For sale on one of the nicest and RAREST T-bird convertibles around! Extensive restoration on a southern rust free
car. Body panels including the floor are original and never rusted! Bottom side of the car was left in factory
undercoated condition. The quality of the paint is outstanding!! The bumpers were rechromed and look fantastic
too!! New exhaust, brakes and front end. The engine and trans were said to be rebuilt also, the engine starts with
no hesitation. Sounds great with no strange noises. The automatic transmission shifts as it should. It goes right
down the road with no wandering, it.s a joy to drive.
To sum it up so far, the mechanics and cosmetics are in fantastic shape.
The car has power windows, power steering, power brakes, power seat AND a power top that work great! The power top
works perfectly and is very easy to stow, somewhat like a retractable hard top works. Just a flip of a button takes
around a minute and you're off!!
It's the 352 cubic inch "interceptor" engine, factory chrome dress up kit and take a look at those wide whites on
Kelsey style wire wheels!! Beautiful "Continental Kit" with a brand new whitewall inside.
Whats bad about the car?? Well, the previous owner installed a modern sound system in the car, the unit is tucked
away in the glove compartment. The speakers, however are mounted in the lower 1/4 of the door panels and kick
panels as pictured. It's not something I would have done but easily rectified. Also, the AC works and blows cold
but has a leak that needs to be addressed. That's about it. It's not so over the top restored that you'd be afraid
to drive it. It's for sure a trophy winner at any car show you take it to, it's a head turner!!

Automakers tussle over owners of 'orphan' makes

Thu, 10 May 2012 08:29:00 EST

When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.
R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln.
Edmunds.com research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.

Shelby GT500 laps N"urburgring in under 7:40?

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:33:00 EST

A couple of weeks ago we brought you footage and official times of the new Chevy Camaro Z/28 lapping the Nürburgring. With a 7:37.47 lap time, the Z/28 emerged as the fastest muscle car ever to lap the circuit. But what was missing from that picture was how fast the king of all Mustangs, the Shelby GT500, could manage to lap the Nordschleife.
Ford never released any information or footage of the GT500 on the Nürburgring that we were aware of - that is, until the guys at SVTPerformance.com put in a request for Mustang videos. Among the clips they received was never-seen, in-car footage of the Shelby GT500 lapping the circuit. And boy did it hustle.
Although not quite official, the video seems to show the GT500 lapped the venerated German track in a touch under 7:40. That would make it a tick or two faster than the Camaro ZL1 - but what of the Z/28? By Chevy's quoted time, the Z/28 is still faster than the GT500, but SVTPerformance suggests GM may have fudged the numbers a bit and scrubbed half a second or so off their lap time.

Ford reveals new rapid prototyping and low-volume production techniques [w/video]

Mon, 08 Jul 2013 10:33:00 EST

It's called "F3T," and that stands for Ford Free-form Fabrication Technology. The process that The Blue Oval has developed means being able to sidestep the weeks-long process of tool-and-die making when engineers want to construct a new part, allowing them to fabricate a three-dimensional part from a two-dimensional sheet of metal in just hours.
While F3T is being developed it is limited to "low-volume prototyping or even low-volume niche vehicles," but the next step is to evaluate it for use in Ford's global manufacturing facilities. You can find out more about it in the video and the press release below.
