Recreation of the City of Burbank Streamliner that was lost in a crash in 1955. The original landspeed race car was built in 1952 by 22 year old California hot rodders, and was the first United States car to successfully break international speed records. Ignition Arts worked with Dave Thomas (car owner) and Bill Davis (original builder) to recreate the car. Images taken prior to a run at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
