Potent Pickup: The baddest Ford Ranchero you've ever seen

We don't often feature custom cars owned by individuals, but this 1975 Ford Ranchero is too good to pass up. One look at the massive rear tires or the dual nitrous bottles in the trunk will tell you that this isn't your everyday sedan-based pickup.
You might initially think that the wood paneling along the side of the Ranchero, a feature of the Squire model, is the coolest part of the package, but wait until you get a look underneath the hood. Owner Mike Miller has swapped out the original Cleveland V8 with a 604ci V8 specially built by JBA Engines in San Diego, California that puts out 870 horsepower and 822 lb-ft torque on 91 octane. And that's without the 250 shot of nitrous. Check out the chromed V8 and the rest of the Ranchero's tasty details in our high-res gallery below.
