As far as I know he still holds some land speed records.[/QUOTE]
I believe you are correct. In fact, I'm not sure if any of his records have been beaten, he broke the old records by such a wide margin when he set the new ones. I loved the scene where they had a pace car running beside him and the look on everyone's face when he really started to pick up speed.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
