Aaron Brown and his Uncatchable 1939 Ford Truck
One Fast '39 Ford Truck
Owner and operator of The Garage Shop in Catawba, NC, Aaron Brown is notorious for building fast cars, outrageous hot rods and has dedicated his life to building some of the coolest cars and trucks the world has seen. With his new project, "The Uncatchable", a 1939 Ford truck, he wanted something unique, something that had never been done before as well as something that he could use to honor the pioneers of speed who built the iconic hotrods that he had grown up with in his youth. Setting his sights on the Standing Mile record, Brown set about creating a street legal contender that could still tear up the track and hit its stride at Bonneville. Having spent over 20 years as a NASCAR fabricator, Brown picked a few tricks along the way and even championed a 2007 Dodge powered sprint car to 244.9mph and holds the record to this day. "The Uncatchable" is a '39 Ford on the outside, but is set up on a full NASCAR-inspired chassis and a 358ci Roush Yates engine. And a long list of sponsors including Call Family Distillers, C&R Racing, Roush Yates Performance Products, Vet Motorsports, Glad Precision, Race City Steel, Impact, Racers Drive, Goodwin Restorations and Racingjunk.com. "The Uncatchable" made its debut at the Charlotte Auto Fair in April and was an instant hit with the fans. The street legal land speed truck made a lot of heads turn with over 1,000 polaroid pictures taken in just two days for fans to take home as a memento. Since May, the truck has competed twice at the Ohio Mile and earned multiple records.
