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.

Toyota isn't convinced the Ford Focus was the best-selling nameplate globally last year. Bloomberg reports that for the second time in seven months, both Toyota and Ford are laying claim to the title. Ford cites R.L. Polk & Co. data that says the automaker moved some 1.02 million Focus models in 2012 compared to just 872,774 Toyota Corolla units. But Toyota says the actual figure is closer to 1.16 million Corolla models.

Last year, Ford said it took the sales crown through the fist half of 2012 based on information from IHS Automotive, but Toyota pointed out those numbers left out models like the Corolla-based Matrix and Auris, as well as the Corolla Fielder and Scion xB-based Corolla Rumion. Whether or not Toyota's belief that all these cars should be counted in the Corolla bucket is accurate or not is seemingly up for debate... as is the question of why it matters so much to both parties.
This time around, Ford is holding the line that the Focus is the "best-selling nameplate," with Erich Merkle, a US sales analyst with Ford saying the company's figure is, "a pure number that is verified by a third party." Toyota, meanwhile, has requested clarification from Polk.
Let's get this unfortunate though important tidbit out of the way right off the bat: The Ford S-Max isn't sold in the United States, and it's not coming here, at least not anytime soon. And so it's with our European friends in mind that we share this information about the next-gen S-Max (previewed about a year ago in concept form) that is set to debut all across Europe next year and will be shown off at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. Now, moving on...

As with the first-gen S-Max, the new model will boast seating for seven passengers, along with a decent amount of storage space, all packed into a relatively reasonably sized package. Powering the front wheels (or optionally all four) will be the buyer's choice of EcoBoost gasoline-turbocharged or turbo-diesel four-cylinder engines along with automatic and manual transmission options. Included in the mix is a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost with 160 horsepower, though the 240-horse 2.0 is likely to be seen as the headliner.
There are all kinds of new technologies on offer, ranging from Adaptive Steering to Dynamic LED Headlamps with Glare-Free Highbeams, and it's all housed inside new, more sleekly designed bodywork riding atop a chassis with new suspension architecture designed to make the S-Max a people-hauler that's still fun to drive. For all the details, we suggest you scroll down below to read through Ford's official press release.
Halfway between Detroit and Chicago, there is a car museum that gives visitors a unique level of interaction with antique cars. The Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, MI has a driver's training class to teach people of any age to learn how to drive a Ford Model T.
From the crank starter to the column-mounted throttle control, this driving school teaches people all there is to know about driving and operating a Model T. Each class lasts about two and a half hours and is only open to 18 students. There are ten sessions planned for 2014 - twice a day on May 3, June 22, July 22, August 23 and September 14. The class costs $95 (or $85 for members), and it also includes a tour of the museum's automobile collection.
In addition to this driving school, the museum has plenty of exhibits on the property, and it's open all but three days per year (Easter, Christmas and New Year's Day) with free admission for school field trips and active military. Be sure to check out the Gilmore Car Museum's website or visit them on Facebook for more info.
