He drove into the St. Louis, MO Classic Car Studio in a beat-up farm truck and drove out in a show-stopping, kick-ass pickup that goes as well as it shows.

The conversion from well-worn work truck to 730 horsepower stunner was all captured on video and featured on last week’s episode of Velocity Channel’s, Speed is the New Black.
