History
Bought by my late uncle from Sitstout (Spelling?) Ford in Amarillo, TX. Family stopped driving it in the late 1980's until my Granddad gave it to me for my 15th birthday in 2001; 15 years later it has too much go and not enough whoa (3,700lbs, 540hp without nitrous, all four wheel drum brakes. Uses a lot of room at the end of the dragstrip to STOP!!!)
