im selling my 71 torino 500 with a 429 holley 4 barrel and c6 automatic trans. it has driver quality paint which was done approx. 6 years ago,we added the laser stripes and cobra decals when finished. it has american racing wheels and kelly tires which have very few miles on them. i installed a new trunk mat also. as far as rust issues go there were a few patches put in behind the rear wheels they were welded in so it seems to be holding up well.the interior has had new carpet a dash cap and the seats were upholstered by a local shop. the seat material doesnt exactly match the door panels and the headliner is fine outside of a spot along the edge of the rear window,new dome light lense and bezel.it has a b+m shifter also.after sitting a few months the lifters tick for a while which im told is normal until the engine is warmed up to temp.there is no power steering or power brakes but it runs and drives fine up the road. ive had the car for ten years and i need the extra room in my shop. i am also including a parts car with this sale that has power steering and air conditioning on it. this was originally a 302 car. thanks for looking and good luck bidding

Justin Bell makes a horrible policeman

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 19:29:00 EST

If you're wondering what type of person makes a good police officer, it seems a racecar driver doesn't. Let us rephrase that: Justin Bell, a racecar driver and the host of Motor Trend's World's Fastest Car Show, recently got behind the wheel of a 5.0-liter Ford Mustang police car with Sergeant Daniel Shrubb, co-founder of DRAGG (Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti), and proved that his high-performance-driving skillset is a bit too aggressive for police duty.
While it's easy to get carried away in a Mustang GT, a patrol car driver must maintain some sort of restraint while pursuing a criminal, so as not to come off as a reckless driver to the public. We'll admit, some pursuit techniques are counter-intuitive to performance driving (stay off the gas in a lane-change exercise?), but Bell's judicious use of the handbrake can't be normal procedure.
Watch "The One With The Ford Mustang 5.0 Police Car" (yes, we caught the Friends reference too) below to see some shenanigans in one of Michigan's finest patrol cars.

Experts wonder if aluminum F-150 gives Ford a real advantage

Mon, 17 Mar 2014 18:04:00 EST

There's no doubt that Ford is taking a risk in producing the body of its upcoming new F-150 pickup truck in aluminum. What is up for debate, however, is whether aluminum was a wise risk to take in the first place. Wards Auto took the opportunity to poll some experts on the subject of aluminum versus steel in the automotive sector, with somewhat unsurprising results.
Richard Schultz, a project consultant at Ducker Worldwide, which bills itself as "a leading aluminum industry consultant (though they also deal in steels), suggests that the potential drawbacks to aluminum - higher costs, lower supply - aren't really impediments to the auto industry's increased acceptance of the lightweight metal.
Similarly, Randall Scheps, global automotive marketing director for Alcoa, a massive aluminum producer, counters claims that aluminum is less safe for vehicle occupants, suggesting that the use of aluminum can actually increase safety as it could potentially allow for larger vehicles with more crush space than steel.

2014 Ford Fiesta Titanium

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 12:01:00 EST

You might not be interested in owning a subcompact (B-segment) hatchback for $20,000. Let's be clear from the get go here: there are any number of reasonable arguments for staying away from the highest-content versions of these small cars. Ford's player in the B-segment arena is the newly updated 2014 Fiesta, and the Titanium trim represents the most luxurious instantiation of the model. We recently were loaned a Fiesta Titanium for a week, whose final sticker price hit $20,390, with navigation being the only standalone option added to the bottom line. By way of comparison, the most basic version of the all new, one-segment-up Mazda3 hatchback costs $19,740 with delivery and destination accounted for, and no options added on.
Hold on to that thought for a moment, we'll get back to it.
