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!!

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 !
