K&N’s July 2015 calendar page features one of the most classically customized post-war cars produced in the United States. The 1949 Ford was the first all-new automobile design introduced by the Big Three after World War II. The 1949 Ford is lovingly referred to as the "Shoebox Ford" for its slab-sided, "ponton" design, which ushered in modern streamlined car design. The 1949 Ford, along with its FoMoCo cousin, the Mercury Eight spawned the classic “Lead Sled” hot rod movement of the 1950’s. “Lead” referred to the molten metal body filler material used in repairing and customizing body panels as well as the extra weight added by the repair material, while the term "Sled” referred to the chopping and lowering of the car which gave an impression of “slip sliding” down the highway.

Effectively complimenting the car is Miss Jessica Lyn. A self-described “Rocker Chick” at heart, Jessica’s goal in life is not to be rich or famous, but to be happy with herself and her life. In fact, one of her hobbies is baking cupcakes and she hopes to one day open her own bakery. The June 2015 K&N calendar page is finished off with a vintage military themed backdrop thanks to the folks over at the March Air Field Museum. The March Air Field Museum in Riverside, California first opened in 1979 and embraces March Air Force Base’s history dating back to its opening in 1918.
