    land speed record with a F-104? Maybe this year.

    The bitter taste of poor quality lingers long after the sweet taste of low price is forgotten.

    The spirit that drove the Arfons brothers lives on.

    Maybe just maybe the F 104 will capture one last record.

    I hope it's still fitted with the bang seat! The driver might need it!

    Interesting attempt from a nostalgia standpoint, but I think the next record is likely to go to Bloodhound SSC - a better financed and engineered effort...

    Pat,

    I hope that is not one of the 'down firing' models!

    Seems to me once Thrust SSC broke the sound barrier everything from here on out is anticlimactic.

    Everyone remembers Chuck Yeager, how many remember the first guy to break 1000 mph?
