1972 Ford Mustang Mach1. Original delivery shows it going to a southern, California dealership. To my knowledge, always a California car and in the same county. Features a 351 Cleveland motor with automatic transmission and a 4 barrel upgraded carburetor that was put in by the previous owner. Engine runs strong, I have never had an issue with it, and well-maintained for long road trips. Has approx. 113,500 original miles. I have had it for a few years and in that time I have replaced; brakes (pads, rear drum brakes, shoes, master cylinder, and more), new ignition switch, belts, hoses, Optima battery, battery cables, voltage regulator, and more. Interior dash was repainted same color (black) a few months ago. Has an aftermarket touchscreen radio that features AM/FM CD, DVD, Bluetooth, Pandora Radio, USB slot, and Auxiliary port. Also has a nice rear-view camera setup so that you can easily back up without worrying about seeing through the rear-window louvers. The backup camera also has a switch so that it can be turned on while in any gear (pretty cool!). Interior is in really nice condition other than the two panels in the rear area that are missing, as stated in the defects section. No windshield wiper setup and horn not setup. Please see photos and ask any questions. Exterior is also in very nice condition. I've tried to show every angle and be very thorough with my details, but at the same time the car is in really nice shape for being over forty years old. As mentioned, paint is about six years old (previous owner painted it) and does have a few spots that can be touched up. This is very similar to original color other than the gloss coat added, as I discovered while reviewing the paint code on the vehicle and Marti Report. Vehicle comes with the Marti Report, which shows a lot of specifics of the car and rarity (1 of only 307 built that year with these paint and trim codes). I can provide you with a copy of that prior to selling, upon request. Rear window louvers have been powder-coated to prolong the quality. Wheels and tires are in really good shape as well. The rims are original, NOT aftermarket. As stated, this car is in really great shape inside and out, and am looking for a good home for it to go to. I have done several car shows over the past several years, including winning a lot of awards.

Let's start with some history: Ford's Dearborn truck plant, part of the company's massive River Rouge complex, was the center of a strike in 1941 that led to Ford signing the first "closed shop" agreement in the industry. The agreement obliged every worker at the plant to be a dues-paying member of the United Auto Workers. In December 2012, however, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation making Michigan a right-to-work state, which outlawed closed shops. The new law gave workers the right to opt out of union membership and stop paying dues even if they were still covered by union activities like collective bargaining. For employees at the Dearborn plant, the right-to-work clauses take effect at the end of their current contract in 2015.
As a tool-and-die maker at Ford's Dearborn plant for 16 years, Todd Lemire pays dues to the UAW - about two hours' salary per month. However, he's been unhappy with the UAW's support of the Democratic party, and not wanting to wait until next year to be out of the UAW entirely he invoked his Beck Rights, which state that a non-member of a union does not have to pay dues to support non-core activities, such as political spending. But Lemire wasn't happy that Ford still subtracted the total amount of dues, with the UAW reimbursing the difference, so he filed suit with the National Labor Relations Board, feeling that the workaround violates his rights.
Lemire's case is just a week old, so it could be a while before a resolution. Yet, as September 15, 2015 draws near and the right-to-work laws take full effect for Michigan workers - and others wonder whether it could help revitalize the state's manufacturing base - a case like this adds more fuel to the discussion.
Just a few days ago we brought you news that Ford had issued a recall on 28,000 units of the Edge crossover for problems related to the fuel line. But now the Blue Oval has issued recall notices on two more of its larger vehicles.
The first relates to the Explorer, 395 examples of which from the 2011 and 2012 model years were found to have problems with their steering systems if they underwent service after September 1, 2013. An apparent software glitch could lock the steering gear, preventing the driver from steering the vehicle and thereby increasing the risk of a crash. As a result, Ford dealers are being instructed to check their records to identify the problematic vehicles and bring them in to have the steering gear replaced. Details of the recall can be found in the PDF linked here.
The second problem revolves around E-Series vans that may develop bubbles in their windshields under hot temperatures. The decrease in visibility through the problematic windshield could - you guessed it - "increase the risk of a crash." As a result, Ford is calling in 4,532 units of the E-150, E-250, E-350 and E-450 vans built in the relatively short window between May 12 and May 26, 2011. Details of this recall can be found in the notice below from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Formula One World Champions Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell haven't been on good terms since the 1986 season, when Piquet joined Mansell at the Williams team and Piquet spent the year privately fuming about not being granted the status of number one driver. Things only got worse from there - even though Piquet won the title the following year with Williams, still partnered with Mansell, the fuming was a lot less private.
They're back together after a 25-year silence, in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil to drive the new Ford Fusion. Called "Fusion Grand Prix," both men get the new Ford sedan, prepped to their liking - but still street legal, we assume - for a race to decide... well, who is faster behind the wheel of a Fusion.
There will be four episodes, with the first two having already aired. The third episode comes on January 29 and the race happens February 5. You'll find two video episodes and a press release below, but note - because it's a campaign for Ford Brazil, Piquet's dialogue in the vids isn't translated, so hit the Closed Captioning button to hear his side of the smack talking.
