Very Funny-wifes first ride in hot rod-1961falcon 460
This is a video of my wife holding the camcorder as she rides in the first
run down the dragstrip of a 1961 Ford falcon with a 460 engine.This is the
very first pass down the track for the car. The sound of the screams are on
Ry Cooters album Flathead, "ridin' w/ the blues"- the song.
1964 Ford Falcon / $100 At a Time
Shane has owned this 1964 ford falcon Sprint 2 door hardtop since 1997 when
he was 15 years old. He bought this car for $500 and made payments "$100 at
a time". The car was a shell when he got it and over the years he has
turned it into a running, and driving classic car with a Ford 302 V8 and a
5-spd manual transmission out of a Mustang 5.0.
Back to the Track

Fixed some broken stuff, still need to tune fuel system and get it leaner.
61 falcon station wagon
1961 falcon 2 door station wagon that I built in my garage over a 6 year
period. It was a basket case when I found it , rusted and wrecked. Every
part has either been replaced or restored. Every nut , bolt , gasket ,seal
etc. Nothing remains from the original car that has not been massaged in
some manner. The motor is a new crate motor from Ford rancing. 340 hp,
alum. heads , roller motor. Trans is a redone C4, rear end is from a
Grabber and rebuilt as well. Disk brakes also from the Grabber. Body was
shaved and all repaired in metal. Only bondo used was a thin skim coat for
paint. Drip rail removed, corvair fuel door added. All crome and stainless
was redone. Paint is PPG tarnished silver flake. Interior is tweed
charcoal and silver. 17" American Mags. I could go on..
