This year, I was lucky enough to assist Paul Heady in his try at bettering the Vintage Fuel Altered class record that he currently holds. Paul is a friend of Clay Slaughter, who, with Mike Galli were going to meet me at the Salt Flats anyway, so when Clay found out Paul needed a hand this year, he volunteered us all as crew. Unfortunately, we came close, but didn't quite beat it.
Paul Heady's '34 Coupe
After a few days of tryin' we exhausted all our available options, so Paul decided to throw in the towel. With my time free, I was able to check out what others were up to and get some photography done. Here's some of the stuff I shot on the salt and in Wendover:
Okay, okay: the flames might be a bit much, but I liked the shot anyways.
On Sunday night, it pissed down rain, and on Monday, there was a pretty deep lake at the end of the access road, so a bunch of cars were left there, rather than salt dipped. Gee, darn: That won't make a good photo at all!
Always been a favorite of mine
Sorry there's so may shots of this car, but it just kills me. Couldn't be helped.

Thanks tons to Paul and crew for putting us up, (or should I say putting up with us). Months later, I'm still thinking about what a great trip it was. But then, I suppose that I could say that every year. Yet another thought to keep one warm through the winter months... Next year.
