When it comes to picking out a car or truck to purchase, one of the major factors that you might consider is exactly how safe it is and how resistant to accident damage that vehicle will be. This time, we check out a body man’s take on Ford and their aluminum construction.
If you’ve missed the comparisons, basically there has been a big throwdown between Ford and Chevy fans and this issue has been split up and looked at in every which way but you could imagine with people arguing for or against the use of aluminum in the construction truck bodies.
I’m not sure if we’ll ever truly get to the bottom of it, but taking a look at a couple of rollover vehicles with one sporting the aluminum body and another sporting a steel body, you might begin to lean in one direction or the other when it comes to if you would put your family inside of a truck with an aluminum body or not.
Check out the video down below that shows off a Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado that have rolled over and now allow us to go through the damage to see exactly what we’re dealing with in regards to each of the vehicles. What is your take on this pair of trucks?
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a 50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
TAKE a look at the world’s longest monster truck that stretches for 32 feet and is worth 1 million dollars. The Sin City Hustler stands 12 feet tall and roams the desert of White Hills, Arizona, just 45 minutes outside Las Vegas.
