FAST Series

Pretty cool if you're into the FAST (Factory Appearing Stock Tire) series - apparently the first Ford to run 10's. That's pretty impressive for a heavy car on those skinny bias ply tires. See link below:

Can you imagine how much finesse it would take to hook that car/tire to run ten's. simply amazing to me.

Thanks Rick and Mark, It's Ford Medium Lime Metallic - a factory color for 72. The car is a 73 and was originally Ivy Glow - a little darker green special order paint. The original owner repainted it back in the early 80s - I'm the 2nd owner. It's getting a little rough around the edges but looks ok in pictures or at 20 ft

Rick,

I'm trying to sell some parts that a guy said he's interested in.If i sell them by the Norwalk race and have the money i might try and bring my car.If not i'm sure i'll see you at the Norwalk race on Sunday if the weather is nice.

Brian,

Thanks for the compliment on my car,now at least people know it's mine and i'm not showing pictures of someone elses car.

Later Mark.
