It seems like as soon as it was upon us, it was gone (for those of us with children, first day back to school seems to unofficially mark the end of summer). We look back on the triumphs and tribulations of Summer 2014 in the FullSizeFord camp. The 1/4-mile Marauder again failed to leave the shop (we were so close this time!) due to other projects taking precedence. A match race set up with a friend’s 2009 Subaru Legacy AWD never materialized as we fought to prepare it by the September 19th deadline which signaled the last Friday Night Drags of the season. We most likely could have made it there with the car but passing tech would have been a different story. Guess we’ll have to wait until next year on that one.

Hopefully by the end of the month, the 1/4 mile Marauder will make it’s way down the tarmac at Spokane County Raceway. Just for fun we’ve tentatively set up a grudge match with a 2009 Subaru Legacy.

Stay tuned to find out…….Read More
E-mail requests to firstname.lastname@example.org for anything specific you are seeking. We can also in some cases locate parts for other years as well. We also have a good supply of used Ford Truck parts from 1961 to 1979. Some parts are compatible with Mercury and Lincoln offerings as well.
*FYI at this time we have no convertible specific parts on hand.
The ’55 was sold last weekend and is now in the care of a new owner. All of 73 years young, the new owner planned to have the car running within a couple days. It joins a ’55 4-door with a 6-cylinder and three on the tree already in the new owners stable.Read More
Yeah I know this one took a while but other projects just keep taking precedence. This poor Mercury sits in the back corner of the shop and is usually the last car to get attention. Anyway, the front wheel cylinders are done and the new master cylinder is installed. Just need to freshen up the carburetor and the ‘ol Merc should be somewhat road-worthy.Read More
Some FullSizeFord eye candy form Couer d’ Alene, Idaho’s big summer car show event. We apologize for the poor photo quality, these were taken from a moving (our own 1961 Ford Galaxie Club Victoria participated in the event) vehicle with an Iphone.
One of my friends shot this cool ’64 Galaxie at an off-road race down in Baja.Read More
