Don't forget Athol Graham, who died in 1960 in "City of Salt Lake" as he hit 344.76 mph.

His widow and family have rebuilt the car.

Great walk down memory lane at Bonneville Salt Flats. As a young boy I remember seeing the "Mormon Meteor" on display in the Capital. Is it still there?

Obviously the captions on these pictures are a little old... Burt Munro died back in 1978.
