EC, John Howard & The Bonneville Salt Flats

On July 20, 1985, Olympic Cyclist and Hawaiian Ironman winner, John Howard set a 152.2 Miles per Hour speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats near Wendover, Utah on July 20, 1985. He motorpaced behind a Vesco Streamliner that was modified by adding a large tail fairing to the vehicle. Thought it might be fun to draw my own version of it.
