SI­MON H’S CAR OF THE SHOW

Classic Ford - - FORD FEST -

This retro-look­ing drag car post­ing 10-sec­ond quar­ters caught my eye and for good rea­son. “It’s a tube-frame chas­sis car, orig­i­nally built in Hun­gary,” says Owen For­rest. “My Dad and I got it for a bit of fun while my ’67 Mus­tang is com­ing to­gether. It’s pow­ered by a Wind­sorV8 bored to 408ci, and makes around 500 bhp.We had a 150 shot of gas but the track wasn’t great. I’m ex­pect­ing to go 9.90 be­fore the gas.”

The Nankang Tyre Chal­lenge proved pop­u­lar, with David Da­too go­ing home with quick­est time of the day. Colin Dowl­ing’s Zetec turbo’d Es­cort qui­etly awaits an­other run up the strip. Notch­back Mus­tang looked and sounded great.
