Engine builder’s mood really shows through.
So this is a weird one. SVTP Vendor, and all around nice guys, Pro-Dyno recently made a somewhat interesting discovery. While tearing down a Terminator engine for a rebuild they found that a previous engine builder had left them a little surprise in the form of eight smiley faces, one on each rod.
When you really have to get the groceries.
Once you’ve owned a Terminator you’ll never be the same man again. No matter what car you get next you’re always going to be longing for the raw-untamed fury that was SVT’s final Cobra (at least for the time being). So what happens when you have to do the responsible thing and buy a new ride that’s a little more family friendly than a Snake Car? Well if you’re long-time SVTP Member CobraBob (“Bob Arthur”) you turn to the 2.7L Twin-Turbo Ford Edge Sport.
SVT Power Play
Clean SN-95 with dead motor rescued.
Just ask anyone who has talked future classics with me over a couple of beers, and they will tell you that I long believed that SN-95s will be the next popular project car. For past 10 years or so the venerable Fox-Body has dominated the ground-up Mustang build market. Alas, clean project Foxes are getting harder to find and more expensive to purchase if you do happen to luck-up on one. However, if we skip one Mustang model ahead; clean SN-95 Mustangs (even SVT Cobras) can be had at bargain prices.
Kid’s love for SVT runs deep.
If you’re a ‘car guy’ now, chances are you were a ‘car kid’ once-upon-a-time. You probably even remember a significant car in your early life that helped shape your current automotive fashion. Chances are it was your Dad’s, Grandfather’s, Uncle’s, or some other family-member’s pride and joy. Well for SVTP Member KilledbyKenne (”Justin’s”) 4-year old son Lukas, dad certainly had the right car to kick off an automotive addiction.
