SORC 2012 1973 Mercury Montego GT

This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me really excited about this race way back in 2003. My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg resulted in a 9th place finish.

Beautiful restoration! As you can see from the list in the video, some engine mods were made, but everything looks original. Cale Yarborough raced cars like this at the time. The paint and interior are perfection!
