For sure they were the most unexpected cars I recorded at the event, but at the same time something I really focused my attention on.

They should be both powered by a Ford 427 (7.0-litre) V8 engine, which was adopted by Ford back in the days in order to meet NHRA and NASCAR 7-liter maximum engine size rules.
