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...

1972 Mercury Capri V6 2600 startup ......and it's for sale !
This was my first car purchased in 1978. I drove it stock for a few years
then in 1981 I did a restoration (body work, paint, suspension, engine,
trans.) . I took off the stock rally wheels and bias tires and put on some
aluminum slot mag wheels with radials.
I installed an ANSA dual sport Exhaust
system with twin Ferrari resonator tips which improved the performance and
it sounded great!
Put air shocks in the back so I could lower the rear a bit to improve
I installed a high power stereo (hey it was 1981!) and this thing was
powerful at that time. I made a custom speaker enclosure to fit on the
I installed a set of aluminum rear window louvers and that set off the
styling nicely...at least I liked them !
The car handled great, the V6 and 4 speed made for a really quick and
nimble sports car. Plus it was very reliable for a 70's import. The only
issues I had was loosing a sync gear in the trans and it liked to go
through front end bushings..
The interior is in great shape but the dash is cracked. Actually I think
they all cracked after 4-5 years unless the car never saw the sunshine!
The body has some spots coming through but it's not in terrible shape. The
entire underside was undercoated.
Normal maintenance was performed over the years but along with belts,
hoses, etc... etc will need the front calipers rebuilt as the are sticking.
Otherwise it runs and drives good.
This is for sale if anyone is interested.

OnTrack Karting Super Kart Run, 9-7-12
Its a month old, and the camera angle is a little low but ill upload
anyways. The track is OnTrack Karting, an indoor track in Wallingford, CT.
The kart is one of the super karts that they have there with 9hp racing
against the regular adult karts which are 6.5hp. This was only my 3rd of
4th time out in the 9hp karts and I'm way too light so i think my best time
was about 40.3 seconds to lap the track.
