He is a very distant relitive of mine. I am Sanford Block, and he is Kennith Block. I have never met him. He drives for Ford. Thought to be one of, if not the best stunt drivers in the world. as well as a serious racer!
I had another Cousin who was FEMALE and was a high speed & endurance driver for Chrysler Corporation in the 1956 time period when Chrysler was introducing the SPORT FURY into racing. Her husband got a new Imperial LeBaron every year, in the 1960s. My parents were not into cars...but I am !! My folks were both lawyers and bought Imperials, but not every year, usually keeping the car for 3 years. (That woulda been Dad's)
car. My Mom always drove a Sport Fury Convertible with the "Golden Comanado V-8 (2 steps down from the "Hemi".
I know Ken Block is religous. Every car he races and/or tests has a large yellow Star of David (Jewish Star) on the driver's rear side window, but I do not know where he lives and/or makes his primary home.
I have owned 4 Imperials, 1968; 1972, 1975, and a 1982 - but I am NO racer - far from it !!!

I've seen this before. Ray forgot to mention something, that popping is not the little Ford missing. He's hitting the rev limiters!
Awesome!

I thought that looked familiar - just like rush hour traffic in Charlotte !!!!

That needs to be the next "ride" at Disney World.

He tags the wall screaming into the track at minute 1.26 (notice the new black mark he leaves) - not that I could do any better - I'd probably leave a continuous black mark on the wall and other white undergarments --- heh heh.

Cool

Eric

Yes, They did a Ford RS 200. It was possible to have it street legal in Europe. I have read somewhere that it was never possible to have it legal in US.
