Any vehicle that is post-op car to car-truck hybrid is bound to be a bizarre creation, but switching a rare example of a long defunct brand like a 1953 Nash is pretty much guaranteed to up the strange factor even further. Behold the Nash-amino.
Blah, blah blah, Ranchero, Yada, yada, yada, El Camino. Let us not get into a debate over the merits of car-based pickup trucks, let us only bask in the awesome possum that is today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe SHO Taurus truck, the only debatable element of which may be its price.
53 years ago today, Chevrolet introduced the1959 El Camino to the automotive world and it hasn't been the same since. In direct response to the popularity of the Ford Ranchero, Chevrolet had decided it needed to stake a claim in the world of the automotive based utility vehicle.
Because every conversation, on any topic, turns political these days it seems most have isolated themselves from differing opinions to just avoid the trouble. That creates nothing more than an endless navel-gazing echo chamber. But a chance encounter with a Ranchero-ized metallic green Lincoln Continental was a…
Although it's generally accepted the Ranchero was the first of the car/trucks, Hudson produced a more utility based truck using the front sheet metal from their cars in the late 1940s. The result was a unique mixture of car and truck that predated the Ranchero by 11 years. This very original example of a rare Hudson…
Although Chevrolet didn't introduce the El Camino until 1959, what if they had decided to unleash their unique utility vehicle on the world one year earlier? Behold the El Nomado, a well executed custom vehicle currently listed on Ebay that answers that exact question. Even with a lot of modern custom touches, this…
Ford last produced the Ranchero in 1979, which coincidentally was the same year they introduced their large-car Panther platform. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe custom Crown Vic is a super freaky melange of the two, but does its price make it worth picking up?
Ford sort of invented the concept of the car-based pickup with the 1925 introduction of the Model T Runabout with Pickup Truck Body. Despite those auspicious beginnings, by the end of the ‘70s Ford had basically ceded the category to Chevy and their El Camino. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Fairmont-with-a-bed is a…
Long before Lincoln came up with the ill-fated idea to put their name on an F150, someone had already created a far superior Lincoln product with a bed. Behold the Lincoln Continenchero, a well executed example of the land yacht era car/truck Lincoln never made.
Although this 1964 Ford Ranchero may look like your average vintage Ranchero (if there is such a thing), don't be fooled by your first impression. Under the hood of this unassuming car/truck hybrid lurks an equally unassuming but loud and smelly 198ci Nissan Diesel.
Between 1969 and 1981, Ford Motor Argentina produced a local, four-door sedan version of the sixth generation Fairlane. Apparently, four can also mean two and a pickup bed. ¡Yeehaw!
In an act sure to inflame forum fan boys and delight all who appreciate custom made car/trucks, e46fanatics member bodycustom1 combined a totaled BMW 330 ZHP and the bed from a Chevrolet Colorado to create this, the E46-amino.
Some people drive inordinately large vehicles in order to compensate for shortcomings below the waist. Today, Nice Price or Crack Pipe has a customized Ford that will let everybody know that your name could easily be Hugh Johnson.
