#2, Blastolene Brothers--wildness on wheels--at Cars in the Park, Portland Art Museum, September 3, 2011

I found this on the Blastolene Brothers' Web site. I think it is about this vehicle: Rocket II by Michael Leeds. Debut at 2009 Grand National Roaster Show where it won best Engineered. Features blown Hemi, Stainless Kulgul independent Rear end.

Can you tell what this one is? I couldn't, at first, because there was just so much to notice.

I walked up to the front for a look from a different angle. It's a motorcycle!

The seat looks comfortable, but do you put your foot in those recesses that look sort of like ice cream scoops?

This is a hoot!

Wonder what that silver loop is? And the black cloth-covered box? Wonder if it's a parachute? You know, to help it slow down.

Wings on the motorcycle!

Does anyone know which engine this seems to be?

«Louis» doesn't know what the loop is, but the taillights are from a '59 Caddy.
