Counts Kustoms had a Falcon with very little good metal, but still pulled off a magic trick by coming up with this very cool and innovative pool table

  1. I know the original hunk of junk was a Ranchero but not sure if it was a Falcon Ranchero. Kount had a bet that he would make a profit on the resto but car literally fell apart. Made a pool table with it and won the $500. bet. sold it to the guys on the Vegas Pawn stars show.

  2. The car was a Falcon Ranchero. This was about having no respect for the car.
    I have one of these that I am trying to put back together a nickel and dime at a
    time. They really pissed me off so I contacted them. The answer was "the floor boards
    were like swiss cheese", duh. It is a from the early sixties. And anyone familiar with
    the internet could find new floorboards in a few minutes. I saw the show. The car
    was not a "hunk of junk", it was in pretty good shape for an early 60's Ranchero.
    Was the last time I watched the show, they are not car guys. Just TV actors now.

  3. And if they would have done a little research, like 5 minutes worth they would
    have found out that the Falcon was the platform for the Mustang that Lee Ioccoca created.
    REAL car guys like Ak Miller, Holman and Moody, Bill Stroppe made rally cars out of them for Ford
    and they raced in International rallys. Holman Moody, Offenhauser, and Edelbrock
    competed making speed equipment for the 6 cylinders. I am pretty sure none of
    them considered making one into a pool table to win $500 in a stupid TV bet.
    So I will stick with my earlier statement, these guys totally dissed a cool car.
    It is all about TV, set up "chance meetings with cool cars on the street", bogus.
