When the honey-do list shows up, there’s not a ton you can do about it—unless you’re KC Mathieu, with a 700hp 1968 Ford F100. The extra fury and speed makes the honey-do list a quicker task to finish.
Mathieu’s F-100, sometimes called the Frankenstein Ford, is definitely a handbuilt monster. A Ford Racing 5.0 Aluminator is blown by a Roush supercharger, directing that hellfire and brimstone through a Tremec T56 Magnum transmission and Eaton Truetrack differential. The result is 700 hp at the wheels and a wealth of tire smoke. Of course, the F-100 wears one of Mathieu’s own paint jobs.
Watching him thrash that F-100 makes us giggle like idiots—there are few sights in the world as beautiful as tire smoke rolling off the back of a truck cab.
However, when he’s not disturbing the peace, you can find Mathieu in the paint booth at KC’s Paint Shop
, and you might see him moonlighting as Gas Monkey Garage’s master painter in the Discovery Channel show, Fast and Loud.
