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.

2015 Toyota Tundra Drops V-6 for All V-8 Lineup

Sep 15 2014 5:09pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Low Take Rate Spelled End for 4.0L V-6With the success of the 3.5L EcoBoost V-6 in the Ford F-150 and Ram selling plenty of both the 3.6L Pentastar and 3.0L EcoDiesel engines in the 1500 truck, you’d think downsizing is the name of the game for fullsize truck brands. Not for Toyota. Buyers have overwhelmingly chosen V-8 engines for the Tundra, prompting the company to drop the 4.0L V-6 altogether for 2015. Only about five ...

Triumph Motorcycles Twins & Triples | Rider’s Library

Sep 15 2014 4:33pm CDT | Source: Ultimate Motorcycling

Motorcycle Library Retro Review Tim Remus’s book, “Triumph Motorcycles Twins & Triples” predates his book “Triumph Motorcycles from Speed Twin to Bonneville.” Both books, however, begin with what is perhaps one of the most striking classic Triumphs ever built — an amaranth red and chrome pre-World War II Speed Twin. From there, the 96-page softcover book leaps to the post-war years with a look at the very rare 1953 “Blackbird” American special 650cc Thunderbird. Remus, a professional p ...
