Club News from the President!
MCT Members! Things are heating up. We plan to Light up Channelside (Aug
9th). There will be a fancy Yacht in the background and Fireworks after
Dark. The Starship Yacht people have donated 50 dinner certificates for 2
for a future visit to the Starship Yacht. We will issue them on a lottery
basis. We will also have a cruise-in leading to the Channelside show.
Details of the cruise will be posted on Facebook and the website shortly
I expect to announce the details on our Annual Fall show shortly. As well,
Mason Dixon has confirmed his Christmas Wish show in November (Nov-2nd) back
at Bright House Fields. I will get the flyers up to Face Book and our
website as soon as they are available.
There are various cruise-ins almost every week. Check with the Google
Calendar app on the home page for an up-to-date list of events. Our next
Business meeting is August 26th at Bill Currie Ford. I look forward to
meeting all of you there.
In 1970 Ford had produced some of the best Mustangs of all times: Mach 1, GT, Boss 302, Shelby but the most remarkable and mysterious was the Boss 429. The story starts with the NASCAR racing series where Ford had entered with their Boss 429 engine as a competitor of Chrysler Hemi 426. Back in the 1970 to enter in NASCAR, Ford had to produce 500 (originally there were 859 pieces produced of Boss 429) street versions of the particular engine to enter in the NASCAR racing series. But the Mustang never appears on the racing track, instead there were Torino or Mercury.
The Mustang was the only option to get Boss 429 engine in a street legal car. This mysterious 1970 Ford Mustang has Boss 429c.i. 7.0 liter Semi-Hemi V8 engine with Aluminum cylinder head, producing 375 horsepower at factory limited 6,200rpm and 459lb-ft of torque (actual power is around 500 horsepower and is able to rev up to 9,000rpm). HURST four-speed manual transmission and 391 rear end. For us this is the most beautiful Mustang ever produced.
