Nathan Dempsey Oh man, a younger me would run from that truck just to watch what it could do...

Bob Hall I take that out on Patrol in a nanosecond !
23. October 2019, 05:03
Munkyslut I think your patrol would only take a nanosecond if you took that Bavarian bruiser
Those twin turbo sixes make insane horsepower, I saw over 420 on a chassis dyno, factory figures are vastly understated
Munkyslut Nice one Bob!
Yeah I agree Nigel, I've read it a dozen times now at least.......
When I was a teenager my mate Dave could recite all the girls names & said it was his dream to date the whole list in real life

Tim Heimer Hey Bob! Only 47 more left to build! LOL!
25. July, 21:50
Chaz Gordon haha, I've managed 7 from Munky's Buddy's list. I'd seriously question how many of those were even possible to build.
25. July, 22:16
Bob Hall Yeah, Tim, but you know me well enough to know that I would only build the American ones ! LOL !!!!!!
25. July, 23:23
Munkyslut Bob you could actually pull this off! Imagine the garage diorama!
Chaz.......he had no chance, he was ugly as fuck
Bob Hall One of my favorite non Ford non V8 cars of all time !
27. July, 22:33
Tim Heimer As far as I knew they were all turbo charged V6's. 12 sec cars.
28. July, 04:12
Bob Hall Yeah, FBI had a fleet of these back in the day, as pursuit cars.
28. July, 04:29
Munkyslut Another great job Bob!
You are smashing out the muscle ......... are you a one man production line?
Tim, yeah those Grand Nationals & the last edition GN-X were properly fast from the factory & just basic mods got them deep in to the 12's
28. July, 09:52
Nigel Chapman Hey Bob, that looks really smart. This has to be one of the most underrated 80's muscle cars. I'm going have to find the one lurking in my stash.
Were the FBI versions stock or modified ?
28. July, 22:01
Bob Hall They were visually the same, just didn't have the speed regulator in it, so it was allowed to go faster than 125 MPH and had a special speedometer that read 145 MPH instead of the civilian dash that was only to 85 MPH, and it had a stiffer suspension.
28. July, 22:24
Nigel Chapman Thanks Bob, something else I've learned from the forum.
Nigel Chapman You've done it again Bob, another fine build. The Challenger and Charger do make great Police cars.
In the UK Ford did a demo UK Police spec V8 Mustang which was trialled but not sure if it went anywhere.
28. July, 22:12
Bob Hall Thanks, but this was 2 years ago, but I do like making the cars of my department.
28. July, 22:14
Munkyslut Nigel do you remember the Sierra Cosworth motorway cars? 145mph in the mid 80's was quite something........ a bloody Mini does that now
28. July, 22:17
Bob Hall I think my Shelby can do that in reverse ! LOL !!!!!!!!!!
28. July, 22:25
Nigel Chapman Ah Munky I do. I'm sure I remember Capri 2.8 injections and even an Escort Cossie before every Police force went Volvo V70
Bob Hall Yeah, I messed up by showing the buddy I built the 53 Ford for, he saw it and said " My daughter LOVES hippie bugs" jumps on Ebay finds that same kit for 9 bucks, buys it and turns to me and says " Build It " UGH !!!!!!!!! How could I say no ?
Bob you're not going to believe this! Well maybe you would! I picked up the AMT 73 mustang kit and opened the box to be disappointed again from round 2. The kit I picked up was, as I found out about 2-3 yrs older than the kit you built, even though the chart here says "just a rebox"! Get this, they gave me 2 sets of rims AND 1 teaser rim of the set I needed! Mother Fkrs! This company's crap I am so done with! No more AMT, MPC, Ertl, Lindberg, Ect. Got screwed on the Star trec kit, on the Kitt kit, The Fall guy truck, General Lee, 1/16th Trans am, and the list goes on! Thanks for letting me vent! LOL!
Tim Heimer Amazingly the one they gave me has the logo! I'm trying to see if I can pull off making more of them for now, if not Ill have to hit you up for that set. I'll let you know how that goes. I also noticed on that cheesy kit that there is no mustang logo on the grill. WTF are they doing? So I'll have to see what I can do with that. Was the yellow you used on yours a Ford color?
26. July, 04:39
Tim Heimer I just noticed, no side marker lights and mirrors as well? WOW, great kit!

Bob Hall Was Factory Ford Medium Yellow, and this is what the hubcaps look like.
