Usually, Halloween is filled with grim visions and ghosts and Jamie Lee Curtis. Today, though, the DHL wagon stopped by TCC Blog central and dropped off a mysterious envelope marked "Confidential!" No candy, not so much as a fun-size Three Musketeers.

Other car blogs got similar packages--and maybe they didn't have to track down a Windows machine to upload their CD-embedded video clips to YouTube. (Be more Mac-friendly, world!) Now that we're live with the video, it's plain to see someone at Ford wants you to know that SVT is alive and well.

In the clip here, Ford's F-150 bounds and leaps over a dusty trail--easily, even though the intro says "Yes, it's 'stock.'" We're not sure what to make of that yet, but we're assuming more info will be coming in a future sealed envelope. Does it mean a full-fledged return of SVT starting with a truck, or is this it? What's the powertrain? When can we drive it?

Until then, savor this short clip:
