Here are a couple of my friends cars.

Freds 79 futura.


408 windsor for power runs 9.50's with a little "juice". It also cruises the streets on a regular basis.

Next Jay Hinkleman's red box top. Not sure what year.

If you say this car looks familiar...It is a PINKS ALLOUT winner...Milan Michigan. Powered by a big windsor....runs well into the 9's all motor.

The 79 uses a c-4...not sure on the convertor. I think it's a 4500 stall. I think he was running somewhere in the mid 10's on the motor.

It is a 94 octane pump gas motor. And it's not used as a dd.

Yes. He was the winner at the Pinks All Out in Milan Michigan. He only lives a couple of miles from me.

We also have around 6 months of crappy weather with nothing else to do but tear our junk down and make them faster.

Cool, I thought I reconized the car. Does he show up here on this site or any we would know about. Would be cool to chat with him.

I know what you mean about the cheap parts. As you can tell from my build, I'm on a real tight budget. I know everything that I'm doing to my car can be BOUGHT. The car would have been done last year if I could have afforded a moser 9", built 8.8, tubular k member, custom motor mounts, custom headers...ect, ect....Those 2 cars are examples of high end cars. Both cars have buku bucks in them.
I chose however to build a jig to fab mounts for my 9" rear, build my own k member spacers build my own motor mounts...and soon, fabbing up my own headers. As my car sits now, I have less than a grand in it....honest ! It would have cost more if I would have built my own engine, but a really good friend donated a fresh 466 for this project. The only stipulation is to return it in one piece.

Heads on this combo are just stock cast iron with a little bit of port work. (humps removed)
Cam is an old school general kinetics hydraulic. .525 lift int & exh. duration is .224@.050. Intake is also an old school torker ll. Not my choice of a combo, but like I said it"s borrowed. Although mild, it does have 11.75:1 compression...that should give it a little kick. Future plans are to finish my police interptor heads for the 468 I've been piecing together. This engine will have approx 10:1 compression...victor intake and an appropriate cam/convertor selection that should put the car in the 10's on pump gas.

I don't think he's a member on any of the fairmont/zeph sites.
