In January 2011, the Editor of Hot Rod Digest, Barry Hadley, met with Don Youngblood, owner and master builder of Youngblood's Hot Rods. The sole purpose of the meeting was to set up a schedule to shoot pictures of some of Don's Magnificent Hot Rods.
What transpired in that meeting was scheduling the photo shoot, but believe me, it was much more than that. By the end of the meeting, plans had been laid to build a Salt Flats Race Car.
February thru August of 2011 saw the plan turn into a frame, a body, an engine and it finally came together in August. Paint was added, engine was dyno-ed, and we were off to the Salt Flats.
Now with the H/STR record firmly under our belt, we are starting on a G/STR. That's a 'G' Class Street Roadster. Follow our next build and join us at Bonneville in August 2012.
