A FEATURED RIDE ON ScottyDtv on U TUBE . look under auburn 2014 traveling charity show.  Lets start right off by saying this is a right hand drive street/hot rod/rat rod! Now ur thinking it will be very difficult to drive a right hand drive vehicle! Wrong!! Everyday postal carriers drive right hand drive vehicles and most of Europe drives right hand drive vehicles! If they can do it so can U!!! and yes the pedals are in normal locations gas on the right brake on the left. It has a custom built steel tubing chassis with a 4in Z in the front and a 15in Z in the rear. With 4 link rear with a coil over shock system. In front we have a ford model a suicide style front axle with model B wish bones spilt with tie rod ends and custom built friction shocks. Also included in the front suspension is a factory Corvair Aluminum steering gear with a new 360deg pitman arm from Speedway Motors. Front spindles are factory ford 37-48 with a new Speedway Motors disc brake kit and a 2in raised steering arm. The body is an original steel Henry Ford 1926 Model T Sedan. It was in excellent cond before the custom body work was done. It has an 8in chop with the rear window being sectioned flipped and chopped 6in. the Visor is completely custom made as is the windshield header panel and the windshield still hinges and swings out. The roof is a custom cut Hickory hand scraped hardwood floor. Mounted down with over 30 polished brass acorn nuts. The cowl has also has a length of factory style hood welting that has been laid in place with more polished brass acorn nuts and house's the original 11 gallon gas tank. And to continue with the brass theme both door handles have been buffed to remove most plating to show there brass and copper construction and both radiator support rods are polished solid brass. The radiator shell is from a 1924 Durant Star and has been ornamented with the radiator cap topper from an 8n ford tractor. The radiator is a new Champion 2 core aluminum and has a new 16in electric fan mounted to back side to keep the performance 350 Chevy motor cool. The motor has a new water pump! New Fuel pump! New Hi torque starter and a Mercruiser one wire hi amp alternator. The ignition system is a new pro comp stand alone distributor with high voltage coil. The plug wires are 8mm from summit racing. The Holley carburetor is a 600 cfm and was rebuilt by us and works great. The new reproduction caddy/olds air cleaner sets off the look of the motor off along with the satin black Chevrolet tall valve covers. The exhaust is giving the car that fast racing look! They are sprint car style headers and have built in mufflers and are covered in a nice header wrap. Now for the transmission. It's a Chevy turbo 350 with a 2400 stall convertor and shifted into gear via a custom made shifter. (see pics) the rear end is a 1970 Buick skylark single track 10 bolt with a low 3 series gear.

This is a rare part here! It is from a 1934 Huppmobile 3 window coupe model W136. Few of these cars were made and even the fewer still exists. We filled all the holes on the middle of the dash and moved the glove box door to the left side of the car. Then we filled the factory holes in the center of dash then mounted VDO classic style speedo/temp/oil pressure gauges. There is a airplane style toggle for the ignition and a hidden key switch under the dash beside the steering column. Mounted to the steering column is the turn signal switch and horn button. All glass in the sedan has been replaced with new laminated safety glass. All side windows door and qrt glass still crank up and down. I am sure somewhere in here I have forgot something so if u have any questions please just ask! U can call or txt me at 260-715-188O.

Ford reveals new rapid prototyping and low-volume production techniques [w/video]

Mon, 08 Jul 2013

It's called "F3T," and that stands for Ford Free-form Fabrication Technology. The process that The Blue Oval has developed means being able to sidestep the weeks-long process of tool-and-die making when engineers want to construct a new part, allowing them to fabricate a three-dimensional part from a two-dimensional sheet of metal in just hours.
While F3T is being developed it is limited to "low-volume prototyping or even low-volume niche vehicles," but the next step is to evaluate it for use in Ford's global manufacturing facilities. You can find out more about it in the video and the press release below.

Ford Fiesta ST GRC Racecar is hungry for podiums in 2013

Thu, 07 Feb 2013

As we reported earlier, the Chicago showing of this plucky Ford Fiesta ST GRC racer points to bigger and brighter days for Global RallyCross. For the upcoming season, you can expect to see Ken Block and Tanner Foust both driving the Ford racecar, and if last season's results are any indication, you can anticipate quite a few podium appearances, as well.
The Fiesta seen here was built by the Swedes at OlsbergsMSE, and will be driven in anger by Foust in 2013. Modifications are, as you'd expect, extensive, and include an engine, exhaust and braking upgrades, a racing style short-throw shifter and a limited-slip differential. As you can see, the car has been fully stripped out and caged for maximum speed and safety, too.
Refresh your memories with the details of the car, in the press releases below. And if you head out to the Chicago Auto Show this year, don't forget to drop by the Ford stand to have a look.

Ford-sponsored survey says a third of Brits have snapped a 'selfie' while driving [w/videos]

Fri, 08 Aug 2014

Talking on the phone while driving isn't advisable, and texting while driving is downright dangerous. Considering those truths, the fact that we even need to point this out this is incredibly disturbing: taking "selfies" while behind the wheel is exceptionally stupid. But, it's a thing that a third of 18- to 24-year-old British drivers have copped to doing, according to a new study from Ford.
Ford, through its Driving Skills for Life program, surveyed 7,000 smartphone owners from across Europe, all aged between 18 and 24, and found that young British drivers were more likely to snap a selfie while behind the wheel than their counterparts in Germany, France, Romania, Italy, Spain and Belgium.
According to the study, the average selfie takes 14 seconds, which, while traveling at 60 miles per hour, is long enough to travel over the length of nearly four football fields (the Ford study uses soccer fields, but we translated it to football, because, you know, America). That's an extremely dangerous distance to not be focused on the road.
