Dream Machines 2009 Photos!

Well, the 2009 version of the Half Moon Bay Dream Machines was spectacular as usual. You just don't know what you will see there, you know you will see something to knock your socks off. For me, it was Milo from here at Hotrodders. No kidding, he is a great guy and we had quite a few laughs. Se then went looking for fish eyes in paint. Just kidding. But honestly Milo, his wife and mother were there and it was just great putting a face to Milos rambling squiggly lines. JUST KIDDING MILO lighten up.

Well, here are some photos.....

Brian

This is right before Milo cracked me in the jaw for all the times I ticked him off on the forum! JUST KIDDING!

How about Tony Nancy's top fuel dragster.

Brian



And a little Blown Chevy rail. I love the valve cover spacers to clear the roller rockers.

Really was a great day despite some cooler weather. It must have dipped down into the 70s brrr considering the wind chill ...

I'd agree a highlight was meeting MartinSR, a fellow Hotrodders.com member in person. Over the years we have both participated in body & paint threads with the same motivation being to keep the DIY spirit alive and insisting the new to the hobby can get it done so do it !!

Cool stuff Milo, post more. I hope to get mine reduced this afternoon and get them on. How about those "unicycle drags"? OH MY GOD that is the lamest thing I have ever seen! Mikey, Dewey and Dan and I watched that crap last year and thought the same. But I thought maybe it was an off day or something. I was wrong, that is the LAMEST, BORING CRAP I have ever seen claiming to be exciting. Watching someone wax their car is more exciting!

Now, my son and I have came up with some ideas to liven it up a little. First, they could "Joust" with a pipe welded to each "bike" and just go at each other at full speed. The other thing would have been to just run around that grassy area being chased by the monster truck! I would pay to see that!

Brian

We were there twenty minutes and I got my "worth ticket price" experiance I always look for. The Land Speed Record area with a bunch of streamliners on display. These guys are awful nice and will expain about anything you could ever ask of them. Just amazing machines and I was having a great time learning about them. Then they took it up a knotch and asked if my son and I want to get into one of these machines! OH MY GOD, I am not kidding, I could have gotten out and walked back to my car and drove home and been happy! I got into this 367 mph streamliner and he put the canopy on and locked it into place. I could have stayed in there all day making vrrrm vrrrmmm sounds. OH MY GOD it was awsome!







Here is one where you lay prone. This one went 207 on who 50 cc motors as I remember.


Here is the side of the car with it's little thingies that break up the air on the surface of the car.

This was the fastest motorcycle in the world.

Amazing work of art and machine.

This is the motor that drops and raises the "outriggers" until it is up to speed to balance on it's own.

Here is the trailer they to use carry it. The guy told me they build the trailer first because they are no fun and when the car is built they don't want to have to wait.
