Up for sale is my dads 1930 model A four door .It was restored back in 1975 with having a complete frame off done. The inside of the car was done by my mom and paint and body work by my dad.The car runs good and drives good I put on around 500 miles back in 2008 but has been sitting in the Garage since .So this is why it is up for sale.I do know that the blind back was limited to the first couple of months in 1930 . It retains all it oraginal parts except for a leak less water pump. It will need a set of tires and most likely a battery . I just got it running this past week put some fresh gas and changed the oil and charged the battery and it fired up after cranking a litte. The radiator was taken out in 2007 and boiled and checked and when this was done new hoses and the new water pump put on. There are some chips in the paint and some dings and back pass fender is bent and ding above the rear window. So if looking for a nice car to just drive or a good canidate to restore this would be perfict .It also comes with five extra rims with tires . The ones on the car hold air but are dry rotted but they have tubes . My dad did belong to the IL restores club and retored with all the correct parts not any repop parts like they have now . So if have any questions please emai me firstname.lastname@example.org . Also the horn on the light bar on the pass side does not go with car it is for my 29.

As difficult as it is to write this, I was actually excited about the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid. With the beautiful looks of the newest midsize fighter from Ford and a fuel economy estimate capable of shaming even the stalwart Camry Hybrid, the battery-augmented four-door seemed like a recipe for unabashed success. But appearances love nothing more than swapping our boundless enthusiasm for cold platters of disappointment. The 2013 Fusion Hybrid gets hobbled right out of the gate with a lofty price tag, and real-world driving keeps the sedan from even approaching those EPA figures.
With so many excellent midsize hybrids on the market, is there any reason to consider the newest Fusion Hybrid? Are sharp aesthetics, a well-executed interior and capable driving dynamics enough to overcome the machine's shortfalls? Not from where I'm standing.
Ford showcased more than a dozen customized 2015 Mustangs at its sprawling 20,000-square foot display this week at the Las Vegas Convention Center as the iconic pony car's 50th anniversary celebration continued at the SEMA Show.
While Mustangs are always a hot commodity at SEMA, the new generation brought increased attention from the aftermarket, as builders like Galpin Auto Sports, Richard Petty's Garage and Vaughn Gittin Jr. offered their takes on the new 'Stang.
The extensive display included a range of Mustangs from mild to wild, with everything from a 600-plus horsepower King Cobra pictured at the top, to paint-and-wheel packages. The new regal Cobra, which we spied early in our SEMA adventure this year, may not be the replacement for the Cobra Jet as we speculated, but it does seem to point the way forward for the next iteration of a supreme Ford dragster. Fat drag slicks out back make it's reason for being abundantly clear, and for tells us that modded car is good for a 10.97-second quarter-mile run.
Way back in August, we showed you a Ford concept for the Australian market called the Everest. Now, we can show you that work on the new Ranger-based SUV is well under way.
At this stage, it's still quite clearly a mule (note the misalignment of the front and rear doors), wearing the Ranger's front end and the rump of Ford's overseas Territory crossover. The wheelbase is shorter than a Ranger, according to our spy photographers, which strikes us as somewhat odd for a more passenger-oriented vehicle. Disc brakes should be fitted at all four corners, while the new SUV, which will almost certainly wear the Everest name, should sport a new rear suspension.
In terms of looks, we're expecting the Everest Concept to inform the appearance of the production model. Naturally, there will also be some interior tweaks, particularly around the dashboard, which is covered in these photos.
