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.

Redneck way of getting a totaled racecar off a trailer
Steve totaled the race car last weekend in an accident at the race track. He ended up rolling about 4 times with the car landing on its top. He has begun tearing the car apart so we can get the cage out to use in another car. We needed to get the car off of the trailer so we can tow our other race-car for now. We hooked a ratchet strap underneath the car, and the other end around the fire pit. Then a friend pulled the truck/trailer forward and the car slid off. It was quite humerus to watch!

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

Chevy Big Block Camaro 509 "The Grocery Getter"
This is our 80 Camaro that has been transformed from weak to sick with a 10:1, 509cid solid roller big block, TH400 with Hughs trans kit, Hughs 3000 stall conv., GM 12 bolt rear with Detroit Tru-Trac and Richmond 3.73 gears all custom built by me. Frame connectors, and eurothane bushing's throughout stiffened up the car, Moroso coil springs and Afco rear springs made it all come together. The fiberglass 4"cowl induction hood keeps it all concealed. We love the car and cant wait to get it to the 1/4 mile and chassis Dyno to shoot more video's.

SOLD 1950 Mercury Coupe Hot Rod for sale by Corvette Mike Anaheim California 92807
1950 Mercury Custom Coupe Candy Apple Red w/White interior. If you get a bunch of gearheads in a room together and they get to talking about what the ultimate hot rod is, inevitably there will be three constants on the list; the '32 Ford Hi Boy Roadster, the '32 Ford 3 window coupe and the subject of this ad; the iconic '50 Merc coupe. The quintessential lead sled; the Merc defined the full bodied hot rod in the '50's. Its flowing lines were a vast canvas on which customizers could practice what was a fairly new art form back in the late '40's, early 50's. Chopped, channeled, frenched and decked. That's what you did if you wanted your Merc to stand out in a crowd! And the sled being offered here does that in spades! Designed to emulate customs made famous by legends like Sam and George Barris, Gene Winfield and many others, this rolling piece of art has all of the elements mentioned above, in addition to being wrapped in stunning Candy Apple Red paint, white tuck and roll interior with a multi-carb'd Flathead under the hood! Held in a vast private collection consisting of only the finest custom automobiles, the work was done by Steve's Auto Restorations using elements of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Olds & Kaiser. The hardtop body has no "B" pillar, the headlights have been "Frenched", hood corners have been rounded and of course it wouldn't be a '50's custom without Appleton spots! The interior features white "Tuck and Roll", laminated plastic knobs and a '57 Olds steering wheel, power steering, a hidden audio system and solenoid operated doors, windows and trunk The business end features a full dress Motorhead City 1950 Flathead engine featuring an Offenhauser intake and heads and three Stromberg '97 carbs. House of Color supplied the Candy Apple over Gold exterior and "Von Dutch" style pinstriping. Wides whites with full Cadillac wheel covers completes the deal! It's an investment grade custom that spells upside in it's fortunate new owners future. It was good enough for James Dean! Stk #N/A
