mini kenworth truck
Truck built with scrape metal and used parts people no longer wanted, air
horns, modified grill, air tanks, side grab handles pulled from old
kenworth at junkyard. Frame constructed from old commercial plant stand.
Front end taken from an allis chalmers. Rear drive axle out of a cub cadet
riding lawn mower. Work in progress.
If people are interested in purchasing the fiberglass body Ive still got
the mold could reproduce more just need to try and figure up what it would
cost, Looks to be around 1000.00 -1200.00 dollars to reproduce fiberglass
LEAVING SEMA (25 min of action!)
If you are into cars or trucks, then youll probably enjoy this video of all
the cars leaving the 2011 SEMA Show. 25 minutes worth of footage! There's a
couple burnouts in there too!
We stood out in the rain for over an hour to capture this footage, so
that's why it can be shaky at times.
Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
