Having raced for decades and spectated at the flats several times, I cannot state strongly enough how impressed I am with the superhuman effort and accomplishments of this amazing individual. Many absolutely terrific people involved, including those who produced this wonderful documentary. Watching this piece of history only once simply will not suffice. Thank you kindly.

5.0 out of 5 starsInspiring Documentary

I saw this car the first time on an elementary school field trip to the state capital. I felt it was the most fasinating thing of the field trip. I went back a few years later and was surprised by the degradation I saw in the car. It is great to know now that it was rescued and still lives. A great story of an inspiring few individuals and an automobile.

I am so glad I stumbled upon this documentary. The film is about an incredible man and his incredible family and their accomplishments. Watching it is truly a learning experience. I am hungry for more knowledge about the family and the Mormon Meteor cars.

Very informative about the history of the Bonneville Salt Flats and how Mr. Jenkins was basically the person who started what we know today as the land speed records. I would say this is a must see for anyone who is a race fan and even for those who are not. Excellent documentory...

What a great show. Was actually sad when it was over. A great way to learn the earliest history of Bonneville Salt Flats racing. What an amazing man Ab Jenkins was.

This is an inspiring documentary even for a non-race fan. The dedication and innovation are like nothing you've seen before. This is practical science at its best.

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat film!

As a kid we always saw this car in the Utah State Capitol building but never really understood the historical significance of it until years later. Great film about a family (and I'm including the Duesenberg's and the Indianapolis crew too) and their vision of doing something impossible. I think even non-car people will like this. If you have any connection to Bonneville or racing, you'll love it!
