Boys of Bonneville Documentary Clip
This clip is an excerpt from the new documentary, Boys of Bonneville, all
about salt-flat racer Ab Jenkins and his Mormon Meteor car, who together
broke many land speed records that still stand today.
John Cobb and E.T. Eyston Racing at the Salt Flats
Film from Collection A0185 Joseph Howard McGibbeny Audio Visual Collection.
This film is titled "the Mormon Meteor does it's thing." The problem is
there is no Mormon Meteor in this film. This instead looks to be John R.
Cobb and Capt. George E.T. Eyston Racing their cars, the Railton and
Thunderbolt at the Bonneville Salt Flats. This item is protected by

Art Alfons "The Green Monster"
The most famous "Green Monster" was powered by an ex-F-104 Starfighter
General Electric J79 jet engine, producing 17,500 lbf (78 kN) static thrust
with four-stage afterburner, which Arfons purchased from a scrap dealer for
$600 and rebuilt himself, over the objections of General Electric and the
government, and despite all manuals for the engine being classified top

remember, the manifold pressure used today for takeoff with 100-octane
low-lead fuel is not anywhere near what could be used with the wartime,

Indian Motorcycle: The Spirit of Munro
Between the years of 1926 and 1961, one man from a small town in New
Zealand dreamed of setting a land speed record on a 1920 Indian Scout. In
1962 at the Bonneville salt flats that man's dream finally came true.
To honor the past and power the future, Indian Motorcycle built the Spirit
of Munro, an all-metal tribute bike which would house the new Thunder
Stroke 111™ engine. On May 5, 2013 the bike was run on a dry lake bed in
California. A tribute to the great Burt Munro, and a celebration of the
Indian Motorcycle that is yet to come.
ABOUT THE SPIRIT OF MUNRO:
Fully custom-built, the Spirit of Munro is an all-metal tribute to the
racers and mechanics throughout history who have collectively built the
legacy of record-breaking racing performance and strength that is Indian
The motorcycle is named in honor of Burt Munro's "Munro Special," the
historic 1920 Indian Scout that broke the under-1000cc land-speed record in
1967 at the Bonneville Salt Flats as famously portrayed in the motion
picture "The World's Fastest Indian."
The Spirit of Munro was constructed by Jeb Scolman of Jeb's Metal and Speed
in Long Beach, CA. It was designed from the ground up to house the new
Thunder Stroke 111™ engine and showcase its awe-inspiring power and

new class world-record at Bonneville in early October 2012.
Burt Munro's 1920 Indian Scout
This is the 1920 Indian Scout built and driven by Burt Munro. Jay Leno on
commentary. Three times during the '60's it set the World's fastest flying
mile record for motorcycles under 1000cc at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
This is not the reproduction used in the "The World's Fastest Indian"
starring Anthony Hopkins, but the actual bike that set the record.
Fortunately this is the second year of the Concours d'Elegance to feature
motorcycles on the green. This year they featured the salt flat racers and
their contribution to Hot Rodding. I was very lucky to see and hear this
amazing piece of history.

Or buy "The World's Fastest Indian" because it's a true story. It's one of
my favorites, and surely will not disappoint any gear head. Anthony's
perfectly cast for the role.
