EDITOR'S NOTE: I was fortunate to be in Black Rock, NV on September 25, 1997, and video tape Andy Green's successful runs in Richard Noble's ThrustSSC car as he drove into history. The Auto Channel was the only Internet entity on-location and the only website to present video of the two runs* (meanwhile, PEEDVISION was on the other side of Black Rock twiddling their twaddles waiting for the late and great Craig Breedlove to get the Spirit of America rolling - Peedvision never could get our concept right). The ThrustSSC runs were a great spectacle; being there was like stepping into a movie.
