The Dean Moon designed "Bonneville Boss" transporter, and mocked up 1976 land speed record rocket vehicle that were built to tour and raise money for the real thing to be built and run at Bonneville... it never came about though. 30 years in storage and now it bounces around at auctions.

Half what it cost to create
