On any given month, our features and other content are a bit of a jigsaw puzzle that involve factors I never considered prior to jumping into the crazy world of automotive journalism six years ago. “What make and model is it?” “What kind of power adder does it run?” “What color is it?” “Street or strip?” These are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The questions we consider in trying to make sure we don’t over-cover any particular “flavor” of high performance street machine and wild door slammer drag car are extensive. While we aren’t people pleasers, per se, there’s a fair portion of our day, week, and month committed to ensuring that we are bringing you, beloved reader, more of what you want. That’s why we had a bit of an “oh crap!” moment when we first realized that we potentially had two “similar” cars snagging significant real estate in this month’s issue. We haven’t run a first-generation Mustang in a while, but somehow, someway, we ended up with not one but two gorgeous, brandspankin’-new builds ready to be immortalized in the August issue. “Let’s hold one and run the other next month,” one staffer suggested. “But what if we get scooped? They are both ready to run and you know how important it is that we feature cars first,” another responded. “What’s for lunch?” yet another asked, apparently more interested in his own needs than yours (Editor’s note: This employee was sent to HR for immediate disciplinary action. The reader ALWAYS comes first here at RPM.) After much debate and more than a little hand wringing, we decided to push forward with both. This month. Right here. In these pages. Before anyone with a Ford t-shirt starts celebrating, any Chevy fans start pouting, or any Mopar fans grab their torches & pitchforks that seem to be always at the ready (Admit it—you know you’re a passionate bunch. Both of these ’Stangs are actually Hemi-powered, after all!), allow us to explain why we opted to buck with our typical policy. First of all, even though they may happen to be similarly bodied, there’s way more different than the same going on here. RPM has growninto a happy gathering of horsepower junkies over the past 20 years, but there’s a strong contingent who’d love it if all we ever ran were features on wild, top-shelf pro mod and related varieties of strip-only purpose-built drag cars. For your viewing pleasure, we offer up Jon Webster’s stateof-the-art 1967-bodied beauty. Another strong contingent of our readership likes drag cars, but they drop in every month to see their real true love: small tire grudge cars, fat-tired pro street, or the dual-threat street strip builds that are probably more similar to what’s actually sitting in their own shops or garages. Don’t worry—Rob Matheis’ 1965 pro streeter has got you covered. The differences don’t stop there, though. One was built start to finish in just 12 weeks. You read that right: in less time than it takes most of us to decide on what finish we’d prefer on our intake manifold bolts, Jon Webster built his entire car from the ground up and was ready to go racing. Meanwhile, Rob Matheis’ build was probably more familiar to most: a sixyear-long battle of wills beset by one hurdle after another before he finally unveiled it in time for this summer. One is in England. The other is in Missouri. One is big cubes and monster turbos. The other is a small Hemi with a more street-friendly induction and fuel delivery setup. One is all glass. The other is almost all steel. The point is, don’t be so quick to judge. RPM readers come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, countries, and brand affiliations. In a world that seems so intent on pointing out our differences and using them to divide us, we say that those differences are a true strength. That diversity brings interest. And that interest brings awesomeness. And even if you don’t totally dig what we’ve served up this month, rest easy friends. We’ll be sure to have something different for you next month. That’s the real beauty of it all. Now that that’s settled, what’s for lunch?COMING NEXT MONTH: Truck Tech...........................................................................We tried to get out the ol’ hauler in time for race and show season, but it wasn’t quite ready for action.

As impressive as the build is top to bottom and front to back, the most incredible fact is that it was built in just three months. Please don’t ask us how long we’ve been building any of our project cars.10august 2019 | RPM Magazineto back it up, as the only “safe spaces” of that bygone era existed behind a pair of your own capable fists and courageous disposition. Fighting has certainly been around since the days of Cain and Abel, however, the sport of boxing came about within the past 150 years or so. And while fighting is a free-for-all, the “sweet science” of boxing was intended to allow two boxers the chance to compete toe to toe withsomeone roughly their size. Weight classes help ensure that boxers have a fair shot against an opponent. Typically, the lighter the fighter, the quicker and more agile he or she is. And the heavier the fighter, the more powerful and explosive he or she is. It would stand to reason, then, that if you could combine minimum weight with maximum power, you’d have the ultimate weapon of destruction.That was certainly Jon Webster’s plan when he and the team at his very own Webster Race Engineering (WRE) in Northamptonshire, England put together this incredible 2,389-pound Hemi-powered pro mod 1967 Mustang. And the end result is one bad hombre. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that they did it in just 12 weeks from start to finish!www.rpmmag.com | august 201911CLASS OF ITS OWNTWIN TURBO TERROR The 500 ci AJPE Hemi powerplant is further encouraged with the positive pressurization provided by a pair of 88mm Precision Turbos.FAST FROM THE START Building a competitive pro mod car for national and international competition is hard enough—doing it in under three months is a Herculean feat of planning, hard work, and execution. The first step was to create a strong but lightweighttube chassis from 4130 chromoly. WRE handled the feat in no time flat, incorporating Strange Ultra struts on adjustable top perch mounts up front and a fabricated housing with a Strange Ultra case on a custom 4-link and Penske 3-way adjustable shocks out back. Strange carbon fiber discs were installed on all four corners.
