    A Ford with a Chevy motor is probably one of the most popular rat rod recipes out there.. And the Chrysler Torqueflight transmission is one of the automatic transmissions of choice.. There are kits available that make a Chevy powered Ford with a Mopar transmission very easy to build.

    This is the Nook Simple Touch, which was available yesterday. The Nook Color's been out since November. It's news because the various Nooks have been rooted for a while now, and the latest Nook iteration apparently did nothing to make it harder.
