So, being it's my birthday I thought I'd post this here too, it's the same car, color and motor. What a fun car it was (and still is I hope). Ford

Thanks for Bday wishes. Mine was actualy the 425 horse model ( in stock form) with a two four barrel carbs. At one point I handed the motor over to a famous machinist for some slight upgrades and to a speed shop for balancing. After that it was just a brute, and the best fun!

Back in my early twenties we used to race towns (from one to another). Silly stuff but Hey, I was just home from Vietnam :eyes:

...Those were the times.
In my early twenties, what is now my daily commute, I used to do in less time with a Renault 4 (cheap popular car, small engine 4 sp) than I do now with the Mercedes Benz.

Ah those R4's... They had something special to them. Encountered one on the highway lately, Gordini blue with matching stripes. Bit of a contradiction, but still a special vehicle.

Those had good brakes, and good mass distribution, the transmission is centered, once you get used to the lever. The soft suspension would let the car lean a lot on turns, but a sway bar could be installed to correct that.

Sometimes less is more.
The car is so ugly that is funny...
