(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY WE'RE TURNING THE TRUCKS SHOP OVER TO WYOTECH. WE'VE GOT A GROUP OF GRADUATES KICKING OFF A PROJECT TO BUILD WYOTECH THE ULTIMATE SHOP TRUCK, INSTALLING AN INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION AND UPGRADING THE 390 VEIGHT IN THEIR CLASSIC 1964 F-100. THAT'S ALL TODAY HERE ON TRUCKS.

(KEVIN)>> HEY WELCOME TO TRUCKS. WELL TODAY WE'VE GOT COMPANY. WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD FRIENDS FROM WYOTECH THAT ARE HERE

WITH THEIR NEW SHOP TRUCK, A '64 F-100. AND ONE OF THE COOL THINGS THAT WE'RE GONNA BE DOING TODAY IS TAKING OUT THE OLD BUGGY AXLE FRONT END AND INSTALL A NEW MODERN SUSPENSION.

(RYAN)>> WE'RE ALSO GONNA BE SHOWING YOU GUYS THEM WORKING ON THE OLD 390 THAT CAME OUT OF THAT OLD PICK UP. NOW IT DID RUN PRETTY GOOD, BUT I KNOW THESE GUYS CAN MAKE IT RUN EVEN BETTER WITH A COUPLE OR FEW AFTERMARKET PARTS ONCE THEY GET ALL THE GREASE AND GRIME CLEANED OFF THIS THING. AND THE BEST PART ABOUT IT, KEVIN AND I GET TO SUPERVISE.

(KEVIN)>> THESE GRADUATES COME FROM ALL DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, FROM DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, AND HAVE DIFFERENT SPECIALTIES AT WYOTECH. BUT THEY ALL HAVE ONE COMMON GOAL, AND THAT'S TO BECOME PROFESSIONAL AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIANS OUT IN THE WORKFORCE. SO LETS TAKE A LITTLE TIME TO MEET THE CREW THAT'S KICKING THIS PROJECT OFF.

(GREG)>> GREG BLYSTONE, WYOTECH INSTRUCTOR, BLAIRSVILLE, PA.

(RYAN)>> GREG IS FROM AND TEACHES AT THE BLAIRSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA, CAMPUS. LIKE MANY OF THE GRADS, THIS WYOTECH INSTRUCTOR GREW UP IN A CAR FAMILY BUILDING HOT RODS AND SPENT HIS YOUTH AT THE LOCAL DIRT TRACKS AND WORKING ON HIS DAD'S '38 CHEVY.

(ANGELO)>> ANGELO ESTRADA, ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS, WYOTECH

FREEMONT, CALIFORNIA.

(KEVIN)>> ANGELO IS FOLLOWING IN THE FOOT STEPS OF HIS GRANDFATHER, WHO RAN A HOME BASED GARAGE AND WAS

CONSTANTLY WORKING ON CARS FOR COWORKERS, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS. ANGELO WILL BE PART OF THE TWO MAN TEAM UPGRADING THE F-100'S 390 BIG BLOCK.

(BRANDON)>> BRANDON MOHAMMED, STREET ROD FABRICATION, BLAIRSVILLE CAMPUS, BLAIRSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA.

(KEVIN)>> BRANDON GOT HIS START BY DOING CUSTOM AUDIO INSTALLATIONS IN HIS YOUTH, BUT HE CHOSE A NONAUTOMOTIVE

CAREER TO MAKE HIS LIVING. WHEN HE DECIDED HE NEEDED A CHANGE, HE WENT TO WYOTECH AND STUDIED MANY DIFFERENT FIELDS. HE'LL BE A PART OF THE TEAM INSTALLING THE NEW FRONT END ON THE TRUCK.

(KRAIG)>> KRAIG PARRISH, CHASSIS FAB, LARAMIE, WYOMING.

(RYAN)>> GROWING UP ON A FARM IN WYOMING, KRAIG HAS ALWAYS BEEN INTO JEEPS AND FOUR WHEELERS, AND THE ABILITY TO FIX VEHICLES HAS BEEN HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION. HE'LL BE THE OTHER HALF OF THE ENGINE ASSEMBLY TEAM FRESHENING UP THE 390.

