It’s not a rat rod, nor a drift truck, nor is it a full-time road racer. It’s Old Smokey, the 1949 Ford F1 pickup that was conceived and built by Scott Birdsall the owner of Chuckles Garage in Santa Rosa, California. And while some may say that putting a 5.9L Cummins diesel with compound turbochargers in a truck is insane, to Birdsall it seem only fitting– especially when you want to go 200 mph in the measured mile.

They’re big, brash, in your face and oh-so politically incorrect. The House Of Muscle takes a look inside the world’s obsession with the muscle car. Every month, host Mike Musto travels the globe showcasing how these automobiles - and their fanatical owners - help shape the face of today’s automotive culture. Every car has a past, and every owner a story. From home-built rat-rods to priceless rolling works of art, Musto not only profiles the cars and their place in history, but then takes these amazing machines out for a flat-out, no-holds-barred test drive.
