CUSTOM BUILT ON A 1957 FORD THUNDERBIRD CHASSIS AND TITLED AS A 1957 FORD THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE

I am very excited to be the new owner of this world famous-Tom Culbertson, award winning, one-of-a-kind
Jet-Age inspired custom 1957 Ford Thunderbird nicknamed "Roxanne". This fabulous showcar is all-steel construction
with all components welded in and skim coated smooth, remeniscent of the Jet-Age inspired "Big Three" prototypes
that today costs upwards $400,000.


The body is all hand formed steel of a 1957 Ford Thunderbird with many body modifications built by Tom
Culbertson of Culbertson's Customs based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. The inspiration for "Roxanne" came from Ed
"Big Daddy" Roth and George Barris designs from the 1950's and is finished in a high gloss brilliant gold metallic
paint with high profiled tailfins, custom grille and a chopped windshield.

One of the striking features is the fully custom white Naugahyde vinyl not only accented in the interior of
the cockpit but also the wheel wells and hood pad which set apart a show car from a mundane cruiser. The steering
wheel is a late '50's Plymouth Aero wheel, and also a custom shifter and of course, a retro rotary phone attached
to the center of the floorboard. The trunk is equipped with a restored 1950's Admiral television and matching
accessories accented in 14-karat gold.

Under the hood, this show stopping roadster sports a high-performance 351-CID Ford V8 engine mated with a Ford
C4 automatic transmission, both rebuilt before installation. The engine sits in a show prepared engine bay and the
car comes with a custom made tonneau cover to protect it from the elements when parked outside but does not have a
hard or soft top as this is a fair weather roadster.

NEVER failed to win, show or place in any auto show in which she was entered and has been
published in numerous magazines and newspaper articles, as this car is a global sensation that will be a unique and
exciting addition to any world-class automobile collection.

Was recently purchased by me from a New Jersey car collection and is currently enroute via enclosed
auto transport to the west coast. I can fully assist in shipping globally.

Ex-PR chief Vines accuses Ford of bugging cars, phones

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:01:00 EST

Jason Vines, former head of communications at Ford among other automakers, is accusing the Blue Oval of bugging his company phone and his car during the Firestone tire recall for the Explorer in 2001. The allegations have come to light in Vines' upcoming book What Did Jesus Drive? Crisis PR in Cars, Computers and Christianity.
According to The Detroit News, which has an advance copy of the book, Vines (pictured above) claims that after leaving the company, someone with security within Ford advised him that he had been bugged around the time of the recall. The allegations don't stop there, though. Vines further contends that he might not have been the only one to get this treatment, noting that then-general counsel John Rintamaki also believed he was being listened to.
According to The Detroit News, even if it had been a company phone, recording Vines without his knowledge still would have been a felony under Michigan law.

Ford Transit production fires up, American Pickers among first takers

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 17:45:00 EST

Not long ago, the History Channel showed a seemingly unending stream of World War II documentaries, but it made a switch a few years ago to include an increasing mix of 'reality' programming. American Pickers was one of the early attempts at this new formula, with cameras following hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz around the country in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter as they tracked down collectibles and "rusty gold" for their Iowa shop, Antique Archeology. The show has since gone on to become one of the channel's most popular programs.
Starting in the new episode airing tonight, the affable hosts will swap their Benz for a 2015 Ford Transit, a nicely timed bit of marketing to coincide with the launch of the model's assembly at the Blue Oval's Kansas City Assembly Plant, which also kicks off this week. Ford is touting 2,000 new jobs created as part of its $1.1-billion investment in the plant.
No strangers to product placement, the guys from American Pickers say their switch away from the Sprinter is because they wanted to balance cargo capacity and fuel economy to make the most of their cross-country jaunts. They opted for the largest Transit available with a long wheelbase, extended body and high roof, giving them 487 cubic feet of cargo room. Hauling power comes from a 3.2-liter, five-cylinder diesel engine with 190 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque and a six-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive. Fittingly, the van wears the same Antique Archaeology logo over white paint as their old Sprinter.

Mulally confirms he's not leaving Ford for Microsoft

Tue, 07 Jan 2014 18:31:00 EST

In recent months, rumors had been flying about Ford CEO Alan Mulally potentially leaving the company to take a position at Microsoft. Last we heard, Mulally was planning to stick around at Ford through at least 2014, and in an interview today, that bit was confirmed by the CEO himself.
According to the Associated Press, in a report from The Detroit News, Mulally said he will not be leaving Ford for Microsoft, and reiterated that he will remain at the Blue Oval through 2014, if not longer. Mulally has "no plans other than to serve Ford," according to the report.
Mulally did not say whether or not he had been in talks with Microsoft at any point. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has said he plans to leave the software company sometime this year.
