    Ed Prout The plaything. Boss Ford power. Ed was a wild and crazy guy bought junkyard short blocks and put good heads on them in his Ford dragster. He was also CHEAP he used to take my one week old spark plugs ( I got new plugs every week from my dealership free) and use them over and over.

    He is also a genius on ford FE engines I learned A LOT from him.

    Not unusually large just looks like it with that intake and what appears to be one of Pete Robinsons/George Montgomerys' "trimmed" style blower cases.

    Besides it is a rare 1960 Chrysler town and country, the plate designates it as a personal car of the danish royal family. Cool shot, Bomb, keep on with the good stuff!

    The lane on the left accurately describes the Gulf Freeway; I'd rather get my ass beat with a broken axe handle than drive that road. It takes over an hour to go from Cypress to NASA, smh.
