  Vic,

 You assume correct...no rear either! We just wanted to check for leaks and make sure it actually runs! I don't care how many I build, I'm always a little nervous on the first fire up! lol  She sounded good and we're happy so far. Now if we can make a burnout and a pass with nothing falling off, I'll be REAL happy! In all seriousness, this combo is pretty much a duplicate to what we have in the Screamin Eagle, A few things are different, but the main components are real close. This weekend, the goal will be to get the car from A to B and get George use to the combo. I'm not expecting anything spectacular, but I do expect it to be a consistent six second car as the season un-folds. Working with George has been a pleasure, he understands what it takes to get one of these cars running good, I think he will do great and I think this ride is  nothing more than a stepping stone to bigger and better things for him......

  George was out making money so we can buy more parts! lol  The "pilot" is Steve Musser, Steve does double duty as a marketing expert on the Frantic ford and helps out on our team as a "grunt". Steve is a good guy and I expect to see him in the seat of a funny car real soon!

  Thanks Al..!  My entire crew has done everything they can to make this car run as good as it can. A special thanks to both Tom Fox and Bill Ellershaw for treating this car like its one of our own. We look forward to working with George and making the Frantic Ford Mustang II perform as good as it looks!

    What did you say? lol.....   No ear plugs...., I KNOW...we'll pay for it some day..! The cat at the end of video, thinks its a dog! Very friendly and very affectionate.. We have a bunch of strays out back, this one is the coolest of the bunch.. I'm doing my best to try and find it a real home.

A very special "thank-you" to Rocky Pirrone, Tom Fox, Bill Ellershaw, the Hall Brothers and a host of others for the long hours and total dedication put forth to make the Frantic Ford program a success.

The entire organization is looking forward to the coming season. Let's go out there and make some laps and have some fun.

Most importantly, let's remember why we are all doing this in the first place. To honor the memory of Dodger and the legacy of the Frantic Ford.
