Very cool!
66 Cyclone GT; 245/60R15's on 15x8's and 215/70R15's on 15x7 Magnum's.
There's nothing like the sound of a pushrod V8 singing at the top of her lung's.

chances are if you could see inside that 67 fastback son is driving in that pic,,next to him in the pass seat is a battery operated tape recorder !!! just before he staged it ,he'd reach over and turn it on,,crossed the finished line and turn it off,,at the pits he would listen to his engine and shift point,,,and back in the early early days of dirt trackin..CORY ,Dwayne's son,my grd son,,started driving when he was about 12 --13 yrso,,we built a special box mounted inside car and took a movie camara and would record him raceing on the track...later we reviewed the film,,he would see his good points as well as to where he made a goof up.....we did all this way before inside camaras was made or offered ,in fact that 64 black stang new was a 6 cyl….it has a v8 5 lug frt end from a v8 falcon under it,,,and still has it ,cause we still own all 3 cars today...we have been doing this stuff for so long,,way before this forum was even thought about...I can't tell for sure in the pic,,but if my black 64 is missing a hood,,that was when I had a cross ram intake with 2 4's on it,it was just a tad to tall,,couldn't shut the hood,,so it was removed.for awhile,,,the 4spd in OL RUSTY at one time was in that black stang,,just different tailshafts….I can't tell in the pic's,,but there could be 3x2's on that little 289....the good part is we still have it all on a shelf in the shop...pop
