We are the Trashers, a Dutch Car Club. We build, modify, kustomize and drive all kinds of old vintage US cars. So what's the deal ? Well...since the 1920's speed addicts try to push their vehicles to the limits on salt flats and dry lake beds like El Mirage and Bonneville, USA. And that's exactly where we want to go too!
But...instead of using a high-dollar, computer-controlled car we like to break a land speed record like they did in the fifties, using a vintage flathead engine for power and the best possible body to put this in; an all aluminum fighter airplane droptank... Yes you heard it right ! We're planning to go to the salt lakes with our bellytank racer!!!
And that's where you as a reader come in. We sure could do with some funds!
So, if you like speed, vintage cars and share the same enthousiasm in breaking a speed record as we do...
Join in and make a donation to our bank number on the right. Or buy yourself a "Trash-Can" t-shirt or some cool stickers. We'll keep you informed about the progress of 'your' project!
Thanks for making our dream come true!!

Here's another look at that rear end. We're contemplating a early Ford banjo, but considering the desired end ratio, we'd need a quickchange, and they're mucho dinero !

  1. Hi,
    My name is Frank, I'm a member of "les Triplettes de Bonneville".
    Visit us at
    Our French team has set 9 motorcycles records back in 2008 and this year at Bonneville.
    Let me wish you many positive things for your bellytanker project !! Regarding your quick-change, we will have to deal with the same problem for our 2010 entry. A friend of mine told me there's a "simple" way to covert a standard rear end into a quick-change unit, but he could'nt manage to find the old HOT-ROD article where it was explained !!... I'll keep you informed when we find it. Cheers, Frank.
