ryan_manson@motortrend.com Modern Amenities Make for a More Enjoyable Motoring Experience ♠ To me, that title reads like a cover blurb lifted from one of those more “refined” automotive publications. You know the kind, where the editorial staff wear blazers, slacks, and loafers while espousing about how a $300,000 car is the ultimate motoring experience. Is it really necessary to wear leather-driving gloves while commuting to work? I guess that’s the difference between “motoring” and just driving a friggin’ car. Now, where was I? There’s no shortage of modern technology spilling over into the classic truck market. From Bluetooth-capable stereos that look like the original thing to electronically controlled transmissions to triple-adjustable shocks, if you like to keep your vintage ride updated with the latest and greatest, it’s not a hard thing to achieve. But…

tim_bernsau@motortrend.com 01. Great Bolt Gauge Serious engine builders never overlook fastener quality for their projects, and know that applying the right amount of clamp load to a rod bolt is crucial to preventing engine failure. Automotive Racing Products’ new Digitalrod digital rod bolt stretch gauge accurately measures bolt stretch to the ten-thousandth inch (0.0001). Accurate readings are achieved with opposing ball and pin-type probes, which center on the bolt. The digital display is easy to read and the uniquely designed billet aluminum handle makes operation simple. ARP’s Digitalrod digital rod bolt stretch gauge comes with a convenient carrying case and is an important addition to your toolbox. •For more information, contact Automotive Racing Products at (800) 826-3045 or www.arp-bolts.com. 02.

bringing up beave

We’re not sure where the saying “All good things come to those who wait” came from, but if you want proof that the old proverb is true, you’ll find it in Jon Watkins’ clean, classy ’54 Ford F-100. When the Effie showed up at Jeff Lilly Restorations it was in bad shape, and had been in that condition for approximately 25 years. Jon had purchased the pickup way back with the plan of turning it into a cool classic, like you see here. But as with many projects, things got in the way—things like time, budget considerations, and the frustration of not being able to connect with the right shop to make things happen. Things turned a corner a few years ago when Jon connected with Jeff Lilly at his San…

Regardless of whether you were in the pits at Indy, waiting for a push-start at Bonneville, or getting towed to the line at your local dragstrip, pickup trucks have always played a great part in motor racing. For a young Peter Bourikas, of Quincy, Massachusetts, spending plenty of his formative years at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire, gave him lots of insight into just how cool support vehicles were. Standing pie-eyed in the staging lanes, plenty of nitro-fed monsters piloted by his hot rod heroes inched toward the starting line in ’Rails, Funny Cars, and Gassers. It was sensory overload for the youngster, surely setting a standard for a path he would follow. As the years passed, it wasn’t long till Peter started spinning wrenches while in high school.…

small-block ford r&r

If you’ve been following along with Project Update, our ’56 F-100, you know we have been making improvements to a truck that was hot-rodded in the ’90s. When we got this truck back in 2013 we knew it had some issues with the motor. While it ran and drove OK, it just seemed like something was not quite right. The previous owner, who was not the one who built it, told us it had a rebuilt 5.0 from a ’92 Mustang coupled to a C4 trans and a 9-inch rear. Driving it 100 miles home gave us a chance to evaluate it. While it ran decent, it had a pretty big flat spot right off idle, the gearing seemed a bit high, while the trans slipped a little going into…
