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.
Weed Wacking at the 2004 Sandhills Open Road Challenge
Off course Excursion at the 2004 Sand Hills Open Road Race. We were In the
115 but ran up with the rally computer set on a CAS of 120 mph to see what
it would be like. We were right on 120 but slid off the road 2 miles from
the finish to average 119.6 mph (3 seconds slow) for that leg.
We came in 2nd to a Viper GTS ACR in the 115 class.
1972 Mercury Montego Hardtop Red SilvSprOcala011213
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!
1969 Mercury Montego - #6059 - Gateway Classic Cars St. Louis
For Sale in our St. Louis showroom is a 1969 Mercury Montego with a whole
lot of attitude. The Montego was an upscale version of a Ford Comet and
this particular example came from the factory with a 6 cylinder. This car
has been healthily upgraded and now boasts a monstrous 525 CID V8. Backing
the big block is a stout C6 automatic transmission and Nodular rear end
with 3.54 gears with locker. The heavy duty hardware is needed as HP is
estimated over 650 HP. To keep her planted the shocks, springs, and brakes
have all been replaced. Outside she's coated in a glossy coat of red paint
with a great set of black wheels wrapped in white letter tires. With the
large body and the wheel and tire package it reminds you of NASCARs of the
late 60s. You'll sure feel like a race car driver when you fire up and hear
the rumble of that Big Block. Inside you'll find new leather upholstery,
floor mounted ratchet shifter and aftermarket tachometer. This bad boy is
ready for the street, the strip, car shows, or whatever you want to throw
at it. You can see additional information, including HD video, at
www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please call 618-271-3000 with any questions.

1972 Mercury montego GT
Our 72 Montego Gt thats awaiting restoration. This car was suppose to be
the 72 cyclone spoiler GT but Mercury changed their minds and made it the
Montego GT. Most came with bench seats and 302 small blocks.This one is
rare with the hounds tooth bucket seat interior which is white with black
carpet, console and rallye dash.It had the rare rim blow steering wheel
which has long since disappeared a long time ago. Also this one has the
rare 351 Cobra Jet Motor option. I cant find any info on the half white
vinyl top. its the only one ive ever seen this way. There is not another
one like this on the Montego Gt registry website.Its quite possible it
might be one of one which would make it the only one with this vinyl top
option.Please dont ask me if you can buy it. Its not for sale now or in the
