Up for auction is a 1972 Ford Galaxie LTD convertible. Red exterior, red interior, black top. Runs and drives, a little bit rough. New alternator, fuel pump, new electronic ignition system including distributor and ignition coil. Also put new valve cover gaskets, oil pan gasket, rear main seal, and trans pan gasket. Radiator was replaced about 2 years ago, and brakes about 3. Cosmetically the car could use a little work, original paint with scratches. Passenger side window regulator is broken and it won't go up. The pistons for the convertible top have a small leak and the cylinder needs to be topped off every once in a while. Has a couple small rips in it. When this car is washed and waxed and the sun is out, it is a real head turner. Please understand that this is in no way a new car, it is 40+ years old and will need work if you want it to run 100%. I used this specifically as a cruiser around town in the summer. I just moved back home and am in the process of getting rid of all my projects, this being one of my last because I do love this car so much. You will too.
Vehicle must be picked up within 4 days of the end of the auction. There will be a storage fee for anything past that that has not been discussed.
Thanks for looking!!

This year's annual Eyes on Design awards were presented at the end of press days for the Detroit Auto Show on Tuesday. Given out for the best production and concept car designs that debuted at the show, and voted on by an esteemed panel of actual car designers, this year's award for best production vehicle design went to the 2014 Cadillac ELR. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, which was the show favorite among Autoblog editors, apparently did not impress the Eyes on Design judges enough with its all-new vent-festooned design.
The award for best concept design was actually split as a tie among the Nissan Resonance and Ford Atlas concepts. Last year's winners were the 2013 Ford Fusion and the Lexus LF-LC concept.
The Eyes on Design organization also presented a new honor this year called the Catalyst Award to Bob Lutz, former Vice Chairman of General Motors. Lutz is reported to have given a defense of design in his acceptance speech, arguing that advancements in quality across the industry as a whole have made good design a key differentiator for buyers.
A problem with the fuel line on certain examples of the Ford Edge has prompted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue a recall. The issue revolves around the metal housing on the fuel line pulse damper, which was apparently improperly manufactured in the first place and is prone to crack in certain circumstances, leading to a fuel leak. And as we all know, a fuel leak is not a good thing.
The problem affects model year 2012 and 2013 Edge crossovers equipped with the 2.0-liter engine and manufactured between September 2, 2010 and April 25, 2013 - a total of 27,933 units. Although the Lincoln MKX is closely related to the Edge, since it isn't offered with the same engine (to which the problem is related), the recall does not include the premium-badged version. See the recall notice below for further details.
We're of the mind that each and every dyno should come with Murphy's Law painted in big, visible letters down the side. For every ten successful dyno runs out there, it seems there's one where events to horribly wrong. Take, for example, the video below. The clip shows what happens when a Ford Shelby GT500 and a mobile dyno have a bit of a disagreement at the Performance Expo 24 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. We won't spoil the results for you, but we will say there's some substantial carnage involved.
It's unclear just how much damage ensues from the dust up or whether anyone was harmed in the incident, but from the looks of things, everyone made it out without serious injury. If only we could say the same for the machines involved. Check out the video below.
