Just finished, multi year rotisserie restoration on a solid Boss 302. This car was taken down to the unibody, media
blasted and restored to the level you see pictured. Floors are original to the car, only major sheet metal that to
my knowledge is not original to the car is the passenger side quarter panel and perhaps the battery inner fender
panel. Doors are original ford, as is deck lid and hood. Car is highly detailed under hood and under carriage. I
have lots of photo's of this car so is you are looking for a specific photo please ask.
Drivetrain while not original to this Boss is assembly line Boss 302 components. The partial vin on the block is
0F189800, I asked about this vin on the Boss forum and found it is a legitimate Boss vin from a vehicle that was
scraped. The trans is the correct RUG tag intact as a wide ratio four speed. Rear is an open 3:50 9 inch
differential. Before we purchased this car some 8 years ago the engine was rebuilt buy the previous owner, starts
right up no unusual noises and it runs cool, it does have a bit of a larger cam installed but it is not
problematic. Car has correct remanufactured distributor, with correct vacuum chamber, and the correct dated Holley
carburetor, correct fuel pump, complete smog system with vanes removed from air pump to make it non functional,
correct snorkel with original base. The rev limiter is a gutted voltage regulator housing with new harness. Correct
Autolite alternator too! This car still is using an assembly line Y pipe!!
Inside is a clean tach dash instrument cluster, functional up graded clock. Both dash panels were rechromed and
detailed, head liner is new, AM radio plays load and clear. Restored console assembly and restored Bill Herndon
steering wheel (horns work). New carpet and door panels. New reproduction dash panel, kick panels, sail panels,
sail panel lamps etc. As I mentioned the fuel gauge is intermittent and if possible I will try to have this sorted
out for the new owner.
Exterior had all the stainless polished and buffed, new bumpers, urethane base clear Grabber Orange paint with new
reflective stripes. All exterior lighting working. Rebuilt brake booster and master cylinder, rebuilt proportioning
valve and all new brake and fuel lines, new rotors, rebuilt calipers, new pads etc. etc. etc. New Magnum 500 wheels
with new Firestone Wide Oval bias ply tires. New front windshield, all other glass is Ford tinted.
This car was not a rusty car, it was and is extremely solid making it a great candidate for the restoration it
received. It is increasing difficult to turn out an authentic Boss restoration as most good used original parts are
long gone and what little is left in NOS service parts are priced to the heavens. So if you value a car that has
almost all Ford sheet metal and sports very good fit and body lines then take a long look at this car and you will
realize the dollars invested to bring a car to this level. I see many Boss 302's for sale that lack the hard to get
parts ( like the reverse lock out rod, carburetor, distributor, exhaust manifolds) and are past rust buckets and
are loaded with Chinese sheet metal sporting the poor fit and finish being advertised for much more than this cars

VW going turbo-only in 3 to 4 years

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 14:31:00 EST

This really was a matter of when, rather than if. Volkswagen will apparently be the first manufacturer to phase out naturally aspirated engines in favor of turbocharging its full slate. VW is kind of responsible for ushering in this push towards small-displacement, turbocharged engines that's taken the industry by storm. When it dropped its direct-injection, 2.0-liter turbo in the 2005 GTI it demonstrated that strapping an iron long to an engine can enhance the powertrain as a whole. VW made fuel economy gains, while also giving a linear, non-laggy turbo experience that it has replicated, model-after-model, to this day.
Speaking with The Detroit News, Volkswagen's executive Vice President of Group Quality, Marc Trahan, told the paper that, "We only have one normally aspirated gas engine, and when we go to the next generation vehicle that it's in, it will be replaced. So three, four years maximum."
Really, it's hard to get teary-eyed about either of these engines going away. VW has access to smaller powerplants that could easily match the performance of the 2.5 five-cylinder and the 3.6 V6, while gobbling up less fuel and providing a better driving experience. What we are sad about is that a similar statement about the extinction of NA engines came from the Vice President of Powertrain Engineering at Ford, Joe Bakaj. We'd certainly get teary-eyed over a world without Ford's excellent 5.0-liter V8.

Ford builds USAF Thunderbirds Edition Mustang for charity

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 13:29:00 EST

Each year since 2008, Ford has created a one-off Mustang to celebrate military aviation, and the cars have been auctioned off at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Gathering of Eagles charity event to raise money to inspire the next generation of aviators. This year's charity car is the 2014 Ford Mustang GT US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition, which also helps celebrate 60 years of Thunderbirds air show excellence.
Of all the EAA charity cars, this Thunderbirds Edition is the most in depth. Painted to match the F-16 Tomcat fighter jets used by Thunderbirds, this Mustang also gets a widebody kit and 22-inch Forgiato wheels to go with the cockpit's Recaro bucket seats, rear-seat delete and modified navigation screen and gauge cluster. Even the Mustang's projector puddle lights have been changed to show an aircraft silhouette - rather than the Mustang's galloping horse logo - when the doors are open.
Themes for previous EAA charity cars include the Blue Angels, SR-71 Blackbird and the Red Tails as well as the F-22 Raptor-inspired AV8R and AV-X10 "Dearborn Doll" models. Scroll down for the press release for the 2014 Ford Mustang GT US Air Force Thunderbirds Edition, and be sure to check out our galleries for all six aviation-themed Mustangs.

Ford Fusion production scaled back just 3 months after it was accelerated

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 16:59:00 EST

Three months after kicking off production of the Ford Fusion at its Flat Rock, MI factory, Ford Motor Company is taking steps to trim output in the face of heavily discounted competition from Toyota and a growing supply of vehicles.
The addition of Fusion production in Flat Rock - which also builds the Mustang - was meant to be what pushed the handsome mid-sizer past its arch-nemesis, the Toyota Camry. An extra facility building Fusions was also meant to curb the growing demand for Ford's highly profitable sedan.
But with word that Flat Rock would take "approximately" one extra week off for the holidays combined with an 88-day supply of Fusions - reportedly due in no small part to what Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas called "aggressive discounting of the Camry" - some analysts are now beginning to wonder if Ford may have overextended itself by adding a second Fusion facility to the mix.
