    These were great for drag racing. Forget about turning or braking. I always lusted after the Boss 302.

    Those are such cool cars....even a Camaro person can appreciate a Boss 429 Stang....there was a white one listed on E-Bay recently with like 13,000 original miles, don't think it made the reserve at $175K...they do bring big money similar to the '69 COPO Camaros or on some cases '69 Camaro ZL1's.

    Oh my...., just turn up the volume and skip to 7:15 and go for the ride. That was a fun video. Amazing how the front end rises each time he shifted.

    In the early 70's I worked at a Ford dealer. It was a multi-level building. In the basement there was a grabber blue 429 and a yellow boss 302 the dealership owner had. Untitled. Every spring another employee and I would get them cleaned up and ready to go. Take them to the Amoco and get some white gas in them. We'd run them off on the way back to the dealer. 302 won every time. We'd even switch drivers. One mechanic we told said it was a sin how bad the 429's were detuned from the factory. He said it didn't take much tuning to make them scream

    Always liked those. Wonder where that car is located?

    That is one of the things that makes a manual tranny so desirable. I know the Camaros with 4 speed and a good small block under the hood will pull the front wheels just a tad off the pavement with a well timed 1-2 shift. I don't know if the big blocks will do the same as the extra weight slows the transfer to the rear wheels to get air under the front tires.
    If the Camaros do that, the Mustangs will too with the right drivetrain.

    I would test out the back seat with her.
