 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.

Detroit 3 small cars lay an egg in latest Consumer Reports reliability study

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:31:00 EST

Consumer Reports has released its Annual Auto Reliability Survey and the results are, in a word, interesting. While we already covered the score-damaging effects of infotainment systems, there's another big angle to the data that's getting some attention - the utterly dismal scores of the Detroit Three's small car offerings.
The turbocharged Dodge Dart and Chevrolet Cruze, as well as the Ford Fiesta were their respective brands' lowest-scoring models, a stat that's made worse by the fact that the American automakers finished 25th, 21st and 23rd, respectively.
That's not acceptable for The Detroit Free Press' auto critic, Mark Phelan, who has penned a scathing critique of the D3's small car reliability scores, arguing that GM, Ford and Chrysler are "out of excuses."

Stock Miata beats bunch of high-powered cars in wet 1/4-mile drag race

Thu, 06 Jun 2013 14:57:00 EST

When is a stock, 167-horsepower Mazda MX-5 Miata quicker than a Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, Lamborghini Gallardo, Lotus Elise and a Porsche 911? When it's raining. Sort of.
Mazda Canada arranged a unique drag race to show off the fact that the Miata's optional power retractable folding hardtop can go from top-down to top-up in just 12 seconds flat. In this video, all six cars line up for a drag race, and it starts to rain (well, sort of - but you'll have to watch the video all the way to the end to see what we mean). The green flag is waved, and the timer starts as soon as the convertibles begin to put their tops up. But because the Miata's roof mechanism gets the car's roof back up a full 5.1 seconds quicker than the second-place car, the Mazda gets a serious advantage off the line for the actual drag race.
It's a fun video. And while we've spoiled the results (come on, the video was uploaded by Mazda, you knew the Miata was going to win), be sure to see how it all unfolds, below.

Total auto recalls already on record pace in 2014

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:30:00 EST

If you've noticed that there have been more recalls than usual this year, you may be on to something. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US market is on pace to break a record for recalls. In 2013, 22 million cars were recalled. We're only a third of the way through 2014, though, and we've already halved that figure, with 11 million units recalled. That's wild.
Considering the past few months, it shouldn't be a surprise that General Motors is leading the charge, with six million of the 11 million units recalled coming from one of the General's four brands. Between truck recalls, CUV recalls and the ignition switch recall, 2014 hasn't been a great year for GM.
Other recall leaders include Nissan (one million Sentra and Altima sedans), Honda (900,000 Odyssey minivans), Toyota (over one million units in a few recalls), Volkswagen (150,000 Passat sedans), Chrysler (644,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs) and most recently, Ford (434,000 units, the bulk of which were early Ford Escape CUVs). So while it's been a bad year for GM so far, its competitors aren't doing too well, either.
