By SID297

Anyone who has been to our Annual “Party  Like a Rock Star” night at the House of Blues during Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach knows that we at SVTP are always looking for an opportunity to throw down.  Well when the organizers of the Inaugural Ponies in the Smokies in Sevierville, TN approached us to be a part of their event we knew there was no chance we were going to refuse.  So in true SVTP fashion we will be host in the Shine Run Party Thursday March 30th 2017 at Quaker Steak and Lube.

Build: Horsepower is in the Forecast

Happy Accident

Sometimes the path reveals itself.

You know, I love it when someone asks how much you have in your build and you can simply reply with “A lot.”  That’s exactly the exchange that occurred in SVTP Member Weather Man’s (Brian) S-197 build thread.  It all started with a deal that was too good to pass up.   Brian happened upon an engine for the right price in the SVTP Market Section and just had to pick it up.  His plans only extended as far as placing it on an engine stand to wait for some project off in the distant future.  Well that’s just not how things turned out.

Not many people know this, but my favorite Ford color is Oxford White (or as I like to call it “Work Truck White”).  If I were going to buy a new Mustang, or Raptor, or Focus RS (ad nauseam) it would certainly be white.  Judging by his 2016 Oxford White Mustang GT, it would appear that Member WomenBeShoppin (Ryan) may have the same sentiment.

Build: Not Just Another Build Thread

Miles Ahead

Whipple powered GT500 built to fly.

It’s been said that speed is the only truly modern sensation.  Perhaps that’s one of the reasons we gearheads are so drawn to massive power numbers and triple-digit top-end runs?  One thing is for certain, there has never been a better time to live for those who want to be on the cutting edge of top speed street car performance.  With each of the big three producing massively powered blown cars in the last couple years, those want to hit a buck-fifty plus need only have a bit of a fearless streak a straight/open strip of asphalt.  But what happens when bolt on levels of high-speed performance just aren’t cutting it anymore?  It’s time to build.
