Mickey Thompson: Fastest Man on Wheels

Mickey Thompson roared out of the hot rodding world of Southern California to become the "Fastest Man on Wheels," when his Pontiac powered Challenger One broke the 400 mph mark at the Bonneville Salt Flats. This didn't become an official record because of difficulties he encountered on a second run. The speed authorities require a second run and take the average for the record books. This promotional film captures the drama of his attempt.

Mickey Thompson's Challenger Comeback Version 2.5
Built in 1968, then in storage for more than 40 years. This land speed racer went 400 mph+ in 1968 testing with only 1800 hp. It'll have 4000-5000 for this year at Bonneville Speed Week! Rebuilt by Mickey's son, Danny Thompson, this is a great story of perseverance and a father and son project.
