The 'Gold Hornet' - a fantastic 51-year-old car design!
The Ford Motor Company 302 engine is a part of the Windsor group of block castings, with no less than seven bore sizes used of the same basic block over a 28 year period. From the smallest and original 221 (3.6 L) bore to the largest, a 351 (5.8 L); used in Ford and Mercury products from 1962 through to 1990 in various displacements, but the 302 cu in (5.0 L) is the most enduring version. This 5 liter is still available as a crate engine in 2017 and is very much in common use today, both for the street or racing.

This 1968 Chevrolet Impala is a sleeper, looking like a family car, there is a fuel injected, 496 CID big block V8 under the hood, backed up by a four speed automatic (4L80E) transmission. Take a good look, as its pulling away, at the four stainless exhaust tips, hear the rumble and see the smoking tires-torque to burn- you will know this is one of the fastest street legal machines around.
