The inspiration for this project is the Spirit of America jet powered Land Speed Record vehicle which was driven by Craig Breedlove in his 1997 attempt to break the speed of sound on land. It is currently undergoing redesign and rebuild in preparation for an attempt to break 800 mph on land sometime in the future.
