Here is an interesting story that is obscured by time. Thought you all would be interested in seeing this, thanks to Rod C.
"Story goes Secret Service had Ford engineering build a couple of 427 engines for their boats that they used to 'keep an eye' on President Johnson at his lake. The President wanted to show Hank the Deuce his unbeatable, fast Donzi.
When Henry II walked by the idling Secret Service boats his head spun around so fast, recognizing a familiar sound, that the Secret Service rushed up and asked him to keep it a secret. They said "we only let the President think he has the fastest boat on the lake, but we can overtake him in a heartbeat thanks to your engineers", LOL. You could get a Ford in just anything, Rod."
