Fast forward several weeks, I’m at a different car show, and I see this truck-shaped beauty. From a distance I thought it was quite cool because you don’t see many of this body style out there in the wild.

It’s low. It’s menacing. It’s basically everything I have ever wanted.

To start off the week, I’ll post up one of my favorites. It’s a 1953 Dodge B Series Truck that I had originally spotted (pre-roof chop) over on killbillet.com several months ago.

I’m going to show you how! . . . → Read More: How To Get The Phillips Screw Out Of The Brake Rotor
Since we were going to be brutally beating driving our own vehicles on the course, we began the day with pre-race vehicle inspections. The driving instructors needed to make sure that none of us had any planned trips to the nearby hospital. Once all of the vehicles passed the safety test, we signed a waiver and began learning the basics of autocrossing. Certain cones meant certain things, and if you ignored the rules, you would likely end up looking like a jerk in one way or another.
