Car of the Day 11/28/18

Today’s car of the day is this ’68 Mercury Cyclone that was at the 2018 Daytona Turkey Rod Run. The Mercury Cyclone is a car that was built on the same platform as the Ford Torino. The engine of this one is a 7 liter V8, but I’m not sure how powerful it is. The transmission is a 4-speed manual. It was made as a tribute to Bud Moore and Tiny Lund, and it’s owned by Rich Moore.
