                        1930 FORD MODEL A


For Sale is my friend's 1930 Ford Model A, 2 Dr. 5 Window Coupe with the Rumble Seat.  Bob, the owner, is getting up in age and the car is just a little too much for him to drive anymore.  As second owner, Bob has maintained and cherished this car since he has owned it.

The car went through a complete nut and bolt restoration 2002.  The engine, transmission and rear end was completely taken apart and rebuilt to factory specs.  The exterior was painted it's original Andalusite Blue with Black fenders and trim.   The car only has a few thousand miles on it since the restoration.  Every original body panel was removed and painted separately.  There was no rust or bondo repairs made to the car.  It is a very solid, rust free vehicle.  The paint finish is very nice.  No major chips, dings or dents anywhere on this car.  The undercarriage was also detailed and looks as good as the exterior.  The frame was completely media blasted and painted.

Mechanically, everything works except for the wiper motor.  The brakes are fairly new and work very well.  The engine fires right up and idles nicely.  The transmission shifts like new.  The tires are at 80% wear except for one tire which is about 30% wear remaining.   

The interior is like new.  It was finished with LeBaron Bonney fabric that looks authentic and new.  No rips or tears or even wear marks.  The headliner and door panels are also like new. 

I'm starting the bidding at $10K but I have a very low reserve on the car.  It's worth much more than that but the owner says it's time to sell it.  If you have questions, please call me at 574-965-4550 or email me at: kenprieboy@comcast.net.  Thanks for looking and bidding!.......Ken

Popular Science magazine's Best Of What's New 2012 all ate up with cars

Tue, 20 Nov 2012

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.

How Ford hid the 2015 Mustang from spy photographers

Fri, 20 Dec 2013

Now that we've finally seen the 2015 Ford Mustang, it's fun to go back and look at the spy shots we spent months pouring over, trying to dissect what was under all the camouflage. For the most part, Ford did a good job of concealing the car from spy photographers, and it released a video showing how much work went into doing so.
As crude as the Mustang's camo looked, all of the hard plastic, foam, vinyl and ratchet straps were actually created and put in place by a specific design team. The whole idea was to hide the car's identity, but it certainly ended up acting as a magnet for attention, too. According to Ford's press release, it took less than an hour for spy shots to appear online after the car was taken on public roads for the very first time - this is likely in reference to our first official spy shots of the Mustang from June, shown in the gallery below.
Scroll down for a press release and video, which shows footage of the 2015 Ford Mustang testing with minimal camouflage. This is probably the same track session where we got our first look at the Mustang's face back in August.

Ford Explorer, Expedition next to go aluminum?

Sun, 13 Apr 2014

Ford made some serious waves when it unveiled the latest F-150. Instead of making its bodywork out of steel, like just about every other truck on the market, Ford went with aluminum. And you can bet the F-150 won't be the last Ford model to go with the lightweight alloy construction, either.
Our compatriots at Edmunds report that Dearborn is considering replacing two of its most popular SUVs with aluminum versions. One candidate is the Expedition, which would make sense considering that the current model (like the two preceding generations and the fullsize Bronco before it) is based on the F-150's underpinnings. Another is the Explorer, which was traditionally based on the Ranger pickup but went with a car-like unibody chassis in its current iteration. If the Explorer does go the way of aluminum, don't expect it to be a part of its very next update, which is likely due too soon for such major changes.
It would stand to reason that, if the Expedition were to go aluminum, so would the next-generation Lincoln Navigator. Ditto the MKT together with the Explorer. But those aren't likely to be the only models in contention for aluminum construction. Like any other automaker, Ford is under pressure to steadily reduce its carbon emissions and improve its fuel economy figures, prompting it to look at a whole range of measures - including more efficient engines, lower rolling-resistance tires, active aerodynamics and lightweight construction. Expect aluminum to play a big part in that equation moving forward.
