Gary Myers' Stang is Street Machine of the Year

I know lots of u guys don't read street machine all that often so just lettin u know that the 1966 Stang of Gary Myers won Street Machine of the Year. Darn good effort i reckon in a land dominated by Modified Holden/Monaro fans. The Stang has been salt lakes racin too it seems and has a new interior-i look forward to seeing it at this years Summernats again.

Well - behind every great holden is a FORD diff and/or gearbox !!

(and dont say there are no great holdens.. I will never own one - but I can admire them.... sometimes.... only when they really deserve it)

I'd love to hear the sound bytes of Gary's blown Stang going past at 250km/h - it'd be bloody awesome!:rtongue: :rtongue: :rcool:

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

mmmmmmmm 66 stang! Does anyone know the power and torque levels of this car? I think it's a 351 although I might be wrong.
