Factory LTD without the fake wood sides (those are Country Squires, this is an LTD Crown Victoria Station Wagon). Previous owners were non-smokers. Paint is faded but body and chrome are in good shape. There are a couple small dings on the back. Badging are missing. There is a patch where the clear coat is flaking off on the side of the left front quarter panel and there is some orange peel rust coming through the bottom of the left rear quarter panel. My mechanic says it is rusty underneath but not rusted through. The magic gate in back opens, but must be slammed hard to shut and the window doesn't roll down. This is an LX version with all the goodies and most everything works except the AC and the rear drivers side window. It has a 5.0 fuel injected V8 with a limited slip rear differential. The interior is in excellent condition. No dash cracks. No rips to the dark blue velour bench seats. Headliner is clean, in tact, and not sagging. So far have put over $3,000 into it. New tires and alignment, new smog pump, new thermostat, new headlights, new steel fuel line, new steel brake line, rear axle bearings repacked and resealed. Passed NJ inspection with a sticker until 2015. Runs and stops. I use it as a daily driver. Having said that, this is a 25 year old car with lots of squeaks and rattles. The motor runs strong. Just turned over 100K. The AC doesn't work and needs a conversion. I am offering the car as is with no warranty intended or implied. Winning bidder pays shipping or transportation costs. I have clean title and will exchange for cash only. I purchased this car in June from the second owner. He was a mechanic and used it to haul parts out in Red Lion, PA. Apparently, for the last couple years he was in ill health and died early this year. The car had been sitting for several months when I bought it from his widow and began putting money into it. Recently, I was transferred to a facility that is much farther away and as much as I love this car (so does everyone once else -- lots of honks and people coming up to you in supermarket parking lots), it will be too expensive for me to drive it back and forth now which is why I am considering selling it assuming the price is right.

2015 Ford F-150 named Truck of Texas, Lincoln and Jeep also awarded at Truck Rodeo

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:28:00 EST

The Ford Motor Company has a lot of reasons to celebrate after winning eight categories in this year's Texas Auto Writers Association's annual Truck Rodeo. Most important among them, the Blue Oval's latest 2015 Ford F-150 earned the prestigious Truck of Texas award, ending the Ram 1500's two-year winning streak. The 2015 Lincoln MKC also grabbed the honor as the CUV of Texas, and Ford was named Truck Line of Texas.
FoMoCo even took trophies for best technology with its extensive use of aluminum on its latest F-Series and best commercial vehicle for the new Transit 250. It wasn't a total sweep, though, because the Jeep Grand Cherokee grabbed the title of the SUV of Texas for the fifth straight time.
This year's event put 60 auto writers in 75 pickups, SUVs and crossovers and challenged them to find the best in a plethora of categories. All of the winners are listed below, and scroll down to read the full announcements from the Texas Auto Writers Association and Ford.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has a bit of a dyno issue

Tue, 28 May 2013 12:44:00 EST

We're of the mind that each and every dyno should come with Murphy's Law painted in big, visible letters down the side. For every ten successful dyno runs out there, it seems there's one where events to horribly wrong. Take, for example, the video below. The clip shows what happens when a Ford Shelby GT500 and a mobile dyno have a bit of a disagreement at the Performance Expo 24 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. We won't spoil the results for you, but we will say there's some substantial carnage involved.
It's unclear just how much damage ensues from the dust up or whether anyone was harmed in the incident, but from the looks of things, everyone made it out without serious injury. If only we could say the same for the machines involved. Check out the video below.

Project Ugly Horse: Part IX

One Step at a Time
Nearly every flavor of exotic driveline has been shoved into the ubiquitous Ford at some point or another.
Chuck Schwynoch had been patiently listening to my ramblings on the other end of the phone for a solid half hour. I'm not too big of a man to know when to ask for help, and at this point, I desperately needed some assistance. The truth is, working on a machine like a Fox Body Mustang is as easy as breathing thanks to the wealth of information available on the web. Nearly every flavor of exotic driveline has been shoved into the ubiquitous Ford at some point or another, and odds are the sorry souls behind those builds shared the highs and lows of their torment with the internet community.
