Street Rod Hot Rod Pickup Show Truck Chevy 350 Vintage A/c Disc Brakes 56 57 on 2040-cars
Flint, Texas, United States
This truck has 5200 miles since its rebuild with quality components. Attention to every detail is evident throughout, from the boxed frame to the finished paint. The chassis utilizes a Mustang front end, a Ford 9" rear end, power disc brakes on front and drums on rear, chrome rear shocks making the ride smooth. More than ample power is provided by a highly detailed 350ci motor, bored .30 over, with a RV cam and headers. The Matson 4 core radiator is aided by an electric cooling fan and is powder coated but retains a highly polished brass top tank. Under the reverse tilt hood is a feast of bright chrome, billet and gloss paint. The B&M floor mounted shifter connects to a 350 trans that has been rebuilt with a mild shift kit taking the horsepower to the rear. Crager wheels and BF tires all around, sit at the just right stance. The bed is finished with red oak and stainless steel strips and rear fiberglass fenders are widened 3". The interior is designed for looks and comfort, finished in a striking combination of gray with accents matching the exterior color. Comforts of a tilt steering column, Vintage Air, great sounding Alpine stereo with amp, and monitoring by original, rebuilt, gages keep the interior a pleasure. The exterior fit and finish are beyond reasonable description, from the meticulous detail to the color, it all exhibits quality. A great ride, weather on the freeway or cruising on Saturday night, this is the one for a lot of fun filled times.

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor sales jumping to new heightsThu, 12 Sep 2013
Ford can't seem to build F-150 SVT Raptors fast enough. The off-road-ready trucks have been one of the Blue Oval's most reliable sellers, with record sales in eight of the last 10 months and a 14-percent jump in 2013. That's impressive enough, considering that the least expensive Raptor starts at $44,000. Factor in the modded F-150's fuel economy (it's rated at 11 miles per gallon in the city and 16 on the highway) and a national average gas price, as of this writing, of $3.55 per gallon, and its success is as unlikely as Ford's home team, the Detroit Lions, winning the Super Bowl this year (sorry, Lions fans, we're just quoting the experts in Vegas...).
Yet for some reason, Raptors spend an average of just 15 days on dealer lots before being snapped up, which is a quarter of the 60-day industry average. According to Ford's truck group marketing manager, Doug Scott, it's capability that keeps the Raptor selling strong. "What's helping drive Raptor sales is that Raptor delivers unmatched off-road performance to our customers. Raptor is also proof of our commitment to offer a truck for every customer and continuously improving them to meet our customers' evolving needs."
To address the strong demand for Raptors, Ford will bump production from three trucks per hour to five. Not much, we agree. But building an extra 48 trucks per day, at most, seems like a prudent way of addressing demand without oversaturating what is ultimately a niche market. Check out the press release below for more.
Michigan museum offers Model T driving classesSun, 29 Dec 2013
Halfway between Detroit and Chicago, there is a car museum that gives visitors a unique level of interaction with antique cars. The Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, MI has a driver's training class to teach people of any age to learn how to drive a Ford Model T.
From the crank starter to the column-mounted throttle control, this driving school teaches people all there is to know about driving and operating a Model T. Each class lasts about two and a half hours and is only open to 18 students. There are ten sessions planned for 2014 - twice a day on May 3, June 22, July 22, August 23 and September 14. The class costs $95 (or $85 for members), and it also includes a tour of the museum's automobile collection.
In addition to this driving school, the museum has plenty of exhibits on the property, and it's open all but three days per year (Easter, Christmas and New Year's Day) with free admission for school field trips and active military. Be sure to check out the Gilmore Car Museum's website or visit them on Facebook for more info.
