The original SoCal Streamliner built by Alex Xydias, (founder of SoCal Speed Shop) and driven by Dean Batchelor, broke 2 speed records at "Bonneville".  196 M.P.H. in 1949 and 210 M.P.H. in 1950.  Those speeds were an incredible achievement for that era, which makes the Streamliner a very important piece of automotive history.
