Scott Miller's Cougar @ Drag Week 2016 WOW!
« on: September 13, 2016, 09:18:08 PM »
Hey Everyone, I learned a bit about Scott Miller's 68 Cougar today and wanted to share the coolness. Somehow he is running 9.1 @ 143 on 9" tires with Caltracs then driving about 200 miles each day. It boggles the mind. I hear he has a 502ci FE with Edelbrock Pro Port heads, Swartz tunnel ram, QF 850 carbs all done by our own Mr. Blair Patrick. Scott's not even using a transbrake. Checkout this wheelie from just flashing the C4 off idle. I am impressed...

Bad to the bone! Maybe Scott or BP will spill us a few beans. I thought he ran a 'Glide with a Gearvendors last year?

That is very, very impressive. The Millers are good folks, congrats to them and I hope the next three days go as good as the past two.

3300 pounds... is that with driver? Aluminum block maybe?

That is one bad engine in that Cougar, I am impressed for sure. Excellent ET... wow is right! Makes my Cougar look like a kitten.

Congrats to Scott and his dad and also Blair for Patrick power. I also think it is cool that that was the family "high school" car for Scott and his siblings.

Its a baby roller Tom.  .695 at the valve.  I did some things to help it flow without having to lift it to .900.   I use that cam in a bunch of Nostalgia type stuff......but if we could make a big boy live 1000 miles, there is quite a bit more in there.  A good bit left in the vehicle also, but Jack did a great job setting the car up as it is.

Listen to Scott's burn out. Sure sounds good. Brian Lohnes could hardly contain himself.
