1984 Ford EXP turbo running for the first time in 15 years.
Here it is running properly finally. It is still not quite right, but it's getting better.





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"

1979 Mustang coupe Burnout
This is my 79 Mustang coupe. It's got a stock 1968 302 longblock with 86-93 stock headers, Pypes X pipe and Mac mufflers with dumps, Edelbrock Torker 289 intake, and a Holley 600 carb. Otherwise the engine is stock for now. I just got the engine swap done, so I decided to post up a picture.





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.

1969 Dodge Dart GTS 340
I think it was an automatic but now can't remember. Cool color and a very healthy 340 or maybe 360 (they look the same). It was SubLime.
