FORD 302 V-8


The best mid-size power plant FoMoCo ever built,
It starts like a riot, runs like a deer and thrusts like a sword to the hilt,

With twin exhausts it seems to throb, much like a Harley's bellow,
Step down and a burst of power will cause your adrenaline to flow,

I love it the best with an overdrive, to add tallness to the axle ratio,
At the slightest urge of acceleration, when ring and pinion gears mesh so

Smoothly, sheer streaking is possible, as in prima facie Montana,
We'll glide o'er the road as Coeur d'Alene Lake once was by See-Wee-Wanna.
