This is a 1955 F100 short-bed truck married to a 2009 Crown Victoria Interceptor. It is a truck that literally stops traffic wherever I drive her. It is the convenience and comfort of a new car, with the panache and style of a mid-century truck. It was a custom build that took almost 15 months...but was worth every second. I am changing careers or this sale wouldn’t even be a consideration. Some of the key details are, magnaflow exhaust, vintage air, Foose custom wheels, custom mirrors, custom black suede and rust herringbone interior, new red oak bed and a full air bag system. The fire mist copper paint is so remarkable you almost can’t look directly at this truck in full sunlight.

My oldest son, Rob, and I purchased an old farm truck that had almost as much rust as it did clean metal.
Let’s say you are buying your dream car, and you really can’t decide between the classic look of an old truck, or a modern muscle car.
So, what do you think is the fastest-growing segment of car collectors? European sports cars? Rare muscle cars? Classics?
An upcoming exhibit tracing the history of Ford F-Series pickup trucks since 1948, announced for January by LeMay seemed like a good jumping-off point for today’s Pick of the Week.
