Repost from Phil Reeve: "Jet cars are not everybody's fave, but they provided a lot of entertainment at both Mackay and Townsville tracks in the late 80's early 90's. Here Rosco McGlashan and Chuck Haynes and the late Ansel Horton do their stuff. Rosco was always the ultimate showman and one hell of a great bloke." #throwbackthursday ... See MoreSee Less

One of Ken Warby’s old Billy carts.

Going to Adelaide international raceway was a ritual with my dad and brothers back in the day , I loved the too fuellers the jet cars and the drag trucks I remember when when rosco connected a car to his jet dragster on the infield which had containers of fuel in it and blew it up with his jet engine.

Lotta history there.

Great picture of Aussie Invader 1 when we disguised her for a UK car commercial in 1987 for the Vauxhall Belmont SRi. Filmed at Lake Deborah in WA. Another pic from the book. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to Jenny & Keith Lovatt for the pic.

Do you know what happened to AI3? I worked at the museum that bought it and it was sold at auction

I remember when my dad Mike Read helped you with some fibreglass work on the Aussie invader many years ago. I still have 2 signed posters you did for my son Kyle

Can’t wait for the book. When is it coming out?

I was fascinated by this pic for years!! Used to have it on the back of my bedroom door and look at it every night!! Back where my speed addiction began. Have had this taped together since about 1988ish I think?? I have a alot of cool personal pics Mark you could use for the book, we should catch up. Let's organise a time at Rosco's place soon. I am overdue a catch up.....I am still waiting on that cheque in the mail Rosco?? 🤔🤔🤔 Did it get lost maybe?? 🤑🤑🤑

Looking good Roscoe!!!

Did Batman get his front spoiler back afterwards?

This reminds me of the Ford ute advert. When they comment must be stuck in 3rd

She looks awsome.

What was the reason for disguising it? Just to cover sponsors and make it look like a LSR car?

That’s a pretty good ad 😂

it looks like conventional tires , am i wrong ?

What a crack-up I'd never heard of a Vauxhall Belmont before. I was kinda picturing this.....

Great ad

Another great photo that will be in the book. Cheryl always describes herself as the “Woman behind the man.” She is not, she is a big party of my achievements. I couldn’t have done half of what I have without her. ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Every year at about this time I get the chance to meet with one of our country’s most caring and giving charities. I have been a patron for this amazing group for over ten years, they are known as “Making Life Better” and these amazing folk do just that by supporting people in serious need of help. Their annual golf day is their biggest fundraiser and has a following of many high profile companies and individuals. As part of my teams contribution a group visit is auctioned off and the highest bidder arranges a day to meet and great my team and learn more about our car and world beating project. These guys are the salt of the earth! ... See MoreSee Less

If anyone missed the program which was shown on SBS, it’s on their demand app now episode 8, series 5

Hi Rosco, I wanted to share this with you, this was an old photo of me while I was doing my apprenticeship in engineering, I was working for Kentin Engineering at the time. It popped up in my photos and thought I’d share. I believe we were manufacturing some brakes or something for your rocket car at the time. Cheers and good luck for the future

Actually on SBS VICELAND - Channel 31 according to the West Magazine.

When does the run happen ?

Great episode Looked like it’s few year old though?

Well done, great show and an insight to what needs to be achieved to fulfill your dream Rosco. Good Luck and go for it 🇭🇲🇭🇲🇭🇲🇭🇲

Good luck 🍀 She is a beautiful LSR car!! Get that record and speed!! Gary Gabelich was a good friend of mine so I have a good sense of how difficult it is to get that number but he always believed it was possible!!

Yes I just watched it after doing my own tests with my 50lbs twin Pulse Jets.Aussie ,Aussie ,Aussie.Go Rosco.

We just watched this. Rosco still has the passion. Last time i saw Rosco, Kerry Trutwein was with us and asked us to introduce her to him. We were at the airport can't remember where we were off to but Kerry was there.

Great job guy’s, was an awesome insight into the build. Very enjoyable watch. 👍🏼

Just watched movie The World's Fastest Indian. If Burt Munroe can do it so can you Rosco.

Rosco When you find a location and a date I am sure you will let us all know something on my bucket list that needs to be ticketed cheers

Great show and project Rosco. Look forward to seeing you make the 1000mph. Cheers, Smokey Joe.👍

Yep, sure was. Just watched it. Impressive machine that I hope will be racing some time soon!

Just watched the SBS show. Wow wow wow

Very impressive piece of engineering, and I'm sure that there is a lot more to it than was on the show. All the best!

Whens it on again I missed it

I can't even imagine anything going 1,000 MPH on land. What keeps the thing under control enough to keep the front end at the front? I know it's got to be the aerodynamics, probably mostly of the tail. Also, the wheels & their bearings must be some major works of scientific technology. The things must be spinning SO fast even if they're really large in diameter.

Very good show can’t wait to see it happen

It's on tonight in Adelaide, can't wait to watch it. Go Rosco 🇭🇲🇭🇲🇭🇲

Does anyone know if this will be shown in the USA? Maybe I missed it? I think I'd like to watch it but I don't know how to look things up using my remote as as little keyboard. My Smart TV is smarter than I am. HAHA iJeff in his 175 MPH Car in the Inaugural Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Great episode, so interesting!

Fantastic program. When will it be raced.

Now that's a mean machine - and GO THE ASSIE TEAM !!.

Watching it now. Great stuff! 👍
