    Default Eddie Hill

    First man in the 4s...
    He is a corvetteforum member (forum handle fourfather ) and once in a while i see a post by him.

    a couple days ago he posted on the anniversary of his record setting run: 4.99 @ 288mph on 4/9/1988.

    I recalled a couple years back that he traded a Lola race car that he had for an Ariel Atom, a Ford GT, and another car, so I asked if he still has the Atom. His response:

    http://forums.corvetteforum.com/1573717609-post52.html

    The link in his response says he turned the fastest lap at Hallet with his Atom :lol: . Simply awesome at 74 years of age.

    He has two cars there that I've lusted after for years... the GT40 (kit or new edition) and an Ultima (prefer closed cab though).

    I hope when I am 74 that I am that cool.
    Nice selection of fast toys...
    The Atoms that run at Hallet are smokin fast.
    We have been invited to come run with them several times.
    Atomfest 09 record held by Eddie was 120.6 seconds on slicks. That's rollin.
    Faster than most of the sport bikes that run there.

    I say Atoms are fast.... but I think 7's are faster...
    I heard that a particular 7 named Mojo Ran at Hallet in 07
    on street tires and an open Diff (1 wheel wonder)
    and turned 94.6 seconds.
    Of course the guy driving was 1/2 Eddie's age and
    probably 1/2 as smart....

    That is awesome, true racer at heart.
    It was a two-seater open car that would do anything you could want a two-seater open car to do. You could go away in it for the weekend or you could race it. - GRAHAM NEARN

    Hello, folks,

    I'm Eddie Hill, "FourFather", and a brand new rookie member here. Thank y'all for all the kind words, warms the old ticker.

    I don't own a 7, but sometimes I Google myself just to see if anyone has anything to say about my rides, or me, and saw this thread. About this ad-
    http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/index.php?page=95

    And the ad had a typographical error, where they listed my Atom track record as "120.6 seconds", which would be over two minutes, and dead slow.

    And it should have read the way the TraqMate datalogger shows it in the picture in the ad, 1:20.6, which is, of course, One minute and 20.6 seconds. The ad is now corrected.

    And I have since turned three consecutive laps in the One minute, 19 second range--turning corners is pretty new to me and it is taking a while to get the hang of it, but HUGE FUN!!

    Thanks for listening to my first post-

    Eddie
