The all aluminum Boss 429 (OK, so it's a little bigger) built by Ford and Roush Racing
Hey Matt, smile and say "HORSEPOWER"
Now where am I going to fit those
turbos, hmmm, move that coolant can, a little cutting/welding
on that intake, I think we've got it!!!!
I think I may have to build one of these someday, Gotta love big blocks.
This could be a fun race, my money is still on the BOSS though.

OK, so maybe I'm a little biased on this one, hey I'm allowed to be, I helped build it.
Making the necessary preparations
for the next event. I was one of the 2 drivers for the acceleration
event (no surprise there) during the
1997 competition and was lucky enough to make the fastest accel pass of the 1997 event.
Hanging a turn in Penn State's #10.
These cars are truly a blast to drive, 80 turbocharged, intercooled, methanol injected horsepower in a 450 pound car is one sweet combination.
If you like cars and attend a school which has a Formula SAE team, sign up and get involved, it is a great learning experience.
