Wally, a long time family friend, has decided that it is time for his beloved Model A to have a new home! This is your opportunity to own an absolute American legend. An older but still good restoration, this car is ready for a parade, a park or a Sunday drive now and offers an absolutely perfect platform for an easy top of the show restoration when you are ready. Wally bought the coupe in '68 from the original owner shown on the bill of sale photo. It was that gentleman's daily driver for nearly 40 years right up to the day he sold it. It was restored during the 70s and has been repainted in the last ten years. This Coupe has been used in many parades by a MN state representative. The car starts immediately, runs, drives and stops just fine. The rubber is older but in good shape, there are no major engine or driveline leaks and it does not overheat. Unlike many of the Model A's that are for sale this car is KNOWN TO BE ROADWORTHY and recently completed a 60 mile day trip to church and the cabin without a problem. This is truly a car to be enjoyed and driven as it is right now. If you have been looking for a Model A to own and drive proudly or an exceptional platform for a perfect restoration here is your chance. The car is located approx 150 miles north of Minneapolis in the Brainerd Lakes area. Good luck bidding everyone, there is a reserve but it is very very reasonable. I have no doubt this car is going to sell! I will be happy to answer any questions from serious buyers but give me a little time, it is not my car so I have to ask and relay the info. I also have a short raw video clip of the car running and driving that I would be happy to email you. Thanks for looking everyone and Happy Bidding!!!!

16 of the 23 new launches will be for the North American market.
2014 is shaping up to be a big year for Ford Motor Company, as it's announced an onslaught of 23 new global product launches which will help create 5,000 new jobs in the US. As part of the new product push, three more manufacturing plants will be opened.
Between slow sales and a hefty price drop for its nearest rival, the Ford Focus Electric may be looking at a pretty substantial price cut. The Detroit News is reporting that Ford will drop the price of the all-electric by about $4,000 to $35,200 to be more competitive with the Nissan Leaf, which received a big price cut for 2013 down to $28,800.
Ford has already admitted to having low expectations for the car's sales and massive rebates were reported earlier in the year, but there is still no official word from Ford on this matter. The company's consumer site still lists the 2014 model's starting price as $39,200. In addition to the Leaf, the Focus Electric will also have to deal with the lower prices of smaller EVs including the Honda Fit EV, Fiat 500e and the Chevrolet Spark EV.
J Mays, head of design at Ford, may be retiring from the company after 16 years, but not before showing the world his swan song: the 2015 Mustang. Ford officially revealed its new coupe and convertible to the public at events around the world on Thursday, including a live unveiling on ABC's Good Morning America, and Mays was in attendance at the automaker's home event in Dearborn, MI, which is where we caught up with him for a few words about his new baby.
"It's a joy" to design the Mustang, Mays told Autoblog, adding that this sixth-generation coupe is his "favorite design so far." Of course, the 2015 model takes cues from all of the generations that came before it, but Mays said it was important to edit down the specific elements from previous models, leaving just enough off to let the customer "participate and fill in the blanks."
"If it doesn't sell itself, you probably aren't a Mustang fan."
