What we do
We are trying to
enlighten people about this rare and very special muscle car. We
all feel it has been under appreciated and therefore undervalued for too
long. To us, this engine represented FORD's pinnacle design
for small blocks to this day. Whether on the strip or on the street,
this engine had few challengers in stock trim. As far as the body design, it was no
doubt big but it also looked powerful, racy and aggressive. Those of us who
love this body style adore it. It was perfect for the the times.
What we have to share
Each of us has owned a
BOSS 351 for over 20 years. We used to get tired of seeing just us with
these cars at car shows during the years so we decided to band together
to celebrate this one of a kind muscle car.
