What's more badass than a Ford Raptor? A BULLETPROOF Ford Raptor.
Bubba Watson's no stranger when it comes to unique rides and his new custom Oakley Ford Raptor built by Mike Smith Fabrication in Huntington Beach is just that. Watson collaborated with Oakley’s golf and motorsports team to create this badass Raptor over a year ago and the final product is nothing short of amazing. The truck is custom wrapped in a black digital camouflage print, the front of the truck has a reworked 6160 billet aluminum Oakley grill, and a custom Oakley logo but the coolest feature by far on this truck is the fact that it's bulletproof, windows and all.
Just to top it all off, the truck also has four distinct horn sounds, including the legendary General Lee jingle, of course.
Here's a short video that Bubba put together to show off his new ride (in true Bubba fashion):
Shout out to Andrew for the tip!
I'm always intrigued to learn what various executives drive, especially when it's someone from a company I like. Case and point is Richard Barton, the CEO of Zillow and formerly of Expedia. Thanks to a recent article posted at Geekwire, I learned that Richard Barton choses to drive a 2013 Ford GT California Custom. For an exec who can probably drive anything he chooses, this is quite the odd Seattle car. The Ford GT rivals cars like the BMW M3 which I would say is a much more popular car in Seattle. Or perhaps a Porsche Cayenne would better fit. I can think of a number of cars but the Ford Mustang is not one.
So what car would you expect an exec like Rich Barton to be driving?
