Hello all,
My wife, Louise, and I live in Vancouver, WA (the original Vancouver :) ). We own a 1964 Falcon Convertable. Rangoon red with red int and white top. Pulled the 260 and replaced with 64 289 block (5 bolt bellhousing) with 302 crank, rod and pistons. Alum heads, ceramic tri Y headers, 600 cfm holley on Edlebrock performer manifold. 4 speed car. Disk brakes all around. 3.25 locking axel. Car was assembled on my 19th birthday. Came out of Victoria BC, Canada. Looking forward to Brooks, OR event. Nice that it falls on my birthday (15 August).

I haven't checked it. Drove it to the end of the world run last Sept and it seemed to do real well. Had it dynoed at Fast Specialties here in Vancouver. 283.8 HP and 313 lbs of torque.
Yes, it is tough to keep your foot out of it :) . Will you be at the meet?

That is a beautiful car. I hope to be at the Saturday Regionals at Brooks with the Comet, and then at Woodburn with the Cougar and the Comet for the all-Ford event.
