Here is a classic 1958 Ford Skyliner Hard Top Convertible available for sale. This pink & white Fairlane is in
terrific condition and ready to enjoy. Turn on the ignition, drop the power top and off you go! Car was fully
restored approximately 12 years ago (per previous owner) and has been used sparingly the last six years (and driven
less than 300 miles during that time).
It is believed to be a three owner car. Original owner was a mechanic. Car was purchased about six years ago as a
Sunday driver but current owner never really got around to driving this car. Professional and family obligations
took up most free time he would otherwise have had to enjoy the car.
Car has been properly maintained. Seats, door panels, headliner all in terrific shape. Seat belts installed for
five passengers. The car starts, runs and drives nicely and the factory hardtop works great*. Within the past few
weeks, car has received a tune-up, fluids flushed, hoses replaced, oil changed – the engine is mechanically
sound. As seen in the photos, both exterior and interior show very well.
*Upon inspection (and to the best of my knowledge), the chrome bumpers has some pitting and minor rust (nothing
serious that would deter me if I was a buyer). While the body/paint is in very, very good condition, there are some
minor rust spots – examples documented in the photos (again, if I was a buyer I wouldn’t be deterred). If you
were to stand five feet from the car, these imperfections wouldn’t be noticeable.
Car is an automatic with power windows, power steering and power assist brakes. Heating and radio works (no a/c).
Wipers do not fully operate (they will sweep the window one way but not come down). The clock, map and headliner
lights do not work. While the top goes up and down, it can be temperamental at the start. There are 1957 hubcaps on this 1958 model. Odometer works and shows approximately 79,500 miles. I would rate this
To summarize, while there are some items that need discretionary attention, this American classic Fairlane 500
Convertible is a great car for leisurely drives – a terrific boulevard cruiser to be enjoyed with the wife (or
hubby), kids or grandchildren that can also be used as a daily driver.

Forza Horizon announces January Recaro Car Pack with LFA N"urburgring Edition

Wed, 26 Dec 2012 16:01:00 EST

Another month, another car pack for Forza Horizon. This time it's the Recaro Car Pack featuring a motley gang of cars and trucks: the 1983 GMC Vandura G-1500, 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R, 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV, 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR, 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition and 2012 Lotus Exige S.
It'll be up for download on Xbox Live on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013 for 400 MS Points. As usual, if you have the Forza Horizon Season Pass you can get them all free, and Season Pass holders will also get a bonus car that's not pictured: the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster.
The Pagani is everything opposite to that Vandura, but while you might not ever win anything with the van, you can always use the back of it as a place to give out free hugs. Check out the video and press release below for more details.

Ford posts record pre-tax Q3 profit of $2.6B

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 13:28:00 EST

Ford took in $2.6 billion in pre-tax profits in the third quarter of the year, making for a record trio of months that saw the Blue Oval's year-over-year earnings increase by $426 million. The earnings are being attributed not just to improvements in North American sales, but sales around the globe.
Revenue was up 12 percent, to $36 billion, although net income took a hit, dropping $359 million to $1.3 billion. Ford was dinged with $498 million in pre-tax charges, which are being blamed for the drop in net income.
The news has boosted Ford's hopes for full-year results, bumping it's total profits up past $8 billion, according to Automotive News. The Dearborn, MI-based manufacturer is still expecting a loss in Europe, although it's forecasted less than the $1.73 billion it burned in 2012. In fact, according to CFO Bob Shanks, Ford's European losses dropped by 51 percent year-over year, a huge improvement for the brand.

Man turns Ford Fiesta into a one-car band

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 10:45:00 EST

The one-man band is a rather ridiculous idea, drawing up images of one person attempting to manipulate several instruments, at once, in a vain attempt at creating music. It's usually represented by silly scenes like this. Interestingly, the concept isn't much more successful when the "man" in "one-man band" is replaced with "car," as we see in this video.
It seems that someone rigged up and edited (699 times, we might add) a Ford Fiesta, a bucket, 12 PVC pipes and the natural sounds that a car makes to come up with a song. Now, we don't recognize the tune, so we've no idea if this is a cover or an original piece. And while it's hardly Beethoven, we have to admire the amount of effort the "conductor" went to in his attempt to turn a subcompact car into a musical instrument(s). Take a look (or listen) below for the entire video.
