Robert Downey Jr.’s 1970 Ford Boss 302 Mustang—much like the actor himself—is a testament to the possibilities of a later in life resurrection. This thing is a damn near perfect example of a restomod gone completely right. What started as a first-gen Boss 302 was gutted in favor of a modern 5.0-liter V8 with a supercharger, which means it outputs more than 650 horsepower. It also got an aftermarket aluminum frame, a “pro touring” QuadraLink suspension, one-off HRE wheels, analog gauge cluster, updated interior, carbon-fiber body pieces and a unique paint job. Before you send the Mustang mafia after us for supporting modifications some would consider sacrilegious, the entire build was performed by the experts at Wisconsin-based SpeedKore with input from RDJ throughout the process. If the name SpeedKore sounds familiar, it’s because their cars have taken home plenty of awards from shows like SEMA and also appeared in multiple Fast and the Furious films.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
