    March Cooks Garage Cars & Coffee!!!

    Nope, the BBR guy is the previous owner of the truck, but he does have a BBF fox body. I think the previous owner is friends with the current owner.

    March Cooks Garage Cars & Coffee!!!

    Too funny!! I watched this truck get built from a stock abandoned CL find...to much of how it looks now on the BangShift forums. 1973 F-250 - Turbo BBF - It's off to a new home! - The BangShift.com Forums He sold it and looks like the new owner has continued the build, looks...

    New Track Car

    I'll be curious to hear you opinion of tracking a traditional manual trans car and now moving to DCT. Love that color combo!

    Lets see those trucks!

    Well at least for GM's...OBS came about during the early 2000's when forums were just starting. We used NBS (new body style) to refer to the current 99-06 trucks, OBS (old body style) for 88-98 trucks and OOBS for square bodys. This worked fine for a while... (eventually there was NNBS for the...

    The HARD TRUTH about EVs

    Yep, I hear you. I can't see where a conversion to ICE over electric makes sense, especially on a nice older truck, but I do find the concept interesting. I like the thoughts of: • 100% torque instantaneously • Overall efficiency increases • minimal driveline components/wear/service The issue...

    The HARD TRUTH about EVs

    I am definitely curious about a fuel over electric concept like the Ramcharger vs. straight EV. But, I'm not convinced that the efficiency improvement is good enough to warrant the effort. The old Chevy volt used this idea, but I don't believe it was VASTLY more efficient than current ICE...

    2025 RAM 1500 | MotorWeek First Drive - No More HEMI V8

    There is a rumor of a variant of this engine in a "TRX" but I assume it would have a significant power increase over the HO 3.0 available in other top trim trucks. This test mule started the rumor. You can hear it at the 27 second mark. Sounds a little Supra'ish....?

    2025 RAM 1500 | MotorWeek First Drive - No More HEMI V8

    I was looking for exhaust sound vids and ran across this CrAzY dyno test rig for the new 3.0. Maybe this is old news, but I hadn't seen a torture test on a dyno that tilts at all angles while running the piss outa the engine.

    2025 RAM 1500 | MotorWeek First Drive - No More HEMI V8

    I'm excited about the power increase, but as expected, the sound will be disappointing... It will be interesting see what the "improved mpg" is. Fords ecoboost motors claimed the same thing 13 years ago...but the mpg improvement wasn't very dramatic, although probably good enough to move the...

    The HARD TRUTH about EVs

    I hear ya! I'm using Fluid Film now, but used Krown for years previously. And as careful as I am...I always find a spot I missed and things get crusty quick. Kind of funny...it seems a lot of the Cybertruck bitching is overly observant owners finally noticing "rail dust", which has been on all...

    The HARD TRUTH about EVs

    Had to chuckle a little over this...guys have been bitching for years about the unpainted rear axles in their $85K trucks turning to a rusty mess instantaneously in the rust belt. The cybertruck is no different. Cars are disposable around here....

    All-New Ford Ranger MS-RT is the Ultimate Street Truck | Ford UK

    I like a lot of Fords smaller offerings...and this may be stupid...but I just can't get over how Fords current small displacement engines sound. I can't go WOT all the time, so the engine soundtrack is a good portion of my driving enjoyment. I suppose if they included a really good selectable...

    Bought one.

    You know which version you're going to go after? I assume in FL, no real reason for AWD, and you've got the truck so no need for the tow package. The hybrid gets good milage...not sure if its worth the extra complexity though.

    Bought one.

    Very cool!! Must be you like it so far, or you wouldn't be putting any effort into it! The stance is spot on and I don't think too low. I wonder if they do a ST version, if it will have the same altitude

    Lets see those trucks!

    That would be SWEET!!! But...only if you can keep the manual trans...(I doubt it would hold V8 power...? Although, there are guys running stout LS combo's in front of NV3500's and they survive unless you get really dumb with them)

    Any 80's/90's two stroke fans in here?

    A buddy of mine gave me a stack of vintage Hot Rods to read. Check out this ad for a '68 Suzuki X5 Invader, 23 hp, 16 second 1/4, 90mph top speed. That must have been a hoot for a little around town buzz bomb!

    Lets see those trucks!

    I hear ya! We get a good pretzel roll, wifey has a secret seasoning for the beef, cheddar cheese, mashed avocado, fried egg, fried onion crisps & brown sugar bourbon BBQ sauce. Delicious! Damn, came in here looking for trucks and went away hungry!! Lol...

    2023 Ford Super Duty Gets Major Power Increases - 500 HP & 1,200 Lb-Ft

    Is it possible to make this much diesel power and still achieve emissions standards...? Or will we see another "cheat" story in a few years and a huge settlement like Cummins?

    Truck Grille Wall Art

    Finally got this thing stuck on the wall. I have some 8" wide aluminum flashing on order...I'm going to try trimming/bending something lightweight that looks "bumper'ish". It will probably look like amateur hour & end up in the shitcan, but I've wasted my money on dumber things. lol

    2024 Mustang Really Is a Dark Horse — Review & Documentary feat BMW M4 — Jason Cammisa on the ICONS

    Yep! I thought the same thing. He can be a little over the top sometimes, but that's part of having an entertaining personality. I agree he is very passionate about cars overall. (I believe he almost completed a mechanical engineering degree, focused on vehicle crash testing, before moving...

    Truly impressed at the insane prices people want for used cars out there on Marketplace

    So this isn't Market Place....but damn!! Am I on another planet these days?!? I LOVE GMT800 GM trucks 99-07, so I watch BAT and see what clean specimens are bringing. This super clean low mile '00, reg cab-long bed, 4wd sold for $45K!!! WTF? You can buy a NEW 2wd F150 with blower for close to...
