Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II That Got Its Owner Into the 150mph Club At Bonneville

Michael Callahan from Cincinnati, Ohio, always dreamed about going to Bonneville with a street car and getting into the 150MPH Club. Or should we say, drive a car to Bonneville, make his passes, and then drive home. A few years ago he got into the 130MPH Club with a 1999 Ford Crown Vic that was a Bondurant Driving School car set up by Jack Roush with a 1999 Mustang Cobra valve train. He got into the club with it, but he knew it couldn’t go 150mph, and you know that higher speeds are addicting. After he retired from the printing business the search for a 150mph street car commenced. He wasn’t after any specific car, with his parameters being for something he could easily modify aerodynamically, and performance-wise too. In 2015 he found the car he thought would work for sale in California, this 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II. It hit him that this would be the perfect type of production car to make an attempt for his dream.

Ford Mustang 1970 BOSS 429

Back in 1969, Ford was ready to roll out a new engine to compete in NASCAR - the BOSS 429. This was a semi-hemispherical headed V8 designed to compete with Dodge's 426 Hemi that was leading the pack on the NASCAR super speedways. NASCAR rules say that you need to sell at least 500 copies of a "street" version of any engine you planned to race, so Ford needed to build a civilian BOSS 429 for the general public. The interesting part is that Ford interpreted the rule book and noticed that the engine didn't have to be in the same car raced... so they could stuff a BOSS 429 into a Mustang rather than the Torinos being used in NASCAR. The result was a super-bad Mustang with a custom-installed 375 HP NASCAR engine under the hood...

A Brief History of Dodge’s Scat Pack – From late-60’s marketing masterstroke to modern muscle machine

The 2016 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is my pick for the best of the breed when it comes to the retro-themed muscle car. The Scat Pack checks all the right boxes: 485 horsepower from a 6.4-liter Hemi V8, the quicker steering, stiffer suspension, and bigger brakes found in the standard Super Track Pak package, a louder exhaust system, and the availability of the ‘Shaker’ intake option, which sticks up through a hole in the middle of the car’s hood and rumbles every time you rev the engine.