(GREGORY)>> GREGORY CASH, MOTORSPORTS CHASSIS FABRICATION, BLAIRSVILLE CAMPUS,

BLAIRSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA.

(KEVIN)>> CASH AS HE'S KNOWN TO HIS FRIENDS, IS A TEXAN WHO STUDIED AUTOMOTIVE TECH ALL THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL WITH THE

INTENT OF ATTENDING WYOTECH. AND AFTER SERVING OUR NATION IN THE MILITARY, CASH ENROLLED IN WYOTECH AND WILL BE THE OTHER HALF OF OUR SUSPENSION TEAM. I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO ANOTHER MEMBER OF THE WYOTECH TEAM. THIS IS THEIR NEW SHOP TRUCK. IT'S A CLASSIC DESIGN, 1964 FORD F-100 WITH A TON OF CHARACTER, AND THE ADDED BONUS THAT IT'S A FORD. NOW THEY BOUGHT IT THE SAME WAY YOU AND I DO, A LOT OF DIFFERENT PROJECT VEHICLES, ON AN INTERNET AUCTION. NOW THE SELLER SAID IT RAN, AND IT DID, AND THAT EVERYTHING PRETTY MUCH WORKED, BRAKES, STEERING, AND IT DID

BUT TRUST ME, THIS WAS A FAR CRY FROM ANYTHING CLOSE TO A SPORTS CAR. IF YOU LOOK UP CHASSIS FLEX AND BODY ROLL YOU SEE A PICTURE OF THIS F-100. IT WAS AMAZING THAT THE THING DIDN'T FLIP OVER

IN A TIGHT CIRCLE. NOW IN ALL FAIRNESS, THESE TRUCKS WERE NEVER MADE TO HANDLE LIKE A SPORTS CAR. THE WEAR AND TEAR HAS CERTAINLY TAKEN ITS TOLL ON THIS ONE.

THAT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF BODY ROLL, WOW!

(RYAN)>> NOW THE STOCK ENGINE DID A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN THE STOCK SUSPENSION. IN FACT THIS IRON BLOCK, IRON HEAD, AND IRON INTAKE MANIFOLD

EQUIPPED 390, IT'S STILL GOT PLENTY OF LIFE LEFT IN IT.

NOW THE FIRST STEP IN THE INSTALLATION OF OUR NEW FRONT END IS TO GET RID OF THE OLD ROUGH RIDING AND POOR HANDLING LEAF SPRINGS AND SOLID AXLE.

(BRANDON)>> THAT'LL DO IT.

(KEVIN)>> NOW THAT WE'VE GOT THIS ANTIQUE STUFF OUT OF THE WAY, IT'S HEADING FOR THE SCRAP PILE BECAUSE IT'S WORTH ABOUT WHAT IT WEIGHS. IT'S WORN OUT, IT'S TIME FOR AN UPGRADE. SO WHAT WE'RE GONNA INSTALL IS THIS SUPER RIDE TWO SYSTEM FROM HEIDTS AUTOMOTIVE. IT'S A COMPLETE FRONT SUSPENSION AND IT STARTS WITH THIS CROSS MEMBER. THESE ARE FIXTURE BUILT AND THEY'RE HAND WELDED WITH OUTSTANDING WELD QUALITY. THEY SHIP RAW, SO YOU CAN PAINT IT YOUR CHOICE OF COLORS, BUT IT ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO SEE THE EXCELLENT QUALITY WELDS. NOW THIS SYSTEM COMES WITH SOMETHING THIS TRUCK NEVER DID, AND THAT'S AN ANTIROLL BAR. AND SINCE IT FITS INTO A CCHANNEL FRAME, THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE IT'S GOOD AND STRONG, THEY INCLUDE BOXING PLATES. THE UPPER CONTROL ARMS ARE ADJUSTABLE SO YOU CAN DIAL IN THE CASTOR OR THE ANTIDIVE THAT YOU WANT, AND YOU'VE GOT A CHOICE OF STANDARD OR DROPPED SPINDLES. NOW SPEAKING OF ADJUSTABILITY, SINGLE ADJUSTABLE COIL OVERS TO HELP TUNE THE RIDE TO YOUR DRIVING STYLE. NOW A MANUAL RACK COMES STANDARD WITH THIS SYSTEM, BUT WE OPTED FOR POWER ASSIST BECAUSE IT'S A BIG, HEAVY

PICK UP TRUCK AND THERE'S AN IRON BLOCK 390 RIGHT ABOVE THE AXLE CENTERLINE.

