1989 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 (2013 MCA Indy National Event Show Winner)

I had this car listed earlier this year here on EBay, but it did not sell as it did not hit my reserve price. I am actually kind of glad it didn't sell, because just shortly after I had it listed the transmission went out and the last thing I will do is misrepresent something. It now has a new trans. and is ready to go. I do have more invested in the car than I am asking, but isn't that the way it always is?

 If you are looking for a VERY Clean and nice Foxbody Mustang, than this is the one for you! Up for auction is this rare color combination 1989 Mustang LX 5.0 -  This car is just one of the few left out there that isn't cut up and been made into a race car. The engine is all stock and original with only 60,955 miles. The only performance addition is an K&N air filter. I did install a new water pump, 160 degree thermostat, belt tensioner pulley, intake gaskets, timing chain gasket, oil pan gasket, serpentine belt, hoses, and a new aluminum radiator when I detailed the engine compartment. All new A/C components include, compressor, receiver/dryer, condenser, and hoses. The A/C has been converted to 134A and blows ice cold. The car has a fresh rebuilt transmission with "less than 50 miles on it", done by Dan Gilsdorf at Silverfox Transmissions. For the internal information regarding this AOD-450 click on this link Also installed in the transmission is a hi-performance valve body from Silverfox Transmissions. The SPT-R (with a manual O/D lock-out valve body really woke this car up)!  The shift pattern is altered so that the user can command each gear separately, and has a 12 volt solenoid for overdrive engagement.  No more “1-D-1 Shuffle”!!!  This VB can be shifted manually to higher gears while the lower gears maintain fully automatic function controlled with TV pressure. I hid the 12V toggle switch for this feature in the ash tray located on the console. I also went ahead and installed a brand new Circle D torque convertor as Dan recommended. This link shows the specs. for the convertor. With the new 8.8  3.73:1 Ford Motorsports rear gear the car BARKS the tires in the 1-2 shift and CHERPS the tires in the 2-3 shift. 

It has the 5-lug conversion kit from Late Model Mustang with 28- Spline axles. Has the factory headers with a BBK H-Pipe & Flowmaster American Thunder 409S stainless steel kit w/ polished tips. (I still have the original pipe with the convertors that will go with the car). The car has an awesome stance as it has Eiback Sportline lowering kit which dropped it 1.7" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. New front KYB Struts and Maximum Motorsports caster/camber plates for the proper frontend alignment. New KYB rear shocks also. New front disc brakes & bearings as part of the 5-lug conversion. Wheels are Billet Specialties Street Lites. Front is 15x3.5 w/1.75 Backspacing, the rears are 15x8 w/5.5 Backspacing. (no tire rubbing issues). The front tires are Kumbo Power Star 165/80R-15 and the rears are Nitto Drag Radials 275/50-15. (The factory 4-lug 10 hole wheels go with the car also.) 

The exterior color is Cabernet Red with a RARE interior color of Saddle Tan. The car has all of its original NOS sheet medal & body panels and upholstery & carpet.

 Again this car is very clean and highly detailed. It has won Best of Show in it's class at the Arthritis show in Dublin, OH in 2012 and it was a Class winner at the 2013 Race to Indy Mustang Club of America National Event in Indianapolis, IN

Cadillac reveals stretched ATS-L in China

Tue, 29 Jul 2014

In the market for a new Cadillac, but need more space than an ATS can afford? Then you'll want to look at the larger CTS. Unless you live in China, where buyers - often chauffeured instead of driving themselves - seem to prefer a long-wheelbase version of a smaller sedan than upgrading to a larger one. For those buyers, Cadillac has released the new ATS-L.
Based on the existing ATS sports sedan, the ATS-L offers an extra 3.3 inches of rear legroom over the model we get here. As a result, the ATS-L stretches its wheelbase to 112.5 inches and its overall length to 186 inches, while riding a quarter-inch lower than the standard-wheelbase model, which itself was recently updated. That places its length in between the regular ATS and the CTS available Stateside.
Otherwise it's essentially the same sedan, but appears to ditch the base 2.0-liter four to offer either the 2.0-liter turbo four or 3.6-liter V6. Of course this model, produced locally for the Chinese market, isn't likely to make the transpacific voyage to US showrooms, so American buyers will still have to choose between the standard ATS, the larger CTS or the even larger XTS.

Cadillac Elmiraj sedan RWD flagship finally caught testing

Wed, 22 Jan 2014

While we still have no insight as to it being named Elmiraj, STS or some other permutation of the -TS nomenclature ("LTS" has apparently been registered by GM, as well), new spy shots give us proof positive that Cadillac is indeed hard at work on a rear-wheel-drive flagship model. Spied for the very first time in some north country testing, these shots provide a first look at the upcoming range-topper from Cadillac.
Impressively long and large bodywork ride atop new General Motors' corporate Omega rear-drive architecture here. Heavy cladding over camouflage may discourage finding any details, but the overall, sharp-edged and blocky design is clearly reminiscent of what we've seen on the new CTS and the recently debuted ATS coupe. A strong, wheels-at-each-corner stance helps emphasize the length of this stretched Caddy, and everything about the proportions seem spot-on for a new fullsize flagship for the brand.
It's quite possible that Cadillac will ultimately festoon this large sedan with detailing reminiscent of the original Elmiraj coupe, though thus far we've only seen prototypes wearing four-doors.

Saturn Vue ignition switch leads to new group of GM recalls totaling 312k

Fri, 08 Aug 2014

General Motors has another spate of recalls to announce. This time they cover 312,280 vehicles worldwide, including 269,041 of in the US, in a total of six campaigns. In 2014, the automaker has recalled 29,079,765 vehicles worldwide, with 25,754,356 of those in the US.
The largest among them covers 215,243 units of the Saturn Vue from 2002-2004 model years worldwide, 202,115 in the US. It's possible for the for the key to be removed even when the ignition isn't in the OFF position. The company knows of two crashes and one injury caused by this problem. Dealers are checking the parts and replacing the ignition cylinder and key set, if necessary.
Next is 72,826 models worldwide (48,059 vehicles in the US) of the 2013 Cadillac ATS four-door sedan, 2013 Buick Encore and 2013 Chevy Trax in Canada. It's possible that the for lap belt pretensioner to retract but not to lock, which could increase occupant movement during a crash. Both front, outboard lap belt pretensioners are being replaced, and a stop-sale is in effect on unsold models until the problem is repaired. There are no known crashes or injuries, though.
