The picture of the motor in the car looks odd. Forgive me if I am wrong, but is that typical in drag cars to have the headers going forward and over the top like that? Is that how they are going to be mounted, possibly because of space needed? Or, is it temporary, because I see you still have the hook on it yet?

Because of the slight delay in compression from a Turbo, from the exhaust driving the Turbo, instead of RPM's from the likes of a Blower, why chose the Turbo power instead, when in drag racing 1000th's of a second counts. Is this for classification restrictions?

Turbo lag is not the issue it used to be in drag racing anymore. What with rev limiters, trans brakes and nitrous to spin up the turbo. Plenty of really mean turbo cars out there now days.

Is there a pressure gate, or something of this sort to relieve the excess pressure in the Turbo System. If I remember, it was called something with the term "Gate". I remember the loud pops it created.

With the advancements of computer controls for the boost turbo lag is practically a thing of the past. You can launch the car at a pre-determined amount (mainly because of small tires) and then ramp it up to maximum or whatever the track will hold. This car will utilize a single 88mm tubro and the exhaust will exit through the left fender behind the tire via a 5 inch pipe. The headers are essentially designed in an upward fashion to allow a horizontally mounted radiator with dual electric fans. I considered methanol but it is very caustic and more costly. Methanol does eliminate the need for a cooling system because it does not get hot. Most running it remove the freeze plugs. Thank you all for the words of encouragement. Bill Weaver

Ken 11.1 sec @126. Tranny only cost $18,000 if you blow it. Damn wheel I scratched is like $2,000 this is more expensive than Trap shooting. Next plan is re-program computer and get new down pipes. And roll cage needed for 10 sec car. AJ

I have not run this yet. The build is exciting though. This combination should run in the low 8's high 7's around 190 MPH. All of this is dependant on the composition of the stones; brass or composite! The trans is a JW glide and it is capable of handling 2000 HP. The CI of this package is less than 350 and projected to make in the 1500 HP range. Take care all. Bill

I know the fun is in the build, but you could just buy one of these. I imagine it would run similar times, but would still be street legal. Oh, it might cost a little more, but you would be saving by not having to haul it to the track. LOL

Thank you guys and gals for the encouraging words. I have built many street/drag cars for others but I have always dreamed of having my own drag/racecar. I decided to do that hence the build. I have restored many Mustangs over the last 35 years and still keep a shop full of them in various capacities. I love the racing but the concors restorations are dear to me also. There is a lot of gratification in returning one of these cars (regardless of the lineage) to pristine condition. Just one more thing; I am posting a couple of pics of my next driver. I wanted one for a while and finally found it. Not too many of these left it seems.

BAFLSTAND, I sold one of those six years ago and it was a GT and had a 351 in it. Body was in really good shape but needed paint. I let the guy have it for $700.00. He stuck a battery in it, put a quart of transmission fluid in the oil and ran it for 15 minutes. Drained the oil, put a new filter and oil in it and drove it home. I sure wish I had kept it now but at the time I had too many cars in the yard. Two 89 Mustangs, 66 mustang, 78 TransAm, 74 Grabber GT, two 51 Chevy PU's plus my wife's mustang and my 97 f150. I got tired of listening about it all so cleaned house. I still have the 66 and wish I still had the Grabber. LOL Jackie B.

Baflstang - I see it is a GT, but what is the powerplant? 351, 428, 429? I have my eye on one sitting behind a barn, with a 428SCJ 4 speed. Custom paint (old and worn), custom interior (equally old and worn), aftermarket wheels and tires, and has been mostly sitting behind the barn for about 25-30 years. It was used as a farriers truck for a few years, then when his back gave out, as a farm truck/transportation until there were too many kids to haul in it, then it got parked. It gets flashed up occasionally, but hasn't been on the road (officially) for years.

I am also trying to get the original owner of a 1966 Bronco Sport Custom to at least talk to me about selling it. It has a full size tin top, the bucking bronco interior, bucket seats, 289, 3 speed floor shift, dealer installed flares on all 4 corners, 1100-15 tires on factory 10" steel wheels, 9" rear end and Dana 44 front. It has been parked in his yard since his mid 30s daughter quit driving it when she was 20 or 21.

This Ranchero is equipped with a 351-C with a 2 barrel carb. I plan on leaving it in but may convert to a 5.0 EFI with an AOD. The EFI conversions are simple and make a fun ride even better. The 428 you are referring to must be a 68-69. I have seen a couple of these but they are quite scarce. Definitely a good buy and collectible. The last ride on my "bucket list" is a first generation Bronco. My current driver is a '90 Bronco with 400K miles. It is ready for the road anytime and has truly been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. Good luck on your chances. Where are you located? I found a '70 Torino GT convertible pacecar. There were several (6-8) of these made and they were all identical. 429 CJ, AT, AC, PS, PDB,POWER SEAT, TACH, ROLLBAR, EXTRA COOLING, ETC. Bill Weaver

My plans are to paint wednesday. It will probably take the rest of the winter to get it back together and be able to get it out once the salt is off the roads. Birdtracker

I mentioned one more vehicle in my "bucket list" and it just appeared. I found it sitting in a yard where I was working and it had a for sale sign in the window. It is a 1976 BRONCO EXPLORER with a 302, PS, PDB, and AT. Very minimal rust and no structural issues. Look out beach!!!!!!!!!

Here's my toy, an 89 Vette 383 stroker. I "beat the heat" in the second pic. Got a T-shirt to prove it!. Lingenfelter super ram intake, comp's cam, headers, 355 positraction w/ beefed 700r4 trans. A real sleeper!

I find it interesting that people doubt the HP that can be made these days. I quit motorcycle drag racing in the mid 90's. My funny bike with turbo and 4 stage nitrous made 1000 HP on a superflow dyno with a 82 cu in engine. Of course it was hard keeping it together. At the time billet heads and various parts available now were not there to be had.

Yeah the stuff now a days just blows my mind. 400 hp out of a streetable Ford Lima 2300, iron block NASCAR motors turning 9 grand, sure is different than the 50s, or the early 90s for that matter.

WOW!!!!! A lot of nice rides!!!! Baflstang, I'm not a Ford man, but you do beautiful work....should be a great car when you are done. I've been drag racing for 30 years & am racing a 73 Dodge Dart with a 496cid big block, 2spd, & 33x15 rubber on it....it was my high school car!!!! With a few mods... I am looking for a 68 to 76 dart body to build one with my son (prefer 68 or 69). If someone knows of a shell for sale....let me know....or if you know of a company that builds a fiberglass body would be great... Thanks!!!!! Dick

So, what color Red are you going to paint it, if I might ask ..? I hear Candy Brandy Wine looks really good in the sun ... I like it enough that I am thinking about having my Plymouth painted that color and it don't need paint ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
