Mk1 V8 Zakspeed replica on the rollers
Took the opportunity when I was at Crail to put the car on the rollers. Unfortunately the Dyno misread on the first run and by the time we did the second the car had been sat about and had oiled the plugs so we din't get a reading :( - you can hear the misfire as soon as he starts loading the engine (about 10 seconds in)
Ford Escort Mk1 Crash - Goodwood 2009
The Ford Escort that won the 1970 London-Mexico World Cup Rally, having a bit of trouble with this corner.
From the Goodwood Programme for this car:
"Over 100 cars started the 16,000-mile London-Mexico World Cup Rally in 1970, but only 23 finished. Hannu Mikkola won the incredibly tough event, which featured 500+ mile stages, and drives this weekend"
Supercharged V8 Capri Powercruise 2009
I believe this car has a 351 Windsor engine. This video was taken on Saturday at 'Powercruise' Eastern Creek February 2009.
I used to own a light blue Ford Capri with a fully worked 302 Windsor, 9" disc rear end, but i sold it years ago.
