Black Betty
Who:
Shannon Fleischman
Where: Parkland, Florida
What: '02 Dodge Mad 1500
Shannon Fleischman started personalizing his big Ram by adding a bit a flash. Chrome door handles, 22-inch spinners, chrome nerf bars, and a chrome gas cap accent the deep-black paint. The hood was adorned with Lund hoodscoops, and APC clear lights were added to the bed. Shannon plans to add a front flame paintjob and lower the truck to complete the build.

Team RPM
Who:
Sam Zadroga
Where: Dover, Delaware
What: '96 Chevy S-10
With the help of his brother, Sam Zadroga has ripped out the factory block under the hood and replaced it with a built 350ci LT-1. The powerplant has been equipped with high-performance rockers and lifters, titanium valve springs, a billet distributor, a JET chip, a 75mm throttle body, Doug Thorley headers, Flowmaster mufflers, a K&N filter, and a Vortec supercharger. The rear has been beefed up and stuffed with 3.73 gears to put the pound on the pavement. A Wings West body kit has been added to the exterior along with a Sir Michaels roll pan, euro taillights, and a 4-3/4-inch cowl-induction hood to cover the new motor. The inside of the truck has been stuffed with two 10- and 12-inch Sony Xplode subs powered by a set of 1,000-watt amps.

Hot Wheels Ranger
Who:
Steve Cale
Where: La Mesa, California
What: '01 Ford Ranger
Steve Cale isn't embarrassed to say that he still plays with Hot Wheels. After all, he drives one every day. He started out by replacing the stock speaker components and adding Eclipse speakers up front, Boston Acoustics in the rear, and a 10-inch Kicker Solo Baric sub'. To power the system, 1,800 watts worth of DEI Viper amps were installed. The outside of the truck has been treated to a custom flame job over the factory Island Blue. Steve then pulled off the 15-inch factory wheels and replaced them with 17-inch KMC wheels shod in Michelin rubber. To give the truck a nice growl, a set of Flowmaster mufflers was set inline with the exhaust.

Fierce Frontier
Who:
Troy Peterson
Where: San Jose, California
What: '01 Nissan Frontier
Troy Peterson started to add his own personal touches to his Nissan mini-truck. The entire truck has been dropped 3 inches, and a roll pan has been added to the rear. Up front, a billet grille has been stuffed into the bumper, while a K&N filter and a Flowmaster muffler have been added to the powerplant. The tinted windows hide the modifications inside the cab, which include a painted dash, Sony CD player, and a MTX amp. Currently, Troy is saving up his cash to 'bag the truck, add some new mirrors, and shave the tailgate.
