Rick Herity from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, along with his friend Gene Pustovyk, has posted quite a few interviews they did at the 2010 World of Speed of various VW land speed racers with an emphasis on 36hp Challengers.

Just go to You Tube and type in 36hp Land Speed Challenge. This YT area will also show a couple of the Blackline Boys 36hp dyno run videos, the classic Dick Beith 36hp record run black and white film documentary from 1961 and Mel Ellis's 1962 story of his race journey to Bonneville with his 36hp oval window. You can also access the interviews by going to 'jrvolks' as the provider.

Enjoy...............and thanx Rick and Gene for the effort!
