Ready for Muroc

With a hand dolly and pick-up truck with a liftgate, Avi and I loaded about 1.5 Model A's into a truck without a smidge of help from the stout, present and churlish family that simply watched us load their driveway albatross. No matter. All you need is two guys and a hand dolly. Try getting a Kia into the back of a pick-up truck.

Today, Coop came over and we got a mishmash of parts into something that sort of looks like a vehicle. At this point, if I watch the weight, strap a lawn chair to the frame and install one of my puny four cylinder engines, the whole truck should weigh about the same as a Formula One race car. And the comparison to Formula One ends there. To compete on a performance basis, I would probably have to install BOTH four cylinder engines.
