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.

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor sales jumping to new heights

Thu, 12 Sep 2013 19:00:00 EST

Ford can't seem to build F-150 SVT Raptors fast enough. The off-road-ready trucks have been one of the Blue Oval's most reliable sellers, with record sales in eight of the last 10 months and a 14-percent jump in 2013. That's impressive enough, considering that the least expensive Raptor starts at $44,000. Factor in the modded F-150's fuel economy (it's rated at 11 miles per gallon in the city and 16 on the highway) and a national average gas price, as of this writing, of $3.55 per gallon, and its success is as unlikely as Ford's home team, the Detroit Lions, winning the Super Bowl this year (sorry, Lions fans, we're just quoting the experts in Vegas...).
Yet for some reason, Raptors spend an average of just 15 days on dealer lots before being snapped up, which is a quarter of the 60-day industry average. According to Ford's truck group marketing manager, Doug Scott, it's capability that keeps the Raptor selling strong. "What's helping drive Raptor sales is that Raptor delivers unmatched off-road performance to our customers. Raptor is also proof of our commitment to offer a truck for every customer and continuously improving them to meet our customers' evolving needs."
To address the strong demand for Raptors, Ford will bump production from three trucks per hour to five. Not much, we agree. But building an extra 48 trucks per day, at most, seems like a prudent way of addressing demand without oversaturating what is ultimately a niche market. Check out the press release below for more.

Ford Fiesta ST in startling track battle against Toyota GT86

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 12:44:00 EST

On the surface, there's very little that the Ford Fiesta ST and Toyota GT86 (or the Scion FR-S that is sold in the US, or the largely similar Subaru BRZ) share in common. One is a hatchback with power coming from a turbocharged engine routed to the front wheels. The other is a coupe with power coming from a naturally aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine routed to the rear wheels.
Thing is, both of them are reasonably priced performance cars aimed at a similar segment of the automotive marketplace, so a comparison isn't out of the question. It is with all of this in mind that we direct you to the video below, in which the blokes from Evo pit the two manic little machines against one another on a race track. The result? Well, it can be summed up this way: Fast versus fun.
See how the track battle goes down in the video below.

Need for Speed movie casts Mustang in hero car role

Mon, 10 Jun 2013 17:59:00 EST

Dreamworks Studios, Electronic Arts and Ford Motor Company announced today that the Ford Mustang will play the lead hero car role in the upcoming Need for Speed movie, slated to hit theaters next February. Of course, the Mustang didn't audition for the role like we imagine the film's star, Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad fame, might have. Rather, Ford and Dreamworks struck a partnership deal that meant the Mustang could skip the casting couch. The deal will also see the film's universe populated with other Ford products (gratuitously so, we're guessing), and the automaker will also help the studio promote the video-game-turned-movie next year.
The hero car in question is a special one-off Mustang created by Ford that is making its debut at the E3 video game trade show as we speak. Powered by a supercharged V8 and apparently based on the Shelby GT500, the car's been modified with a widebody kit, 22-inch wheels, larger air intakes and twin hood nostrils. Ford also provided the film's production with an F-450 truck that will be called "The Beast" in the film's story, and a second Mustang to be used during filming as a camera car.
The Mustang's movie career is really taking off, with news of its Need For Speed casting closely following last week's release of the trailer for Getaway, a movie coming out in August that stars Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez and another Shelby GT500. In addition to Aaron Paul and a modified Mustang, the Need For Speed movie also stars Michael Keaton (cop, we're guessing) and Dominic Cooper (villain, we're guessing), and is directed by Scott Waugh, who directed the Navy SEAL film Act of Valor in 2012.
