Living in southern California has its pluses and minuses as car lover. One of the positives is that cars do not rust away.

It is entirely possible to swap an entire Ford F100 body onto a late model Ford Crown Victoria frame, such that you end up with a car that looks like a classic Ford pickup, but drives like a P71 interceptor, which isn’t much better than a classic pickup, but rack-n-pinion and fuel injected V8 is […]
