1986 Laguna Seca SCCA ITB Race 1974 Ford Pinto (Driver: Barry Streets)
Some of my Dad's old taped In-Car Footage of racing in his 1974 Ford Pinto ITB Racecar at Laguna Seca. It's pretty rare to find In-Car Footage of the old track configuration (Back when Laguna Seca Racway was almost an oval) because It wasn't attempted too much in a race.
I apologize for the quality, these were taken with a remote camera and then recorded with a VCR that was held in place with foam under the Seat of the car... pretty good for old VHS tapes that are 20 something years old though... ENJOY!

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca. During
this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is
all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the
occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use
most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that
before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout
the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the
vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast
car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have

2.2 Ford SOHC pinto Engine with open pipes - Mk1/Mk2 RS2000 Escort/Cortina Kitcar
Copy & Paste this link into your browser to buy one of my Cam and Crank
Bolt & Washer Sets:
2.2ltr ford sohc 'pinto' engine
offset ground crank, diesel rods, cologne v6 cast alloy pistons, teflon
buttons, Burton power rings, stainless steel one-piece inlet & ex., valves
(44.5 & 38mm respectively - wasted stems and inlet seat further narrowed).
Epoxy resin used to improve shape of inlet port - 'Apple port' as per David
Vizzard book specs.
2x Twin 45mm Dellorto DHLAs with (If I remember correctly) 38mm Chokes.
Infact, the specs I followed are available in Des Hammill's book 'How To
Power Tune Ford SOHC 'PINTO' Engines. He gives several examples of motors
including 2-3 set-ups for Pinto engines including 2100cc which is the one I
used. It got the results you see above.
Cylinder Head work has been elaborate and very time consuming (Valve guides
have been ground flush with the roof on both inlet and Exhaust ports).
Exhaust ports enlarged throughout. -
Both in. & ex. throts have neen 'throated' and then blended in upstream
with the rest of the port.
Heavy duty bearings all around including camshaft.
Standard ford factory camshaft & springs used during this video.
Standard points type distributor etc etc..
Mechanical Compression approx 10.8:1 (I used 100octane shell V-power
petrol for my runs).
Standard flywheel had all the available mass machined off to give the
lightest possible unit whilst retaining the most of the strength. It has
five steel dowel + 6x ARP bolts fastening it to the crank.
Crank was machined at halesowen engines (Don't think they do it anymore as
old man retired) then heat treated at laystall crankshafts in Wolverhampton
(different trading name now I think) and also polished at laystall
Diesel rods have seen some machining to get them to fit the crankshaft
(Rods are thicker and longer + a little hevier when standard).
Rods fitted with ARP YB cosworth rod bolts (No nuts).
I spent the best part of 7 years building this engine.
It has been a financial disaster and I would not do it again.
Saying that however, the value of building and running the engine
successfully will most likely reveal itself as the years go by.
I'm pleased you like the video and wish you great results with your
(Dedicated to my uncle).

1973 Ford Pinto For Sale North Carolina Updated 11/20/2013. Price: $3700 . 27834
1973 Ford Pinto, 2.0 sohc 4cyl c4 automatic 3.42 gear 37500 original miles.
Cylinder head upgraded to Ported Polished Bowl Blended Hardened Valve
seats. New Solid Lifters, New Followers, New Custom Crane Camshaft.
Crane Cam number is for-272-2-10, specs are 2500 to 6000 rpm power band,
3000 cruise rpm, valve lift is 436 / 460 and the duration is 272/282.
New Exhaust, leaves the header at
approx 2.5 inches, and tapers to 2 and 1/8th inch at the rear bumper,
still much larger than stock pinto 4cyl Exhaust.
14inch centerline wide rims with large NEW 14 inch tires, 9 inches wide,
26.5 inches tall. C4 Automatic transmission new stock torque convertor and
Car needs a paint job, and considerable punch and fill around edges,
mainly near the front and back of the rear wheels and the roof, where the
original vinyl top was removed, leaving glue/remnants and some pitting.
Roof needs grinding smoothing sealing and repainting (with bumpy paint?, to
simulate the vinyl top look?) - nearly impossible to see in video or
photos. YES, those areas are sealed up with Black Rustoleum, ANY TIME I see
any rust trying to break thru and or spread.
Listen to the audio, the solid lifter camshaft gives the engine a nice
lope at idle, can hear it better when it's IN GEAR, at idle. Dark Forest
green, I might choose.
Car comes with a fibreglass trunklid spoiler (not installed) as well as
some FREE original extra parts such as gauges/doorhandles/windowcranks and
2 cyl heads, 1 2.0 for rebuild, 1 2.3 already rebuilt, if desired.
$3700 my loss, you hit the lottery at this price. Overall cost to me?
11000plus. 450 holley, offenhauser intake, header, custom Exhaust. Cyl head work, parts, labor and
fabrication cost me 6000 in parts/labor. Add new radiator, brakes,
alternator, starter, AC (400 parts/labor TWICE to get it RIGHT), 14 in
wheels/NEW tires, and it's easy to add to over 11000 using simple math.
Those costs, you wont have to repeat. Rather you can just do the bodywork
and paint. This car has been painted ONCE in 40 years, SIX YEARS AGO, and
that was a cheap maaco respray in black, did not include color conversion
(doorjams etc still show mostly orig white/green).
Considering the age, its held in pretty good, overall condition. The
interior is all inact, with no rips or tears in the upholstery or
headliner, 1 crack on the dash, that is covered with a green matching felt
cover. Orig Shag carpet is not worn. Floors are solid. It's not rusty
underneath, like many 40-year old pintos that you will find. Find 1 with
only 37500 original miles, and these mechanical upgrades/updates. Cylinder
Head work: 1500 in JUST labor at the Coleman Brothers machine shop in
Baltimore, Md, for porting, polishing, bowl blending and very slight
shaving to ensure flatness (may be minimal increase in c/r from that, I'm
guessing .2 for 8.8 to 1, based on less than 20 thousands shaved for
flatness) - factory c/r, I JUST READ, was 8.6 to 1 and 100 bhp.
If U can do the bodywork/paint yourself, or hire it done for cheap, you'll
have a pretty nice driver quality 4banger, not a show car, but a decent
street machine, cruise-ins car, for under 6000 bucks, plus or minus some
Can you find a dirt dobber nest under the hood or underbody? I'm sure you
can. This car has been driven approx 200 miles in the past 2 years. Stored
under a roof, but open air, sometimes also under a car cover. This car had
to be PURCHASED with 30,000 orig miles on it, 6 years ago, driven 7300
miles locally, before the mechanical restoration/upgrades began.

