I have a 1988 Ford Thunderbird LX that I am trying to get rid of. This is quite a sweet ride and would make a great summer car or, who knows, maybe even a collectible someday.The good:117,809 miles on it. Pretty low for a car that's 28 years old!Fairly new Cooper Cobra tires on backNo visible rust (there is some under the driver's door, only seen when opened)Interior is in great condition with no rips or tears on seats.Body is in great shape with no dings or dents.Four-way power seats and power windowsThe bad:The car has a blown head gasketSlight shifting cable malfunction, which only allows the car to start in neutral (does not effect performance at all, just something to get used to, or fixed!)The paint is wearing a little on some spots (as seen in pictures)The heating in the car may not be fully functional (But hey, this baby doesn't deserve to be out and about during the harsh New York winters anyway)Driver's door handle requires a little trick to open (Not too big of a deal) Will need an inspection

It never ceases to amaze us how much video production talent you can find on YouTube, especially when considering movies like Battleship actually exist on the silver screen. It's even better, of course, when cars are involved, which is why we can't stop watching this car chase between a pair of radio controlled Ford Mustangs.
Racing through a detailed set built in the middle of a public street using just "cardboard, hot glue and spray paint," this video is possibly even greater than The Greatest R/C Car Chase Ever that we saw last year. With the exception of a fruit stand and/or a plate-glass window being carried across the street, this has all the makings of a classic cliché chase scene.
Scroll down to watch the scaled-down action ensue as well as the full-scale conclusion.
Following positive third quarter financial results recently from General Motors, rival Ford took a tumble in Q3. The automaker posted pre-tax profits of $1.18 billion, compared to about $2.59 billion in Q3 2013, a drop of around 54 percent. Net income also suffered with $835 million made in the quarter, versus $1.272 billion last year, a decline of about 34 percent. The Blue Oval blamed the gloomy figures on three reasons in its release: "lower volume, higher warranty costs and adverse balance sheet exchange effects."
There were problems of one kind or another in practically every region. North America experienced higher warranty costs than expected, partially due to recalls. The sales volume for the quarter was 665,000 units, versus 725,000 in Q3 2013, and pre-tax results amounted to $1.41 billion versus $2.296 billion last year.
South America and Europe both posted worse pre-tax results than last year. On the bright side, European volume was up slightly to 321,000 vehicles, from 303,000 in Q3 2013. The Middle East and Africa also lost $15 million, but that was an improvement compared to the $25 million loss previously experienced in this region.
