  4. The Boss 429 is the best mustang of all time the only problem is they sell for like $400,000:flag:
  5. Boss 429 w/o a doubt.
  6. I'm intrigued by the '93 choices.

    I'm not familiar with the Fox body style, so do the '93s have a lot of muscle or what?

    They definitely are the best-looking of the Foxes.
  7. 65 Shelby GT 350
    With a 69 Mach 1 428 CJ 4spd as my daily driver.
  8. Mustang Dream Car #2
    1994 BOSS Mustang

    The BOSS Mustang is the ultimate boulevard cruising machine that can hold its own on the drag strip. This idea was the brain child of SVT chief engineer, John Coletti, and his team, who sought to mix old with new. They achieved this by dropping a BOSS 429 engine into the body of a 1994 SVT Mustang Cobra.

    The car made 855 horsepower, 790 lb.-ft., and it ran 0-60 in 1.9 seconds, 0-100 in 5.5 seconds, and the quarter-mile in 10.55 seconds @ 135.05 mph.
  9. Wow! That is some serious power!!!

    0-60 MPH in under 2 seconds???

    Holy... imagine how much you'd be sucked into the seat.
  10. The race preped boss 429's were one of the badest mustangs of all time and there were only a few with the nascar engine. The regular street version wasn't so great. Remember reading tests on them in hot rod and so fourth back in the day and they were a little disapointing. They were nose heavy and down on power for a 429 hemie. However, there were a few let out on the street with the race hemie and race preped that were to die for. If I remember correctly, it was less than 20 of the good ones, they had a different letter in thier code. At the time ford had to produce 500 of them for the street in order to race them in NASCAR. Don't remember what the actual production numbers were, but it was low and some were better than others. However it was all for not as NASCAR outlawed the hemie from competison. No one thinks about it, but ford had 2 hemies, the boss 429 and the 427 sohc create engine, dodge wasn't the only one.
  11. You're right about the Boss 429 from what I have read. Stock, it really wasn't that impressive, but there was enormous potential in the motor. IIRC, it had to do with the heads being able to flow a lot more than the intake/carb that the car came with, so it was soft on the bottom and didn't have the the torque you would expect, yet the intake/carb didn't flow enough to give the top-end rush that the motor was capable of. An intake and carb swap and it turned into a real screamer though.
  12. Dodge was the only one to coin the phrase "Hemi" for their motors although several maunufacturers made a hemi style head.

    "A Hemi engine (from hemisphere) is an internal-combustion engine in which the combustion chambers are of hemispherical form. The term "Hemi engine" is a trademark of Chrysler Corporation, though they were neither the hemi engine's inventors nor the first to commercialize hemi engines.

    Hemispherical combustion chambers, which had been used for centuries in mortars and cannon[1], were introduced on some of the very earliest automotive engines, shortly after proving the concept of internal combustion engines themselves."

    "Many of today's engines use active combustion chambers designed to tumble and swirl the fuel/air mix within the chamber for the most efficient combustion event possible[17]. These active chambers usually look like kidney beans or two merged small 'hemi' areas surrounded by flat quenching areas over the pistons. [18] By the end of the 1970's, development of the true hemispherical head engine had ceased around the world, and it has been supplanted and dramatically improved upon by newer designs. Today, "hemi" is little more than a copyrighted word that bears little meaning, descriptively, for the engines designated as such."
  13. Other than my own, it would be an '86 GT (hood sticker very important). I had an '85 but there were carbureator problems and it would stall for no reason.
  14. well if we are talking quater mile, the badest ford was not even a mustang. i would go with the thunderbolt. followed by the ZL1 (COPO) camaro.
  15. I would kinda like to get my hands on one of those S197's with the 427 SOHC like that guy in MM&FF made!
  16. If I had money to burn, I would buy another 06 Mustang and install a 428 CJ engine just for the fun of it. For now I'm happy with my stock 06 GT.
  17. It would have to be 1)69 boss 429 2) New shelby gt500 kr 3)emays car
  18. My favorite has always been the 67 fastback GT 390
  19. 1968 Shelby GT500KR Convertible.
  20. 1967 Fastback 427 side oiler.....
