1960 Ford Falcon Gasser Barona Drag Strip 7-28-2012
1960 Ford Falcon Gasser Drag Racing at the king of clubs Rockabilly road trip. Nothing like a straight axle in a 1960 ford falcon. gasser was a type of hot rod originating on the dragstrips of the United States in the late 1950s and continued until the early 1970s. Gassers were based on production models from the 1930s to mid 1950s, which have been stripped of extraneous weight and jacked up using a truck beam axle to provide better weight distribution on acceleration (Beam axles are also lighter than an independent front suspension), though a raised stock front suspension is common as well. Common weight reduction techniques include fibreglasss body panels, stripped interiors and plexiglass windows (sometimes color tinted). Being built for racing, these cars are subject to either an engine swap, tuning or both. It was very common to fit a Roots Supercharger and mechanical fuel injection, such as one from Algon, Hilborn, or Crower. With form being dictated by function, their appearance is often very top heavy and ungainly, largely due to front ends being raised higher than stock, to assist weight transfer.[citation needed] Having their Exhaust pipes exiting through the fender well is a common characteristic.[citation needed] Although functional, these cars were often flamboyantly painted in metalflakes, pearls, and candy finishes complemented by lettering in wild fonts.[citation needed] The name arose because they were a gasoline-fuelled class, rather than using methanol or nitromethane. The Ford Falcon was an automobile produced by Ford Motor Company from 1960 to 1970. It was a huge sales success for Ford initially, handily outselling rival compacts from Chrysler and General Motors introduced at the same time. During its lifespan, the Falcon was offered in a wide range of body styles: two-door and four-door sedans, two-door and four-door station wagons, two-door hardtops, convertibles, a sedan delivery and the Ranchero pickup. y American standards of the 1960s, the Falcon was a small car, but elsewhere it would be considered a mid-size car. It was powered by a small, lightweight 90 hp (67 kW), 144 CID (2.4 L) straight-6 with a single-barrel carburetor. Construction was unibody, and suspension was fairly standard; coil springs in front, leaf springs in the rear. Drum brakes were used at the front and rear wheels. Front suspension was independent with coil springs.[5] A three-speed manual column shift was standard with the two-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic optionally available . There was room for six passengers in reasonable comfort in the simple interior.[6] Body styles available from the launch year were two- and four-door sedans, two- or four-door station wagons, and the Ranchero car-based pickup, transferred onto the Falcon platform for 1960 from the Fairlane. A Mercury derivative, the Mercury Comet, originally intended for the defunct Edsel marque, was launched in the US midway through the 1960 model year.





NZV8TV Ep 2 - muscle cars, Beach Hop, Nostalgia drags - Part 1
Central Muscle Cars: We hit the Taupo Racetrack with Central Muscle Cars and check out the awesome Mustang of Greg Honour. Hes managed to win one series, and come second in another, how will he go in this semi-final round? Beach Hop: We also head back to Whangamata to enjoy a slightly slower paced event, the Beach Hop. Between checking out the cars, the bands and the girls, we catch up with the paint gurus from House Of Kolor and check out their latest innovation. Castrol Edge brought Aussie Drag Racing Legends Victor and Ben Bray over for Beach Hop, and the Nostalgia Drags. We manage to catch up with them at both events on this weeks show. Nostalgia Drags: Victor was super impressed with the Nostalgia Drags - he and son Ben smoke their '57 Chev up the Meremere strip. Watch Dave Goulds insane Fiat Topolino attempt to jump the guardrails on every pass, nasty Norris's nostalgia rail wheels up, Paul Hammond's VG Valiant as well as a great mix of other cars and people from the event.

Ford Falcon GTHO Phase 4 test drive.flv
This car's likely one of the most significant production cars in Australia to have never gone into full production. So glad to see this car in the light of day. Much speculation surrounds the truth of the XA GTHO Phase 4's. Forget all that, just enjoy the video and the few remaining cars in exitence. I will say, however, beware of the mass media and its vile, conniving behaviours - considering its them that destroyed our opprtunity to have this car on the road.
