Bonneville Again

Bob Immler sent a scan of the album cover of the recording that included Norm's Alfa running at Bonneville in 1960. The recording is mentioned in a previous post.

The ripped text is "Tenafly, N.J." Norm took the 1500 cc class at 114.35 mph.

This new discussion started when I sent a copy of an article from the Times to Bob Immler about Craig Breedlove, who ran a jet-powered car to several land speed records a couple of years after this. The car on the album cover is Mickey Thompson's. Bob recalled that Thompson was murdered and thought that he (Bob) might have seen the murderers fleeing on bicycles the morning of the event.
