tbolt - the whole show
On Halloween 2009, Phil Featherston shattered the long held (unverified)
world record for the quarter mile Ford Thunderbolt in a flash of oil and
grit. The time was 9.23 seconds at 151mph. Special thanks to Jake and
Gerald. Video by Dave Featherston.

Took the Fairlane out for a Sunday cruise and hit up the local car show. It
has a 427cu dual quad high riser FE with 15:1 compression. The car runs in
NHRA A/S Stock Eliminator and has a best ET of 9.80. Enjoy!

Have you ever seen a "tribute" car that's more authentic that the "real
thing"? We haven't seen many, but this 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt
certainly could make a claim to the title. Built with more "real"
Thunderbolt parts than most "real" Thunderbolts, including a real-deal
Holman & Moody 427 side-oiler, this is the ideal car for the Ford fanatic
seeking a Thunderbolt that can be driven and shown with pride. Or, if
you've got a Thunderbolt, but don't have the incredibly pricey "real"
engine, this car could be the link to making your car "correct".
