Up for auction is a just completed, turn key professionally built 1923 Model T Bucket. It is very fast, very fun to drive, and handles better than any other I've driven before. It is powered by a new SBC crate 350 engine, 350 turbo transmission with shift kit, and a Ford 8" rear that puts it all to the ground. The entire car has been professionally painted & clear coated including the body and Grill shell, axles and shocks right down to the beautiful gloss black frame it's sitting on. I can't emphasize enough just how well built and ready to go this bucket is. Everything on this car works! All gauges, lights, signals, even a working horn. This is not a half assed backyard build. It has a lot of time and money invested in it and that really shows in person. Below I will list some of the features of this car along with a video link so you can hear it fire off and run for yourself:
-SBC 350 Crate motor
-Comp Cam 454 lift 280 duration
-350 Turbo tranny with shift kit
-Ported & Polished Heads
-Edelbrock Performer 2101 Intake

-I reserve the right to end this auction early as it is also for sale locally.
The last time we saw Tanner Foust at the Nürburgring he was sloshing an SVT Raptor from kerb to kerb. Sticking with Ford but swapping keys, this time the drift champion and Top Gear USA host goes to the opposite end of the manufacturer's tuner garage and plucks a Fiesta ST for 'Ring duty.
The 179-horsepower front-wheel-driver acquits itself well by the end of the video. But be warned, Foust doesn't set a 'Ring time and it's shot like a commercial... because that's what it is. Still, you can enjoy all two minutes and 31 seconds of it below.

Subcompact sales slump, yet again
Oprah Winfrey loves giving away cars. Not only has she given Pontiac G6 sedans and Volkswagen Beetle retro-mobiles to everyone in the audience of her past show, but the other night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! she gave another car away to one lucky audience member, while yelling her now-famous line: "You get a car!"
Although the acting of Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel was obviously staged for this giveaway, the reaction from the woman in the audience was genuine shock as she found out that she had just won a new Ford Fusion Energi. Congrats!
Not to take away from what Oprah and Jimmy pulled off, but our cynical sides have to wonder if there isn't more than just a little coincidence that this giveaway took place on the same day that Ford announced a fuel economy reduction for the C-Max hybrid. You be the judge... Scroll down to watch the short clip from the episode.
