Fat N’ Furious 1974 Ford Pinto
A Christmas Automotive customer named Scott wanted to build a hot 12-second Pinto wagon for his son, who is currently in the Air Force. Problem was, another shop had completely messed it up. The Fat N’ Furious crew undid what the other ‘mechanic’ did. They stuffed an ATK Engines 347 cubic inch, 410 horsepower crate engine in the Pinto’s tiny engine bay, Other goodies include an NOS Cheater nitrous oxide system, a Summit Racing Rod Builder exhaust system, and QuickTime electric exhaust cutouts.

Fat N’ Furious 1967 Plymouth Belvedere
Fat N’ Furious pal Tom Paranzino didn’t want much out of his ’67 Belvedere—just 1,000 horsepower, nine second ETs, and nice street manners. The 440 cubic inch big block got a set of Stage V Hemi cylinder heads and a Mopar Performance dual quad intake with two 650 cfm Edelbrock Thunder Series AVS carburetors, plus an NOS Cheater nitrous oxide system. The built Torqueflite 727 automatic got a higher-stall TCI Streetfighter torque converter to efficiently handle the engine’s power and still be streetable.

Fat N’ Furious 1965 Ford Falcon
Tommy Christmas’ old 1965 Falcon drag racer sat collecting dust for years. He decided enough’s enough and decided to rebuild the car to run the 10.50 second class at the final race of the season at Quaker City, his local track. Tommy and his gang bolted in a 425 horsepower BluePrint Engines 408 cubic inch crate engine, a Performance Automatic Street Smart C-4 transmission, and a Currie 9 inch Ford rear axle with a Track Lok differential and 3.70 gears. The Falcon was stiffened with a Competition Engineering roll cage and fitted with front disc brakes, Summit Racing traction bars, and Mickey Thompson ET Drag slicks.

Fat N’ Furious 1973 Ford Gran Torino
Tim Hrina is a fireman who wanted to race his 1973 Gran Torino on a impromptu road course he and his friends set up in an abandoned industrial park. Christmas Automotive replaced the Torino’s 302 with a rebuilt 351 Cleveland outfitted with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Flowtech headers, and a Summit Racing Billet distributor. The suspension was revamped with Moog springs, QA1 shocks, and Addco anti-sway bars, plus Stainless Steel Brakes rear disc brakes. The Torino rides on BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires on Wheel Vintiques Magnum 500 wheels.
