Colins car a Ford Anglia (Pop) with a 9000cc 1450 BHP Nitrous Injected V8, which has recently ran a 7.73 second 1/4 mile @173mph at Santa Pod Raceway. He Impressed us all by running a 9.9sec pass at 147mph on our strip which offers zero traction on the line.

Jims car was equally impressive, the 32 Ford Coupe ran a 10.9 second pass which is only .8 of a second slower than his personal best. He has a 7.0 small block V8 which puts out over 620BHP, he is currently working on a nitrous system to fit to the car, which should see Jims car drop into the low 9’s.

Northern Fords organised a run threw Skye and Harris to attend the event again this year. Its always great to see the old Fords scream up the strip and you really can’t beat the induction sound of side-draught webers.
