In the year 1978, Harry J. Shay established the Model A and Model T Motor Car Reproduction Corporation, with the goal of reincarnating the early Ford models for procurement in modern times. In 1980, the name of the company was changed to Shay Motors. Shay was given the authority to reproduce the Model A in limited number. The Model A cars were true to their heritage and hence lacked some of the modern features. They were sold through Ford dealerships. The Super Deluxe Roadster was found to be the most popular. The Model A has a 4 cylinder, 140.3 cubic inch engine that is located in the front. The car is a rear wheel drive. It is equipped with a 4-gear manual transmission. In 1983, Camelot Motors purchased the patents, tools and equipments of Shay Corporation and started producing the Model A replicas.

This woman owns the first Ford Mustang sold in the US

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 11:29:00 EST

As Ford celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang with the unveiling of the all-new sixth-gen design, one Chicago women can lay claim to a piece of Mustang history. According to CBS Chicago, Gail Wise was the first person in the US to buy a Mustang in 1964, and she did so two days before the car was even unveiled to the public.
Wise, then a 22-year-old teacher, went into the Chicago Ford dealership wanting to buy a convertible, and a salesperson ushered her over to car covered by a tarp. That car was a baby blue Mustang convertible, which she still owns today - along with the documentation. After sitting for almost 30 years and undergoing a full restoration, the car now looks to be in original condition. The report says that this $3,400 purchase could be worth anywhere between $100,000 and $250,000. While this worked out well for Mrs. Wise, we wouldn't recommend anyone going into a dark, back room of a dealership hoping to get a jump on the purchase of a 2015 Mustang.

Ford adds 850 jobs to build 2015 F-150

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 11:01:00 EST

Pickup trucks tend not to advance at quite the same pace as the rest of the industry. That's what makes the new Ford F-150 so remarkable, jettisoning its old steel construction in favor of aluminum. It's a game changer that Ford is betting big on, and in anticipation of surging demand, the Blue Oval automaker is adding 850 new jobs to put the thing together.
Those 850 new employees will be centered at Ford's Rouge complex in Michigan - with 300 at Dearborn Stamping, 50 more at Dearborn Diversified and 500 at the Dearborn Truck facility, the latter of which has already kicked off what Ford describes as "the largest manufacturing transformation in decades." Old manufacturing equipment is being replaced with the latest technologies, and even the Ford Rouge Factory Tour is undergoing a complete overhaul.
The new jobs come as part of the commitments Ford made to the UAW in 2011 to create 12,000 hourly jobs in the United States by 2015 - a number which Ford has already exceeded at 14,000. Over 4,000 of those are centered in southeastern Michigan.

Which is more fuel efficient, driving with a pickup's tailgate up or down?

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 19:57:00 EST

Thanks to the smoke wand in the wind tunnel, you can actually see the difference in our video.
Should you drive with your pickup truck's tailgate up or down? It's an age-old controversy that's divided drivers for decades. Traditionalists will swear you should leave the tailgate down. Makes sense, right? It would seem to let the air flow more cleanly over the body and through the bed. But there's also a school of thought that argues trucks are designed to look and operate in a specific manner, and modern design techniques can help channel the airflow properly. So don't mess with all of that: Leave the tailgate up.
