Wooly Mammoth never ran right after Charles sold it to the other guy who raced it next.

We were going to race on PINKS last season but ended up doing something different.

Good luck. Charles (Tech adviser) on the show is a good friend of mine. Hopefully, you get him on your side.

It's called not having a clue how to make a ford run fast.So what people do is drop in a GM create motor in a ford platform.

Not a joke. Many street rods, customs and race cars that have classic Ford bodies have Chevy power.

Why, you ask?

Availablity
Adaptability
Power-to-weight ratio
More bang for the buck
More aftermarket parts
Breathes better at all RPMs

The list goes on and on. Why do you think all the major marinizers use Chevy power?

Going fast on a budget is the key. When we agreed to the race, we said it had to be Grass Roots style. No dropping the car off at the go fast shop. Had to be done as cheaply as possible.

The car was given to us as a shell, and the majority of our members are running some form of the LSx based motor. The block was donated, the Lunati Rods, and Mahle pistons were donated, the intake was laying in my garage, the coils were in my garage, etc..........

It made it cheap. And besides, the LSx motors are much better at breathing then the Ford motors. Easier to make them fast IMO.

Dont worry, the car we are racing against is a 351 on the squeeze in a 81 Thunderbird. So you still get your Ford fix, and hopefully I can take their junk home

Where can I get the OSO stickers? We have whored the car out pretty well so far, but I KNOW I have room for a OSO decal on there somewhere.
