Jack Costella’s Nebulous Theorem Streamliners: Supersonic Speed Machines
Jack Costella is one of those guys that you have to meet to believe.
He designs tiny ground effects streamliners that shatter records everywhere they run.
His work inspires all involved in the world of land speed machines.
Costella bases his unique designs on what he calls his Nebulous Theorem which simply explained means Do your own thing and not what the other guys are doing.
“I build my cars by the five “L’s”–long, low, little, light and languid like Nicole Kidman, and they need to be beautiful too. I try to get my cars to fly on the ground, trying not to touch the ground. I try to optimize the aero package by creating a small picture.
The Costella team is one of the most successful of all the vehicles running at Bonneville for the last 20 years.
The team has set over 100 National and International land speed records.
They’re showing four of their super sleek streamliners to the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, April 30 at Half Moon Bay Airport.

#6060 Nebulous Theorem VI
