Sorry about the water on the floor and steam - we were testing during a
friggin' monsoon and the rainwater started pouring in through the Dyno room fan opening -
sideways! Did not seem to hurt anything - but it never done that before...

Kirkham 427 first engine run
First engine run on KM647, on a cold Chicago day (15f). It is an all
aluminum 427 (454 cid) Ford FE made by Survival Motorsport. Has FAST
EZ-EFI fuel injection, through a set of TWM stacks. It made 541 hp / 550 tq

running very rough right now. Stay tuned for more videos.
'69 Shelby Cobra GT 500
Sail down the coast with a '69 Shelby Cobra GT 500 full of passengers. A
shade of blue/green that is just mesmerizing to look at. Almost as perfect
as the day it was delivered, still has the "Starting Instructions" flyer on
the driver's sun visor and the addition of Carroll Shelby's signature on
the glovebox lid. A beautiful example of this quintessentially classic
From the owner:
Restored by Keith Craft in 2010. Repainted to its original color of
Gulfstream Aqua. It currently has about 55,000 miles on the ODO.
It has its original matching numbers 428 CJ engine and top loader 4-speed
transmission, and original interior (though the seats are in storage so
they don't get worn out).
At Mustang Northwest's 19th
Annual Mustang Roundup, the
car took 2nd place (was painted black at the time).
Won a silver medal in 2010 at Mid America Mustang Nationals.
More recently it was selected as one of the top 20 cars at the 2011 Shelby
Bash car show, placed third at the La Jolla Concours, and won second at the
2011 COCOA Concours de Nice (pronounced the "nice" not "niece").
To preserve the original engine, I had Keith Craft build a 427 side oiler
which is being installed this week. That should give the car quite a bit
more power, while allowing me to store the original engine for
Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch

FE Big Block Ford 482 stroker dyno pull
Stroked 427 makes 680 foot pounds of torque at 3700 rpm. Lowest pull at
2800 rpm made 540 foot pounds. This motor is an axle breaker, 482 cubes
of power. Dyno
flywheel setup makes a weird noise at the end of the pull, not for sure why
it does that. lol.
