Now THIS Is An Epic Road Trip

Watch this video, and then ponder the following question: would you be willing to drive this Hemi-powered Ford five window coupe from Dallas, Texas, to Tacoma, Washington, and back again? Before you answer, understand that this rod is the real deal, and has no air conditioning, cruise control, sound deadening or stereo. It would be just you, a big-ass thirsty motor, the occasional mechanical breakdown and lots of earplugs. Are you in or are you out?

As for me, I’m out. The days when something like this sounded fun are behind me, but I’ve got mad respect for Brian Bass, the man behind this epic journey. His photographs are stunning, and his evil sounding coupe is, too. It somehow looks better “as is” than it would decked out in seven coats of paint, with a mirror to show the spotless undercarriage, at some regional car show.
