So at the Abilene I ran into another 71-73 owner while working the drag strip and picked his brain a little bit. He started out with a 73 but he didn't like the blinkers, bumper, stripes, or gas cap, so he changed them to a 71-72 style and a 71 flip cap full tube chassis. his 351c was bored .030 over and runs on e85

The mustang ran too fast in the bracket and lost ( I still don't get how you can loose by going too fast) he ran a 6.82 eighth mile when his bracket time was 6.86
