Beater Mustang Destroys All Comers at Drag Strip
Faded paint, chips, and dents cover this rad little Fox Body Mustang, but you should never judge a book by its cover.
The twin turbo Mustang is going up against a big block 700 cubic inch, nitrous fed Nova that puts down 1,300 horsepower. But since the Mustang weighs quite a bit less, the match is fairly even.
“With great power comes great responsibility,” that old comic book saying, also applies to drag racing. This Fox Body Mustang has a bit too much of the power, and not enough responsibility in applying that power.
What would happen if you put one of those Tesla electric motors into something with a bit more nostalgia, like perhaps a 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback? Well, you’d get the Zombie 222.
This Fox Body has been everywhere, and has a habit of not only smoking the street class, but also running down the unlimited class of cars that show up too.
