  2. She was 36. Jessi Combs—vehicle builder, racer, fabricator, TV personality, and all-around automotive legend—was killed on Tuesday in a crash while attempting to break her own land-speed record in southeast Oregon. She was 36. The crash occurred as Combs was piloting her jet-powered land-speed car on the Alvord Desert, a dry lake bed where several land-speed records have been set. According to local reports, the crash happened shortly after 4pm local time. Combs held the title of "fastest woman on four wheels" after setting a record of 398 mph in her jet-power

    too cool @Bugman last VW in our family was a 64 notcher it's in California somewhere last I heard. do you know a California VW guy named Izzy? We used to host VW owners from all over western north America at my brother's place in surrey bc for years when the VW shows rolled into town. Isadore used to be a pro bass fishing guy and made windows for vintage VW's very cool people and loves the ganja too.

    That things pretty sweet! I’d drive it like that, but I’m not the best at finishing my projects in a timely fashion... lol, would be a cool truck too, did they have to narrow the front clip to fit? i always thought it would be cool to put an old front clip on my 98 dodge dually.., but I think i would be out of my depth there.. good luck on the project!

    anyone else here build stuff?

    hmmm..... my friend dropped off a running rotax 247cc , 4000rpm engine today. i think it might be from a snowmobile. Trying to date the thing but should be at least 12HP , possibly more. Got a small buggy frame on the way I will probably chop/cut/rebuild...... snow is melting and darn near time to crack the shop door open and get to work on some projects

    @shaggyballs ya man, that guy did a real nice job on that build. Ours might be a little bit more of a redneck utility version LOL if money was no object..... the toys I would build for myself. One of those 100mile an out drag carts would be loads of fun but there is no where around here flat enough or straight enough for that kind of fun except out on the logging roads. I remember when we were younger and living in the city my friends raced go karts down at a local parking complex but there wasn't much real custom stuff, just racing carts all built to conform to track rules.

    You just never know do ya??? Those jet skis do go through a swamp and cat tails pretty well. Thanks for the name drop Tyne! Had to look it up..... I thought this video was worth a post. 215hp JetJon Construction Step by step build without the crap.

    hahaha the Jet john ..... that is another project that is underway. My partner in crime down on the coast has the jet ski on saw horses in the shop ready for a tear down. It is surprisingly easy to do this build and a whole lotta useful when it's finished..... if you like going fast in skinny water Ours is being built for hunting trips up north where the only access in are the rivers

    That looks like those guys have a lot of fun @shaggyballs! Thanks for sharing,lol, good to know there’s other areas I could acclimatize too .. you guys see those little welded aluminum boats they put the jet ski motors in? that is on my to do for sure!

    anyone else here build stuff?

    I can buy the tracks i need for my project. They are about 3grand a set for my yamaha grizzly and those same tracks would bolt right on to the rig i want to build. Out back I have 80 feet of 3 foot wide 1/2inch thick industrial conveyor belting that is the perfect material for building tracks so not sure if I want to custom make the tracks or spend the cash to buy the built ones.... we'll see when the time comes. There is a really cool DIY atv tracks set of videos on youtube that is quite useful to me too. @coastal, the 32 ford body could make a real awesome project for sure m

    anyone else here build stuff?

    I’ve got a few old Toyota and samurai frames with solid axles if ya need and parts @Tynehead Tom. i want to put an old 32 Ford body I found onto a solid axle Toyota frame and run a VW diesel in it.. got all the bits but I gotta build another house before I get to builds shop now... might be a bit,lol.., those track things look fun though.. saw they make some that bolt in where your wheels go for quads and trucks.. look pretty fun too!
