for sale is my 1979 ford f-100. now to answer the #1 question of the day...why am I starting it for so little?... The truck was purchased for work, I am a carpenter, and my former partner, whom the truck was purchased for, has moved back out West, to help his mother who is rapidly losing her vision. Before leaving he (who claimed to be a good mechanic) removed the engine, and it was rebuilt. After words he started putting the engine compartment back together, but is still apart... radiator hoses, exhaust system, power steering pump, and probably more. I say probably more, because once again I am a carpenter, and not a mechanic. Before he completed the work on the truck, the plan was to finish the work on the truck, and then for him to leave. I was going to give the truck to him, but we had a falling out, and he left our partnership under bad terms, and the truck incomplete. Now after sitting around for a little over 6 months, I do not really know what to do with it. I have already spent more money on it than I had planned, and refuse to spend another dime on it! I have a great truck, and every time I look at this one, it just brings up bad memories. I can only compare this feeling, to having an ex-girlfriend as a roommate! I know very little about these trucks, only what I have been told. I do know these things,...The 351 is what is known as a modified, manual brakes(no power assist), but has front disc brakes. Was told the frame is in good shape...apparently when this model has frame issues the cab and the bed meet at the top of the bed. As you can see from the side picture, this truck has no apparent issues here. Was also told that the body is very "clean" (although in need of new paint). The bed has one place on the passenger side forward of back tire, about the size of a car tag. The tailgate has a place about the size of a soda can, on the lower left side. The truck has always been in the South, and has very little surface rust, which I find surprising, due to the paint condition. Extras...lots of extras!! In the back of the truck there are two doors left and right, an extra dash panel, two drive shafts, a radiator (the one in the engine compartment is in place), four wheels (3 of which with tires, of unknown condition). There are exhaust parts, and the front bumper, but I am pretty sure they are the ones that came off, thus not making them extra, just there. the cap is included, as I have no obvious use for it. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask, I will answer to the best of my ability... My feedback score is a perfect 100%, and I do not want to change that!! If the truck were actually in driving condition, I would be starting the bid at a much higher price, so my loss, your gain. I am a big fan of old cars, and hate to see something just sit around and go downhill, so I hope someone who is mechanically inclined will give it a good new home! Thanks for checking out my auction!

This really was a matter of when, rather than if. Volkswagen will apparently be the first manufacturer to phase out naturally aspirated engines in favor of turbocharging its full slate. VW is kind of responsible for ushering in this push towards small-displacement, turbocharged engines that's taken the industry by storm. When it dropped its direct-injection, 2.0-liter turbo in the 2005 GTI it demonstrated that strapping an iron long to an engine can enhance the powertrain as a whole. VW made fuel economy gains, while also giving a linear, non-laggy turbo experience that it has replicated, model-after-model, to this day.

Speaking with The Detroit News, Volkswagen's executive Vice President of Group Quality, Marc Trahan, told the paper that, "We only have one normally aspirated gas engine, and when we go to the next generation vehicle that it's in, it will be replaced. So three, four years maximum."
Really, it's hard to get teary-eyed about either of these engines going away. VW has access to smaller powerplants that could easily match the performance of the 2.5 five-cylinder and the 3.6 V6, while gobbling up less fuel and providing a better driving experience. What we are sad about is that a similar statement about the extinction of NA engines came from the Vice President of Powertrain Engineering at Ford, Joe Bakaj. We'd certainly get teary-eyed over a world without Ford's excellent 5.0-liter V8.
Owners of Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner, Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan models, listen up. According to a report on Automotive News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into these four vehicles totaling an estimated 725,000 units. The investigation appears to center around a malfunctioning throttle body on non-hybrid models of the 2005-2012 Escape and 2011-2012 Fusion. With Mercury dying off after the 2011 model year, this probe will also apply to the 2005 through 2011 Mariner and the 2011 Milan. There has been some discussion around the Escape stalling issue for some time now, but this investigation appears to be larger in scope than before.

Though not a recall yet, NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) has received 123 complaints of stalling or surging vehicles, while Ford itself has logged 1,472 complaints. The investigation report, which is posted below, seems to indicate that a faulty circuit board for the throttle body could cause the vehicle to go into limp mode, which, according to NHTSA, could cause complaints of both stalling and surging.
How does one make fast, loud, drifting cars better? Well, you can add more fast, loud, drifting cars or you can add lasers. Either or, really. In this case, Castrol did the right thing and added both, creating a highly stylized commercial for its Edge Titanium motor oil starring South African racer Adrian Zaugg, BMW factory driver Augusto Farfus, Audi DTM and Le Mans staple Mike Rockenfeller and some bloke named Ken Block.
Their cars? No surprise, but Block is in his Ford Fiesta GRC, while Zaugg samples a Lamborghini Aventador and Farfus and Rockenfeller drive along party lines, with a BMW M4 and an Audi R8, respectively. And those cars look good, too, thanks to the creative light and laser work on display.
Take a look below for the video from Castrol.
