4 liter) engine...flat out fricken hauling azz.

Only three ever 300 mph passes at El Mirage...next year for sure!!

The #788 streamliner 285+ mph pass was on gas not fuel with a 250 cube SBC mouse motor...remarkable!!

Lots of good racing footage in this video...look for the Furd straight six Redneck Streamliner at the 3:55 mark.

Curious, Phil did that Redneck Streamliner have a Tonneau Cover, or an open bed?
After Nebulous Theorem, it kinda seemed to have the second smallest dust plume following it.
Would have liked to see it more of it, and from a bit more distance.

Don't know all that much about the truck classes...still learning coupe classes.

I believe a tonneau cover specifically put you in the modified category...BUT.

Got out the book to find tarps and panel covers are allowed in Production.

So what is the difference you say...tonneau is an aerodynamic advantage.

Bed caps also production okay...I know I know that don't make any sense.

Redneck Streamliner is the rulebook production pickup featured picture.

I've been at this almost twenty years...the rulebook is still a mystery.
