One owner, all original, 1962 Ford Galaxie with only 96,000 actual miles. Equipped with a 292 Y-Block V8 and 3-speed manual transmission with column shift, padded dash, deluxe two-tone white interior. Was driven daily by a woman until 2004 when she quit driving. Regular maintenance and repairs were always done on time and immediately by the same local repair shop in town for the entire life of the vehicle. The car had been sitting until last year when I acquired it. I have buffed and polished the original paint (two-tone burgandy and white top) and it looks really nice for a weathered but clean 'PATINA' look with the two-toned paint faded away but shiny. Throw a coat of wax on it regularly and preserve it for another 20 years. Original hub caps are included although not shown in the pictures. I have ran the engine with an electric transfer pump and a gas can, and it runs like a watch-clean, quiet and smooth as silk. I have overhauled the carburetor and reinstalled it, but have not replaced the fuel filters or the rubber hoses. Therefore I have not ran it on its own fuel tank. It wouldn't hurt to clean the tank first. This car is equipped with a factory optional auxiliary canister fuel filter, so there are two filters. I have also replaced the brake master cylinder, and removed the weathered and worn carpet. I have new fuel filters and new front wheel cylinders that should be installed. The original headliner, door trim panels, sail panels, quarter trim panels, and trunk mat is all intact and in very good condition so I have not removed it. The car will need front seat upholstery, carpet, and the dash pad is cracked. It will need a new ignition lock cylinder or switch but I have correct keys for the car. The right front floor pan is rusted through but easily replaceable and only $67, the driver front floor pan is somewhat rusted but not through the metal. The battery tray is rusted as well. The car will also need a battery. The tires are not road worthy and the left front only holds air for a few days and the right rear only for a few hours. I had hopes of getting the drivetrain all in good working order and driving it, but I am moving and do not have time to fix it and I already have too many vehicles that will be going into indoor storage.

Popular Science has named the winners in its Best of What's New awards, the victors coming in the categories of aerospace, automotive, engineering, entertainment, gadgets, green, hardware, health, home, recreation, security and software. The automotive category did not go wanting for lauded advancements:
Tesla Model S: the Grand Award winner for being "the standard by which all future electric vehicles will be measured."
BMW 328i: it's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gets called out for being more powerful and frugal than the six-cylinder it replaces.
It never ceases to amaze us how much video production talent you can find on YouTube, especially when considering movies like Battleship actually exist on the silver screen. It's even better, of course, when cars are involved, which is why we can't stop watching this car chase between a pair of radio controlled Ford Mustangs.
Racing through a detailed set built in the middle of a public street using just "cardboard, hot glue and spray paint," this video is possibly even greater than The Greatest R/C Car Chase Ever that we saw last year. With the exception of a fruit stand and/or a plate-glass window being carried across the street, this has all the makings of a classic cliché chase scene.
Scroll down to watch the scaled-down action ensue as well as the full-scale conclusion.
Here's the thing about China: The folks buying cars there have a very different set of standards than shoppers in many other markets around the globe. While we all drool over hot metal with bold designs, and while we appreciate automakers going an extra step to inject even their cheapest offerings with aggressive and interesting cues, that sort of sheetmetal sex appeal doesn't always sell in the People's Republic. Case in point is Jaguar, which may be designing a more traditional-looking version of its XJ for the Chinese market, or more to the point of this story, Ford currently sells the less-exciting, last-generation Focus compact in China right alongside the new one.
So consider this new Shanghai-bound C-segment concept a preview of what's to come for that more traditional, budget-minded, less-sexy market. More proof of this pudding: Ford's even calling this concept the Escort - a nod to the Blue Oval's compact car days of yore, and a name that stirs up thoughts of basic, affordable transportation rather than great driving dynamics or bold design. "Customers in China described seeking a vehicle that is stylish - but not one that is arrogant or pretentious," Ford states. And this new Escort concept previews a possibility of providing exactly that for this rapidly expanding automotive market.
What you're looking at, then, is one of the most simple Ford designs we've seen of late, though it still incorporates all of the automaker's latest DNA. The signature hexagonal grille is front and center, flanked by attractive LED headlamps and chrome-rimmed foglamp housings. The entire car's design focuses on clean, smooth surfaces, with one strong character line flowing from front to back just below the beltline. We will say that the car looks decidedly more premium from the rear view, where narrow, horizontal taillamps with an LED accent give the car added visual width. Bland as it may be, it's a handsome little concept, though fear what would likely happen if all of the conceptual details get dumbed down for a production model.
