Default Thunderbird at Goodwood Revival

Morning all

Goodwood, my spiritual home...!
Carl has posted a link to a youtube clip of this Nascar replica in the Anything goes section of the forum. Hope you don't mind me posting a few pics of it here. Bill Shepherd usually brings a Mustang or Galaxie to Revival, but as the class this year was for cars 1955-1959 he prepared this stunner. Anyone like to hazard a guess at whats involved in the disc brake conversion ? The side exit exhausts must be 4 inch diameter, it makes a glorious noise...and yes that is me trying to make off with it..

Jon

My 2-cents worth (Kiwi cents at that!)
The air filter is too small, too restrictive.

But what a great car, so cool!
