If you always wanted to get into land speed racing here’s your opportunity, the car has race history at the flats back to the 50’s. Not 100% sure on who originally built the car but Larry Goldsberry, a member of the Roadrunners, got his hand on it some time around 57′ he ran it for a few years until the Valenzuela brothers purchased the car and rebuilt it to be more competitive. The brothers updated the running gear to a 301 chevy around 1964, it was at this time that it got a repaint and lettering/ artwork done at Roth studios. The brothers ran the car until the mid 70’s when they built a street roadster class car to run at the lakes and “The Mind Blower” got put on the back burner. The car spent the next 35 or so years in storage in the L.A. area until a buddy of mine found it about 7 or 8 years ago. At the time I had been helping several friends run their cars at the lakes and contemplating building my own, when the opportunity came along to purchase a car with real history I decided to jump in.
