1970 Ford Torino GT Factory 351 Cleveland 4V. 3 speed FMX automatic transmission, 9" 3.00:1 rear. Factory A/C.
The Torino was purchased new by my grandparents in 1970 and has been in the family since new. It starts, runs and drives and is a good restoration project car. I always intended to restore it but never found the time so its time to let it go to someone who can take the time to restore it. The engine and transmission are original and have never been out of the car or had any major work done. The engine does blow some smoke at startup as the valve seals have deteriorated. It still has 165-175 psi compression in every cylinder and is otherwise mechanically fine. The carburetor, air cleaner and distributor have been replaced, but the original factory parts are in the trunk. It currently has a 600cfm Edelbrock performer carburetor and a Mallory electronic distributor. The belt has been removed from the factory A/C because some of the idler pulleys have seized and need to be replaced. The transmission works perfectly and shifts firmly but it has an external leak somewhere. It recently had the fluid and filter changed and a new pan gasket put on but it still leaks a little even when sitting. I suspect it may be the selector shaft seal or the tail shaft seal. The body and interior are complete with the exception of the missing ashtray in the center console. The exterior paint color is not the original color. It was originally green with a laser stripe, but my Aunt had it painted blue sometime in the late 1970s. The white interior is original and in fair shape. The body is in fair shape considering its age but it needs new rear quarter panels and the passenger side front floor pan is rusted. There are some other rust issues noted in the pictures and quite a few little parking lot dents. It currently has the original 4 wheel manual drum brakes. I have complete V8 Granada spindles from the junkyard to convert it to front disc brakes but I never had the time to put them on. All of the V8 Granada brake parts are included in the trunk with the car and can been seen in the pictures.

We're use to forbidden fruit teasing us in Europe. Hatchbacks and diesels from Renault, Citroën, Peugeot, Skoda, SEAT and Alfa Romeo have been a regular torment that we've grown accustomed to over the years. This vehicle, though, is one piece of forbidden fruit we aren't entirely sure we can get over. We need it.

It's called the Ford Troller T4, and if you accidentally read that as either "reborn Ford Bronco" or "Americanized Land Rover Defender," we wouldn't be rushing to correct you. It's a basic, badass SUV, and is the first new vehicle to come from Troller since Ford gobbled it up in 2007. For those with longer memories, you'll recognize this vehicle from the concept that preceded it, the Ford T-R Concept. The production model remains remarkably true to the T-R, as well as past Trollers, but it's a slightly more modern look overall, with LED taillights, contrasting colors
You'll have to bear with us on the details, as we've been forced to rely on the notoriously literal Google Translate to convert the original Portuguese into English, which means some of the details were lost along the way.
It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.

CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).

Highly intrigued, we recently visited a Southern California Gas Company office to check out several hybrid vehicles promising something new. Unlike more commonplace gasoline-electric hybrids, we were there to evaluate innovative gasoline-compressed natural gas (CNG) hybrids - yes, they run on unleaded gasoline and compressed natural gas. According to the experts on hand, this arrangement delivers extended range and reduced emissions while chipping in with lower operating costs than pure-gasoline vehicles. There are advantages over its gasoline-electric counterparts, as well.
The program is part of a three-way collaboration between The Carlab, a Southern California-based automotive consulting firm, Landi Renzo USA, a company specializing in alternative fuel solutions, and America's Natural Gas Alliance, a group that promotes CNG. Long story short, the team has engineered a way to allow a modified internal combustion vehicle to seamlessly switch between two fuels (gasoline and CNG) with no driver intervention. In theory, and if it works as well as promised, it's a win-win for the vehicle owner and the environment.
Parked at the Gas Company office were six different gasoline-CNG hybrid vehicles. To demonstrate the technology's versatility (just about any gasoline vehicle may be modified) Carlab brought a varied assortment of bodystyles, each from a different automaker. After taking a quick glance at the half-dozen in the parking lot, we made a beeline for the performance-oriented Ford Mustang GT - a 2012 model - with the six-speed manual gearbox.
