This past Friday, my esteemed colleague Scott had his '69 XR7 428 SCJ 4-speed car up and running, so I had to take the opportunity to take a ride and get some footage of it. What an awesome car... it has a feeling of effortless power. And the original exhaust sounds great!

Commence gratuitous Cougar porn...

And here's a picture of the car about 3 years ago from the SoCal nationals... looks like he changed wheels/tires

Nice!

In one shot the paint was so mirror-like and reflective that for a second I couldn't tell exactly what was going on!!

Yeah, and he hasn't even washed it for a year!

Another "fun fact" about this is that we ran out of gas after pulling into the park... at which point I took the sitting-still shots at the beginning of the video. The gauge doesn't work...

He did that runnig-out-of-gas trick at one of the local shows down here a couple years ago.

If you think that video is wild, you ought to see him get it all squirrely and sideways.........

Cool Cat. Scott's car helped inspire me to get done with my paint job about ten years ago.

Thanks! Me too... I'll be taking full advantage of where I work.. :evil:

Nice vid but need more tire smoke!!
And more cow bell.
Agreed on both accounts! I kinda wish we had more time to shoot, but it was a spur of the moment thing and I wanted to get some footage of the car to possibly use in a promo video in the future.

Haha... yeah, I was a little disappointed that I got in the shot, but it ended up being kinda funny that way :lol:

Bookmarked! For those rainy days (all 317 of them each year) when it's too wet to drive like I really want to.
