Here is the description from the publisher:


If there is one thing Ford Enthusiasts have learned over the years, deciphering which parts work with which engines is a far more difficult task with Fords than with many other engine families. Will Cleveland heads fit on my Windsor block? What is the difference between the two distinct families of big-blocks? What heads are available for use on my small block? Can I gain compression by using older model cylinder heads? Which pulleys should I be able to use on my engine swap? These are just a few examples of common questions Ford fans have. These, and many other questions are examined in this all-new color update of a perennial best-seller.

Thoroughly researched, High-Performance Ford Parts Interchange includes critical information on Ford's greatest V-8 engines and goes into great detail on the highly desirable high-performance hardware produced throughout the '60s ,'70s and '80s. By combining some of the best parts from various years, some great performance potential can be unlocked in ways Ford never offered to the general public. Following the advice in High Performance Ford Parts Interchange, these engine combinations can become reality. You will find valuable information on cranks, blocks, heads, cams, pulleys, intakes, rods, pistons, and even accessories to guide you through your project.

Author George Reid has once again done extensive research to accurately deliver a thorough and complete collection of Ford V-8 information in this revised edition. Knowing what internal factory engine parts can be used across the wide range of production Ford powerplants is invaluable to the hot rodder and swap meet/Ebay shopper. A must-have for every Ford enthusiasts library.

 Every October the Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania Region of the Shelby American Automobile Club hosts their annual NE SAAC Regional Meet in Harrisburg and Hershey, PA.  The meet is always great and features a Friday evening social, a Saturday breakfast, road tour, lunch at Bill Collin's (BC Fords) shop, a Saturday evening program, and a Sunday car show at the AACA Museum. 

If you have not attended, you really should make plans to do so next October.  It is a great place to meet up with your old and new Shelby friends.

This is part three of our images from the event.  The pictures here are from the car show held on the last day of the event at the AACA Museum in Hershey, PA.  I had so many up-close, detail shots that I don't really have many images of the complete cars!  Anyway, enjoy the pictures!
