A Ford Mustang Funny Car that recalls the early days of Funny Cars before the NHRA had a Funny Car class. To make extra bucks the guys would replace the two big 4 barrel carburetors on their A/FX cars with fuel injectors and go match racing at drag strips across America. It was some of the most exciting drag racing ever and unlike today's Funny Cars if you drove a Ford you had a Ford engine under the hood. This one is powered by one of the "Baddest" engines to ever run the 1/4 mile. A 427 Ford SOHC semi-hemi. This design is what happens when you let old hippies design race cars.

I have been searching for a Fox body mustang for a year & a half. I used to be able to trip over these things constantly on the way to school & all of the sudden, I couldn’t find one on the street to shoot (I guess I should have gone to a drag strip). Well, I went to a mustang show in a nearby town & they had a few… now I have made the shirt (profile & rear to follow).
