Those of us with a few years under our belts remember when the Paxton planetary-drive blowers were the only game in town, and actually running across one on the street was a real surprise.Those early planetary-drive Paxton blowers have since given way to such impressive offerings as the gear-driven Novi 1000, 1200, and (my favorite) the ever-impressive Novi 2000. Also featured will be awards and live entertainment. Fridays through September, Grand Avenue, Escondido. Open to all cars, trucks, race cars and motorcycles.
Dozens of motorcyclists performed stunts and delayed traffic, even shutting down parts of one highway.
Though it may be difficult to believe, superchargers actually predated the fuel-injected 5.0 Mustang.
Where early Paxton blowers were hard pressed to support 500 hp, the modern Novi 2000 is capable of more than doubling that number.
Paxton now offers self-lubricated models of these impressive blowers.
But there are many categories of antiques displayed, including vintage model trains. More than 450 miniature, working internal combustion engines and more than 150 steam and Sterling engines.

To us at MM&FF, it wasn't until 1986-when Ford replaced the carburetor with a long-runner fuel-injection manifold-that 5.0 Mustang supercharging came of age.
Modern 4.6 enthusiasts have the 5.0 to thank for the current crop of superchargers available for modular motors.
