Now I enjoy your various videos.

but this one sir, I must say thank you for posting. 

That ride is absolutely amazing!  Exactly what I want. 

I have a 70 firebird I've been trying to sell to fund some cuda stuff.   This makes me want to keep it and reminds me of what I had in mind for the car originally. 

Absolutely amazing!

The engineering the guy did is amazing. He should be getting job offers!

A lot of fabulous fabrication work and a great engine, but not my cup of tea. I don't like the stuck-on flares nor the dorky rice racer negative-to-the-max camber in the front wheels, nor the snakes nest exhaust. I also am not keen on the forest of plumbing under the car and it's a good thing that it's a SEMA sled, because about the first real road you drove it down would be it's last. Hats off to it's execution though!  :cheers:

be interesting to see how it does on a road coarse/track.

I question the 10,000 rpm engine limit.

This is what it should be able to do.    And what I would expect it to be able to do if it were mine.

Since you like videos Bob.  Figured I would post one myself.

I'm glad he finally added an old school truck. 
His mustang , as much as I hate to admit, is one of the baddest street machines out there.  Would like to have a cuda skin with all that equipment under it.

A 91 escort at that! One of the absolute worst Fords every made.
 Totally awesome running it with no rubber on the rims.  Makes for some great photography!

We were at the Toronto auto show about 5-6 years ago and were walking past the Ford exhibit where they had a huge LCD projector set up and Ken Block was making an assault on San Francisco in a AWD Fiesta that I believe had 650hp; and we couldn't move! We'd never seen anything like that and the lads have only gotten better/worse since! Unbelievable driving and control!   :burnout:
