I am not a car person, and I don't usually photograph cars
unless they are rusty and old. When I shop for a car, and the
salesman wants to lift the hood for me, I tell not to bother. I
assume there's something greasy under there that makes it
go, and they wouldn't sell me a car without that thing.

This Mustang grabbed my attention. With the first car that
I owned, I could stand inside the engine compartment between
the fender and the motor and work on it. This thing is jam-
packed with stuff, and I don't know what any of it is.

    rolleyes1.gif The Mustang must have been either a Cobra, or was heavily modified. Was this at a car show? The object in the center of the engine is a blower (power adder), which can take the horse power from 250 to 500 if properly installed and setup. I see alot of custom stuff has been installed, which makes me think they might race this one.

    BTW...Nicely done Tony!

    Yeah, a car at a very small car show...six or so cars in a mall parking
    lot. Just happened to see this walking by.
