My son-in-law raced his Ford Taurus SHO in the "Test & Tune" at Capitol Raceway in Crofton, Maryland. It was really windy and cold that day, and I made the mistake of trying to operate two cameras AND a video camera at the same time. Enough excuses. This is the best footage I have of the day, showing my son-in-law racing his car. Permission granted by Capitol Raceway, and my son-in-law to show this video.
Ford Taurus SHO vs Ford Mustang GT
Two of the greatest cars I've ever owned. My 1990 Ford Taurus SHO, highly
modified, up against my 2005 Ford Mustang GT, bone stock. Both are five
speed manuals. Mustang had
300HP stock (factory crankpower spec). Taurus had roughly 254HP modified
calculation based on Dynoplot). I had decided to trim
my fleet a bit and list the SHO for sale, $3,000/OBO. After the testdrive
here, the buyer said "no negotiations necessary, I'll give you full asking

As I was attending Capitol Raceway's drag-racing event, I also videotaped
these strangers. If anyone ever comes across these videos and wants to
identify themselves, please let me know!

Well... i got to find out first hand, and you get to watch and enjoy!
if your about to do this job your self please watch and you will have a
good understanding of how to do it. or at least whats involved.
This was a weekend project and i thought i would document it for fun... and
to help others.
This would have cost me between $1200-$1600 as a local shop. depending on
where i took it.
i did this job my self for just over $200 including the fallowing:
head gasket kit
new head bolts
new coolant reservoir
new spark plugs
RTV Black sealant
Quick set epoxy
and some coolant system flush.
for me it was better than buying a new car...
lets hope it lasts...

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
