 For bid here is my 1985 F-150 Stepside.  The truck had sat for a number of years before I bought it and got it running.  I have replaced all the hard brake lines, front hoses, and master cylinder.  The 4wd works fine and the transmission shifts pretty well, however the clutch has chatter at times.  There is rust on the truck that I had intended to work on but I do not have the time to repair it.  There is also body damage and dents at various areas.  The one side of the fiberglass bed has a good sized crack.  The wooden floor of the bed has some holes in it.  The interior is in pretty good condition, but needs some more cleaning and the blower motor does not turn on which I have not looked into.  The lights on the truck work but it needs a left headlight.  The truck is rough around the edges but could certainly be worse and may make a good restoration or off road project.  The photos were taken with the truck running and as you can see the engine does not smoke and it idles fine.  I'm sure it could use a tune up and more regular use.  I must sell this truck as-is because I do not know everything about it and it has obviously been around a very long time.  The title is a good PA title in my name, and the truck should be hauled from here and not driven as it should be looked over thoroughly.  Please only bid if you have good feedback and want to own the truck.  Thank you for looking.

180,000 new vehicles are sitting, derailed by lack of transport trains

Wed, 21 May 2014 11:00:00 EST

If you're planning on buying a new car in the next month or so, you might want to pick from what's on the lot, because there could be a long wait for new vehicles from the factory. Locomotives continue to be in short supply in North America, and that's causing major delays for automakers trying to move assembled cars.
According to The Detroit News, there are about 180,000 new vehicles waiting to be transported by rail in North America at the moment. In a normal year, it would be about 69,000. The complications have been industry-wide. Toyota, General Motors, Honda and Ford all reported experiencing some delays, and Chrysler recently had hundreds of minivans sitting on the Detroit waterfront waiting to be shipped out.
The problem is twofold for automakers. First, the fracking boom in the Bakken oil field in the Plains and Canada is monopolizing many locomotives. Second, the long, harsh winter is still causing major delays in freight train travel. The bad weather forced trains to slow down and carry less weight, which caused a backup of goods to transport. The auto companies resorted to moving some vehicles by truck, which was a less efficient but necessary option.

NHTSA releases updated Takata airbag recalled cars list, but it still has errors

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:31:00 EST



Unfortunately, the government's list still contains errors.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued an updated list of vehicle models that it's urging owners to repair under the mushrooming Takata airbag inflator recall. The latest version adds vehicles from new automakers like Subaru and Ford that are missing from the original announcement, and it also removes erroneous entries from General Motors, leaving only the 2005 Saab 9-2X (a reskinned Subaru WRX), and the 2003-2005 Pontiac Vibe, a joint project with Toyota.

Car and Driver lists 10Best for 2013, same as it ever was

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 13:30:00 EST

Forgive us for having the distinct feeling of déjà vu, but it certainly feels like we've been here before. By that we are referring Car and Driver and the announcement of its annual 10Best vehicles for 2013. To be sure, it's an impressive selection of cars that combine heart-pounding performance and frugal sensibilities, but it also represents something of a broken record on the part of C/D. We're not so sure that's a flaw, though, as the resulting list is tough to argue with.
Vehicles like the Ford Mustang, Porsche Boxster, and BMW 3 Series have maintained their high-horsepower spots on this list for several years now. Even on the more practical and nimble end, the Honda Accord, Honda Fit and Mazda Miata have not budged. These continued spots are even in light of redesigns for some vehicles such as the Accord, Boxster and 3 Series.
In fact, the only newcomer to the 10Best list this year are the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins, which knocked out the Cadillac CTS-V. We think it would have been a huge misstep to have excluded the FR-S/BRZ, even in light of the supercharged Caddy's lamentable departure from 10Best.
