The Real Thing is a short documentary about Bodie Stroud, a custom hot rod builder from Los Angeles, California and his 1969 Can-Am Mustang.

As if the restored classic wasn't bad ass enough, Stroud dropped an extremely rare motor built specifically for racing legend Mario Andretti. The short film follows Stroud during the restoration process and is there to capture the moment Stroud comes face to face with Andretti at the SEMA car show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
