Ford Goes Forward Into The Past
TCC Team/ 11-06-02
While most of the show cars on display in Las Vegas are spin-offs of current production models, Ford took a look in the rearview mirror with its FR100 concept truck. It began life as a 1953 F-100 pickup, noted Dan Davis, head of the automakerís Racing Technology team. Six inches were cut out of the bed, while the cab was stretched an equal amount. Under the hood, the FR100 featured the new 5.0-liter Cammer crate engine, a high-performance spin-off of Fordís mainstay 4.6-liter modular V-8. The new powertrain puts out an estimate 425 horsepower, and will be offered in packages for use in a variety of racing configurations.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
