The Road to Bonneville
The Road To Bonneville is an epic movie by Brian Darwas. In the movie we follow hot rod builders Ken Schmidt and Keith Cornell of the Rolling Bones as they travel 2,300 miles through ten states from New York to Nevada in their famous 1932 Ford Coupes The Wicked Sisters.
Pit next to The Hop Up Race Team and The Bean Bandits at what most people consider to be the birth place of hot rodding, The Bonneville Salt Flats. Watch Dan Parker and the other members of The Rolling Bones Race Team hit the salt for Speed Week. Get on the ground with Keith Cornell while he swaps the gears out of a vintage Halibrand rear and stand next to Ken Schmidt as he gets under the hood to re-jet carbs between runs! Peer over the shoulder of renown hot rod photographer Peter Vincent while he shoots two of the world's most beautiful hot rods in one of the world's most beautiful settings, and witness The Rolling Bones hop in George Poteet's '32 roadster and hit speeds of up to 175 miles per hour!
Get an in depth look inside the shop at Greenfield Center in New York. Go down to the Maxton Monster Mile in North Carolina for a test run, and travel all the way across the country to Bonneville for the time trails at Speed Week. This film is a true lesson in hot rodding that is not to be missed!
