I purchased this rust-free, unmolested, original paint Meadowlark Yellow fastback, 302 cu. in. 210HP, C4 automatic
with console and bucket seats in 2010 along with the original owner's paperwork indicating it spent most of its
life in the Los Angeles, California area. The original paint was worn thin with primer beginning to show and the
trim needing to be refurbished. The car was completely stripped of all trim including the bumpers and re-chromed,
re-anodized, polished, or replaced. Minor body work was completed (none involving rust) and then painted in the
original color. I have all receipts and have each item listed line by line indicating total cost of $30,000
including the original purchase price. I have over 400 photos documenting the refurbishment and upgrading process.
NADA price report (2/20/16) indicates $33,000 High Retail. This price has been adjusted for air conditioning which
is the only adder included in the NADA pricing. Note the original A/C components have been changed to 134a from the
firewall forward including a new condenser and more efficient Sanden compressor. Added 3 relays (low, medium, &
high) to the blower motor which removes the electrical load from the original switch. The interior only required
replacement of the foam and upholstery on the driver's bucket seat and carpet. A new headliner had been installed
when I purchased the auto. I like the "porthole" dash presentation, but the speedometer is difficult to read, even
in daylight, I assume this is why Ford went to an argent background color in 1969. Rather than change the
background I installed a dimmer equipped strip of LED lights around the speedometer that are turned ON with the
ignition switch (operates day or night).. Quick list of upgrades: Self-winding shoulder seat belts. Does away with
the clumsy two buckle first year Ford shoulder belts. Fuse box added on radiator support.. Relays added for low and
high beam halogen headlights. Relay added to serve Sanden A/C compressor clutch. #8 gauge wire from new fuse box
location to (3) relays serving the A/C heater blower. Fire extinguisher mounted in trunk (required at most auto
shows). Automatic radio antenna. Operates up/down when radio is turned on/off. Power steering fluid cooler added in
return line to pump. Stainless steel radiator overflow tank. Grant wood steering wheel. Original, in good
condition, is also included. Ford Duraspark II electronic ignition. Voltmeter installed in clock location. Dual
exhaust. Exits in original locations behind rear wheels. Automatic transmission overhauled by local shop. The
flawless condition, upgrades, and recent addition of new rear brakes easily qualify this vehicle for the "High
Retail" NADA value.

2015 Ford Focus gets more Aston-y [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 17:02:00 EST

With more and more members of the Ford brand adopting a new familial face, the Focus has been left looking like an odd man out. At the Geneva Auto Show, though, it properly rejoined the family, adopting the now familiar Aston Martin-ish grille that's proliferated throughout the range.
Overall, we're liking the refreshed Focus' look. Aside from the new grille, the headlights have been restyled and now look like elongated versions of the lamps on the Focus ST. Functionally, those headlamps are bi-xenon units, complete with an adaptive front lighting system. Out back, the rear retains the same overall look, which has been smoothed out for 2015.
In the cabin, the second-generation of Ford's much-maligned Sync system makes its debut. Sync 2, as it's called, is supposedly more intuitive than the first-gen system. Ford is promising "one-shot" navigation functions for the system. Saying "I'm hungry," should bring up a list of nearby restaurants. Of course, we'll be reserving final judgment until we can test the new system in person.

Mustang-themed pinball game debuting in Chicago [w/video]

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 10:29:00 EST

Believe it or not, but new pinball machines are still being made. Chicago-based Stern Pinball still makes them and has found a niche selling modern machines to individual buyers and arcade distributors. For its latest cabinet, Stern partnered with Ford to create a pinball game that pays homage to the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, including the next generation. The new machine is being unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show on February 6 and goes on sale in March.
Stern is offering the machine in three variants. The pro-level machine is meant for arcades and public spaces and retails for $4,995. All of them come with background and cabinet art by Camilo Pardo, who designed the Ford GT, and Top Gear USA host Tanner Foust is the game's announcer. Depending on where players shoot the ball, they activate events that simulate drag racing, rallying, drifting and racing the Mustang, and hitting targets lets players shift the gears up and down.
An upgraded, premium table with added art will be added later for pinball machine collectors. The third model is a signed, special edition with art of the 1965 Mustang and 2015 Mustang on the machine and chrome and Mustang badges on the speaker grilles. Prices for these editions will be announced later.

Riding along in Ford's bonkers Fiesta ST Global RallyCross car [w/video]

Wed, 28 Aug 2013 14:58:00 EST



The Mountune-worked Fiesta ST GRC does 0-to-60 mph in 1.9 seconds.
On any given day, and every single weekend, there's at least one parking in the country invaded by manufacturer and team trucks. The be-chromed beasts and their 53-foot trailers are slotted into rows, men and women decorate the lot with orange cones to mark the invisible tracery of a temporary track, cars get unloaded, crews fret over them. The ritual can be as beautiful as the sunrise to those with enthusiast hearts, but it's just as common.
