2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: More Cultural References

November 05, 2010


Maybe we should call our 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor a muse. Photographer Scott Jacobs compared the Raptor to the Macho Man. Editor Paul Seredynski wrote that it reminds him of "Pepe" the truck in the Romancing the Stone movie. And for a recent caption contest we stuck a Darth Vader mask on it. Now I've got three other cultural references that often pop into my head when I'm driving the thing.


Sgt. Apone from Aliens. Not so much for him but for one of his lines in the movie: "Absolute bad-##@@#!"


Metallica. Specifically, the point in the Enter Sandman video when the black semi-truck runs into the mattress. Boom!


These guys. Sorta obvious, I guess.
