After years of speculation, Ford finally revived one of favorite vehicles of all time when they pulled the curtain on the 2021 Ford Bronco. Yes, we really want one. Yes, we got on the pre-order list. Yes, we’d love to park one in the driveway. And yet, we can’t help but keep eyeing the excellent vintage restomods that come out Velocity Restorations. The Velocity Restorations 1978 Ford Bronco you see here is the perfect examples of what we’re talking about. Not only is it a pristine example of that retro 2+2 hardtop style with its split red / white paintjob, it has been completely rebuilt to absolutely embarrass other cars at the track. How is that possible with a truck that’s 40+ years old? Restore the bodywork, repaint it and then strap it to all new equipment including a 5.0-liter Coyota crate engine, Whipple 2.9L supercharger, VR custom headers, exhaust, Magnaflow mufflers and a 6R80 6-speed transmission. Put all of that together and you have the recipe for a gorgeous truck outputting 700+ horsepower.

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.
