Adam Carolla and the Professor Sandy Ganz sit back with Vaughn Gittin Jr. Vaughn is a different breed of racer, he is a formula drifter. 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!
Adam, Sandy and Jonathan Ward sit down to talk about his creations. The ICON line of vintage vehicles. ICON manufactures a FJ40 and a CJ3B with more on the way. The inspiration of all of this came out of Jonathan’s passion for the Toyota Land Cruiser and being the premier supplier of aftermarket parts. The TLC business evolved into ICON where he manufactures a variety of classic 4×4 from the ground up. Ever thing about these vehicles is about functionality and durability and yet they are meticulously detailed in every aspect. Enjoy the show!
