85 Mercury Capri *BLOOPER* couldnt get it off the trailer

This was the first day for the new (in 2007) combination. The headers were Bassani step headers. I had built 12" long collector extensions for it. The car went on the trailer just fine, but the extensions acted like a check valve and would not let the car off the trailer. I had to pull back up and remove them to get the car off the trailer.

85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Out (Stumble) 3rd run
First time out for new engine. Had a very bad stumble off the line. Found out later that my MSD 7AL2 was pulling 10 degrees of timing out between 3,000 and 4,000 RPM's. So I was leaving the line with only 24 degrees of timing!! No wonder the car was falling flat on it's face!! Despite dismal 60 foot times in the 1.80's, the car was still running 7.0's in the 1/8 mile at 97 MPH. That was short shifting at only 6,000 RPM's. My goal of 6.60's in the 1/8 with this new engine should be easily realized after it gets sorted out

Short ride in my 351W powered '85 Mercury Capri
Decided to take my buddy for a spin in my '85 Mercury Capri. It has a 351W with a few mods done to it. I was having trouble with 2nd gear, hence the banging noise while shifting. The video quality isn't that great, but was taken with his I-phone.

1972 Mercury Capri V6 2600 startup ......and it's for sale !
This was my first car purchased in 1978. I drove it stock for a few years then in 1981 I did a restoration (body work, paint, suspension, engine, trans.) . I took off the stock rally wheels and bias tires and put on some aluminum slot mag wheels with radials. I installed an ANSA dual sport Exhaust system with twin Ferrari resonator tips which improved the performance and it sounded great! Put air shocks in the back so I could lower the rear a bit to improve handling. I installed a high power stereo (hey it was 1981!) and this thing was powerful at that time. I made a custom speaker enclosure to fit on the parcel shelf. I installed a set of aluminum rear window louvers and that set off the styling nicely...at least I liked them ! The car handled great, the V6 and 4 speed made for a really quick and nimble sports car. Plus it was very reliable for a 70's import. The only issues I had was loosing a sync gear in the trans and it liked to go through front end bushings.. The interior is in great shape but the dash is cracked. Actually I think they all cracked after 4-5 years unless the car never saw the sunshine! The body has some spots coming through but it's not in terrible shape. The entire underside was undercoated. Normal maintenance was performed over the years but along with belts, hoses, etc... etc will need the front calipers rebuilt as the are sticking. Otherwise it runs and drives good. This is for sale if anyone is interested.





85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Startup
Just finished building a 347 stroker for my Capri bracket car to replace the 351 Cleveland that I have been racing in several different configurations for the past 23 years. Just started it for a short time to set the timing and see if therre were any issues that needed immediate attention. The next day I did the obligatory 20 minute break in cycle at 2500 rpm and varying the rpms.
