Without Funkmaster Flex, the $3 billion automobile aftermarket business would probably be worth no more than, say, $2.7 billion — tops. That's probably why Ford's backed its private Brinks truck up to Flex's crib for two years running. This year, Flex signed his name to a customized 2007 Expedition that Ford plans to show off at the SEMA show next week. The modded SUV gets a cosmetics overdub by way of something called the Street Scene(R) body kit, 24" wheels, two-tone black-and-red paint scheme and a custom interior including de rigeur DVD screens and high-performance audio system. No word on whether the truck will also show up as a special marshmallow in Lucky Charms or as a guest character on "According to Jim."
