If you don't want the rest of your day to be shot due to endless day-dreaming, turn away now. Too late? Thought so. As usual, ICON is here to spoil our day with yet another drool-worthy ride that aims to hit us directly where it hurts. After presenting the E-Flyer and a Matte Black Toyota FJ44 in recent months, the Los Angeles-based carmarkers are now back with the Thriftmaster Pickup truck. Based on the classic Chevy 3100 pickup from the 40s and 50s, what ICON has done here is a mind-boggling combination of hotrod history with art. The vintage ride is entirely hand-made and can come customized to your modern tastes, including the option of a Wi-Fi Hot Spot and streaming Kenwood and Audison digital audio, among many other features. On the outside, in addition to the silky smooth chrome, you have your choice of either a matte or glossy ceramic clear coating finish that will have heads turning, especially when its 315 horsepower 5.3L E-Rod V8 (which can be supercharged) perks up.
