Ladies and gentlemen, let us introduce you to Jonathan Rascoe, the proud owner of this clean Ford truck. When we first met him, he was attending the Spring Break Jam in South Padre, Texas. He was trying to beat the heat as he came out to show this pretty sweet F-150. We like to joke around a lot, and we instantly poked some fun at his name because it reminded us of Roscoe's House of Chicken 'n' Waffles (ghetto fabulous grub in SoCal). He just laughed at us because he was already used to being the butt of many jokes because of his name.
That very weekend, we convinced him to roll his clean Blue Oval to a parking lot on the opposing side of the show. We knew he was cool at that point because we had our fun with him, and he still let us shoot his ride. After our awkward meeting and the photo shoot, Rascoe still hung out with us and had a great time. As we attended other shows held in the Texas area, we ended up seeing him everywhere we went.
As time rolled on, we realized there was more to him than just being a cool guy with a funny name. We found out that ever since Rascoe was in high school, it's been a dream of his to own a custom truck. Back in the day, he and his friends rolled a crew of lowered trucks. Rascoe was as cool as the next guy with his '98 Ford F-150 that was lowered over 17s. As he grew older, the truck did too, and in 2003, the Ford decided to blow its internal combustion workings.
Rascoe was then on the prowl for a new truck to roll down the hot streets of Texas. He stopped by the local Ford dealership and instantly found what he wanted. It was this F-150 SuperCrew Lariat, and the manager of the dealership was toting this bad boy around town. Rascoe hit him up about purchasing the truck from the dealer's lot, and the staff fumbled around on the bargaining table. He then got frustrated enough to just walk away from the sale associates and get some grub in his stomach. As he got his chow down, the sales people at the dealership called him up and told him they could work out a flat price of 28,000 dollars for the truck.
Then, he made his way back to the dealership and drove the truck home that night. The very next day, he and his pals Jeffro and Roland installed a 2/4 DJM drop kit with 20-inch wheels. It was cool enough for him, and it remained his daily driver. Gradually, a sea of new trucks that came with factory built 20-inch wheels overshadowed his truck.
The decision was made to take the stand and customize the truck so that it would be nicer than all the other trucks on the street. Rascoe saved up some major cash and dropped off the F-150 at Tricked Out Truks for a 'bag job and 22s. Then, it was off to Kustom Werx for paint and a Pat Maxwell pinstriping job. A stop for some upholstery work and, bam, you have this super-clean Ford. After our rendezvous with Rascoe, we discovered that not only is his truck cool, but he is one cool guy to hang out with, as well. We guess after having a name like his you would have to be down for whatever.
