Up for auction is this clean, nice looking Ford F-150. It is the XLT package, and has a long bed with bed liner. There is a lockable steel tool box in the bed. This truck runs well, starts right up, and has good acceleration. The 4WD works well. AC blows cold, radio works, as well as all other vehicle systems. Interior is clean, and has power lumbar supports in the seats.I bought the truck two years ago and I have only put about 3K miles on it, mostly driving it to the transfer station and lumber yard. I have used it mostly as a hauling vehicle, and to drive my kids to school on snow days. I bought it in Pennsylvania from a guy who used it as a commuter truck. I have replaced the Oxygen sensor, all springs, brakes, front struts, and rear tires.

Bad points: O2 sensor replaced, but the Check Engine light comes on intermittently lately. Possibly the sensor is loose.  There is some rust on the passenger door frame, and the rear wells are rusted, which I covered with a set of after market trim covers. The manifold gaskets are worn. I brought the truck to two different shops, and neither one would do the repair. They told me that it was not worth it to try to get the manifolds off, because the bolts would likely break, and the cost to remove the bolts and tap the block would be excessive. Passenger door power lock does not unlock.

This is, overall, a great truck for someone who is going to treat it right and get a lot more good years out of it. And, with the old school body style, you will look country cool driving it.  Happy Bidding !!!

Terms are cash or money order, within seven days of auction close. You may inspect before auction close. After close, winning bid is bound to purchase. Shipping may be arranged, depending on distance.

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's J Mays feels vindicated by Fusion reception

Tue, 25 Sep 2012 16:30:00 EST

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.

Justin Bell makes a horrible policeman

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 19:29:00 EST

If you're wondering what type of person makes a good police officer, it seems a racecar driver doesn't. Let us rephrase that: Justin Bell, a racecar driver and the host of Motor Trend's World's Fastest Car Show, recently got behind the wheel of a 5.0-liter Ford Mustang police car with Sergeant Daniel Shrubb, co-founder of DRAGG (Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti), and proved that his high-performance-driving skillset is a bit too aggressive for police duty.
While it's easy to get carried away in a Mustang GT, a patrol car driver must maintain some sort of restraint while pursuing a criminal, so as not to come off as a reckless driver to the public. We'll admit, some pursuit techniques are counter-intuitive to performance driving (stay off the gas in a lane-change exercise?), but Bell's judicious use of the handbrake can't be normal procedure.
Watch "The One With The Ford Mustang 5.0 Police Car" (yes, we caught the Friends reference too) below to see some shenanigans in one of Michigan's finest patrol cars.
