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.

USPS releases hot rod stamps to speed up your delivery

Sun, 08 Jun 2014 10:30:00 EST

After one of the worst winters in recent memory for much of the country, summer is finally here. It's time to drop the top, open the sunroof or at least put down the windows and take a long drive. The United States Postal Service is celebrating the season's sun in automotive style with two new hot rod Forever stamps.
Both stamps depict classic '32 Ford hot rods. One shows the car from the front at a low angle in red (pictured above), while the other depicts the car from the back in black with flames running down the side.
To introduce the new stamps on their first day of availability, the USPS went straight to the source at the National Street Rod Association Street Rod Nationals in York, PA. They were unveiled by Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, Car Crazy host Barry Meguiar and NSRA Special Events Director Jerry Kennedy.

Focus STs for SEMA include Lotus and Gulf liveries, rally-fied police car

Tue, 22 Oct 2013 14:15:00 EST

Ford, as we mentioned on Saturday, is pulling out all the stops for November's SEMA show, bringing 57 vehicles to the Las Vegas event. Ford will be staggering the release of its SEMA flotilla, though, so expect to hear a lot about the new additions to the fleet in the weeks to come. We already showed you the Fiesta, Fiesta ST and Mustang models that made up the first batch of SEMA cars. Next up, we have a quartet of modded Focus STs joining Ford's SEMA roster.
Our first Focus ST (pictured above) sports the legendary livery of Gulf Racing. The orange-on-blue scheme, which Ford helped make famous at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, has been updated for 2013, with a more vibrant blue. This ST was built by Universal Technical Institute, while the exterior was done by Neil Tjin of Tjin Edition. Side exhausts, a Vortech supercharger and a Motiv Concepts high-flow cat allow the ST to breathe a bit easier, while Forgestar wheels contrast well with the iconic paint scheme.
Focus ST number two has been done-up by PM Lifestyle and is inspired by "Southern California car culture." Sporting a sleek, pale blue paint job, there's also no shortage of carbon fiber on the car's exterior. The 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine has been massaged by the likes of Banks Power, COBB Tuning and Ford Racing, while the suspension is wearing a shiny, new set of coilovers and sway bars. The meaty brakes, tucked behind 19-inch, Rotiform wheels, come from Wilwood, while the cabin has been fitted with a pair of Sparco Chrono seats and five-point, Schroth harnesses.

Volvo to shake off Ford ties with new platforms, engines

Sat, 23 Feb 2013 13:00:00 EST


It would seem Volvo is finally getting around to throwing all of Ford's things out of the apartment. Automotive News reports the Swedish automaker is preparing to unleash a range of new engines as well as a fresh platform designed entirely in house. The powerplants include an all-new four-cylinder engine set to bow before the end of this year before arriving in the US by 2014. Shortly thereafter, the world should get its first glimpse at the next-generation XC60, which will the company's first model to make use of the Volvo scalable platform architecture (SPA). US buyers can expect to see that machine on their roads by early 2015.
The next V70 and S80 will also use the SPA, though those models will carry V90 and S90 designations when they hit dealer floors. But that doesn't mean Volvo has completely weened itself off of Ford technology. The V40 will continue to ride on Ford bones until the model's next chassis can be co-developed between Volvo and Geely.
