32 Ford Roadster on 2040-cars
Bethpage, New York, United States
- Bethpage, New York 11714
- Mauve leather and Gray Fabric
1932 Ford Street Rod for sale. My dad built it in the early 1990s (probably 1992 or 1993), in Florida. (He was the car guy, and I learned some stuff from him, so these are the details that I know.) Has a 1970s-era Chevy 350 engine, special heads, and an automatic transmission (I know, I know... he chose automatic so my mom could drive it!). Dyno-tested at approx 325hp. I do know it has a special carburetor (not sure of brand), and I also have a spare carb and alternator too. Of course, the exterior is black. Look closely at the pinstriping down the side-- it's a copy of one of my father's EKG printouts from his doctor !! The interior is mauve and gray. The doors open by pressing on a switch under the dash on the driver's side. The hard top lifts off easily, after pulling out a few pins/cotterpins. Steering column and bucket seats are from a early '80s GM vehicle. Up until late 2012, the car was in Florida, and was babied by my father. I don't think it's ever been driven in rain (though it does have a small driver side wiper). I can tell you that it is an absolute BLAST to drive. Super fast. Can light the tires up without breaking a sweat! My dad did all the maintenance, but since I've had it, I've had my mechanic take care of it-- he's done the following: new plugs, battery, master cylinder and rear brake cylinders.
Price: $27,500 negotiable

Regardless of what you think of his skill as a racer, Ken Block is an expert showman. At this point, he has a career of showing up around the world to do vehicular stunts, and he's still able to go racing as well. It's a pretty sweet niche to carve out. Recently, Block was in Barbados to participate in Top Gear Live and the first event of the Global Rallycross Championship season, and Ford Racing produced a short video to show off his exploits.

It looked like a great show. Block got to race Lewis Hamilton in a Mercedes-Benz Formula One car and had a very weird crash during a Rallycross race that put his Ford Fiesta on its roof. Top Gear also released an extended look at Block and Hamilton's spectacle with the two of them expertly sliding around. Scroll down to watch the videos and get a taste of Block's tropical racing adventure.
Whether fitted with soft or hard folding lids, today's droptops are better than ever for year-round motoring. Advancements in power top mechanisms, sealing, aerodynamics, structural rigidity, rollover safety and creature comforts like heated and cooled seats mean that modern convertibles are more versatile and better to drive than ever before. Yet the segment's sales took a dive during the recession and haven't come back, Automotive News reports.

Part of that is because automakers are looking at today's more sensible buyers and simply not developing as many new models, and that lack of fresh iron is curbing sales. AN cites R.L. Polk data which notes that only about one percent of new vehicles registered in the US last year had tops that folded. Back in 2009, it was 1.4 percent, and it was 2 percent in 2006. All-in, some 151,636 convertibles were registered in 2012. That's more units more than were registered in each of the past three years, but the market has also grown as the economy has picked up speed, and as a percentage of new vehicles purchased, convertible sales are lagging.
Thus far in 2013, the Ford Mustang is America's top-selling convertible, with 6,421 units registered through the end of April, followed by its rival, the Chevrolet Camaro, at 4,751 units. The Volkswagen Beetle isn't far behind, with 4,305, but from that point, it's a steep drop off to the fourth-place Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and its 2,380 sales.
It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
