a primered 55 with a dual holly tunnel-ram was an object of desire for me as a kid after seeing this, I bet I drew this car 1000 times on napkins at restaurants, or on my desk at school:

I didn't realize they re-used it in American Graffiti (I like the clapped out primered version from 2 lane blacktop more)

but as a cruiserhead, you should appreciate this one a bit more since it had an important part built by someone who would become big in the cruiser world

I know it's a show that features cars, but it's TV and a Hilux. From TopGear UK they took a North Pole crossing Hilux to an erupting Icelandic volcano. It was awesome.

The North Pole episode vs. the sled dogs was pretty funny. The guys in the Hilux were groveling pretty hard at times....
