What It’s Like Breaking The Sound Barrier
October 20th, 2017
It’s been 20 years since the Thrust SSC broke the record for the world’s record for fastest car at 760 mph, which is still the record today. But Bloodhound recently released a video to show what being in a car that breaks the sound barrier is actually like and what goes into setting that record.
It’s not as simple as you’d think between keeping the car in a straight line and stopping the car from those kinds of speeds. You can head to PowerNationTV.com for the whole video and stay tuned to see if Bloodhound SSC is able to shatter the record with their 10000mph run.
This week on PowerNation its time for Mopars! Katie features two survivors both owned by Ted Stephens of Stephens Performance. Both are unrestored, all original paint and interiors.
The 1968 Hemi Charger R/T is powered by the 426 Hemi and painted in a rare buffed Silver, that’s where the factory actually ran a buffer over the paint, the only color they did that with. It only has 12,000 original miles on it. The second Mopar is a 1969 440 Six Pack Road Runner with only 9,000 original miles. The interior is factory stock and you can see this muscle car on display at Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum in Sevierville, TN. Truly two rare gems from the muscle car wars, check it out this week.
