Who out there runs a Ford street stock? I ran a 1979 Thunderbird (strut-bar front suspension), but now I am building a 1985 Crown Vic that I shortened to 108" wheelbase and put a 1984 Mercuty Cougar body on it.

What motor do you use? Exhaust? Intake?

How competetive are you at your track?

Any helpful tips?

Thank you,

Dirt Newbie

I do set-ups for any cars from streetstocks to latemodels. One of my customers runs a 1972 full frame Torino at I-79 Speedway in WV. He finished 4th in points,but may have finished higher if not for some bad luck here and there. The cars must weigh 3200 or 3300 not sure, but his car out weighs all of them at 3900lbs. It has a big block 460 motor in it. Handles well for as heavy as it is, should be alot faster this year. We have found some things to make it better. Sure wish we could make it liter but no where to save any more.He's not going to run for points this year either,so he should do better.Bye P.S. If u need any help e-mail me at But not if u run in this area, could'nt do that to him unless u bring it to my garage. LOL
