This is my '67 Ford Fairlane 500 GT clone. It has a 351 Windsor, lots of chrome, that was rebuilt with a mild cam, headers, aluminum intake and 4 bbl carburetor. The engine and C4 automatic transmission are a matching drive train out of a '71 Mustang. The transmission, with B&M shifter and shift kit, was rebuilt to stock specs 1 year ago and shifts perfectly. The car is fun to drive with power steering, power front disc brakes and AM/FM CD radio. The disc brake booster was rebuilt 4 years ago. I've had the car up to 75 mph and it drives smoothly with no shake, shimmy or pulling. It has true dual exhaust with aftermarket mufflers, although I don't know the brand, I can say it has a nice deep throaty tone. The car starts right up and drives impressively. The bright red interior was redone 4 years ago and is in excellent condition. Glass is very good, no cracks or chips, and the windows roll up and down easily. All electric items (wipers, lights, radio, turn signals, gas gauge etc.) work great. The body is rust free and was repainted also 4 years ago. The paint job is good "driver" quality and is fine for local show and shine car shows but would need to be refinished for serious showing. The car does not leak in the passenger or trunk areas and does not have that "musty smell" many older cars have. There are a few "blisters" over the left rear wheel well that can be ground off and a small area on the trunk lid needs attention. The Tiger Paw ASC radials are mounted on 14" Magnum 500 wheels and are almost new and have lots of tread left. I refitted the entire power steering system with new hoses and pump about 18 months ago. New Heavy Duty front coil springs and shocks were installed a year ago. The rear leaf springs were also replaced a year ago with new springs that offer a 3" lift and new shocks.Headlight and tail light bezels were rechromed and polished . Included with car I have new O.E.M door handles, trunk boards, plaid trunk mat, door scuff plates, a very nicely reconditioned complete bumper jack and an extra Magnum 500 wheel for a spare. Bumpers are in good condition but would need to rechromed for serious showing. I've had the car for 3 years and I'm preparing to retire and have other non-automotive projects to work on. Thanks for looking. Vehicle sold "as is" with no stated or implied warranty.

The Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST have created plenty of excitement in the sport compact segment, and Ford is looking to make sure that owners are driving and enjoying their cars to the best of their abilities. As an added bonus for buying one of these sporty hatchbacks, Ford will provide a complimentary ST Octane Academy session to be held at the Miller Motorsports Park in Utah.
Sat, 30 Mar 2013 08:58:00 EST
Attendees will be responsible for travel and lodging, but Ford will provide the driving school free of charge. Included in this two-day trip, ST owners will get class instruction and driving instruction in prepped Focus ST and Fiesta ST models on the track and autocross course. Some karting action will also be involved as will a tour of Ken Block's Hoonigan Racing headquarters located nearby. If this doesn't sound like enough fun, there is also an optional day of activities that includes some more track time in a Mustang GT and off-road instruction in an F-150 SVT Raptor.
Ford told us that those who have already purchased a Focus ST or Fiesta ST will still be able to attend the performance driving school, but the press release, which is posted below, makes it sound like it applies to original owners only. Ford has yet to announce its schedule for the ST Octane Academy or prices for additional activities or guests.
The sixth edition of the Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards have crowned a wide range of winners - in a couple of cases the recipient of the laurels might say more about KBB users than they do about the actual winner. Compiled from the responses of more than 12,000 shoppers on KBB.com over the past year, there are 13 categories broken into non-luxury, luxury and truck segments "representing the combined wisdom of the American car-buying public."

The award categories have been revamped this year, with some dropping off, some new ones appearing and at least one other given a new term. What isn't surprising is that Honda won Most Trusted Brand for the second year running, Best Value Brand for the third year in a row and took Best Overall Brand, which wasn't on last year's list of awards.
On our own shores, in the non-luxury categories Chrysler got Most Refined Brand and Buick took Best Value Luxury Brand. Neither one of those marques won anything in last year's Brand Image Awards, while Cadillac, which won Best Interior Design Brand and Best Comfort Brand last year - those awards disappeared this year - went home without a single accolade.
It was only a matter of time before law enforcement agencies would realize the potential of driver-assist technology for use in their Ford Police Interceptors, and, now that they have, those back-up cameras and radar systems won't be used just for parking, but for security, as well.
The surveillance mode system works when the camera or radar detects movement from behind the vehicle, and if it does when it's activated, an alarm will alert the officer inside the car, the driver's side window will roll up and the doors will lock, protecting the officer from an unwanted intrusion. The officer, of course, has the option to turn surveillance mode off, mainly in urban areas where pedestrians would constantly set the alarm off, and it can only be activated when the police car is in park.
Randy Freiburger, Ford's police and ambulance fleet supervisor, came up with the patent-pending idea when researching the needs of police officers and riding along with them, during which time he realized officers would be safer with an extra set of eyes watching the area behind their cars, especially at night or when they're completing paperwork, using the in-car computer or handling a radar gun. "Unfortunately, there are people with bad intentions who sneak up on police officers," he says.
