WTF? (Where’s The Fun?) - February 2014

Fiery Bird

Who: Mike Doyle
What: 2002 Pontiac Trans Am
Where: Fulton, Missouri
Why: We like the cool, purposeful look of Mike's Trans Am. He says he's done some basic modifications, including upgrading to Trick Flow heads and a Vengeance Racing cam. He also has some BMR suspension parts, a Strange S60 rear, and a 4,000-stall Yank torque converter. The combination is good for 11.80s at about 114 mph at the track.

Alternative Body Style

Who: Otha Starkey
What: 1978 Ford Mustang II Ghia
Where: Marysville, Washington
Why: Otha says his first car was a 1957 Chevy he bought in 1967 when he was 16 years old and has been hooked on cars ever since. He's currently proud of this Mustang II he's dubbed White Stallion. The driveline is all-original with a 302, a C4 transmission, and an 8-inch rear. Otha is working on some body and paint issues before freshening up the engine with a new cam and headers.

Long-Term T-Bird

Who: Gary Skelton
What: 1965 Ford Thunderbird
Where: Collingwood, Ontario
Why: Gary says he's been working on his Thunderbird for 14 years, and he's finally almost done. Originally painted green, Gary's car is now finished with a titanium-metallic paint. He rebuilt the 390 with a Crane Energizer cam, an Edelbrock Performer intake, and powdercoated headers. Many custom touches can be found inside, including a GM basket handle shifter in the center console. It rides on an air suspension from Ride Tech, and Gary says he drives it a lot during the summer months.
