I am thinking of making a Ford Thunderbird pure stock. I checked rules at North Central Speedway, Brainerd MN and a 1990 and newer T-bird fits the requirements for wheel base at 113". 1" larger than mininum. Everyone runs Chevy Caprices up here and I was wondering if anyone has ever tried it.

We have never ran a 90 or newer but we do run an 86 model in Street Stock and we love it. The 90 and newer will have independent rear supension. That would be neat to tinker with. You might as well give it a shot.....there needs to be more Fords out there giving fits to them Chevys!!!

There is a ford at Midway Speedway in Crooksville, Ohio and da@# that car is fast. I thought I was turning some good laps and by lap 4 he was putting me a lap down! His # is V1.

I built a 90 for the enduro at princeton (had lots of engine problems)and ran it at the axe in brainerd last year (still had engine problems) but it still kept up the first night with a bad push. You will never have to worry about traction with one. It rained for about an hour before the race at Princeton and I was the only one who could even move one track when we went out there. see ya at ncs if you build one!
