HC Wilcox Racing: Mercury Capri and Ford Mustang

The Mercury Capri is the drag car my high school is building. This is the first time it has moved under it's own power since replacing basically everything under the hood. The Mustang is a future project we are going to work on possibly when this is done. The video was taken from my iPhone so not so good quality but still...

Fox-Body 5.0 Capri - "that's a bad mutha******, brutha" lol
Check out Otis' Jalapeno Red 1985 Mercury Capri 5.0 H.O Fox! This car really got me excited as I absolutely love the 1985-86 model years 5.0 Mustang and 5.0 Capri and I think I get just a bit more excited with these Capri models over the Mustangs because you just don't run across these cars much anymore... as well as having personal memories and experiences with an old 5-liter Capri from 1985 way back in the late '80s. I would love to find a decent 85-86 model.... anyway, thanks for chatting with me Otis! Awesome car brutha! I seriously need to find a Capri dammit, lol. nedaCFilms / Mustang-Town 2015 w/ background music from the YouTube Audio Library. www.Mustang-Town.com

Mercury Cars of 1949 to 1951
The Mercury car model has been around since 1939 and was introduced as a mid range priced vehicle by Edsel Ford. Cars built between 1949 and 1951, would in later years prove to be very popular amongst the Hot Rod Car Enthusiasts. They would reshape the steel to produce cars that would set a new standard for Customized Vehicles. Early model Mercury cars of 1949 to 1951 had a 90 degree V type, "L" head 8 cylinder engine with a displacement of 255.4 cubic inches. These engines put out 112 horsepower at 3600 R.P.M. Later model cars of 1955 replaced the "L" engine with the "Y" block V-8 producing between 188 and 198 horsepower dependant on the engine type for that year. This slide show is a part of a series of pictures of cars from different car shows that I've attended here in Southern California U.S.A.
