Video: Meet BJ Baldwin’s New Ride

BJ Baldwin is to trucks what Ken Block is to Cars. As in he beats the everliving piss out of them for our entertainment, and we thank him for that. He shows the complete badassery of Trophy Trucks in a way our ADD generation can understand. His Recoil videos are awesome, and you should stop being productive right now and watch them. When Ken Block got bored with his 600+ hp Rally Cars he turned to a completely off the rails AWD Mustang. BJ, having come to the conclusion that his 850 horsepower Trophy Truck is a bit old hat now and he needed an upgrade. How do you top a Trophy Truck? They are the text-book definition of  machismo. It does not get more badass than that. Or does it?

Yes, yes it does. In the form of a 1959 Ferret Scout. The Ferret started out life in 1952 as a British tank. Yes a 6 wheel honest to goodness tank, and it was in service from 1952 – 1971. BJ has retrofitted and Baldwin-ized his though. Gone is the boring Rolls Royce 6 cylinder. In its place is an LS, because LS’s literally go in everything and this is further proof of that.

The following video is just a tease, more a Toyo commercial then the true nuttery we have come to expect from BJ. Still worth the watch though. Mostly cause watching this thing tool around at speeds it was never intended to reach is highly entertaining.
