1959 Ford F100 Stepside 4x4 on 2040-cars
Fairland, Indiana, United States
1959 Ford F100 Stepside 4x4 truck. 292 "Y" Block engine, Holley 2 Barrel carb. Runs great, but I did have to put a charge on the battery. Battery will be replaced if needed. Has Spicer 24 Transfer case, Warn lock outs and the 4x4 works. I only took it off road very limited but would use it in the snow some for fun. Has Falken Rocky Mtn tires, 33x12.5x15, Load C that are in good shape but do have a little checking. Class 5 Reese hitch not installed but comes with it. No speakers are currently hooked up to under dash radio. Dash remains intact. Interior is in great shape from a mid '90s frame off restoration. Exterior could use a new paint job after surface rust prep. I bought the truck from out of Colorado, but it was owned by the Gpa in California who owned a shop and did the resto. He died after truck was done and they left it set under a tree. Brakes, carb, tires, tune up were done before I got it 1 1/2 yrs ago. Frame and under the radiator are notched for what appears to be a forward mounted PTO driven pump or whinch at one time. Don't know for sure, but truck was probably Govt, Municipal, Forestry??? You don't come acrossed original '59 4x4 very often. I Hate to sell this unique truck, but need $ for a real estate deal. I will work with your shipper and truck can stay here for 1 month after paid in full. For sale locally and I reserve the right to end auction early. I will be glad to talk with you on the phone about truck and all I know of the history from previous owner. Questions call Brent @ 317-446-4824 * mileage is unknown

The 2014 Formula Drift series kicked off last weekend in Long Beach, and saw Chris Forsberg, who you'll recall went mad and drifted around a warehouse in an Infiniti M, take the title behind the wheel of his Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z (shown above).
Forsberg really ran away with the first round of competition, outscoring his closest opponent, second-place finisher Kenneth Moen and his Bridges Racing Nissan 240SX, by 20 points. Third place was 2013 championship winner Michael Essa and his Yokohama BMW M3, 30.5 points behind Forsberg.
In the manufacturers' title, Nissan took an early lead with 122 points, which isn't a huge surprise considering five of the top ten drifters were piloting either a Z or a product of the brand's S platform. Ford, which had two drivers (Justin Pawlak and Vaughn Gittin, Jr.) in the top ten, took home second place, while BMW is currently third in the manufacturers' standings.
Highly intrigued, we recently visited a Southern California Gas Company office to check out several hybrid vehicles promising something new. Unlike more commonplace gasoline-electric hybrids, we were there to evaluate innovative gasoline-compressed natural gas (CNG) hybrids - yes, they run on unleaded gasoline and compressed natural gas. According to the experts on hand, this arrangement delivers extended range and reduced emissions while chipping in with lower operating costs than pure-gasoline vehicles. There are advantages over its gasoline-electric counterparts, as well.
The program is part of a three-way collaboration between The Carlab, a Southern California-based automotive consulting firm, Landi Renzo USA, a company specializing in alternative fuel solutions, and America's Natural Gas Alliance, a group that promotes CNG. Long story short, the team has engineered a way to allow a modified internal combustion vehicle to seamlessly switch between two fuels (gasoline and CNG) with no driver intervention. In theory, and if it works as well as promised, it's a win-win for the vehicle owner and the environment.
Parked at the Gas Company office were six different gasoline-CNG hybrid vehicles. To demonstrate the technology's versatility (just about any gasoline vehicle may be modified) Carlab brought a varied assortment of bodystyles, each from a different automaker. After taking a quick glance at the half-dozen in the parking lot, we made a beeline for the performance-oriented Ford Mustang GT - a 2012 model - with the six-speed manual gearbox.
