Wanted: Racing Car Storage Space

Posted: January 27, 2022

Help! My racing car is homeless!
I am looking for some garage space suitable for storing a Formula Ford plus a little extra room for my extra car stuff – not much, maybe an additional 50 sq. ft. Does anyone have some space they’d like to rent or share, or have some potential leads?

Have you always wanted to build and race a very quick Vintage-eligible sports racer? Here is your perfect opportunity. Mallock have been building racing cars and kits since the mid-’50’s (Check out their website here.) Mallocks have always been well-known for being fast and strong, yet still practical for an amateur to build and race.

The most popular engine is a Ford cross flow but other engine (maybe a BDA kit?) and drivetrain options (see photos) are quite possible.

For Sale: 1991 Ford Taurus SHO

1991 Ford Taurus SHO – Front View

Updated: July  1, 2021

This 1991 Ford Taurus SHO is a great example of the original classic; a real enthusiast’s car. It is powered by the excellent Yamaha DOHC 24 valve, V6 producing 220 hp and backed up by a five speed gearbox. The SHO delivered 143 mph/ 230 kph out of the box together with great gas mileage.  This example is fairly close to clean “survivor” condition, It has approximately $10,000 in performance upgrades including urethane suspension components, Koni shocks, stainless header and exhaust, and the Wilwood “SHOstopper” brake conversion.

Included with the car are most of the original parts, receipts and spares, including extra Wilwood brake calipers, extra SHO body parts, Ford factory manual and more.  The front engine seal leaks a bit but a new seal and a new timing belt are included.

The current owner has had this local BC car for 20 years. It has 185,000 miles and although it has been off the road for a few years, it starts and runs very well. It would likely qualify for BC Collector plates with some TLC. It is located in North Vancouver.

Update: If you aren’t familiar with the back story of the SHO, watch this recent video (here) from our good friends at Hagerty. As you will see, the SHO is the ultimate ‘sleeper’!

Price: $4,000 (And ask about a special deal for current VRCBC and SCCBC members.)
