Eager to hit the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats in something with a little more flare than a rocket with wheels? Then get your hands on this 1952 Buick Super Riviera that goes by the name “Bombshell Betty.” Designed and built by Jeff Brock, this 6-time land speed record holder is chopped and decked raw steel with a Buick Roadmaster 320 cubic inch straight eight. On its last trip to the Salt Flats, “Bombshell Betty” set a new record, topping out at 165.735 mph before being retired. But why Bombshell you ask. Take a close look at the scoop feeding the dual carbs. Got it? Good. Here’s a clip of your new car in action:

Whether you’re talking about their knives, everyday carry gear or collaborative pieces, every single thing that bears The James Brand name is built-to-last, incredibly useful and purposefully designed. While we’re incredibly fond and reliant on all of their options, The Elko–their most minimal pocket knife–is our current favorite. Designed to attach to your keychain / EDC with the included titanium keychain, this small but mighty Swedish 12C27 stainless steel blade with anodized aluminum handles is the perfect tiny blade for all your everyday needs. If your EDC doesn’t include The Elko, you’re missing out, so get yours today.