Lacrosse Wisconsin Speedway Racing October 4, 1970 First Oktoberfest 200
Lacrosse Speedway October 4, 1970
LA CROSSE INTERSTATE SPEEDWAY
Sunday Afternoon, October 4, 1970
The first Oktoberfest 200 was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, October 4 at
2 p.m. The track opened at 10 a.m., the gates opened at 11 a.m. and time
trials began at noon. The race length was scheduled for 200 laps around the
5/8-mile oval, making the distance 110 miles.
The rules allowed for 1955 through 1970 American-made automobiles to
compete with the exception of "Pony Cars". Other specific rules included:
15-1/2 inch maximum tire width; 23 gallon maximum fuel tank; one mandatory
pit stop was required, at which time crews were allowed to add fuel.
The purse offered was $8,000 in cash and merchandise with $1,000 to win,
plus lap money. $100 was offered to any driver starting in the 33 car
field. Pit entry fees were $5 per person and advanced grandstand tickets
were available for $3.
Tom Reffner of Rudolph piloted his 1969 Mercury Cyclone to victory in the
first Oktoberfest 200 stock car race at LaCrosse Interstate Speedway on
Sunday, October 4.
Reffner's winning effort earned him a $1,000 check plus $341 in lap money.
Marv Marzofka of Wis. Rapids held the lead for the first 37 laps, while Jim
Sauter of Necedah and Jim Back of Vesper were in second and third
respectively. Reffner was slightly off the pace and in fourth. On the 38th
trip around the half-mile oval, Sauter and Back both passed Marzofka's '69
Torino. However, on lap 48 Sauter and Back both tried to avoid an accident
in turn three and crashed into the concrete retaining wall. Both cars were
out of the race and Marzofka recaptured the lead.
Reffner kept at his steady pace in second and overtook Marzofka on the
107th lap. From that point on it was Reffner all the way.
Marzofka was plagued by overheating problems and had to make frequent pit
stops. He eventually placed 16th. Marzofka held the top spot for 95 laps to
earn him $308 in lap money.
Following Reffner across the finish line were Rich Somers of Stevens Point
in a '69 Torino second; John McNamara of Baraboo in a '64 Mercury Comet
third; Bill Mueller of Shakopee, MN fourth in a '70 Plymouth; and Dennis
Sobkowiak of LaCrosse fifth in a '65 Plymouth.
On the 79th lap, Louis Vetrone of Wis. Rapids hit the retaining wall in
turn three and was taken to the hospital with possible cracked ribs.
In time trials Loren Iverson of Black River Falls smashed into the
retaining wall in front of the judge's stand and was transported to the
hospital. Iverson was apparently only shaken up.
In the non-qualifiers race, Ron Backeberg of LaValle drove his '57 Chevy to
first place. Allen Ward of Elba, MN was second and Don Dhein of Wis. Rapids
Baraboo's George Kopecky piloted his '63 Ford to first place in the
Consolation race. Sonny Immerfall of Marshfield was second while Ray
Slaback of LaCrosse took third.
Sixty-five cars timed in and a crowd of about 4,000 fans saw 17 of the top
33 cars enter in the 200-lapper finish.
