Jerry, thanks for the kind words about my '60. I see your a wing nut as well, man that thing is wild!!! Love the way you did the wheel covers and the side pods. It's hard to pull off a "nice" custom '60, and my friend, you have done it!

Anonymous, Thanks but this car has never been to the state of Washington. It is a Minnesota custom finished in 2010, and 12 years in the making. The car has been to Iowa three times for the drag racing sponsored by the Black Knights. I show it, drive it, and drag it. Thanks again for the kind words. "Happy Trails"

How did you do in that race against the GTO? Just curious. Beautiful car!

Hi Mustang girl, We raced twice we are 1 for one. I think that GTO has up-dated (souped-up) a 427 cu. in..He also has sticky tires, lol. Which of course means I have to be careful so I don't spin very much coming out of the hole. I have beaten most stock GTO's, Challengers, Cameros, and yes even newer Mustangs. As well I should because I have up-dated all of my drive-chain. Custom built 502, T-400 with a shift kit, Gear venders under and over, and a Currie 9 in. Detroit possi all up-dated. The 502 puts out 635 ft. lbs. of torque at 3600 RPM. Which is a lot of torque for even the fastest cars. The cars weak-spot is its weight, at 4600 pounds.

Thanks you for the kind comment. "Happy Trails"
