2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Black Ops Edition
November 15, 2010
I'm snapping a pic of the Raptor at a Shell station -- figured I'd mention the joy of racking up $85 worth of 91 premium on the Inside Line fuel card -- when another gas station patron wanders up to me. He's standing around as his buddy fills his second-generation Integra (going classy with a primered front end, aftermarket wheels in back and black steel wheels in front).
"Hey, what kind of truck is that?" he asks. He's got a skullcap hat and a T-shirt that reads "That's What She Said."
"It's a Ford Raptor," I say.
"Huh. Cool. It looks like a black-ops truck. Or something from G.I. Joe," he says. Long pause. "Does it have any guns in it?" he asks. Hmm. Does he mean hidden machine guns and rockets or "guns" like personal firearms? Either way I'm not really inclined to find out. "Ha ha, no," I say. Time to go.
Still, he's right. Maybe Activision could put a Raptor into Call of Duty: Black Ops in addition to the Wrangler Black Ops.
