PER­SON OF THE YEAR

Ron Har­ris

Classic Ford - - CLASSIC FORD AWARDS -

We’ve lost some big names on the scene this year, but ar­guably none big­ger than Ron aka the Con­rod Fa­ther. He did so much to push the po­ten­tial and raw per­for­mance ap­peal of clas­sic Fords, par­tic­u­larly in the early years, both with his cars and the hot Cross­flows and Pin­tos he built for him­self, fam­ily and se­lect cus­tomers, and even now, a cam or rocker cover with the leg­end Har­ris Per­for­mance En­gines on the top still gets a nod of ap­proval, and we can’t see that chang­ing for many years to come.
