 This is my 2004 Ford Freestar SEL with 112,700 mile on it. The exterior is Arizona Beige Metallic and the interior has Pebble cloth seating. The car is running great and it's been a very reliable vehicle. With the 4.2 engine it has lots of power if you want to tow, carry heavy loads or quick entry onto highways. Upgraded features are a Pioneer AVIC F-700BT in-dash Audio, hands-free Phone, backup camera, and Navigation system, a heavy duty Class 3 hitch. The backup camera is brand new. The Pioneer also has a mini phone jack input on front. and RCA jack for audio/video in back. External seat back displays, can be added. The Pioneer plays DVDs/CD etc and has a memory card slot for additional media playing. There is a keyless entry pad on the drivers door and I have two keys and remotes.
The hitch was installed new but never used to tow anything. It is rated for 3500 lbs trailer weight and 350 lbs tongue weight. It was only used for a hitch bike rack. The two center sliding doors are motor powered and automatically open/close with a button or the key remote. There is a backup sensor alarm. and it has a low tire pressure warning system.  All tire are good and worn evenly, it has roof racks that are great for canoe/kayak carrying.  I took it to the FORD dealer three weeks ago and they installed a new transmission torque converter and rear seat bracket latches under a recall. I have generally serviced and maintain my own vehicles and important service performed is 5/14, new passenger window motor, 6/13/13 fuel filter and new coil pack, new driver rear brake caliper, new front and rear brake pads, bleed all brake lines and new brake fluid, new air filter, injectors cleaned, 9/15/12 new passenger rear brake caliper. 12/10/11 93,792 miles complete tune up, plugs, wires and 5/11 new serpentine belt, new power steering pump,, new idler pulley, new camshaft syncronizer, and 7/30/11 new rear wheel hubs and speed sensors replaced.  A new battery was installed last month. Routine oil, filters, transmission maintenance service has been done. Overall this Freestar has needed minimal service.
I'm also including a free new set of front wheel hubs and sensors that I did not get around to installing. The front hubs are fine, but since I already changed the rears, I wanted to also do the fronts. Any car mechanic can easily install them for you if needed.

The Freestar was used mostly by me in my medical equipment service business. My wife drove it for the last couple of years. We don't have young kids or animals, so the inside and seats are in good shape, very clean. The rear seat folds into a rear recess and the two captains chairs fold forward or completely remove making a lot of cargo space with a flat floor. The Pioneer in-dash navigation/phone and audio sounds great and a microphone is mounted on top of the steering wheel column for easy to use, clear voice hands-free phone through Bluetooth.

Other than average use wear, the more obvious things to point out are the plastic pull handle on the rear seat is broken, The front two 12 volt power receptacles don't work and are broken inside. Replacement receptacles can be found on-line for about $10. and the center bottom base where they are mounted comes out with a couple of screws. I had an IPHONE years ago and a cable is routed to the top dash but I don't know if this cable works any more as I have not had an IPHONE for about five years. If needed,  this cable is $30.  There are a couple of rust spot areas as shown in the photos. I was going to grind, patch and repaint these areas but just don't have the time to do it, there is a crack in the lower driver side bumper/fog light. there is a barely visible dent in the driver side fender, which I hand pushed back out and is pretty close (no pain damage).  There is a 1/2" rock ding in the windshield. It's been there for five years and has not extended further. There is a long scratch on the passanger side door plastic moulding. There is some flaking of the clearcoat paint topcoat on the top of one of the sliding doors. Recently a trac off lamp lights intermittently, I search on-line and the problem is related to some loose or oxidized connectors , I cleaned these and it seems to have stopped but, if needed, the other solution is a replacing a $30. pressure sensor. I think I got everything but there could be others but I do try to be as honest as I can.

This would be a great/reliable vehicle for a small business or a great family van. It's been a great vehicle for us.

This unique '64 Mustang was Edsel Ford II's first car

Thu, 02 Jan 2014 19:40:00 EST

You probably had the same dream when you were a teenager. Your sixteenth birthday is coming up, or Christmas, or maybe both, and all you want is a muscle car to call your own. That dream has come true for some, and one of them was none other than Edsel Ford II.
Henry Ford's great grandson turned 16 on December 27, 1964 - two days after Christmas and eight months after the original Mustang went on sale. And that's just what was waiting for him in the driveway, courtesy of his father (and reigning chief executive) Henry Ford II.
The specially-prepared pony car had a pearlescent cream paintjob with narrow blue racing stripes, functional hood scoop, chrome trim, Euro-spec fender-mounted mirrors, a blue leather and aluminum interior, a monogrammed fuel cap... and a 289-cubic-inch V8 under the hood.

Nuclear-powered concept cars from the Atomic Age

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 12:31:00 EST

In the 1950s and early 60s, the dawn of nuclear power was supposed to lead to a limitless consumer culture, a world of flying cars and autonomous kitchens all powered by clean energy. In Europe, it offered the then-limping continent a cheap, inexhaustible supply of power after years of rationing and infrastructure damage brought on by two World Wars.
The development of nuclear-powered submarines and ships during the 1940s and 50s led car designers to begin conceptualizing atomic vehicles. Fueled by a consistent reaction, these cars would theoretically produce no harmful byproducts and rarely need to refuel. Combining these vehicles with the new interstate system presented amazing potential for American mobility.
But the fantasy soon faded. There were just too many problems with the realities of nuclear power. For starters, the powerplant would be too small to attain a reaction unless the car contained weapons-grade atomic materials. Doing so would mean every fender-bender could result in a minor nuclear holocaust. Additionally, many of the designers assumed a lightweight shielding material or even forcefields would eventually be invented (they still haven't) to protect passengers from harmful radiation. Analyses of the atomic car concept at the time determined that a 50-ton lead barrier would be necessary to prevent exposure.

Ford adds third shift at F-150 plant to keep up with demand

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 10:31:00 EST

The signs have been very positive for Ford's F-Series line of pickup trucks as of late, and after 24 consecutive months of increasing sales of the best-selling F-150, the automaker has added a third production crew at its Kansas City Assembly Plant that includes 900 new hourly workers to meet demand for the truck. This the first step in Ford's plan to add 2,000 hourly jobs at the plant to help meet demand for its trucks and to begin production of the new Transit van, the automaker says.
Despite some tough new competition, sales of the F-Series are the strongest they've been since 2006, according to Ford. The automaker sold 60,449 F-Series in July, the best sales figure for the mid-summer month since 2006, which also represents a 23 percent increase compared to July 2012. From January to July 2013, sales were up 22 percent compared to the same period last year.
Ford has committed to creating 12,000 hourly jobs by 2015, and with the 900 new employees added to the assembly plant in Missouri, the company says it has completed 75 percent of its goal. Ford has also invested $1.1 billion to retool and expand the Kansas City Assembly Plant to ready it for Transit production. Take a look at the press release below for more job and F-Series sales information.
