Street racing in 1979, Dieters 1970 Cougar
Dieter's 1970 Cougar Eliminator (former NHRA Super Stock car) with a
modified Boss 351C motor, (very rare), street racing an all out 1969 Camaro drag car in 1979.
Old school street racing where it all began and the way it was back then.
NO juice in those days, and healthy small blocks were making about 425 HP.
67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.

9 Second Buick GS Stage1
This was the car's 1st 9 sec. pass. Built around the GS Club Of America's
GS Street Eliminator Class rules. A real street car naturally aspirated
with a complete Exhaust system,full
interior etc. It is the first GS to run in the 9's using the original cast
iron Stage1 heads, under the GSE rules! It is a stock stroke 455 with an
.038 overbore to give it 464ci. It weighs 3500lbs and it idles smooth
enough to still run the power brakes! This pass was email@example.com mph and was
backed up with a 9.99@ 132.7 run.
1970 Torino Cobra 429CJ 4-Speed For Sale! (SOLD)
This car has been sold! Video will be left up for posterity, and because
eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181246173812
This listing is for my beloved 1970 429 CJ, Ford Torino Cobra with a
factory 4-speed transmission. This car is unusual in that it came with
manual drum brakes and manual steering. A friend of mine sold me this car
just before he passed away several years ago. Max bought the car in the
early 80's from the original owner (see documentation) so that makes me the
third registered owner. The 429 CJ motor and transmission were completely
rebuilt by Alderidge Motor Sports in Portland, OR. As the video attests to
and the documentation shows, a top notch job was ordered and it runs out
VERY strong. The drive-train has about 30,000 miles on it since the
extensive rebuild and would need very little to be rated a 10. It does not
have its numbers-matching block anymore, and the carburetor is an
aftermarket Holley, incorrect numbered distributor and other minor details
need attention or are not correct (see video). It has a VERY solid Western
body and some very nice interior parts. Please watch the video for
specifics as I go into much further detail there. Feel free to call me at
503-463-1130 if you need further information. I feel this car is worth
about $25,000.00, but my reserve is much less than that. We can help with
shipping worldwide as I have done it many times over the last 25 years. I
will consider trades for 67-73 parts or parts cars. Thank you! Don Rush
9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at
the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also
the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to
Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been
taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to
bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our
shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new
powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the
engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and
get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138
hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the
5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing
adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle
the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool
but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to
straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll
go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.
The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first
production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the
"record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how
the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it
eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some
of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques
used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail
than the 'average' Cougar.
Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the
images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.