SO POWER STEERING'S GONNA HELP WITH STEERING EFFORT BIG TIME. NOW DISC BRAKES ARE A GREAT UPGRADE FOR ANY CLASSIC VEHICLE, AND THESE 11 INCH ROTORS ALSO COME STOCK. WHAT ALSO COMES STANDARD ARE THESE FOUR PISTON WILWOOD CALIPERS THAT NOT ONLY LOOK GREAT BUT THEY'RE GONNA PUT THIS SUCKER ON ITS NOSE IF YOU PUT YOUR

FOOT IN THEM TOO HARD. GOTTA HAVE BRAKES!

(RYAN)>> NOW THE MID-'70'S 390 THAT WAS SWAPPED INTO OUR PICK UP TRUCK IS ONLY RATED AT ABOUT 200 HORSEPOWER, AND I KNOW THESE GUYS CAN DO BETTER. SO TO HELP THEM OUT WE PICKED UP A CRANE CAM AND LIFTER SET ALONG WITH SOME NEW VALVE SPRINGS, A MISTER GASKET COMPLETE ENGINE OVERHAUL GASKET KIT, AN ARP BOLT KIT, ALONG WITH A SUMMIT 600 CFM CARBURETOR. THAT SUCKER'S NEW. AND SINCE WE'RE ALSO CHANGING THE LOCATION OF THE CROSS MEMBER, WELL WE WENT TO SUMMIT AND PICKED UP A NEW OIL PAN AS WELL. NOW TO REPLACE THE HEAVY CAST IRON INTAKE MANIFOLD THAT CAME ON THAT TRUCK WE WENT TO EDELBROCK AND PICKED UP AN ALUMINUM PERFORMER INTAKE THAT'S NOT ONLY GONNA SAVE

ABOUT 35 POUNDS, IT'S GONNA HELP US MAKE

SOME MORE POWER TOO.

(RYAN)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK TO TRUCKS.

WELL ANGELO AND KRAIG FROM WYOTECH HAVE OUR 390 FE PRETTY WELL STRIPPED DOWN TO A SHORT BLOCK, CLEANED UP, AND THEY'VE HIT IT WITH SOME DUPLICOLOR FORD BLUE. LOOKING PRETTY GOOD AND WE'RE JUST ABOUT READY TO START

THROWING SOME PARTS AT THIS THING.

(KEVIN)>> BRANDON AND CASH HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD TOO. THEY'VE GOT THE FRONT SUSPENSION COMPLETELY STRIPPED OFF OF THE FRAME, FRAME RAILS ALL CLEANED UP, READY FOR SOME WELDING. NOW THEY'RE READY TO THROW IN THAT NEW HEIDT SUSPENSION.

(BRANDON)>> THE FIRST STEP IN ADDING THE CROSS MEMBER IS WELDING IN THESE BOXING PLATES.

(KEVIN)>> SINCE THE NEW SUSPENSION USES A DIFFERENT AREA OF SUPPORT THAN THE ORIGINAL ONE, THE BOXING PLATES ARE NECESSARY TO INCREASE THE STRENGTH. BRANDON AND CASH KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO MEASURE TWICE BEFORE YOU CUT ONCE BECAUSE WITH THE PLACEMENT OF A WELD IN CROSS MEMBER, THE INITIAL LOCATION IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL. MIKE HAWLEY FROM HEIDTS JOINED US FOR THIS INSTALLATION AND A LITTLE BIT OF INSIGHT ON THEIR PRODUCT LINE.

