More 36hp Data supplied by Burly Burlile...thanks Burly.
There are some gaps that Burly would like filled so if you think you can add to the charts below just add them to this "Sticky" and it will be consolidated into the charts as and when.

Did any of you guys see the vintage film (converted to digital by Aussie Dubbers) of Dick Bieth back in 1961 at Bonneville with his 36hp powered Beetle LSR (complete with bicycle chain-driver Pepco roots blower on top)?

It's great classic stuff, email Burly for a digital copy...

Hi Tom, Yes Burly has sent a copy and "wiggy" is converting it for inclusion in "The History of Vintage Speed" sticky here. Smile

BTW if you want to add any of your experiences to the history topic...short and concise or long and rambling, you'd be most welcome. Wink
