Buy The ICON D200 Power Wagon

 

 

Icon Dodge Power Wagon

 

 

” If you don’t remember the ICON D200 Power Wagon, I strongly suggest you take a moment to familiarize yourself. The truck is another one of Jonathan Ward’s brilliant creations, and it combines a 2006 Dodge ¾-ton pickup truck chassis with a 1965 Dodge D200 Power Wagon Crew Cab body. There’s a 5.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel engine under the hood that’s been worked over by Gale Banks that dumps 975 lb-ft of torque and 560 hp on the ground. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Incredible truck, fusing vintage aesthetic with modern functionality. We took a vintage 1965 Dodge Crew Cab, ex-military, truck, then restored and modified it upon the chassis and mechanical underpinnings of a modern 3500HD Dodge MegaCab turbo diesel truck. Get the best of both worlds, 975 lbs. of torque, refined performance and chassis dynamics with the timeless lines of the early Power Wagon. It is tough to describe everything that went into this truck. There are so many subtle design details. All custom ICON designed CNC’ed stainless steel trim, architectural silver glass, Hutchinson Bead Lock wheels, 37″ BFG tires, a host of Gale Banks engine performance modifications, enhanced suspension and brakes (with exhaust brake), class IV tow hitch, all LED lighting, Bison leather and Rolls Royce Wilton wool interior, extensive Dynamat insulation, Lear jet visors, high end Focal iPod dependent audio system, and much much more. We are currently building two more varations on this truck. This is the one that started the style. Featured in multiple magazines, numerous awards and reviews on line, simply Google “ICON D200”. “

Gottfried: Jonathan Winters was mad brilliant

image

” Jonathan Winters was not always in his right mind. I don’t mean that only in the showbiz sense, but in the mental health sense. Jonathan, who died Thursday, was a nut as a comic, but also manic depressive and was institutionalized at least once in his life. He was also brilliantly talented. And the combination of his mental troubles and amazing talent made him the legendary performer that he was. He recognized this himself, telling an NPR reporter in 2011, “I need that pain — whatever it is — to call upon it from time to time, no matter how bad it was.” ”

Fashion Designer Lilly Pulitzer Dies at 81

 

 

 

 

” In the late 1950s, the Palm Beach socialite had time to spare and a wealthy husband who owned citrus groves, so she opened an orange juice stand just off the island’s main shopping street. Pulitzer needed to hide all the juice stains on her clothes, though. Instead of just putting on an apron, she asked her seamstress to make some sleeveless dresses in colorful fruit prints, and a fashion staple was born.

Pulitzer died at her home Sunday, according to Quattlebaum Funeral and Cremation Services. She was 81.

Pulitzer’s tropical print dresses became a sensation in the 1960s when then-first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who attended boarding school with Pulitzer, wore one of the sleeveless shifts in a Life magazine photo spread.

Pulitzer was born Lilly McKim on Nov. 10, 1931, to a wealthy family in Roslyn, N.Y.

In 1952, she married Pete Pulitzer, the grandson of newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer, whose bequest to Columbia University established the Pulitzer Prize.

Pulitzer had three children in quick succession. After the third was born, she had a nervous breakdown and ended up in a mental hospital that catered to upscale clientele in New York. A doctor there told her that she needed to find a job.”
