For our rear axle, we need two steel wheels in 15" diameter with a 5 on 5,5" bolt pattern. Preferably narrow, like 4" or 4,5" wide. These are early ('40s / '50s) Ford wheels, also found on the F1 and F100 pickups.
Other sizes, makes and models can be looked at too, just show us what you've got.

We'd like to thank Auto Motor Klassiek (Classic Car & Bike) magazine for the article on our Trash-Can bellytank landspeed racing project. Here's a sneak preview but you'll need to buy the magazine to actually be able to read it. Look for the September issue in stores as of yesterday.

The apearrance of our Bellytank story in a Dutch Classic Car magazine called 'Auto Motor Klassiek' sure catches attention. We get numerous emails from people who never believed a team of Dutch guys were preparing to break a Landspeed Record. These pics were send to us by Menno who just returned from Speedweek, still shaking the holy salt out of his shoes ! By the looks of the pictures he had a blast overthere, thanks for the pics and kind words Menno ! It's these things that keeps us motivated !
We managed to book supermodel E. to show you our salty white shirts. To avoid any diet-issues they are only in L, with small logo on the chest, big logo on the back, both in fierce green !
Cost: a measly 15 euro; with free shipping in the Netherlands ! Outside NL, please ask !
Drop us an email if you'd like to dress like a hero, and take part in this excellent adventure !
That Rodsville quick change we scored at the Hayride in the UK quickly (pardon the pun) found it's way between the 70 year old Ford axlebells, and onto our welding table. Now we have to score the parts that need to go in it ! Lower shaft, yoke, rear cover, gears, bearings, gaskets...
If this looks like a request for a friendly sponsor...it is !
