The ones with patina had paint last year.  :o ;D Those are the friendliest pits you'll find anywhere.

Did you see these guys? A Canada & Texas crew.

Those pits go for miles  8).  I just did a slow cruise through the pits. 
Couldnt find my sunscreen for a few hours and got burned/exhausted somewhat early.
More pics to come. It wasnt bringing up my recent pics,  yet.
Was gonna stay at the bend in road but I had some fireworks to light off, didnt want to get busted 😉.
Uploaded a few more quick videos.

The west is on fire and you are shooting off fireworks? You should get busted. Maybe way out on the flats.

A guy I know called on his way back from Bonneville today and is interested in a 413 ci Dodge flathead six I have. It is something I know I'll never use and it will clear some space I need. He has plans for a big speedster and has the connections to make it work. He's in my local Inliner chapter so it won't be far away and I'll get to see it when it's done. 8)

I guess I dont need to share pics on here anymore.

You keep those pictures coming Rattiac! Where I live Bonneville isn't even mentioned. You guys that live out there or make the journey are giving me a bit of an education.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Well they are sideways.  Tried rotating it on my phone but still ended up that way.
Tons of video footage i'll be editing soon.
Speed-Demon backed up yesterdays run this morning of 475mph. 😶
Here "impound" is a good thing. Means ya set a record but have to back it up the next morning (within a few mph) to get the record.
Saturday had 20 vehicles in impound.

It is hard not to just keep taking pictures. :o You need a bigger lens than I have to get the ones you want.  ;D

2 years ago I picked up a Panasonic G7 (mirrorless) camera.  The kit came with a Macro (wide angle) lens and a 25x zoom lens. 
I used the zoom lens all day but it wasnt enough to see course #2 & 3 very well. It also came with lens filters (u.v. and such).
Since its soooo bright out there,  I attatched the
ND-8 filter to lessen the light. (Like sunglasses for cameras) . It helped greatly.
It was hard to see the camera screen so I locked the horizon (up/down) on the tri-pod and aimed/followed the cars with the camera.
Worked out great,  once I saw the footage.
Next year I'll be getting a 150-300 zoom lens.

I shouldve gotten closer to the starting line but was still trying to social distance.
Lessons learned for next time.

I love the sound. it's not like any thing else. Where else can you hear powerful engines pulling at full throttle for miles and miles?
The sun reflecting off the salt can produce some unusual sunburns. Like inside your nose or up your shorts or shirt sleeves or under your hat brim. Think one sun in the sky and one on the ground.
