Tom Pagano's '53 F-100 had us hook, line, and sinker the minute we crossed eyes. Come to find out the Mountain Pearl, originally built in 1962, was the first full-color vehicle featured in Hot Rod. (How about that, a truck that was the trailblazer!) What drew us to it is that pinched nose with floating '58 Lincoln headlights, what's left of a '55 Chevy truck grille, and bits and pieces of a '58 Oldsmobile bumper.