(MIKE)>> WELL NOW THAT WE'VE GOT THE CROSS MEMBER IN PLACE, WE NEED TO MAKE SURE IT'S PERFECTLY LEVEL TO THE GROUND. ONCE WE'VE DONE THAT WE CAN TACK IT IN AND CHECK IT AGAIN. THERE'S SEVERAL THINGS YOU NEED TO DO. OBVIOUSLY DRY FITTING IS HUGE. YOU WANT TO GO THROUGH A WHOLE DRY FIT IF YOU CAN ON THE WHOLE SYSTEM.

MAKE SURE EVERYTHING FITS, MAKE SURE EVERYTHING'S LEVEL, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CAR AT THE RIGHT RAKE OR RIDE HEIGHT BEFORE YOU DO ANY WELDING BECAUSE THAT CROSS MEMBER NEEDS TO GO IN LEVEL TO THE GROUND.

(CASH)>> NOW THAT WE'VE MADE SURE EVERYTHING IS STRAIGHT AND LEVEL WE'RE GONNA TACK IT IN SO WE CAN DO A LITTLE

PREASSEMBLY, MAKE SURE EVERYTHING GOES OKAY.

(KEVIN)>> ONCE THESE SUSPENSION SYSTEMS ARE LOCATED CORRECTLY, THE REST, WELL IT'S JUST BOLTING PARTS TOGETHER, WHICH MAKES IT A NICE INSTALLATION. WE'RE GONNA DO A DRY FIT ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE SO WE CAN CYCLE THE SUSPENSION, MAKE SURE THERE'S NO INTERFERENCE, AS WELL AS GETTING A VISUAL REFERENCE WITH THE WHEEL AND TIRE IN PLACE AND THE SHEET METAL SET ON SO WE KNOW WHAT THE NEW RIDE HEIGHT AND THE NEW SUSPENSION IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE. (GREG B.)>> NOW THAT WE HAVE THE FRONT SHEET METAL IN PLACE, EVERYTHING CHECKS OUT AND WE'RE READY FOR WELDS.

(KEVIN)>> WITH EVERYBODY SATISFIED WITH THE PLACEMENT OF THE NEW FRONT SUSPENSION CROSS MEMBER, CASH CAN START BURNING IT IN USING SOME OF THE WELDING SKILLS THAT HE HONED AT THE WYOTECH CAMPUS. WHILE HE'S TAKING CARE OF THAT, WE'RE GONNA CHECK IN WITH ANGELO AND KRAIG OVER AT THE OTHER HALF OF THE WYOTECH TEAM AS THEY'RE IMPROVING THE LOOKS AND PERFORMANCE OF THAT OLD 390.

(ANGELO)>> THE FIRST STEP IN UPGRADING OUR 390 IS INSTALLING OUR CAM.

(RYAN)>> NOW THE CRANE CAM THAT'S GETTING INSTALLED IS JUST A MILD UPGRADE OVER STOCK, BUT IT OUGHT TO PROVIDE A GOOD BUMP IN PERFORMANCE. NOW ANGELO'S SLATHERING UP THE CAM SHAFT WITH THE PROVIDED ASSEMBLY LUBE. THEN TIGHTENING DOWN THE RETAINER PLATE TO KEEP IT IN PLACE. HE FOLLOWED THAT WITH THE INSTALLATION OF THE SUPPLIED LIFTERS.

NOW THE ORIGINAL TIMING CHAIN HAD ENOUGH SLACK TO JUST ABOUT TIE A KNOT IN IT. SO THE GUYS THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO THROW IN A REPLACEMENT.

AND WITH THE ENGINE TORN DOWN THIS FAR, IT ONLY MAKES SENSE TO REPLACE THE OIL PUMP.

SO THAT'S WHAT ANGELO DID, FOLLOWED BY THE INSTALLATION OF A NEW OIL PUMP PICK UP THAT CAME WITH OUR REAR SUMP PAN. THIS REAR SUMP DESIGN WILL PROVIDE THE NECESSARY CLEARANCE FOR OUR NEW FRONT SUSPENSION'S CROSS MEMBER.

(KRAIG)>> THE NEXT STEP IN UPGRADING OUR ENGINE, PUTTING NEW SPRINGS IN OUR HEADS.

