This Ford was purchased new by Genero Forte at the Vincent Montone dealership in Hazleton, Pennsylvania on March
21st, 1959, and it remained in the original owner's family until 2014. The car was always stored indoors, and has
covered just 30,333 miles since new. It is in remarkable original condition, and retains 60% of the factory
applied paint, as well as the original seat covers, door panels, carpeting, and floor mat. The interior surfaces
show minimal wear, constant with the miles, and the entire car feels like a well maintained two year old
automobile. All of the switches, windows, and latches feel solid, with almost no play or wear. The steering wheel
retains it's original white paint, with a few spots just beginning to wear through after 30,000 miles. I have
inspected this car thoroughly, and every part of it confirms the low mileage and excellent care it has received
since day one. The floors and trunk are solid, and still retain their original paint under the carpeting and trunk
mat. The door panels are in superb condition, with virtually no wear on the armrests, and no warping on the
panels. All of the windows crank up and down smoothly, and the side glass and windshield are original with the
Ford scripts. The weatherstripping is all original, and is still soft, retained by the factory brush-on glue. The
top well is excellent, along with the original top boot (not shown in the pictures, but included with purchase).
The power top works very well, with no known leaks in the hydraulics. All of the lights are functional, and the
horn and wipers both work. The heater works well, along with the original six tube AM radio. This car is equipped
with the desirable four barrel Thunderbird 352 V8, which was the largest engine available in the Galaxie for 1959.
It also has an automatic transmission, but manual steering and brakes. This car was stored for many years, and
returned to the road in 2007 by the original owner's family. The engine was completely rebuilt at this time, and
receipts for the machine work and installation go with the car

FL man fatally shot after urging driver not to do donuts in a Mustang

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 16:00:00 EST

Bradley Holt (pictured), the older half-brother of University of South Florida freshman quarterback Quinton Flowers, was killed in a random act of violence last week.
The 24-year-old Holt was throwing a football around with local kids in Allapattah, a neighborhood in Miami, when a yellow Mustang showed up and started doing donuts in the street. Holt, worried about kids playing in front his apartment complex, walked over to the driver and asked him why he was "driving so crazy with so many kids out here?"
The driver left. Holt's sister said the driver came back "about 15 to 20 minutes later" and fired two shots at Holt. One of them hit Holt in the back of the head, killing him.

Toyota tops Kelley Blue Book's Resale Value Awards

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 18:30:00 EST

Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:

2015 Galpin Ford GTR1

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 11:57:00 EST

Last year in Monterey, we met GTR1 for the first time. Galpin Auto Sports pulled the wraps off its Ford GT-based supercar, powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.4-liter V8 good for a whopping 1,024 horsepower and 739 pound-feet of torque. The thing was totally custom-made and reportedly took some 12,000 man hours to create. And there it sat on the Pebble Beach grass, $1,000,000-plus price tag and all.
This year, the Galpin was back, albeit with one big change. That twin-turbo engine? Gone. In its place, a 5.4-liter V8 with a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger bolted on, delivering an astonishing 1,058 hp and 992 lb-ft of torque on 110-octane fuel. 0-60? 2.9 seconds. Top speed? Somewhere above 225 miles per hour.
"Some things to keep in mind: no stability control, no traction control," were the only warnings given by Galpin's Brandon Boeckmann before taking me on a quick spin in the supercar. And after having my eyes thrown into the back of my skull a few times, laughing hysterically and trying to regain full use of my hearing after my ear drums being bombarded by the apocalyptic roar behind me, Brandon pulled over and said it was my turn, if I was ready to take the wheel.
