Vintage Air has been synonymous with aftermarket air conditioning since the mid-1970s. With the company’s plug-and-play SureFit kits, this job is as easy for a guy doing it in the garage as it is for a professional. Vintage Air makes this setup dummy-proof. We have Snickers, our 1978 Ford F-150 4×4, that we took on Hot Rod Power Tour. That was a 2,000-plus-mile journey in the summer in the South. Let’s just say it was HOT!! One of the first things we wanted to do was add air conditioning to make the truck more comfortable for cruising. Read on to see how we stayed cool.
Older generations would tell you to rub your truck down with oils, like boiled linseed, to prevent further oxidation. But with the oils come issues; they lack the necessary components to keep your patina truly safe from everyday elements like UV radiation. They fall even shorter when it comes to protecting it from harsher conditions like acid rain. That’s where Poppy’s Patina steps in. The company has developed a line of urethane-based matte and gloss clearcoats that have been designed specifically for patina paintjobs. Go behind the scenes with Poppy’s Patina to see how it’s done!
Ford has unleashed the new F-150 Raptor R—the fastest, most powerful, most extreme high-performance off-road desert Raptor yet. The heart of Raptor R is a new 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that delivers 700 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. Raptor R delivers a 10-speed SelectShift transmission with improved calibration, and features a new front axle with a more robust, higher-strength carrier casting and an aluminum-ribbed structural cover to manage the powertrain’s added torque.
