1988 Mustang 5.0MM & FF Magazine shoot

I built this car many years ago for one of my favorite customers Terry Schroeder. When he first brought the car in it was a completely stock daily driver, but after many modifications and wanting to go faster and faster, the car became a complete drag car. I bought the car when Terry decided to move on and buy a new 2004 Cobra. It felt great to buy the car that I had spent so many hours on. After many years of building cars for other people I finally had the opportunity to keep this one for myself. Since then, my son Vince and I have built a new engine and made other changes to the car. Our goal was to make the engine compartment as clean and neat as possible. The car has always been garaged kept and the original paint still looks new. The red and grey stripes were added to bring more color to the car. It now runs 9.95 at 141 mph in the ¼ mile with a 1.321 60’ time. In the future we plan to add an air to water intercooler to gain even more horsepower.
