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 #MustangTown
