Tripper,You would not beleive it until you seen it.I worked for Toyota for over 11 years as a service tech.All the small 4 Cyl's are the best cars you can own if you have to commute.They get Killer gas milage and just about maintenence free.

IMO

Just been there and done that

It's got a 60 over 454 with ported Merlin Heads and a Extreme Energy 274 cam. It's also got dual quads, which run 1 to 1. I'd get better mileage if I went to a single 4 barrel, but I like multi carburation. Small blocks can get away with running the rear carb on a dual quad setup, but big blocks will lean out the front cylinders and run hot.
A friend of mine runs dual quads on his big block 34' Ford coupe. He saw my setup and switched to 1 to 1. His temp dropped 15 degrees.

My dad in his car taken out the rear window of my Anglia.


Some other cars. Taken out the front window of my Anglia.

Hey the driver of that Mazda even gave you a wave. Pretty cool. It looks to be nicely maintained too.
