    Hard to argue against that. It is, after all, the engine that essentially re-wrote the Nascar rule book.

    Much as I dearly love cars...owning them, working on them, driving them, and talking about them...I'm obligated by my exalted position here to say that an extended discussion of cars simply doesn't belong in the Hearth.com Perfect Picture forum. Let's refocus on the OP's topic (quads' farm auction), shall we? Thanks, motorheads. Rick

    Yeah, you are right. It just gets me all worked up when I see a barn find of such caliber. Vrooom, vroooom.:p

    Hey Quads, keep up with the pics. I find this very interesting.

    Yes, my cousin had one of those too. I believe it was a 1969 Camaro Indy Pace Car. He sold it before he died for $16,000, I think.

    Ford built 427's, 428's AND 429's. 428/429's came later than that Galaxie IIRC. Plus there several different types of motor for each displacement. Especially the 429's.

    Quads,
    Did you know about all this stuff before he died, or are you seeing the barn stuff for the first time?

    I knew about it, although I am not really interested in old cars so didn't pay much attention to what they actually were. I also knew the condition of the houses/hoarding. After he died, I discovered that I knew him better than anybody else.
