At that time it was wheel driven. I was looking for the frist land speed record to be set at Bonneville. Prior to this event the record had been set at other places around the world.

I had to google it, I don't ever remember seeing that car. If I did I thought it was much later, holy crap the Thunderbolt ran 345 in 1937!





Wild, just plain wild!

I knew it was before 63 because I was there then, and Spirit of America set a record but was not wheel driven and the brits raised cane about that. I didn't think it was in the forties because of the war. I had no idea when it was. I have hundreds of pictures from the salt flats , a buddy of mine had run out there up until a couple years ago. I guess if these are going to keep getting harder google is going to get a workout, it will be like Dave W said might learn a little. My trouble would be retaining it.

P.S. That's one heck of a looking car for 37, good going brain, I slept too late again this morning.

Bob, sometimes I think I LEARN more by NOT googling it. I sit back and think more, I read other posts, I learn a little. This case is different, I WILL remember this, I am in awe, that car was so far ahead of it's time it isn't funny. But of course we aren't seeing other "land speed record" cars being built from the day, maybe it was the norm?

But anyway you look at it, I am in awe, absolutely amazing work of art.

Brian Is there a time limit to say if you are right or not?
You are the one that got an answer right or wrong, and I see no reason for it to be wrong, Take the floor so I can have something to take to bed with me, lay awake half the night think of the right answer only to sleep in and have someone else come up with the right answer.

Ok, what was the option on a 1969 Shelby GT500 called that included an extra engine oil cooler?

Trivia

In September of of 1935 Malcolm Campbell moved his Land Speed Record defense to Bonneville and upped the record to just a hair over 300, despite shredding tires and other issues (both ways on the back-to-back runs)

However, even if I'm right, I'll cede the right to ask the next question to someone else, as I can't think of a single good question to ask!

LOLOLOL, it's a Shelby question. My first question I had rolling around in my head was a Cougar one, sorry.

The question is what was the option on a 1969 Shelby GT500 called that included an extra engine oil cooler?

Is "Twin turbos" an answer? If it is, nope, try again.

I know that Ford used a power steering cooler about that vintage cars with the 428/429/460 motors, but the key words are 'engine oil'.
