 “Honestly it’s about to fall apart and I don’t feel safe riding in it,” said Taylor.

“I feel pretty cool when I’m driving it,” said Spencer, “and obviously it’s really fast.”

Spencer’s Cougar has a 289 small block Ford.

“I’ve already done a lot of work to my car,” said Spencer, he is working on getting wheels and tires at the moment.

Spencer got it out in Sacramento, California and had to trailer it back

It took him eight months to get it where it is now

“I’ve replaced almost all the interior,” said Spencer

You can see Spencer at the car shows in the County Market parking lot next summer.
