What do you get when you mix the drifting skills of Vaughn Gittin Jr. and the shenanigans of skateboarding legend Rob Dyrdek? Why, a skateboarding car, of course. The two pair paired up for the season premiere of season three of MTV's "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory", the obvious connection being the shared sponsorship of Monster Energy Drink. Using a 2011 Mustang GT gussied up in Vaughn's drift car livery, the duo fitted a grind plate to the bottom of the car and attacked the quarter pipes and rails custom-built by California Skateparks just for the occasion.

The video of both Vaughn and Rob driving the skateboard Mustang can be seen when the show airs on MTV on Monday, July 12th at 9:30 pm ET/PT, but you can get a preview of Vaughn attempting a board slide in the video after the jump (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/07/07/video-vaughn-gittin-jr-and-rob-dyrdek-create-the-worlds-first/#continued).
