OH BOY is that Ford T-Bucket even driveable?!? With almost 1200 HP and a blower directly in front of the driver's seat... LOL... and the interior matching the paint... that was just beautiful.

It's powered by a hopped-up Ford 223. My friend built his engine similar to the one that holds the current Bonneville speed record for the vehicle & engine type. (During his research, he ended up meeting the guy who built & raced the real deal!) Gets a lot of attention at the local shows!

Good looking old Ford! That's quite a pedigree! Good to see your friend saved it in it's original form. I wonder what the record holder thought of one of the prototypes escaping.

Not much love for my Mustang? I am 43 years old and worked my whole life for something cool again. It's amazing for the price.

Shahram, that's a beautiful Mustang! Tell us more about it. Since I'm not intimate to these new Mustangs, I can't recognize the model. Is it a six, a V8 or the new Ecoboost? is it a stick? And are these wheels OEM?

Its a V6 with foundry package which really is all u can do to upgrade the V6. $1000 option package that includes those 18" wheels as and upgrade from the 17s, LED foglights, a power drivers seat and the lip spoiler. The V6 now makes 300hp and is faster than a GT of just a few years ago. The price point of this made it possible for me to own one and it doesn't look like it's neutered like V6 used to. Also better gas mileage and much lower insurance. I don't drive fast, this is perfect. Oh and its an auto. I thought about stick but i drive in traffic mostly, and now a days automatics get better gas mileage than sticks. The plus side to the automatic is it comes with paddle shifters and remote start. I love this car! I am 43 and the last time I felt like this I was 19 years old.

I had one, too! As you say, not the hottest car I ever had (with the 390, I believe) but was an awesome date-night cruiser!
