    Galpin Auto Sports and some select flyboys from the USAF have combined forces to show fans two seriously tech'd out cars. The Ford Mustang "X-1" and the Dodge Challenger "VAPOR" are two new promotional products of this new found coalition force. With more gadgets inside of each than a high-schooler's backpack, both of these eye-catchers are set to turn heads and rally allies wherever they cruise. The two cars will be part of the 2009 Super Car Tour - a new US Air Force recruiting concept that started about a month ago. The two "carcraft" will also span the entire country this year as part of a mobile marketing initiative designed to inform youth about the various career fields and opportunities within the USAF. Keep reading to see the interiors of these cars--they are quite realistic!

    One cannot comprehend exactly how AWESOME those HRE wheels are on that car. I got to see a set dismounted at American Tire and Wheel and I had to be escorted out. I always wondered how they would look on the Mustang now i know.


    For the rest of the car cool but reminds me of some Vector models or the old Aston Martin Lagonda.

    Here are a couple of pics of the cockpit and body kit during the fabrication and installation. The third pic is what they were going to originally release, but apparently they made some changes before press time. Last but not least is a pic of my buddy Mike who helped with the build and sent me these pics. If you go to the Air force website you'll see a couple of vids of him. The story about the shifter is hilarious since he had that in his Scion XB 3 years ago and now GAS thinks it's so new and exciting. Who new we'd influence something like this?
