1972 Lincoln Continental Limousine ~ goes by the name "Large Marge" ~ Very nice shape, with 85k original miles, runs & drives excellent. Original 460-4V V8 engine with Automatic Transmission, both were professionally rebuilt in the past, car starts right up, runs good, shifts good, idles good at stoplights, just like it should. Tires are a nice set of matching Michelins that are like new. All lights work, even the reverse lights. Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows & Sunroof (all work, some need help closing/ rolling up), factory rear-air unit (works), factory 8 trac player built into dash, and another 8 track player built into wall of passenger rear seating area. There is also a factory built in Cassette player and clock on the opposite side of the rear seating area. I do not have 8 tracs or tapes to try these out, they look to be in nice shape. There used to be a TV mounted between the backwards seats, which is why the big antenna is on the trunk. The antenna is removable, and is even seen off the car in one of the pictures. There is one small hole drilled in the decklid for the mounting of the antenna, and the back mounts are just suction cups, so removing the antenna if not wanted is not a problem. I have been told this is a PRESIDENTIAL LIMO because it has the flag holders mounted to the front fenders... I don't know enough about these cars to know if that's true or not, but you could put flags on your fenders if you want to, I have the poles that go in there as well. This car is incredibly solid, NO RUST HOLES ANYWHERE that I cans see, even the frame and floors, and quarter panels are rock solid! Paint is old and shows its age, it has little dings, 2 dents in the whole car (one up front on the inside of the passage side front point, the other on the drivers side rear quarter in front of the rear wheel). Overall, this car is in very nice shape, especially for its age and never being restored. This is a unique opportunity to own a very neat, collectable car that is ready to drive and enjoy now. Buy this car and have someone drive you around town in it... :) Interior is nice for being original, dash has a few small cracks, due to its age. The carpet is a little faded, but nice shape and all original. Power locks work when they want to, due to age. Headliner is perfect. Door panels are nice, the arm rests are showing their age and have plastic filler pieces cracked up, I am including a nice original full set to replace the original set in the car still. The cool Flip-up / hideaway headlights work when car is running and lights are turned on or off. Wipers work good, heater and air vents blow properly. Never tried the AC (always had the windows down, sunroof back) but its all there and belt still hooked up to compressor. Very comfortable car to sit in/ ride in/ or drive. Carpeted trunk, with full size spare, and access to President rear-air unit. Car also comes with a folder full of receipts and paperwork from work done on this car over the years. This car is tagged, insured, and driven at least once a week... You would not believe the LOOKERS and the smiles this car brings to everyone's faces when we drive it! Large Marge draws a crowd wherever we drive her. Hate to sell, bought a new truck, need to find my limo a new home. Clean Kansas title in my name.

Runs & Drives Great! Fly into Kansas City KCI Airport and drive it home! A $200 non-refundable deposit is due within 48 hours after the auctions end, so I know I have a serious buyer. The remaining balance is due within 7 days after auctions end. If paying with a cashiers check or money order, your payment must clear my bank before you take possession of the car or have a shipper pick it up. Please be sure to email me with any questions, I'm a nice guy and easy to work with. I live right off I-35 in the South-West part of the Kansas City area, in Lenexa Kansas. Don't miss your chance to own a very unique classic car in very good shape, for a great price! Lets find LARGE MARGE a new home!

Ford hybrid sales rebound following MPG controversy

Sun, 31 Aug 2014 13:00:00 EST

Ford hybrid customers apparently have very short memories. With two EPA fuel economy reratings in the last year, sales of the C-Max, Fusion Hybrid and Lincoln MKZ haven't been too terribly dented, Ward's Auto reports.
All three vehicles saw sales dips following the August 2013 rerating, although sales of the MKZ Hybrid had begun to rebound as early as November of that year. C-Max sales, meanwhile, took slightly longer, with sales on a steadily improving course as early as February of this year.
The second rerating, in June of this year, has had an even smaller effect on the Blue Oval's hybrids. The C-Max has actually been subject to a sales increase, while both the MKZ and Fusion saw minor sales drops (less than 400 units between the two in the month following the rerating).

Ford's J Mays feels vindicated by Fusion reception

Tue, 25 Sep 2012 16:30:00 EST

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.

Ford Q3 pretax profits drop to $1.18B

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 16:28:00 EST

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.
