Snakbit Truck Is a Mashup of Shelby GT 500 and a 56 Ford Truck

Heavily customized truck built by Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed, and Ford

An interesting truck has been unveiled at the 2013 SEMA show called Snakbit. The truck is a collaboration between KISS' gene Simmons and his wife Shannon Tweed along with help from Ford. The 1956 Ford F 100 truck gets styling reminiscent of a late model Shelby GT 500.

The truck has a 550 hp supercharged V-8 engine and six speed manual gearbox. The truck has been lengthened by 5 inches and has a billet machined floor that mimics wood. The interior of the truck is heavily customized with two-tone leather and lots more.

The truck is very interesting even if it looks a lot like a storm trooper for Return of the Jedi. I can only imagine how much work went into making the front end look like it does.

Car Review: 2015 Kia Soul EV

Sep 30 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — Why is this machine not called the Electric Soul? Seriously, picture this: “So, what kind of car do you drive?” “I’ve got an Electric Soul, baby. And check out my sweet platform shoes. Those are real goldfish.” However, “Soul EV” it is. Walk away, not today, disco lady. This smurftastic little tyke is not Kia’s first entry into the electric car market, something the company’s been toying with domestically for decades, but it i ...
