    Loved that car until I saw under the hood. Wish they had restored it original.

    Some neat full size 4 speed cars coming up at Mecum Indy. I like this one too.

    While I may personally may have entertained a high end Poncho, stock just doesn't fit the new personality they've created in this car. We could probably agree that a driving experience with the current drivetrain is far more likely to put a smile on your face than a 338 h.p. AFB fed 421.

    Don't even start with the brakes. LOL

    1972Mach1 Just some guy.....

    If anyone doesn't know what that engine is in the car, look it up before writing it off. It may be LS based, but it's pretty much just the block. Dual overhead cam heads and all kinds of cool tech. I can't think of a better power plant to have in something like this car. I wouldn't change a thing.

    Someone spent some big bucks on that build. Nicely done.

    It had giant BALLS for a big car!

    My mom's old boyfriend had a '62 Ford Galaxie 406 tri-power 4 speed back in the day. He said one night he lined up on Woodward against a new Catalina 421 tri-power 4 speed. The Catalina beat him so bad he said he traded the Ford for one the next day! And he worked for Ford at the time.

    nice, but wheels are a little donk-ish for me...where's the lambo doors & the flat panel TV screens?

    That's the only thing I don't really like about this car. It's cool that they stayed true to the "8-lug" design but I don't care for the size they chose. They would have looked killer as 18's or maybe 19's tops IMHO. I still LOVE that car, big wheels and all.

    Wheel size is VERY subjective! Too big for me, not so big to you. And the beat goes on..............