(RYAN)>> NOW WHEN INSTALLING A PERFORMANCE CAM SHAFT IN ANY OF THESE OLD BIG BLOCKS, WELL IT'S JUST ABOUT AN REQUIREMENT THAT YOU INSTALL NEW PERFORMANCE VALVE SPRINGS TO ACCOMMODATE THE INCREASED LIFT.

THEY CAME FROM CRANE CAMS ALONG WITH THE REPLACEMENT KEEPERS AND VALVE RETAINERS. AND AFTER SWAPPING OUT ALL 16 SPRINGS, KRAIG DROPPED THE

FRESHLY PAINTED CYLINDER HEAD IN PLACE AND TORQUED IT TO SPEC. HE FOLLOWED THAT WITH A BEAD OF RTV TO SEAL THE FRONT AND REAR OF THE GIGANTIC INTAKE MANIFOLD. TO SEAL THE MANIFOLD TO THE CYLINDER HEAD WE'RE USING THE SUPPLIED GASKETS. THIS EDELBROCK PERFORMER INTAKE OUGHT TO BE THE PERFECT MATCH FOR OUR MILD CAM UPGRADE. THEN THE GUYS THREW ON THE FRESHLY PAINTED EXHAUST MANIFOLDS AND STARTED THE INSTALLATION OF SOME OF THE FRONT DRIVE ACCESSORIES.

(KEVIN)>> HEY, WELCOME BACK TO TRUCKS, WHERE THE WYOTECH TEAMS ARE WELL ON THEIR WAY TO CREATING A GREAT LITTLE PARTS CHASER AND AN AWESOME CAMPUS SHOP TRUCK.

BRANDON AND CASH ARE ON THE HOME STRETCH WITH THE HEIDTS SYSTEM. THE STEERING RACK IS ONE OF THE ONLY COMPONENTS LEFT, AND IT BOLTS RIGHT IN, FOLLOWED BY THE ANTIROLL BAR OR SWAY BAR, WHICH IS REALLY COOL WITH THIS TRUCK BECAUSE IT WAS NEVER EQUIPPED WITH THIS FROM THE FACTORY AND WILL REALLY ENHANCE THE WAY THIS TRUCK FEELS AND HANDLES ON THE ROAD. THIS IS A COMPLETE SYSTEM INCLUDING TIE ROD ENDS, AND WHAT FINISHES IT OFF ARE THE 11 INCH ROTORS AND WILWOOD FOUR PISTON CALIPERS, GIVING THIS THING ALL THE STOPPING POWER THIS TRUCK WILL EVER NEED.

(RYAN)>> NOW TO FINISH THE ENGINE UP, GET IT READY FOR STARTING, THE GUYS ADDED A ROYAL PURPLE FILTER AND SOME

BREAK IN OIL, WHICH HAS A FEW EXTRA ADDITIVES TO HELP REDUCE FRICTION ON START UP. NOW THEY ALSO BUILT PRESSURE IN THE SYSTEM BY PRIMING IT AND MAKING SURE THE OIL IS CIRCULATING. TO LIGHT THE ENGINE OFF THE GUYS DROPPED IN A PETRONIX PLUG AND PLAY BILLET DISTRIBUTOR, TOPPED OFF THE INTAKE WITH A SUMMIT BRAND FOUR BARREL CARBURETOR, AND SPUN IN SOME ETHREE DIAMOND FIRE PLUGS. THEN FINISHED THINGS OFF WITH SOME COOL EDELBROCK VALVE COVERS.

(KEVIN)>> BRANDON AND CASH HAVE DONE AN OUTSTANDING JOB INSTALLING THE HEIDTS FRONT SUSPENSION SYSTEM. AND WHAT THEY'RE DOING RIGHT NOW IS SPRAYING ON SOME WD 40 LONG TERM CORROSION PROTECTION BECAUSE THE BARE STEEL, WE DON'T WANT IT TO RUST. AND THIS TRUCK IS GOING TO GO TO A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT WYOTECH CAMPUSES FOR MORE CUSTOM STUFF CAUSE THESE GUYS HAVE BIG PLANS AT MAKING THIS INTO A REALLY COOL STREET ROD SHOP TRUCK. WELL DONE!

