NO SLEEP ´TIL BONNEVILLE

tom[1]

This guy is one of my best friends and known to fullfill his dreams! As a hard core hot rodder from the tender age of 15 he has built a long list of very cool and fast cars in his career! From traditional 20´s and 30´s flathead powered Ford to 50´s Chevys he got to a 50´s Chrysler New Yorker that he restored and converted into a race car to race and finish the Carrera Panamericana a few years back - without sponsors!

Dream one! Done!

Dream 2! Bonneville!

Starting with a P-38 belly tank he found in the middle of the USA he built a lakester at his home in Bavaria.

There were quite a few people trying to hop on the publicity train and so called organizers, friends and sponsors that promised big things! In the end it was just him and no sponsors to finish the project!

After a call from him 3weeks ago I was on it, booked a flight and will be "CREW CHIEF" for our 2-3 people crew! Bonneville  is only 4weeks away! What a cool opportunity!

Let me tell you this, it is a bavarian tank not a german tank!

If you need US car parts or decoration check out Tommy´s shops!

He is the owner of both:

BARRETTA PARTS

and

KONFEDERATE KLASSIKS

If you feel the need to sponsor last minute feel free to e-mail me or him! We will mention you on the blog and put a sticker on!
