Re: My 460 XY Fairmont

Still got it! I'll never sell this car. It wouldn't sell for half of what it cost me for the last "rebuild", let alone the other motors that've been in there over the years. I bought this car about 15 years ago, and have had nothing but good times in it. Well, there was the "broken rod punches it's way through my 4-bolt SCJ big block" incident a few years ago, but all the rest have been fun times!

It doesn't overheat or have any dramas that other guys experience. It cruises down the road with a carload full of mates as though it's just a stocko old 302 Fairmont. It just goes a bit better when you put your foot down though :)

Here's what's left of the TRW lumpy-top piston after the rod broke in my last engine....

Re: My 460 XY Fairmont

Oh my God. That is fantastic. Exactly what I wanted to do with my old XR Ute. Unfortunately she stayed with the worked 302 windsor.

You must be very proud!!
