Tasca Super Boss 429 on Display
One of the most exciting Boss Mustangs ever built, the Tasca Boss 429, will join the Boss Car Nationals at the Carlisle All-Ford Nationals. Providence, Rhode Island, Ford dealer Bob Tasca was heavily into racing and he received a 1969 Boss 429 Mustang from Ford. The car was a blueprint for the limited-edition Super Street Boss 429s. With a modified 494-cid Can-Am engine, an automatic transmission, and a visually striking multi-hued paint and graphics scheme, the "Super Boss," as it was dubbed, was the showpiece for the Super Street program.
 
Meet Bud Moore, Racing Team Legend (Saturday Only)
The leader of Bud Moore Engineering, Moore became involved in Trans-Am racing in 1967, teaming with such drivers as Parnelli Jones and George Follmer. His car won the Daytona 500 in 1978 with Bobby Allison and he won the Daytona 400 with Allison in 1980. His cars won races piloted by Benny Parsons, Buddy Baker, Ricky Rudd, Geoff Bodine, and others, and with Dale Earnhardt behind the wheel, won the Talladega 500 in 1983.

Car show attracts nearly 50,000 to Carlisle

By Staff Writers, June 16, 2005

The year's Carlisle All-Ford Nationals brought out 48,983 Ford fanatics June 3-5, the highest number since the show began in 1995, organizers say.

 record 2,625 cars sparkled on the Carlisle Fairgrounds' show field. More than 1,200 vendors sold all sorts of Ford-related parts, accessories and memorabilia.

The largest gathering at the show was the Boss Car Nationals: Boss Cars Reunited, which brought more than 275 Boss cars, more than ever assembled anywhere at any time, says Carlisle Events, organizer of the show. It included Boss 302s and 429s (made from 1969-70) and 351s (made only in 1971) on display.

Numerous competitions were held as well.

In the Mustangs & Fords dyno challenge, Neville Pinnock's 1972 Ford Torino won for the vintage Fords in the '65-'73 Mustangs vs. '60-'73 Vintage Fords contest with 375 horsepower. Highest horsepower of the day was 432.1 in the 1994 "Captain America" Mustang owned by Mike Clifford.

{Sofia Duncan, a fashion designer from Ottawa, Canada, won the title of Miss All-Ford Nationals and $300.} The winner of the burnout competition was Donald Ross Jr., who smoked the competition in his 1978 Ford F150 pickup and won a $100 gift certificate to Advance Auto Parts. In the Wing Eating contest, Harry Harvey of Enola consumed 25 hot wings from North Hanover Grille the quickest to win the prize.

The Merkur Club of America won the trophy for having the most club members at the event, representing Ford's German marque with more than 200 members and cars to help celebrate the Merkur's 20th anniversary. The Fairlane Club of America and the International Thunderbird Club came in second and third in the Club Challenge.
