Yesterday was day two of the Speedster Reunion hosted by Speedway Motors. Many forum and well known Model T people, along with several Model T racers, speedsters and cars attended. This video shows us driving briefly in Lincoln traffic after completing the daylong tour that visited several eastern Nebraska towns and included a great air acrobatic show at the Seward Airport:
Thank you Rob H for sharing this wonderful look into the beginning of this years Speedster Reunion!
A bunch of wonderful cars there, especially the one Ford factory built speedster!
Again, Rob, THANK YOU!
Do drive carefully, and do enjoy! W2
Neat pictures Rob, the drone shot looks like a bunch of Hot Wheel cars.
If you can spot the Wild Cherry racer in the second row behind the blue Mercury body speedster you will see Hall of Famer Fast Frank Harris seated in our car. Thanks for the pics Rob.
Great to hear Fast Frank made the trip there
Has been a while since I saw a post from him here.
He drove his Jaguar here from Long Beach. They let him make a run with it on the hill where he clocked 10.224 @ 39 MPH. Fast Frank is royalty here. We are honored to call him our friend.
Bump to get rid of the spam
Thanks Rob great meeting you
I had a great time
A few more photos
Cool gathering of bad old cars. I like the speedster and A models. Tim
John little confused that picture with dean Robertson. Is a picture of his coupe with different engine and its in primer is this at another show other than speedway
Robert, He drove this car on the tour, this was our first stop. This car is fuel injected and not legal for the hill climb. It is a very fast truck.
Old age is hell but it beats the dirt nap. Mary and just had to be there to see our good friend Joel Young inducted with his over 200 m.p.h. Model T Ford powered streemliner on the salt flats. We averaged 74 m.p.h. driving our new supercharged Jaguar the 1788 miles there in two and a half days. Not to shabby for an 85 year old banger driver. Oh but we had cruise control so I could take a nap on the road. Mary is not quite yet 83 and still drives her stick shift Jaguar to this day as you can see in the picture below. I taught her how to drive my stick shift hot engined 1951 Ford back in 1954. More on that story later . . . . . .
If there are any workshops- it would be tremendous if someone could record them and perhaps make them available to those who cannot attend them due to great distances. There are some excellent speakers and sages of wisdom that speak on topics of interest to us speedster-guys. Personally, I would be happy to pay for whatever DVD may become available on such venues. - Ed
