In 1977, my wife and I took The Boss on a long distance run from Omaha, Nebraska to Colorado and made the run of a lifetime up, and down, Pikes Peak. Before leaving, all our friends told us to lean up the carb and give it all the air we could. I laughed them off and we headed for The Peak. The closer we got to our destination, the better the Boss ran. The Dept. of Roads in Colo. just finished banking the curves and doing their best on the road. We made it up in just under 45 min! Then, back down in 31 min., all without touching a thing on my carb!! The higher up we got, the better The Boss ran! Used 9 lbs. of transmission grease gearing down on all curves to make the fast downward run, and filled it up at the Sinclair Station at the bottom. As the mechanic filled the tranny he said “you had a lot of fun. I heard your motor and tires for the last 15 miles coming down and wondered what kind of machine was running today and why.” I smiled and said, “just out for a nice run.” Paid the man and talked about that run all the way home. 682 miles. Never touching my carb or adjusting anything. That’s the best The Boss ran……ever. God Bless Ford Racing and The 1970 Boss 302. Pure Stock and 10.91 E.T. was my best run at the track in Nebraska. I love that car.
