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.

2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon Tested: A Minivan with a European Accent

Oct 23 2014 4:12pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Failure inspires some to greatness and pushes others to surrender. Ford’s response to its previous failures in the minivan market has been a mix of the two. After watching sales dwindle for years, Ford surrendered the class in 2008. But then, a couple of years later, it plopped the Transit Connect into Americans’ laps. An unpolished niche urban commercial runabout with no real passenger-hauling ambitions, it ...

While China and America may generally love similar vehicles, it isn’t always the case, with sales of pickups tanking in China.The Chinese and American auto markets are similar in lots of ways. China is one of the largest luxury car markets in the world, and the same holds true for the U.S. Additionally, China purchases hundreds of thousands of cars from American companies, with more Buicks sold in China than in the United States. Indeed, General Motors’ excellent sales record this yea ...

Ford Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection to Appear in U.S. Next Year, Debuts in Europe First

Oct 23 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Features designed to make up for drivers’ proclivity for inattention have been making their way to production vehicles for years, all of them following the trickle-down strategy: Luxury buyers get backed up by stuff like blind-spot detection, lane-keeping systems, and adaptive cruise control before mainstream buyers get in on the action later. Among full-line automakers, Ford in particular offers its customers a vast array of driver-assistance systems, and it has now ...

Cheap Cars – A Factor for China’s Motorcycle Industry Downturn

Oct 23 2014 12:47pm CDT | Source: Ultimate Motorcycling

China’s Motorcycle Industry Downturn In recent months. I’ve written a lot about the contributing factors for the slight downturn of the Chinese motorcycle industry, mainly concentrating on the ban on motorcycles in Chinese urban centers and the threat from the Indian industry. But there is another factor to the downturn – cheap Chinese cars! Three years ago I wrote about the way that Chinese motorcycles had revolutionized the agricultural in ...
