        Don't know if I'd put money on there timeline, but that group is probably capable of building the car..... If it does get done, I'd love to see it run the number as that would be freakin' crazy...

        I know the driver has gone 763mph on land, and way faster in the air, but man, if they can step up to 1000mph on land... crazy stuff.

        If it gets done, it will be spectactular - though I'm thinking the drivers compartment must be plenty large for Andy Green to be able to store his nutsack ;)

          wow.

          I wonder what tires they use. Todays engineering must be possible. It has been possible all along..but what tire company wants to make indestructible one time sales...

          killing the planet is a priority.

          the death rate and fairy tales cannot kill the nature left behind.

            No tires, aluminum wheels.

                I love them BMW riding Brits....

                ( Seriously they have a strange attraction to the sport founded in an incredible history... they still ride Bimmers... but I love them anyway... ( not that kind of love )))
