A listener favorite, Jonathan Ward, returns with another car in his “Derelict” series. This time it’s a 1948 Buick convertible. Like the other Derelicts, its weathered exterior belies its modern upgrades. From its LS9 crate engine back to the Strange 9″ rear, this car is a true sleeper.
A CarCast favorite, Jonathan Ward brings us the latest ICON creation. It’s a heavily-customized 1965 Dodge D200 crew cab. The truck sports a Banks-boosted, 5.9 L Cummins 6-cylinder turbo-diesel that delivers 975 ft-lbs of torque. It features the attention to detail and tastefully redesigned hardware that ICON is known for.
Jonathan Ward of Icon Motors returns and brings his long-awaited re-engineered Ford Bronco.
Featuring a fresh Coyote V8, the new Icon Bronco packs a punch, especially considering its weight. Design-wise, every inch of this Bronco has been thought about. From CNC milled door lock pulls to the customized interior to the radiator hoses, Ward leaves no stone unturned. Icon’s one-off re-engineering somehow finds the perfect balance between rugged and refined.
Tune in and hear Adam drool over Jonathan’s attention to detail and good taste. Has Ward possibly created a car that Adam can’t complain about? Maybe not, but he probably comes as close to that as anyone ever will.

He is currently driving the Monster Energy Drink/Falken Ford Mustang. Vaughn teaches the boys more about the sport and how it all works. Then we jump back to a the “Derelict Wagon”, a station wagon that has been done with some amazing care yet looks like an un-restored car. Jonathan Ward has been on the show with his ICON 4×4’s and has many other amazing projects in the works!
This weeks featured car is a really cool ride. Jonathan Ward from TLC (Toyota Land Cruiser) who brought us the his new ICON version of the Land Cruiser and Military Jeep brings us something completely different… A station wagon? Well this is about a cool a wagon as it gets, a 1952 Chrysler Town and Country custom wagon, which has the front end replaced with a DeSoto front end. Why? Because he could! Jonathan’s ride features a late model hemi engine but even that is dressed up to look old school. The workmanship is awesome when you get close and see how it was set up. This car was featured in Hot Rod Magazine May 2011, and it deserves it!
