They could be referring the aircraft's thrust reversers.

We were told not to donate money to any place. Now there's "The Jessi Combs Foundation" asking for money? Just seeking clarification.

The way I read it was not to donate any money until they had the proper foundation in place. I suppose to make sure others didn't try and get their piece that were not involved directly with Jessi?

Given the reputation of the Peterson,I'm willing to bet that everything has been vetted and that it is legit.

Gonna see if I can talk some friends into going out there.I've never been,and I do want to see the place.

It is a cool place. I went there the first time in the mid 90s before the remodel. I go there now on occasion with my mother and she loves the place. Lots of interesting exhibits and the vault is very interesting. If your friends won’t go with you let me know and I will meet you there.

Run being submitted to Guinness,

Quote:
LOS ANGELES — Jessi Combs' attempt to set the record for fastest woman on earth will be submitted for a Guinness World Record at 531.889 mph, it was announced Saturday evening during an event held in her honor at the Petersen Automotive Museum. Combs died after her jet car crashed during the record attempt on a dry lake bed in Oregon. She was 39 years old. If certified, it would break the previous record of 512.7 mph set in 1976 by Kitty O'Neil.

Combs did two runs. The first reached 515.346 mph and the second one was 548.432 mph. The average (531.889 mph) will be submitted to Guinness.

The museum is hosting an exhibition "Jessi Combs: Life at Full Speed" Sunday through Wednesday (Sept. 25) that includes some of her motorcycles, helmets, racing medals and memorabilia from her TV career. On Thursday, the creation of the Jessi Combs Foundation was announced to educate, empower and inspire the next generation of female trailblazers and stereotype-breakers.

Combs was one of the most prolific and well-known automotive personalities of the last decade. She co-hosted "The List," which ran on Autoblog from 2011-2017. She also appeared in several TV shows, including "Overhauling" and "All Girls Garage."

Combs had set a four-wheeled record in 2013 in the North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger, reaching 398 mph. She went faster than 483 mph during attempts last year, but they didn't count as records because of mechanical issues.

In announcing her passing, Combs' family said in a statement: "Jessi's most notable dream was to become the fastest woman on Earth, a dream she had been chasing since 2012. Combs was one of the rare dreamers with the bravery to turn those possibilities into reality, and she left this earth driving faster than any other woman in history."

I went to the Petersen today. It was a wonderful memorial. It was the first display ever to be placed in the Penthouse. I also met Terry. Nice guy, living minute to minute. He has a lot of ideas for her foundation and a lot of things he wants to do for children.

Ran into christyle from pbb.

Some/much of the display will be at Off Road Expo in Pomona.

I took a few pics-
