SEE VIDEO OF THIS CLASSIC TRUCK IN ACTION ON YOUTUBE:
This is a 1954 Ford F100 pick-up limited special edition. The chrome grill and spare tire mounting are original and only equipped on the 1954 F100 special edition. The Truck was totally "off frame" rebuilt and modified by a custom hot rod shop in Hollywood CA. The Body was lowered and custom fabricated steel fender skirts were added. Engine is a new Ford Cleveland racing motor with all additional parts and equipment in chrome, including a Hilborn style chrome air scoop. Custom chrome panels installed on firewall. It has a new 9" rear end, and a new front end, a new fuel ejection system, AC CELL DFI microprosessor controlled ignition system, new 3 speed automatic transmission, new power brakes, power steering, power windows, power door locks, and power hood air scoop installed. A complete new Mopar suspension and new shocks and bearings installed. It has a complete new custom interior with center council and chrome "Ididit" steering column, leather steering wheel, new "Dolphin" chrome gauges and chrome "Billet" pedals. Chrome plated running board ribs. There is a 12 disc 200W JVC stereo MP3/AM/FM/CD player installed. New "Vintage" heat and air conditioning system. Chrome grab bars at truck bed were added. Only the body, chrome grill and oak wood truck bed is original. The body has never been dented and has no Bondo. Custom painting under hood include Marlin Brando, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean hanging out at a 50's drive in diner. I wasn't with them! All the custom hand painting (not vinyl), including interior dash adornment, was done by Gary Glenn, famous custom hot rod painter in California during Ed Roth's "rat fink" days in the 50's and 60's. This rod has "flomaster" dual pipes which together with the Ford racing engine sound like a ferrari. It will peel rubber in every gear even though it's an automatic transmission. It was test driven at over 110 mies per hour at the "Michigan Speedway". The paint finnish is an eight coat process with two additional clear lacquar coats and is absolutely flawless. The motor and whitewall tires have 6,600 miles on them. This truck was intetionally created to simulate a hot rod as customized in the 50's including chrome headlight half shields, duel adjustable spotlights on each side, and a custom matching windshield visor. I took it to a few car shows for a couple years after I completed the restorations and modifications and it won trophies at every show. Over $120,000 invested. Asking price $89,000.

As the smallest team in the sport, it wasn't really a surprise when Dodge decided to pull out of NASCAR, but Autoweek is reporting that Ford is looking to pull the plug on its professional-level NHRA sponsorships following the 2014 season. With attendance and television ratings down, the article reports that Ford is just backing out of the top series but will remain active in the Sportsman classes of racing, which are geared more toward the grassroots and semi-professional racers.

This means that one of drag racing's biggest names, John Force, will be left looking for new sponsorship after next season. Force, 64, has been with Ford for 17 years, winning 15 championships in that time and winning almost half of all Funny Car events in his Mustang since he started working with Ford in 1997, but after 2014, there could be some big shakeups at John Force Racing.
According to the report, Force would consider is moving over to the Top Fuel dragster series, although he could also move to another manufacturer to remain in the Funny Car series. With Ford on the way out, this leaves just Toyota and Dodge as the remaining active automakers in the highest levels of drag racing.
Ford landed itself a spot among the top 10 brands in the 2012 Buzz Rankings. The annual index scores 1,100 brands in 41 categories to determine which nameplates had the most positive buzz throughout the year.

For the third year in a row, Subway took the top honors overall with a score of 40.3, and Ford was the only automaker to break into the top 25 by earning a sixth-place finish overall. The manufacturer earned a score of 32.1 points, which was enough to push it up one spot from the 2011 Buzz Rankings. Honda managed 21.2 points overall, which is still well behind 25th-place Kohl's at 26.5 points. Toyota, Volkswagen and BMW all round out the top five automakers.
The 2012 Buzz Rankings also keep track of which brands improved the most over the past year, and this year, Toyota was the manufacturer with the largest leap forward. The Japanese automaker jumped from just 14 points in 2011 to 20.5 in 2012. Chrysler, Kia, Dodge and Volkswagen all saw sizable steps forward as well.

Oklahoma recently saw the destructive power of an EF5 tornado, but in the aftermath of the devastation, we've also been witness to the incredible resilience of the human spirit. Moore, OK resident Jack Haden survived the storm but found that his 2003 Ford Mustang wasn't quite as lucky. As you can see in the image above, the tornado's 200+ mph winds did quite a number on the car, but while most people would have likely called their insurance company and scrapped the car, Haden had other plans.
After finding the car and seeing that its V6 still fired up, Haden spent a couple hours getting the car, um... roadworthy(?)... by removing the doors and front clip, cutting off the roof and putting on some new wheels and tires. He noticed that driving it around brought some comic relief to an area that needed a reason to laugh and smile. Check out the KSBI TV news report video below showing before and after pictures of the tough 'Stang, as well as a video showing the newly lightweight coupe doing a smoky burnout.
