History
I bought this black beauty from a lady I worked with. She only wanted $500 and I drove home. The engine is still basically Ford Y-Block but now has all forged internals. Believe it or not, this freakin' beast was featured in Y-Block Magazine back in April 2009.

You should see the looks she gets now at the redlights... when I purge the nitrous.

Additional fuel for the nitrous system comes via an eleven-gallon fuel cell (Speedway Motors) and a Holley "Red" electric fuel pump. The nitrous bottle is carefully camouflaged by a rickety wooden box bolted down inside the bed so I can maintain the "sleeper" image.

Interior
No AC, no radio, no 4-way flashers, no reverse lights, no fancy wipers, no power steering, and the heat is compliments of the headers running just beneath my feet.
Exterior
Well, I do have a "Folsom State Prison" sticker in the back window so not too many people are ballsy enough to violate her. The bed is '67 Ranger, grille is '63 F-350, and the paintjob is Walmart rattle-can Flat Black. Not too bad for $26.00.
Audio
Whelen Police 200watt PA/Siren....just to annoy my neighbors and move the IDIOTS driving too slowly in the fast lane here in San Antonio.
Suspension
Factory leafs all around with two springs flipped in each of the front packs to drop me 2.5 inches. Gotta love low-tech, old-school.
Wheel and Tire
Stock steelies, 16x8 all around. BFG mud/snow-terrain tires.