(BRANDON)>> I LOVE THE WAY IT TURNED OUT. IT WAS JUST, SOME PARTS WERE CHALLENGING TO DO, BUT IT'S MORE OR LESS A DROP IN KIT. IF YOU HAVE ANY SORT OF KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO USE A MEASURING TAPE AND MINOR WELDING SKILL, THEN YOU COULD PUT IT IN.

(CASH)>> I LIKE THE WAY THE SUSPENSION CAME OUT. IF WE CAN GET IT PAINTED UP AT ONE OF THE CAMPUSES, IT OUGHT TO BE A PRETTY NASTY LOOKING TRUCK WHENEVER IT'S DONE.

(RYAN)>> NOW ANGELO AND KRAIG HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB FRESHENING UP THIS FORMERLY REALLY GREASY 390. IT TURNED OUT LOOKING GREAT. WE'VE GOT JOHN FROM HORSEPOWER HERE TO SEE IF

THIS THING LIGHTS OFF.

(JOHN)>> YOU GUYS READY?

(RYAN)>> YES SIR!

(JOHN)>> ALRIGHT.

(RYAN)>> KRAIG YOU RUNNING OUR THROTTLE?

(JOHN)>> GOT POWER TO IT, IGNITION, FUEL PRESSURE, Y'ALL READY? [ engine firing and revving ]

(JOHN)>> NICE, THAT WORKED GOOD.

(RYAN)>> GOOD JOB GENTLEMENT!

(JOHN)>> GOOD JOB GUYS.

(KRAIG)>> IT WAS INCREDIBLE.

AND JUST HEARING IT YOU KNOW, FEELING IT IN YOUR CHEST, AND IT'S LIKE MAN, DID I JUST DO THAT IN THREE DAYS.

(ANGELO)>> TO JUST TURN OVER LIKE THAT, LIKE VROOM! THAT'S THE RESULT OF OUR HARD WORK.

(KEVIN)>> HEY WELCOME BACK TO TRUCKS. SO WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU COMBINE A WORN OUT '64 FORD

PICK UP WITH A TRANSPLANTED BIG BLOCK, A PALLET FULL OF AFTERMARKET PARTS, ONE INSTRUCTOR, AND FOUR STUDENTS FROM WYOTECH CAMPUSES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY? YOU GET THIS, THE WORLD'S COOLEST FOUNDATION FOR AN AWESOME SHOP TRUCK. BRANDON AND CASH KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK BY INSTALLING THE HEIDTS SUPER RIDE TWO FRONT SUSPENSION SYSTEM, WHICH

IS GOING TO CHANGE AND FOREVER IMPROVE THE HANDLING AND DRIVING CHARACTERISTICS OF THIS OLD TRUCK. AND ANGELO AND KRAIG STRIPPED THE OLD FE DOWN TO THE SHORT BLOCK, FRESHENED EVERYTHING UP, AND UPGRADED THE CAM TO GIVE EVEN MORE POWER TO AN ALREADY POTENT AND STRONG RUNNING BIG BLOCK. SO FROM HERE THIS TRUCK IS GONNA GO TO WYOTECH CAMPUSES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND DIFFERENT TEAMS OF STUDENTS ARE GOING TO BUILD ON THE FOUNDATION AND ADD PROJECTS, AND EVENTUALLY CREATE WHAT THIS TRUCK IS GONNA BECOME, WHICH IS A REALLY COOL PARTS CHASER AND A GREAT SHOP TRUCK THAT NOT ONLY SHOWCASES WHAT THE WYOTECH CAMPUSES ARE CAPABLE OF TEACHING, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY WHAT THE WYOTECH STUDENTS HAVE LEARNED THERE. OH AND BY THE WAY, WHEN ALL OF THAT IS SAID AND DONE, THE TRUCK COMES BACK HERE FOR A COUPLE OF FINISHING TOUCHES AND THEN WE FINALLY GET SOME SEAT TIME TO FLOG THIS THING AND FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF A MONSTER THEY'VE CREATED. WHO KNOWS, WE MAY EVEN LET THEM DRIVE. HOOD PROTECTORS ARE SOMETIMES KNOWN AS BUG SHIELDS DON'T HAVE TO BE UGLY.
