Friends of the house

A real happy customer!

Jamie Mellish is a real well happy customer now and just finished his splittie! All BBT parts off course!

The car is a 1952 Crotch-Cooler Split Bug, 4” narrowed beam, dropped spindles, BBT Sprintstars and bumpers, 2” dropped springplates, and splines rotated to give a good drop (6 outers drop, 5 inners raised as far as Jamie could count them…:))

BBT “flies” @ 166MPH together with VW Heroe Darrell Vittone and his insane Karmann Ghia! !

Darrell Vittone (son of original Empi founder Joe Vittone for those who don’t know) attacks the land speed records in the 36 Hp class last couple of years and he does very succesful!

It’s no secret Darrell and Bob (from BBT Belgium) coming along very well with each other. So when Darrell asked Bob for some rare parts to make his Ghia running top^level again Bob was all help and supplied the necessary. This made Darrell such happy he prompt decorated his Ghia Doors with huge BBT stickers!!

Together we flew last Saturday morning (the BBT stickers and Darrell that is) @ 166mph over the dry lake race track and so Darrell broke his previous record of 162mph and stay absolutely world champion in this class!

Some atmosphere pictures!!
