604 CID 385 in an early Mercury Capri

The guys at http://www.trickandmanswetoracing.com.au/ have an older Mercury Capri with a 604 that has done what has to be the longest/highest wheelie that I have ever seen.

Too cool!

1967 Mustang coupe, Mustang II front suspension. W/RV camed, D3VE headed, 460/C6 (soon to be 557 CID w/ported police interceptor heads) out of the box BBC headers(with homemade steel adapters)

Shocktower removal enthusiast.

The race is not over till the Fat Block Ford Sings!

That video has a HUGE WOW effect!! Check out them back tires, they must've cleared the ground by a foot!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Totally cool. I had one of those cars with a 289 and a T/R with 2x4's on it. We contemplated putting a 429 in it that my dad had at the time but the car was starting to rust pretty bad and parts were/are a rarity here.

Thanks for the video,
