This looks fast, even sitting on its trailer.

wow - did you talk your way into a little spin in this?

whoelius on August 17, 2010

He tried, kamalyn, but I didn't let him drive it.

I might let him drive my Bloodhound SSC in a couple of years though, if he's nice. I'd trust not1word not to drink-drive.

kamalyn on August 17, 2010

ah, that is a given, but you still can't trust him not to Drive and Shoot! But I'd prefer to try to get some shots of your fancy smancy vehicle than to ride in it!

And n1w - I think your location on this one might be off by a few hundred yards. ;)

spot on

And I thought my car was a zoom zoom.

I was lucky to get as close as I did, kamalyn. I wasn't about to get that familiar. It was pretty cool looking, though. whoelius was being a bit prickly that day.

Oh, hi, whoelius. That's a mighty fine rocket car you got there. If I promise not to wreck it, may I take it to the store for groceries?

kamalyn, I was worried that might happen. I'll move it in the morning.

Thanks, Tery!

I'd like to see you toodling down State Street in this, Spence. lol

Kind of explains the speeding ticket you got n1w !

not1word on August 19, 2010

Yeah, but in my defense, I do try and keep it below 200mph, Waldo. : D

Nice toy, but ... the pilote need to be contorsionist :)

not1word on September 20, 2010

You're not far off the mark, Phil. The cockpits on these things are just big enough for the driver/pilot, and not much else.

Somehow I keep expecting it to take flight and leave the trailer behind. Must have been something to see all this!

not1word on October 2, 2010

It would be a natural expectation, JF. It was pretty cool to be up close to them. Well, at least when they are at rest. In full running mode, they're way off across the salt, maybe close to a mile away.

Great shot ... amazing shape ... if it had wings it would fly haha

See ya from Sandy ;)

Jean Gregory Evans on February 26, 2011

I imagine it doesn't come off the trailer, but the trailer just falls away as it gets going. Really nice red, white and blue photo!

Hey there, Sandy. Sorry for my tardy reply. It's a far cry from your more placid watery by-ways, eh? The general shapes of your kayak and this aren't too terribly different, same idea, cut as thin a profile as possible to get somewhere smoothly.

Hi, Jean. I would not be surprised at your description being accurate. Might be a bit hard on it, though, as they leave off every bit that adds weight, so with no shock absorbers, it would be a jolt of a landing. Thank you for your nice comment.

Just realized you were off my radar, fixed it now n1w..

I've just downloaded the CAD files for the Bloodhound..Now I'm popping out to the shed! back in a while!
