Re: Jessi Combs RIP
I have seen a video special about this ďcarĒ. Yes, it was based on a F-104 fuselage. From what I saw, it was a rather low buck operation compared to the other Land Speed Record Jet Cars.
I love LSR cars, the wheel driven kind. The Nobel Thrust SSC effort proved if you put enough thrust behind something on wheels, you could break the sound barrier on wheels. But the Thrust SSC was light years ahead in technology compared to this car.
It would be a shame if JC got killed in a vehicle that never should have been going that fast to begin with.
