The Last Ride


James Edelmann, is 75. But he doesn’t rely on a cane or
wheelchair to get around Rice, Texas. No sir! James fries rice
with his factory 440 ’76 D100 pick-’em-up. He’s owned the truck
since 1990, and he shows his tailgate to the younger locals with
some good ol’ Texas hosspowa—some 540 ponies helped along
by 10.5-to-1 forged Sealed Power slugs, a Hughes cam, 870
Holley on a Torker intake, Hedman hedders and Walker muffs.
His SMR-beefed 727 is backed by a 9¼˝ 3.23 SureGrip. James
says this is his last—but his best—hot rod.
