This Festiva is being sold for PARTING OUT because of rust issues.

The Festiva engine is a Mazda B series noninterference engine, (if the timing belt breaks, no harm is done to the engine).

It has 145,686 miles.

Has an automatic transmission which we never had issues with.  Since we owned it, we did have the fluid and filter changed in it.

We kept the oil changed every 3,000 miles

Gets approximately 35 miles per gallon.

Has A/C but we never got around to fixing it.

It has the original back compartment cover.

The tires are all good and still inflated, not flat.

All the locks work.

No cracks in windows.

We changed the calipers and rotors, but it has been sitting for 3 years.

The engine needs valve cover gaskets, they are oily.

The struts and springs on front are bad, axles possibly are bad also.

There is rust issues and mold on the inside.

Why we are selling it......

We had  this Festiva on the road for 6 years, with no mechanical issues.   But, something
developed possibly, electrical we couldn't seem to run out and find.  It got so that it would start and run fine, and then quit and would not start back up.  Our garage mechanics could not fine the issue.

We changed the air filter, pcv valve, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel filter, fuel pump, but the problem still persisted.  We now suspect that possibly the issue might be in the ignition control module in the distributor.  

After towing it to several mechanics, we just gave up and sadly one of the windows got left open without us knowing it and it got wet inside and got moldy.  We open the hatch to let it air out as much as possible and it seems to smell a bit better.

It does have a new battery but it needs a slow trickle charger to bring it back up.

We kept the car until now to take parts of it to keep our aspire on the road, but now we found another aspire to drive and will use the old aspire now for parts if we have to, so this needs to go and we also had to buy another car to which we are making payments on to basically replace this car.

This car is very rusty, especially underneath, but the engine, transmission etc are all good.

It isn't roadworthy, so you will have to bring a hauler to haul it off, even if it was up and running, it's too rusty underneath to trust out driving now.

Will load up more photos of under the hood later when I get the chance to take them.

Martini Mustang is a 'what if moment' gone right

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 19:31:00 EST

Feast your eyes on a masterpiece. This is Steve Strope's Ford Mustang in the classic fastback bodystyle, and as you'll notice, it sports the signature colors of Martini Racing, a livery that's as legendary as any Gulf Racing-styled car. But the red, white and blues of the Martini stripe down this Mustang's middle tell only a very small part of the story, in the latest video from Petrolicious.
What would you guess is under the hood? A 289-cubic-inch V8? Maybe a 302, or some absurd Ford crate engine? Maybe Strope went all Tokyo Drift - he's actually responsible for the "Hammer" Plymouth Satellite driven by Vin Diesel at the end of the movie - and found an RB26DETT to drop into the pony car? You'd be wrong on all counts.
This mad, mad man somehow finagled a Ford-Lotus engine from a 1966 Indianapolis 500 car into the Mustang's engine bay. Yes, a Mustang with an engine designed for a 160-mile-per-hour, open-wheel racecar. That's like someone in 40 years dropping McLaren's 2.4-liter V8 from the MP4-28 into a Scion FR-S. It'd just make a monster.

Ford debuts Fusion NASCAR racer that edges closer to stock [w/video]

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 17:32:00 EST

The sixth-generation NASCAR Sprint Cup racecar, which will make its competition debut at the 2013 Daytona 500 this weekend, marks the closest thing to a "stock car" that the sport has seen in more than 20 years. No longer using just stickers to distinguish the different brands, the image above shows the lengths NASCAR and automakers went in order to create a racecar design that more closely resembles the individual cars they represent.
Ford, one of the more open and vocal OEMs regarding the Gen6 car's development, is giving us a closer look at its racing version of the Fusion with a pretty revealing side-by-side comparison with last years' racer (click above for an expanded view). Aside from the more realistic front end and production-like body lines, the overall shape, dimensions and proportions have also been designed to give the racecar a more stock appearance. Most of the new racer was designed by the Ford Design Center, which the automaker says was the first time it has been so involved in the design process since the 1960s. Of course, one area the Sprint Cup Fusion really differs from the production Fusion is its Ford Racing 5.8-liter V8 producing around 850 hp. Can you say Fusion SVT?
Scroll down for a quick video from Ford Racing showing a production Fusion morph into a Cup car.

Ford reports 58% drop in Q2 profits on European losses

Wed, 25 Jul 2012 10:58:00 EST

Ford Motor Company announced Wednesday that it has posted a $1 billion profit for the second quarter of 2012. That sounds like good news for the Blue Oval, until you take into account that Ford posted a $2.4 billion profit for Q2 a year ago. That is a substantial 58 percent loss.
Ford also posted $465 million in international losses, with $404 million of those losses coming directly from Europe. The automaker also increased its European loss projections to $1 billion for 2012, due in large part to the economic crisis overseas, which has resulted in increased unemployment and decreased consumer confidence.
