My 86 EXP racing A 1968 Dodge Dart GTS with a cammed 340, aftermarket intake, headers, open Exhaust and drag radials. I am running 13 PSI in this video. I ran .2 seconds slower than the Dart at 6 mph faster in the 1/8th.
The Legend Bob Glidden
My tribute to my all time favorite Pro Stock racer Bob Glidden. All photos
are from my collection of pictures that I took of some of Bob's cars over
the years. Also included is the Diamond P coverage of Bobs horrifying crash
at the 1986 race in Atlanta.
In the '90s Bobs sons Billy and Rusty told thier Dad that they knew of some
Pro Stock racers who were running Nitrous Oxide and that was the reason they were
getting outrun. Bob didn't believe them so they built a second car to prove
that it could be done without being detected. .From the Feb 1996 issue of
Super Stock & Drag Illustrated. Page 24
"They will tell you it's totally impossible to run Nitrous & not get caught'' Glidden said " but
thats wrong,Thats flat wrong. A Ford with Nitrous bumped me outta the field at Topeka last
year. A Ford out of my own trailer. So nobody can tell me it can't be done.
I know it can be done."
The the father told a incredible story of how his kids had bugged him for
18 months , convinced that some Pro cars were running Nitrous & that he was missing the boat by not
running it too. "I told them if i had to cheat to race i'd quit" he said
"My kids know that: " if you think other people are doing it then go ahead,
prove to me you can do it.But keep in mind that if you get caught you're
going have to deal with the consequences; So they did & never got caught"
Later in the story
Then came the bombshell--- an admission at Indy by a Pro Stock racer with
firsthand knowledge of Nitrous oxide use
: Rusty Glidden. With his confession came a detailed description of how the
Nitrous system was secreted in his car.
"The holding tank was the big weight bar in the back. The Nitrous line started there,went over the axle
housing right up to the front of the car & stopped at the motor plate,
which was rifle-drilled. One of the supports holding the hood scoop on was
rifle-drilled & went up thru the top of the hood scoop to a small stainless
steel line that had 2 jets centered over the carbs. With .029 jets we made
120 ftlbs more torque at 7000 rpm & averaged 90 more horsepower. According to Bob
Glidden , the Nitrous system was
detection proof. "you had to have a combination of things to activate it so
a tech guy couldn't walk up , turn on the ignition & open the throttle. The
shock switch had to be on, the computer switch on, the engine running & the
throttle wide open. Trust me" Glidden concluded " Thats not fiction"

1988.5 Ford Escort EXP 1.9L CFI 2 Door, 2 or 5 seater coupe.
I noticed there are very few video's on what a Ford Escort EXP is. This is
the second generation model and the last one they came out with. The 88.5's
are all Luxury Sport Coupe's but it doesn't say that anywhere on the car. I
got mine from the original owner in 2012 and he had bought the backseat for
it when he had kids a few years after he bought the car. It came standard
with Fog Lights but when I bought it one was missing and wiring was burnt
up so I just ripped it all out. I might get another set one day for it to
keep it close to original. The only things that aren't original on it are
the air box cover that I painted Ford blue, and the Stereo system. Its
basicly an Escort that they came out with in the 80's to appeal to the
younger crowd. At the time the only other 2 seater car was the Thunderbird
and they wanted to replace the Mustang with this front wheel drive
style car. Once Mustang
owners found out they were trying to switch to a FWD car they lost it and
Ford quickly stopped the EXP. They had already spent so much money on the
project they came out with the Probe for a while and then that was dropped
completely and the Mustang
lived on! If you drive it by the shift indicator light on the gauge cluster
you will get stupid good fuel economy and shift it at 2,000rpm. If you
drive it a little harder and shift it at 3,000 it will get some... for a 4
cylinder... When these cars were new they were advertised at 44 Miles per
gallon. The tank is 40 Litres and I can get 600km if I fill it at 1/4 tank.
Mr. Norm Interview, Pt. 1 - How the '68 Dart GSS Was Created
Patrick Krook, CEO of ShowYourAuto.com, interviews legendary
high-performance Dodge dealer Norman Kraus (Mr. Norm) on how his Grand
Spaulding Dodge created the Dart GSS, a fire-breathing compact muscle car
with a 383 c.i. engine that Dodge's engineers claimed couldn't be built.
Ironically, this car inspired the factory-built Dart GTS with the same
