Up for auction is my 65 T-Bird convertible, whice I owned for the last 25 plus years. Drove it to meets all around the NE, and to most local shows. Great road car, drives, and handles like an expensive new car. This Thunderbird has the original leather black seats, in good condition. Car has been repainted about 10 years ago, and in good, to fair condition. Has some minor scratchs, but no dents, nor rot. Bumpers are all original, with original chrome, no dents, or missing parts. All the rest of chrome is all in good condition. Has power windows, all working. Has a "swing away " streering wheel, allowing driver to enter, exit car easy. The convertible top is original, with no tears, etc. One pad for the top, whice is located inside of the car has a portion missing, but dose not hinder the woking of the top. The top is in working condition, all relays work, same for hyd cylinders. I replaced some of the hyd hoses, and did replace the top motor. Also, replaced the limit switch. I added a "tunic top", that covers the back seat, as seen in the picture. Has the 390 engine, with auto-trans. Since I had the car, I replaced the lifters, oil pump, water pump, and had tune ups done. Has new white wall tires. Has the original hub caps in good condition. The radio was replaced by preivous owner with a am/fm type. Same for the ant. This Thunderbird is a good example of a convertible, that will allow you to drive, and if it's your desire to do a restoration, you can drive it also. I did also add a passenger side Thunderbird mirror, whice I forgot to memtion. I'm selling off some of my cars due to age, and health, and this is the first being offered. Along with the car, go's all the parts that I aqquired over the time I had this car, as well as the used parts replaced. Will also add the repair manual. Please look over the pictures, and do ask questions before bidding. Good luck, and thanks for looking.

A weekend rental of a Ford Mustang GT Convertible sounds like a nice, relaxing way to burn some gas, but one Nova Scotia woman's two-day rental is turning into a months-long headache. In early October, Kristen Cockerill picked up the Mustang from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and she returned it the following day as stipulated by the rental contract. Unfortunately, she dropped the car off on a Sunday - a day on which the particular Enterprise office is closed - and the car ended up being stolen overnight.
Tue, 16 Jul 2013 15:58:00 EST
Now, two months later, CBC reports that Cockerill received a bill from Enterprise for the full replacement of the car totaling $47,271 (a base 2014 Mustang GT Convertible currently costs $40,349 in Canada). As it turns out, the fine print in the contract says that the renter is responsible for cars dropped off after hours until it can be inspected the next business day - this is also reflected on the key drop seen in the news report video, which states "vehicles returned after hours are the responsibility of the renter until inspected on the next business day."
It's not clear how much, if any, of that amount Cockerhill will be responsible for once her insurance company gets involved, but if the insurance company refuses to pay, Enterprise will bill the amount to the credit card she provided during her rental. While this ordeal is far over for Cockerhill, it's a good reminder for the rest of us to always read the fine print.
A national law firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit whose presupposition is that MyFord Touch is defective. Specifically, the complaint states that the system - as well as the MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch clones - often freeze, fail to respond to voice or touch commands and have issues connecting to mobile phones.
Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:59:00 EST
According to Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman, MyFord Touch is a theoretically "brilliant idea" that falls short in actual execution. Said Berman in a press release, "In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst."
Other MFT issues enumerated within the 41-page filing include problems controlling the window defroster, rear-view camera and navigation system. The suit maintains that Ford is aware of the problem but has yet to submit a workable and acceptable solution to MFT customers. Scroll down if you'd like to read the full press release.
Connected cars are coming en-masse. We know this much. How, though, remains something of an open question, especially as two of the world's largest tech companies are preparing to battle for control of your car's dashboard. On the one hand, we have Apple and its CarPlay system. And now, we know what Google has been working on with Auto Link.
Its new name is Android Auto, and yes, it's based off the Android architecture that is the primary challenger to Apple's iOS mobile operating system. Announced at Google's I/O conference today, Android Auto functions similarly to CarPlay - owners will need to plug their smartphones into their cars to access the full breadth of capability.
In Android Auto's case, that means a wealth of voice controls to limit distracted driving. Google's marquee apps will be available when the interface arrives in production models later this year, including Google Play Music, Google Maps and voice-activated texting and text playback. Meanwhile, developers will be able to begin designing custom apps for the new system via an upcoming software development kit.
