The neighbors even tried to burn it and luckily it was covered in leaves. It only left some marks on the hood.

What kind of idiot would burn a car like that. Were they your neighbors or where you got the car from?

You are working your way in the right direction. I've had to battle GM guys my whole life.

I only have 4 fords total, half of which are only good for parts. I have at least 7 other cars, all GM.

Any chance you'll be making Bristol this year with the wagon?

I've never been...I'm still on the fence myself. I'd like to see a few wagons though.

I wonder what my 200 straight 6 would do on the 1/4. I need a new starter, as I can't get power to it right now. I'm gonna get on the ball pretty quick though.

with a turbo, it would be more than decent, depending on the pressure, fuel delivery and gearing, you could easily whoop a 302/351 and aim for a 14 seconds pass
