1923 Ford T Bucket Rat Rod Project.  This is an Assembled Vehicle and was hand built.  It has not been registered or assigned a VIN, but it's easily done in your home State.  I will include a notarized Bill of Sale.  If you don't feel confident about getting a title, I can do it for you for an additional $400 and a 3 week wait (State Law).

The car features a hand built rectangular steel frame and original 1923 Ford T Bucket steel body, very hard to find.  It is powered with a 1970's 472 Cadillac motor (the high performance version) with a Turbo 400 Transmission - both running when removed from the Cadillac 2 years ago.  There are still a few things left to complete:  the brakes (I will include the pedals and the master cylinder); wiring; plumbing; floorboard; and firewall, as well as a few brackets that need to be made.  I will also include the parts to build a roadster style exhaust, but you will have to cut your own head plate as it is not included (they are available on Ebay for about $35).  It really wouldn't take much to get this car to run, a couple of weekends and a moderately equipped backyard garage.  If you don't feel comfortable but are interested in the car, please feel free to email me for my number and we can discuss a price to make this a running car.  It has everything a good Rat Rod should have with a 375+ hp cadi motor, it will be a monster!  I just have no time and too many projects.

I can assist you in setting up shipping.  I have shipped numerous vehicles all over the States and prices range from $700 to $1200 (note, back to college is a "shipping season" where rates can be a little lower).  You can also pickup yourself, I will allow time for travel arrangements within reason and upon full payment.

Please email with any questions.

Ford won't be releasing GT500 lap times for the 'Ring, or any other car

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 11:29:00 EST

Trucks have towing capacity, EVs have driving range and performance cars have Nürburgring lap times. What do all three have in common? They should all be taken with a grain of salt. Currently, there is no sanctioned way to record lap times or verify production-spec cars - a lesson we recently learned with the 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo - and until there is a way to do so (and there probably never will be), we'll never officially know the actual time it took for Ford to lap the 'Ring with its ultra-powerful Shelby GT500.
After posting a Ford-made video of a 2013 GT500 running around the 'Ring, the guys over at (an enthusiasts forum not affiliated with Ford or SVT) wanted more answers. They got in touch with Ford's Global Performance Vehicle Chief Engineer Jamal Hameedi, who said until there is a way to verify the times and inspect the cars, Ford will not get involved with lap-time wars. In the email, Hameedi pointed out that the 'Ring is a useful tool in that it allows a wide spectrum of track conditions, but until there is a governed way to record times, there is no way to accurately compare cars head-to-head.
And as much as some may not like it, Hameedi speaks the truth. It really isn't possible to compare times from one car to another, unless those cars were lapping the same track at the same time with the same driver. Not that any of this means there won't be continuous wars by fans and manufacturers alike... in other words, feel free to voice your opinions in the Comments below.

Jay Leno's Garage goes eco with Ricardo HyBoost

Mon, 17 Mar 2014 19:19:00 EST

"Now before you turn away, this is not another boring hybrid car thing..." Despite the slightly defensive introduction from Jay, the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage is actually pretty fascinating. The Ricardo HyBoost is a 2009 Ford Focus that has had a 1.1-liter engine swapped in for the stock 2.0-liter four. That might not get you performance enthusiasts out there fired up, until, that is, you hear that the 1.1L is also fed by both a turbocharger and an electrically driven supercharger for an instant-on "torque-fill" effect. Sounds about right, considering that Ricardo engineering is part of the genius behind the McLaren P1.
Perhaps most exciting of all, the Ricardo folks say that the package should run somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,100. A sort of performance-hybrid that makes sense for the frugal driver and the enthusiast one, then. There's a lot more to the HyBoost, all of which can be seen in the video below.

Curtain officially comes down on Mercury as dealers remove signage

Mon, 03 Jan 2011 09:32:00 EST

The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.
