There’s little wrong with the Mach 1 of the late ’60s—unless you’re trying to save money on gas—but the mad auto scientists at Eckert’s Rod & Custom wanted to play around a bit with one to see what they could pull off. Namely, they wanted to take a ’69 Mustang Mach 1 and drop in pieces from a 2006 GT 40 supercar to bring an old muscle car into the modern era. Holy hell, did they succeed. Meet the Mustang Mach 40. Inside, you’ll find a 5.4-liter supercharged dual overhead cam mid-engine. Yes, we said “mid-engine.” You’ll find that sucker in the backseat. A dial inside lets you adjust horsepower from 600 to 850, both of which sound like pretty nice options. You can view a ton of pictures of the project that took 11,000 hours to complete at Eckert’s Rod & Custom’s site.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
