I would have to agree NOS is a good idea if you can secretly set it up and donít put too much of a punch in or it will be obvious. LOL that could be funny.

Get a NOS controller.. depending on the model you get.. they have those that you can set up so it gradually adds more at certain RPM... besides.. if you loose.. just open up the NOS bottle and take a few good whiffs.. and laugh all the way back.. congrat him.. and go for the solid rocket booster like speedguy said.. hey.. a Bonneville Batmobile ?!?!?

In all seriousness, the number of cylinders and at least whether it'* stick or auto will tell alot on this one. I really believe no Father would (in his right mind) give his 17 year old son a HOT 65 Mustang.

Here'* some close data:
0-60 1/4
1964 Ford Mustang (289ci V8 w/4spd) 7.5 15.7
1966 Ford Mustang (289ci V8 Auto) 10.9 17.9
1967 Ford Mustang (390ci V8 w/4spd) 7.4 15.6

1992 Ponitac Bonneville SSE 9.5 17.0

Now you see why the type of tranny is an issue. Stock to stock, it may simply come down to driving/shifting ability, and all-out balls. My advice? Have some fun, but be ready to eat some **** at school if necessary. OR take him on a one-mile road course. If he'* a stock 289auto, you probably have him. Just don't blow your car up.
Little things like a bad plug/wire, dirty air filter, worn rings, can all make the difference, but then again, his is a '65, right? 2 years older than me, and look what shape I'm in.

Ok donít be posting pictures. If you post a picture ill be forced to...I donít think the site could handle it.

I personally would say best out of 3 and put sugar in his tank. LOL Ok that was mean.. Actually from those #* you might want to make sure he has the right car. Otherwise you are toast. You could also find a friend with a SC Bonneville and put the 92 grill on it. Dude I would move around this one until you are ready. Pull a plug wire and tell him you are having engine problems from the last Mustang you roasted. It happens. At that point if he had any secrets he will let you know. Then you know what you need to do to slam him in the future. Best of luck.

I contracted with the government in Canada for years and years that breedí* crazy thinking. Actually I learned how the internals of both the US and Canadian government works and its scary. My only advice for those who want to remain pure in this world ...donít watch TV get a nice old v8 car and live in the suburbs between the country and city. Drive your car to your predictable 9-5 job and donít I repeat donít stray from the path.

For those who want a bent disastrous life it all starts with ridding a bus and talking to people who you donít know like they are your family. LOL that should get you on the wrong path in no time. Or the most exciting way is to jump a rental in SanFran.

#1 if you get caught you are not used to the hills. And max it costs $150.00.
#2 should have mentioned this before you rented the car, get that $9.00 insurance.

Obviously this is a joke. Steal the car .

Okey dokey, guys. Josh told me it'* a 302. That'* not stock for a 1965, and he doesn't know if it is stick or auto.

We may be back to Ty'* sugar solution, but not any time soon. The kid in question doesn't even have his permit yet, much less a license.

On another vaugely related note, I saw an interesting licence plate on my way back from a Taco Bell run tonight. Didn't get the chance to test him, as he was in front of me on a residential street, and I work with the local police.....but here it is:

Early 1990'* Mustang with aftermarket dual exhuast.
Oregon License plate "GOT NOS".

If that doesn't give Drifter a woody, I don't no what will. This mustang owner probably gets ALOT of PD attention.
