Ride of the Week: Showy Shop Truck from Ringbrothers
Built as a "shop truck" by the Ringbrothers, Jim and Mike Ring, this 1956 Ford F-100 shows up strong. Unveiled Wednesday at SEMA, this shop didn't skip any corners even though this one isn't a customer car, it's for the Ringbrothers themselves. See many of the myriad of modifications in our Ride of the Week video above and be sure to follow Driving Line's social channels to get new videos as soon as they drop.
