Re: Street Machine

One thing I'm noticing in Street Machine is the trend of old Ford hot-rods, 1930s stuff, with Small-block Chevy V8's in them. Damn people, Ford car is meant to have Ford engine!

that they are. Im not saying that hemis suck. Its almost as bad as putting a gen3 in a BA. You just dont do it!

I dont care how much HP that thing makes, it can turn back time for all I care; its just wrong.

Re: Street Machine

Until you start getting into Pro-Nitro Stuff (ie: Top Fuel, Funny Car etc).. a Windsor can do everything a Hemi can. I'd much rather a 2000hp 400ci+ Windsor then a Hemi, in a Mustang.

Re: Street Machine

no doubt hemis are awesome engines. I personally think the 426 hemi is the greatest v8 produced. but like steffo said, he could of got the same power out of a ford motor. A big block 427 'cammer' or something like that would of been much more suitable!!

but yeah MR0250's car is awesoime!!!

Re: Street Machine

good magazine this edition.

the XF looks very smooth. and Myers stang looks amazing, to see the chassis/body work thats gone into it makes you appreciate the car more. who cares if its got a hemi - get over it!!

also in the mag -
a very cool Mercury lead slead.
a interview thing with ben gatt
MotroEx coverage
40 years of Mustangs in the US
a Tuff VC Valiant
& more
