rock and roll.

It blows me away how much power potential that motor has, for what it is. I mean technology wise, it's a long ways from cutting edge, it's like 3-4 major generations behind the new stuff, like comparing a flathead ford to a supercharged 5.4l out of a GT.

But it still puts out just as much specific power as the new stuff, or atleast is capable of it in the right tune. Absolutly incredible.

Awesome engines.........Big Huge WIDE sleds though. My buddies Uncle has one of those sitting in his shed that still looks like the day it came off the show room floor.

Those Vmax 4 were the shit at times, a bit slow on the start but they would do 115 mph on top, stock!! No other sled will ever sound like that!! Some dudes still used them in drag racing on the big high mod class, and are winning races.
