The Bull Runners daniel and julians excellent adventure

I got a call this morning from Julian as Daniel was driving 90 mph west bound on I80 headed for Iowa's largest rocking chair. I think they said they are hoping its in West Amana Iowa. Thats their mid-day check point. Tonight they are staying in Omaha, Ne.
When they left Chicago this morning @ 8am they were in 17th place overall out of over 40 teams. Julian promised to post up pictures tonight but said that after 14hrs on the road @ 80-90 mph they are pretty wiped out @ night.

Julian commented that one of the teams has over 10k cash to buy their way out of traffic tickets.

I saw that one of those new Dodge Chargers that was kitted out to look like a police vehicle was the first to be stopped by police!

Good luck Daniel and Julian!

Yes, it is a 1984 rebuilt to be a new LHD Puma 110 with, I believe, a new galvy frame.

Two years ago I bought 50% of the items for sale. I think I spent less than 2k.
