    Ok
    looked like a Fairmont, back in the late 80's my buddy had a Fairmont sedan, we nicknamed it "Fairmonster" not because it was bad, but because it was uglier than a red headed step child. :D

    383 & 440 Plymouth Wagons, some of my all time favorite cars. We used to race our wagons out by the old dog pound.

    When I was in HS, folks had a 69 Vista Cruiser with 400 engine. Don't as me how I know, BUT that wagon would burn a new set of snow tires right down to the cords!!!:D

    I LOVE Sleepers! Always wanted to build one. Something about absolutely crushing the ego of some smart-a** in his new mustang.

    I could be wrong but I beleive that is a twin turbo small block hiding in that jewel. Being a Ford racer myself I hit the Mustang sites too.
