Flashing Back to a Mad Man

 
There’s a guy up there in “north country,” Beloit, Wisconsin to be exact, that certainly builds some wild street machines. His name is Mark “Mad Man” Madson, and here’s just one example of his offbeat fleet.
 
It’s a 1963 Ford Econoline pickup with a blown 427 Chevy big block sitting in the bed. The drive train has a unique v-drive that’s routed back to an upside down and backwards Dana 60 rear end, better to facilitate those instant wheelies that Mad Man likes to pull when he’s driving to local cruise events.
 
Check out this quick video of Mr. Mad Man Mark describing his ride.  It was shot at a great cruise-in we've attended at Gus’ Drive-in in East Troy, Wisconsin.

Mark continues to create one of a kind rides and the "Madness" that goes along with them is sure getting him noticed.  Since we met up with Mark he has appeared on an episode of Larry the Cable Guy's program "only in America and his adventure with the "Packermobile" has been him winning him fans across the country.  You can check it all out on Mark's website.

Our hats go off to this one of a kind American and his Mad, Mad, Mad marvels.
