Allan's mustang

If 750hp and 10-second quarter-mile time slips don't get you excited, go ahead and click your browser off this blog.


No the fastest ride I've been in isn't a truck, it is however, a really fast custom car that my long time friend and engineer, Allan built from the ground up. It's a '70 Ford Mustang Boss 302 clone with a built 347ci Ford V-8 with over 10 psi of boost thanks to a Vortech blower. A water-methanol injection system keeps the intake temps cool and everything from the built AOD with manual valve bodies to the driveshaft to the bulletproof rearend was designed to be beat on and take it with a smile. The Nitto drag radials make burnouts tough but doughnuts aren't so difficult!
At 145+mph during a late night blast down a Georgia backroad, we hit an armadillo. Ever seen what a 3,600lb car does to an animal at 145+ mph? It ain't pretty.
