SORC 2012 1973 Mercury Montego GT
This is something of a tribute video to Chris Bischof's video that got me
really excited about this race way back in 2003.
My average on the northbound leg was 90.004 mph, which was good enough for
second place in the class, but my average of 89.722 on the return leg
resulted in a 9th place finish.
1969 Mercury Montego - #6059 - Gateway Classic Cars St. Louis
For Sale in our St. Louis showroom is a 1969 Mercury Montego with a whole
lot of attitude. The Montego was an upscale version of a Ford Comet and
this particular example came from the factory with a 6 cylinder. This car
has been healthily upgraded and now boasts a monstrous 525 CID V8. Backing
the big block is a stout C6 automatic transmission and Nodular rear end
with 3.54 gears with locker. The heavy duty hardware is needed as HP is
estimated over 650 HP. To keep her planted the shocks, springs, and brakes
have all been replaced. Outside she's coated in a glossy coat of red paint
with a great set of black wheels wrapped in white letter tires. With the
large body and the wheel and tire package it reminds you of NASCARs of the
late 60s. You'll sure feel like a race car driver when you fire up and hear
the rumble of that Big Block. Inside you'll find new leather upholstery,
floor mounted ratchet shifter and aftermarket tachometer. This bad boy is
ready for the street, the strip, car shows, or whatever you want to throw
at it. You can see additional information, including HD video, at
www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please call 618-271-3000 with any questions.

bumpers, and doors. All panels were stripped and bodyworked (not much
bodywork needed). Painted 2013 Toyota/Lexus Sunset Bronze Mica (runs $900+

2013 Outing at High Plains Raceway in the LS1 Porsche 944
A few laps at Colorado's High Plains Raceway on July 14, 2013. Car is my
'89 Porsche 944 with an LS1 in it. It was a bit down on power this event,
but still doing ok. I'm running Toyo RA1 race tires, they were going away
at the end of the session, lots of drifting at that point. The white 944
also has an LS1, weighs 500lbs less than me and was on BFG R1's. The Cobra
weighs 1000lbs less than me (!!) was on Kumho 710's and makes way more
power and torque than I do.
