John's Tunnel Vision 4L SOHC turbo powered 1965 Ford Mustang. We believe
 this Mustang may be the quickest car in the world using straight LPG
pump fuel (LP Gas) having run a best of 8.98 at 154mph over the quarter
mile at Heathcote Park Raceway recently. The day ended early due to a
rear tyre puncture (28x10.5in slicks).

Man does that car scoot!!!(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley32.gif)

That thing just punishes those tires on the burn out....(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)  Very col car regardless.

Reminds me of an old 28-ish Ford that was at the track many years ago.  Looked like it was cobbled together from parts found out in a field.  This thing was running a V8...can't recall what it was now.  But it was running dual fours on propane!

Everyone kind of snikered and laughed when it came to the line.  I remember it stagged against a nice and shiney 70 Chevelle that looked like it was going to squash this ratty old T.  Well when the lights dropped this little T took off...it ended up spanking the chevelle with a mid 11 sec run!!

The one thing I remember most about this car was the bumper sticker he had on it..."Chrome don't get ya home!" (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)
