Ford Truck History -- rise of the F-150
Truck sales and SUV sales have collapsed but the All-American pick up truck
still commands a loyal following. And truck buyers are the most brand
loyal consumers who swear their Ford, Chevy or Dodge is better than the
competition. This was one market foreign competitors haven't been able to
conquer. This short video takes a look at the rise of the Ford F-150, the
best selling truck in America.
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

HiPerformanceDiesel.com 1978 Ford 521ci Sled Pulling Truck
8,800 RPM and 935 HP. Stock 460 block 30 over and 521ci stroker with Flow
Technologies EX514 heads and a Pro-Systems Dominator. This is the engine
break in run before we had a bed on her. This was one heck of a max effort
stock block engine and it lasted 13 hooks before the #7 rod bearing spun
and caused catastrophic damage. Also notice the 4 link rear suspension with
no leaf springs... that is riding on Air Bags! This was build 1 of 2. The
next build was much more interesting!
