Crazy! I would like to see how it performs on the track. 300 ft. of dirt and 4X4 of course

Truck Pulling; Because no one else understands why a 460 "gotta" turn 7500 rpms!!

That tank engine is also a Ford engine. As I recall, it is 1100 cubes and has over 1000 lb ft of torque.

If I'm not mistaking it's all aluminum.

LOL. I've always loved that engine. Jay Leno also has one in a custom one-off vehicle, that he calls his "Tank Car." It wasn't powerful enough for him though, so he ended up bolting two turbos onto it

Well, I wouldn't need a glide any more......just a big chunk of railroad iron for a coupler!

Rob,

The guy with the Mustang has a powerglide hooked to his GAA engine. Wilcap made the adapator. You just have to stuff it between your frame rails and go!!!

It really surprised me how much of a car guy he is, I would love to have his resources.
