1995 Ford Bronco Xlt on 2040-cars

Year:1995 Mileage:141147
Location:

1995 Ford Bronco XLT

This is my daily driver 1995 Ford Bronco. The Bronco runs good with the 351 V-8 with automatic transmission. The tires and brakes are good. All of the lights work. Good battery. Good glass. The truck is inspected and road worthy; it has 141,147 miles on it. I bought it in 2009 and put 16,000 miles on it.

There were some repairs done on the truck:

Replaced 4 ball joints.

Replaced all brake lines from ABS block to all wheels.

Replaced some of the universal joints.

There is a new oil pump, oil pan, and gasket set. There is an extra rear window motor.

That's the good news. Now for the bad. The body will need significant repair; the fenders and quarterpanels especially. Rust has eaten through some sections. There may be other areas that have rusted through. It will need a full paint job as the existing paint is weak. The frame looks ok, no rust through. But rust does cover most sections and should have a more thorough inspection.

Subaru Legacy pitted against Roadkill project cars

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 20:04:00 EST

There's an evergreen debate among auto enthusiasts about whether they would prefer to have the latest and greatest car of today or a certified classic from yesteryear. What if you had to further define that, though, and the choice was between a brand new 2015 Subaru Legacy or a turbocharged Datsun 240Z with a hatch that wouldn't close? Roadkill aimed to find out that and more in one of its best videos to date.
According to the hosts, Subaru came to them, handed over some money and challenged Roadkill's project cars against its latest Legacy. The result is every bit as good (or better) than any automotive-themed show you could find on television.
Things start simple with a figure-eight race in a rodeo arena with the Subaru taking on Roadkill's 1968 Ford Ranchero, originally built for ice racing. From there the Legacy races a 1968 Dodge Charger with no windows around and off-road rally stage. Finally, the Subie goes head-to-head against the Rotsun, the aforementioned turbocharged 240Z, through an abandoned neighborhood. Plus, there's a bonus drag race challenging them all.

Ford gives police chiefs tech to surveil officers in their own cars

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 19:00:00 EST

Police officers certainly have a difficult job in keeping the streets safe, but as public employees in positions of authority, there is still a very real need for oversight. To that end, Ford is partnering with a tech company to offer a new system called Ford Telematics for Law Enforcement on its line of Police Interceptor patrol vehicles that could make cops safer, while giving cities a better idea of what its officers are doing.
The system streams live data about cruisers back to the home base to people like the police chief or shift supervisor. That info includes expected things like speed, location and cornering acceleration, but it gets incredibly granular as well, with records of things like if emergency lights are on, or even if an officer is wearing a seatbelt.
Ford Telematics for Law Enforcement "ought to protect officers as much as it protects the public," said Ford spokesperson Chris Terry to Autoblog. Constantly monitoring patrol cars offers cities a lot of advantages, too. First, it reduces potential liability because a department can prove where each vehicle is at all times. Also, officers know they are being watched and may potentially drive more safely.

Report: GM struggling to market turbo technology

Tue, 20 Apr 2010 16:01:00 EST

In the automotive realm, marketing can sometimes prove just as important as the actual product. Take, for instance, Ford's well regarded EcoBoost technology, which couples turbocharging with direct injection to produce more horsepower and reduce fuel consumption. Would it surprise you to hear that General Motors has had similar technology on the market for over three years?
It's true. GM's first turbocharged, direct injected powerplants hit the market for the 2007 model. The 2.0-liter Ecotec mills put down an impressive 260 horsepower and a matching 260 pound-feet of torque, and they were lauded by the press in the engine bays of the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, Chevrolet Cobalt SS and Chevrolet HHR SS. But few people outside a core group of enthusiasts actually remember this fact.
Says Uwe Grebe, executive director of GM's global advanced engineering, "We didn't have a badge and say, 'This is the most important thing we will put on all our brochures.'" Ford, however, did just that, and it's EcoBoost engines are right at the tips of all our tongues when we discuss today's most advanced powerplants. So, how does The General fix its mistake?
