Classic Mustang is Crazy Fast!

March 2nd, 2018

Grandpa’s first car was a ‘65 Ford Mustang. He got it when he was just sixteen. When it wasn’t fast enough anymore, he pulled out the small block and crammed in an all-aluminum 7.0-liter Dart Racing engine (10.5:1 compression ratio). Throw in a 250hp shot of nitrous and what he has is a 9-second show car that looks as good at the drive-in on Saturday night as it runs on the drag strip on Sunday afternoon.

Seriously, this car is a real head turner. Every body panel is steel and it has been worked to perfection. The color choice is amazing and you would never assume that it is a 9-second quarter-mile car at all.

Tonight the long-haired Grandpappy is going up against a late model Pontiac GTO. The goat has some issues getting backed up (after the burn out) but once he’s lined up – Wow! – these two cars blast off the line and through the trap with only the Mustang having traction problems. Can the speedy senior citizen get a grip and take the win? Watch the video and find out.
