As the kick-off date for San Bernardino, CA was ramping up and the fans were lining up, Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival main stage closing artist Rob Zombie was doing a bit of heavy metal double tasking: filming behind-the-scenes for History's “Counting Cars” latest episode, in which the Count’s Kustoms crew delivers a custom macabre-style overhaul on Rob’s 1967 Ford F-100.

The premiere episode, partially filmed on location at the Mayhem Festival kick-off date, will air on Tuesday, July 16th at 9pm Eastern/8pm Central Time. The following press release was also issued:

"Although the crew at Las Vegas based Count’s Kustoms are not new to the game, the finished product was no small feat. History's 'Counting Cars' star Danny 'The Count' Koker and his crew had just seven days to work on the truck and deliver it to Rob at the San Bernardino, CA kick-off— a turnaround faster than they’ve ever experienced on any project. Starting on July 19th in Camden, NJ, Rob Zombie’s 1967 Ford F-100 will be touring with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

"Every 'Counting Cars' episode features stories behind vintage vehicles, striking before-and-after transformations, and Danny 'The Count' Koker’s relentless compulsion to find and flip the greatest rides of all time, at any cost."

Haven't watched this show. I may watch it to see what they do to the truck.
One thing that isn't uncommon is to take the front suspension from a later model Crown Vic and replace the crappy twin I beam. There's even a hole in the existing frame rails that serves as a perfect alignment location. You can also use the engine/transmission from the Crown Vic. You can even reuse the engine mounts at the stock location, but it looks kinda funny with about 5 inches of space between the back of the block and the firewall.

(If you're not a gearhead, you may not understand most of that.)
