A 1965 Mustang Returns Home 50 Years Later

It was love at first sight when Terry Maxfield spotted a Caspian Blue Mustang at Loudon Motors in Minerva, Ohio, back in 1965. Their affair lasted through five decades, countless memorable moments and a cross-country move to Arizona.

Recently, worried that the Mustang would deteriorate in her exposed carport, Terry had a great idea: She would return the vintage car to the dealership where she purchased it. Greg Loudon, who was only 5 when Terry bought the car from his father, was now in charge. Stunned at its incredible condition, Loudon purchased the Mustang back—but insists he’s just storing it for Terry. She’s allowed to visit the beloved showroom centerpiece whenever she likes.

A Box Van Can Do A Lot Of Things Inexpensively

Note: Please turn sound up!

Tom Garcia of Marathon Truck Body shows off a 14' Dry Van Body mounted on an E350 Cutaway Chassis. Check out the Lift-Assist on the cargo ramp! Those things are heavy, but this feature sure makes it easy. Sometimes it is the simplest things that are meaningful, like that sliding door without rattles.

Since a Dry Van Body is just a box on wheels, there is so many modifications that can be made to make it more useful for individual company use, such as, side doors, walk-up side door openings, windows, translucent roof, E-Track, plywood lining, Gelcoat lining with added insulation for refrigeration to just keep things cool or to keep them frozen. Plus there is the ramp as shown, liftgates, railgates, swing-away doors rather than roll-up doors and the list goes on and on.

The Tow Test And Frame Twister! - Top Truck Challenge 2015

You know what a truck pull is, right? Well our tow test is way better: our track extends 150 feet, climbs 13 feet in elevation, and has a maximum angle of approximately 16 degrees. Each competitor’s rig is tethered to 5-ton 6x6 weighing in at over 36,000 pounds. Each competitor is allowed one pull, no time limit. This event grabs competitor’s full attention, because it’s the first event and has the potential to quickly weed out weak components.

Through the years, the Frame Twister has evolved, and for 2015 about half way into the course, competitors arrive at the infamous Squeeze Rock section facing boulders, the dogleg, and the dreaded log section. In case you’re wondering, the Frame Twister at Top Truck Challenge really has twisted vehicle frames over the years. It has also wasted driveshafts, destroyed tires, and thrashed suspensions. Each competitor is allowed 10 minutes to complete the Frame Twister course. Hey, you didn’t expect it to be a run-of-the-mill first day did you?

No Strings Attached | 2015 Ford Trends

Ford Futurist Sheryl Connelly dives into the “No Strings Attached” trend and helps clarify how brands like Ford are adapting to the consumer shift.

While many people think collaborative consumption and the share economy are driven by altruism, they are also driven by personal benefits like freedom from responsibility and maintenance. And in a world where innovation is moving so rapidly, no one wants to be stuck with what’s quickly outdated. To satisfy financially-constrained and commitment-phobic cultures, more and more platforms are emerging to let us try out experiences and goods without putting much, if anything, down.

Vendor Spotlight: Transfer Flow

Increase Range and Capacity with a Transfer Flow Fuel Tank System
Go Stronger. Go Longer.
Long distances, high fuel prices, and harsh elements are just some of the challenges you and your truck face on the open highway. With a range maximizing in-bed auxiliary fuel tank, or larger capacity midship replacement fuel tank from Transfer Flow, you can hit the road knowing the strength and durability of your heavy-gauge, aluminized and powder coated steel, or diamond plate aluminum tank, will safely and legally allow you to tap every last ounce of your truck's inherent towing and hauling capabilities.

When duty calls, Transfer Flow can take your truck's rugged capabilities to the next level with a complete line of DOT legal gas and diesel refueling tanks which will fit almost any make, model, cab, or bed configuration, and includes several toolbox/fuel tank combinations designed to securely store those precious tools of the trade.

After 30 successful years, Transfer Flow continues to supply the automotive and RV industries with the highest quality, most complete fuel system products on the market. Before you purchase your next high-capacity fuel system, consider this: when your pickup can tow a 22,000 lb. fifth-wheel across the country without breaking a sweat, don't compromise the quality or performance of your fuel system with a lightweight tank. Rather, go with your gut - go with a Transfer Flow fuel tank system.

Interesting Twist On Royal Contractor Body

I was delighted to see this very interesting truck body at Lehmer's Buick-GMC in Concord CA ( recently. Having worked in the truck body business for 10 years, I used to see how long it would take to make a custom body, but most body companies have a line of standardized bodies that can be slightly modified to serve the client and get it done quickly. This truck is a perfect example of this concept.

It was originally a Contractor Body, which is a flatbed with a tapered headboard, upper body boxes with open top lids like a service body, underbed boxes, a load-divider board across the back of the upper bed boxes, short "contractor style" gates around the rear, a tapered HD rack and trailer receiver and trailer plug.

This truck has been converted into a pseudo-welder body in that these modifications have been done: 1. The upper bed boxes have closed top lids which allows for mounting of things on top such as a compressor, generator and more. 2. The box on the streetside is 6' instead of 8' and moved rearward to allow a 2' gated space for a welding machine. 3. Bottle brackets, rings and chains are mounted against the headboard on the curbside for welding bottles. 4. A diamond plate steel floor. 5. This unit has a class 5 receiver instead of the more common class 4. 6. The rack was not installed because this client wanted to build a custom rack themselves.

This client worked with Royal Truck Body to create this great modification and in the process saved themselves a lot of money over building a custom "one-up" body.
