    It'll be Like its been to Lot 6....


    Its Back to Lot 6 day tomorrow in Australia.

    Where Drag Racing Guru Al Turner birthed the GTHO 351 W Falcon.




    HF said “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” https://www.fordgtholot6.com/history

    See https://oi1215.photobucket.com/album..._al_turner.jpg



    He's unable to be in Aussie for the 50 th, but remember.

    Al Turner will be inducted this November 2019 in Detroit Michigan.

    A well deserved recognition of a life time body of work within the Motor & Motor Sport industry, both in the USA,
    & Australia and other countries such as the U.K., Germany & Asia.


    So, there are Heaps and Heaps and Heaps of V8 Ford Die hard's all over the world doing it for you!



    Think on that.

    The 5.0 SEFI will give you even more fun than your 351W. World wide, everyone wants to see your Capri sit up and begg!

    Nope, the 224-258 Mahoneys Rd Thomas town, Whittlesea, Victoria portal frame buildings may be divided up, but still where it always was.



    And nice work.




    You've done well, you have your own Lot 6 in your driveway, Joe. I know you can work your magic with one hand tied behind your back.

    When I almost lost my thumb in a wood splitter, I thought my world was gonna end. The cool stuff like right handed Guitar, doing alternator bolts and power steering parts and cam belts got so hard, I just thought there was no hope. Having to make service tools for Jap Crap has been the biggest bane of my life, though. The Electronics side is much easier, because people like my shop forman boss, old Ford starlwarts like Ak Miller, Dick Johnson and Rob Herrod, and the video on EECIV and the Formula One Turbo V6 Benneton racer Cosworth and Ford UK and USA put together, they just inspired me to trust the Engineering, and work through the processes. I cannot do that with Japanese Nissan and Toyota stuff, although I can with Mazdas, Mitsubishi's and Isuzu's.

    I haven't heard back from Terry C on his 6 cylinder White Black Magic you lovingly "fettled", but for sure your great American work has hit Australia with your BM,

    And Big Al's great Australian GTHO work has hit America with your Two Door Falcon.

    So there we have it.


    I'm still working on my Fox Mustang Suspended and wheeled and 79 Cologne engined AWD Toyota RAV4 5door. In 2010, we got two as business cars, a His and Hers. Shear XK-E-type 2+2 roof-line chic and wide body Styling sold my Mrs on them.



    Each of the cars had the 2.0-liter 3S-GE BEAMS engine with 177 hp, but all this muLti-valve crud makes it un-serviceable; IMHO, a Lamborghini Urraco is a better option. And it does 21.3 us mpg around town, more than my XLT 4.0 Explorer 5 Speed. Its like a cyanide laced Blue Candy Apple.

    I'm still trying to feel quilty...but I don't.

    The body panels are festooned together, quite unlike a Honda, or, gasp, a good old Ford.

    Five service tools just to do a head gasket and timing belt replacement.


    Run away, buy a Taurus or a used 500 with a door ajar light error. Something you can fix, rather than it Fix You.

    Everything I disliked, the IRS, the twin cam engine and its 23 engine rebuilt service tool parts required, the Nuckin' Futt's gearbox, the steering gear position, I've just started replacing it with proper US Fox 4 Mustang IRS, Fox engine, Fox T5 gearbox, and front Mounted Fox steering gear with a few off the shelf Merkur Scorpio bits to finish the four wheel drive.

    I cannot tell you how much I hated working on the RB25 Nissan Stagea and all of my Toyota my numerous multi-valve four and six cylinder "CraPAYolla's". The dollars I spent won't ever return on those. Never Again...

    Although its hard initially because of the "I wanna simply this stuff" mentality we all have with all the VECI and EVTM stuff, the Fox Ford DNA has so much grass roots support, and it was mass produced with much love.

    Like proper US and Canuk made Ford stuff, it's gotten that golden Model T Ford service life embedded into its heart from birth.

    Mercury Capri. Best looking Factory Hotrod thing ever.

    Ouch is right. Mine is collecting parts, for now, and is under cover until ready to be stripped, prepped for paint and assembly.

    Nailed the smog and got nailed on the cost again. Just like Terry's Black Magic.

    Dont worry, itll be a high to mid 13.5 quarter horse and 150 mph at 5450 rpm in 5th with those parts. While it passes the stickshift sniffer IM test. Naturally. Natch!

    Hey Joe, your a lot smarter now. Your driver just has to be smog legal.

    Just make sure you use the 1.5 k investment to have some epic fun.

    I guess you didn't have a stock four cat OEM pipe set to put in. Does it have to be the 94 or 95 EO numbers stamped on the cats, eh?
