What would you do with a 100 year old dirt track racer? Would you Just leave it in your garage to rust, or would you drive it to work on Thursdays? I think I’d use it as an occasional soccer game carpool machine, but first I’d need to figure out where I could put a […]
This next car is such a radical blast from the past, but with some late modelish stuff inside. It looks like it was built in the era before microchips, but it is powered by an Oldsmobile Quad 4 motor in the legendary W41 configuration borrowed from a Olds Cutlass Calais or Achieva SCX. The original […]
Imagine it is the year 2122 and the planet is still inhabitable…and inhabited by something smarter than roaches. Some of those people might be your kids/grandkids and I’m having a hard time seeing them driving a 2022 Ford F150 Lightning with original powertrain. I can’t begin to imagine how hard it would be to get […]
The passenger cabin of this next vehicle looks like a ride at an old fashioned amusement park or a county fair. It probably also drives like an old fashioned amusement park ride on the street, which is going to be both rickety and thrilling in equal proportions. I approve.

It is funny that you can’t buy a convertible pickup from a new car dealer today (at least since the SSR went out of production in 2006) because the convertible pickup has been a common form of transportation for the better part of human obsession with the wheel. Remember Ben-Hur? Charlton Heston’s chariot (technically a quadriga), was basically a Roman equivalent of this next car. What? Yes, it had wheels, a spot for the driver, and place for junk. Because to do work with a vehicle (regardless if that work is to transport someone places, or move stuff, or wreck someone else with spinning wheel spikes) what you really need is a propulsion system, a spot for the driver, and a work bed. Everything else — flappy paddle gearboxes, touchscreens, massaging chairs, rear seats, electric windows, opera lights, landau roof, any roof, 4-wheel-drive, airbags, cigarette lighter, ashtray, warranty, navigation, bluetooth, 8-track, et al — are simply luxury items. Get back to basics with this 1926 Ford Model T Pickup offered for $5,200 in Opelousas, LA via craigslist. Tip from Ramjet.
This next car is a tribute to all those Datsuns that’ve gotten Ford V8s shoved into their engine compartments, because a swap cool the first time you see one, but sorta lame the 50th time. And I’ve got to admit that I don’t think I’ve seen a Datsun 510 powertrain shoved into Model T…have you? […]

Find this 1927 Ford T Bucket here on eBay offered for $5,695 buy-it-now or make-offer. From the seller: This is a Once in a lifetime Opportunity, history, legendary, Fast and […]
Whenever I see a Shelby Cobra driving on the street, I instantly assume it is a kit car…not that there is anything wrong with that, just that I’m probably dismissing the few real Cobras that might not be sitting in museums or climate controlled garages. In a similar fashion, I also smile when I see […]
