"Rob’s F-100 really does everything well. This year his truck had better brakes, more hp, and can now compete with the best."
Finishing Second in last year’s THROWDOWN event, Rob MacGreggor, of No Limit Engineering, didn’t take too kindly to having his ’55 F-100 not take home the gold. After an entire season of competing in Goodguys Autocross events, Rob had his old Ford dialed in and ready to compete. With a freshly rebuilt 392ci Ford Racing engine making more power than last year, the Ford proved it was ready to kick butt and take names. Rob also upgraded his brakes to big 14-inch units from Baer, which served him well under hard braking. Looking as flat as a stock car going through and around the cones, his F-100 is a sight to see. Interesting enough, Rob’s truck only won one event, but it did however, place Second in the stop box and road course, which provided enough points for First Place overall. Last year, we didn’t give him high marks on styling because he was missing a hood and running boards, but this year, the truck was complete and looked great. Owning a company that focuses on making old pieces of steel handle like sports cars, Rob proved his Blue Oval is an all-around performance g-Machine and proudly took home the title of THROWDOWN champion.
