Super Rare 1964 Country Squire Highly Optioned 6 Passenger Wagon in Suberb rust free unrestored condition. Options include T-Bird 390, A/C, Roof Rack, Power Stearing and brakes and working electric rear window. If you want the ultimate Surfwagon that you can drive to the beach and leave without body guards , this is it!!!!.  Car was just driven on a 100 mile trip at 70 miles per hour without any issues. This is a beautiful unrestored rust free wagon with original trim and interior that is a survivor and a wonderfully fun driver. We bought this wagon two years ago with the idea to restore and have yet to start any major work. Recent work ( $2500.00) includes  freshenening the engine compartment, along with carb rebuild, new valve cover gaskets, electric fuel pump, reconditioned gas tank, distributor, plugs, points wires and suspension gone through. The car starts and drives beautifully and is NOW solid and tight.  This 64 Country Squire has the rare 390 CI Upgrade Thunderbird Engine Option with 300 HP which does not smoke or tick.  The front suspension has been rebuilt and exhaust is new front to back. The car has had one driver quality repaint years ago but the door jambs are original and NOT all covered in overspray and thick paint as most old wagons are, and the woodgrain has been replaced at some point with after market panelling. The airconditioning is not connected but is all in tack. The rear tailgate window works perfectly. The front seat cover needs replacing and a new after market cover in the same pattern is included and the dash has two cracks and is covered with a dash pad . The head liner is great. Most people dont show you the drivers area because they are hiding the worn out seat but the replacement cover will fix the problem. The rear seats are great. This is a six passenger wagon. The exhaust has straight pipes and has a performance rumble when running. The rear tires are great, front will need replacing eventually. Door jambs and doors are 100% solid as is the  body and undercarriage. Chrome is original and decent, These Country Squires are becoming impossible to find but even more so at this price, dont miss out  all questions will be answered  Car is 10 minutes from Toronto Pearson Airport. Thanks Greg

NHTSA closes rollaway investigation into 1.56M Ford SUVs

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 14:17:00 EST

It's taken four years of study, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has finally closed the books on its investigation into rollaway accusations surrounding 1.56-million Ford SUV models.
The probe, which centered on the 2002-2005 Ford Explorer, 2002-2005 Mercury Mountaineer and 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviator, ends without the federal agency calling for a recall. According to The Detroit News, the investigation was closed due to a "low number of complaints" - NHTSA documented 180 such complaints that resulted in 14 crashes and six minor injuries, but the number of incidents have been slowing. The suspected defect rate for the trucks' automatic transmissions was found to be 4.4 per 100,000 units, and the brake-shift interlock mechanism failure rate was judged to be even lower at 3.4 per 100k.

Ford Fiesta rally car warms up in Sweden

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 15:00:00 EST

Rallycross is seeing a sudden surge in popularity with two series bringing the racing to the US and Europe. The Ford OMSE team is competing in both championships this season, and it saw no reason not to hold practice with a highly modified Fiesta in the snow of Northern Sweden. It brought together Andreas Bakkerud from the European-focused FIA World Rallycross Championship and Patrik Sandell from the North American-focused Global Rallycross series for some training and fun. They certainly appear to be enjoying themselves, too, with some lovely pirouettes in the powder.
If you're unfamiliar with rallycross, the discipline combines the best of rallying and circuit racing. Drivers (with no co-drivers) race rally cars over a circuit that generally mixes dirt and asphalt, and unlike traditional rallying, multiple cars compete side-by-side at once. Even better, it's often a very two-fisted form of motorsports with lots of car-to-car contact. Global Rallycross and World Rallycross will both kick off their seasons in May. With spring on the way, scroll down to watch the Fiesta kick up some of the last snow drifts of the year.

KBB 2013 Brand Image Awards has some obvious and oddball winners

Sat, 30 Mar 2013 08:58:00 EST

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 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.
