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 confirms launch of new Tourneo vans and Ecosport in Europe for Geneva

Sun, 24 Feb 2013 14:00:00 EST

We've already seen plenty of what the Geneva Motor Show will have in store for us in less than two weeks, but most of the confirmed debuts that were announced so far have generally been luxury or performance cars. Ford, on the other hand, will be showing off a couple of its new family-friendly models for European buyers to enjoy.
On the larger side of things, the full range of Tourneo vans (shown above) will be on display, including the introduction of the new Tourneo Courier model, but Ford will also be showing off the all-new EcoSport crossover, which is based on the automaker's Global B platform and will be positioned beneath the Kuga, better known here as the Escape. The subcompact EcoSport was originally unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show last April.

Fitting Retirement: Grand Marquis last Mercury off the line

Wed, 05 Jan 2011 09:00:00 EST

The signs have come down and retail production ended back in October of 2010. Now, the very last Mercury model has rolled off the assembly line. This last Mercury somewhat fittingly takes the form of a Grand Marquis reporting for fleet duty. It was built at the St. Thomas plant in Ontario, Canada, which is the same facility that continues to produce the Ford Crown Victoria and Lincoln Town Car for fleet and livery duty.
St. Thomas' days are numbered, however, as the factory is slated to close on August 31. When it goes, the Panther platform is likely to follow. So long, and thanks for all the fish memories.

2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost

Fri, 09 May 2014 11:58:00 EST

I'll be honest; when Ford first unveiled its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, I was skeptical. Past attempts at building turbocharged American cars were almost universally awful, I reasoned, so why would Ford's latest effort be any different? This may seem foolish today, considering the success that the growing EcoBoost range has achieved - particularly the 2.0-liter and 1.6-liter mills. Yet I once again found myself questioning Ford.
It's the makeup of the 1.0-liter, turbocharged three-cylinder slotted into the compact engine bay of this Fiesta that has a way of breeding doubt. Three-cylinder engines remain an extreme rarity in the US. What's more, they earned a less-than-desirable reputation for applications in the 1980s and 1990s, and my trepidation about this latest three-pot as a result.
As I found out, though, history is a poor informant of modern technology. The thrust available in other cars with the EcoBoost badge on the back has not gone missing here; something the International Engine of the Year committee has lauded. That august body named the 1.0-liter Ecoboost the best engine of 2012 and 2013. After a week of driving, it didn't take long for my fear of threes to get turned into something like that line of thinking.
