Ford: Mustang Gt 350 Tribute on 2040-cars
Hunt, Texas, United States
Please contact me only at : email@example.com
GORGEOUS 1965 Mustang Fastback GT 350 Tribute car is being offered for sale. This is my dream car, but its holding me back from buying a house which I have the opportunity to get if I sell it :/ This car was COMPLETELY restored from top to bottom several years back, and remains in excellent condition. At restoration it was updated to tribute a 1966 Mustang Gt 350. At this time a brand new 302 engine was installed. This thing has way more kick than what you may expect from a 302 thanks to the .40 over bore, forged pistons, competition 289 duration lift cam etc. etc. etc. This 450 HP engine is bolted to a Ford C-4 transmission with B.M quick shift ratchet shifter. Summit turbo exhaust sounds heavenly at idle as well as cruising the roads! The interior of the car is almost flawless. It should exceed expectations (as long as they are realistic.) All upholstery, and interior in general was completely redone/replaced at restoration. Since the car has not sat out in the sun and has next to no fading or anything. I would rate the interior 9 or better on a 1-10 scale. Note: the original radio may work, but I dont believe its hooked up. The exterior of the car is in great condition as well. There is no rust on the car, and the underbody looks great. Suspension and all has been replaced and shows great. The paint is in very good condition but was not done yesterday. All in all I would say the paint on the car is about an 8 on a 1-10 scale. It looks great with no major scratches or dents, but doesnt have the shine you may want for national car shows. It will win some local car shows and grab attention like crazy though! The car has only been driven an estimated 800 miles since restoration! It is taken out weekly to keep things running smooth and charged up! It runs right at 190 degrees and has absolutely NO known mechanical problems! I’d drive it across the state no problem it is 100% reliable. This may be your chance to get one heck of a car at a steal of a price! Please bid to win, but only win if you plan to pay!! If you would like to come inspect it before auction end just send me your number in a message and I will give you a call asap!

With the Car and Driver Ten Best decided, the North American Car and Truck of the Year finalists announced and Cadillac, Ram and Subaru chalking up wins with Motor Trend, it's fair to say that the automotive awards season is in full swing. The next set of trophies to be handed out will be from Ward's Automotive, which has announced the winners of its 2014 10 Best Engines.
The latest contest was marked by the widespread emergence of diesel power and the continued success of turbocharged engines. There was even an electric motor on this year's list. In fact, only three of the ten winners were naturally aspirated and only two winners returned from last year.
"We weren't looking to throw the bums out, as they might say about an election. We were just really impressed with the flood of new powertrains," said Ward's Automotive Editor-in-Chief Drew Winter. Those new powertrains include the 83-kilowatt electric motor from the Fiat 500e, the 1.0-liter, EcoBoost three-cylinder from the Ford Fiesta and the 2.0-liter turbodiesel from the Chevrolet Cruze.

They're pretty darn similar. And yet our views are oh so different.
If you guys could read the transcripts of our editors' chat room, you'd know that we're a pretty argumentative bunch. It's always good-spirited stuff (well, usually), but when we're not obsessively covering this or that, we're usually fighting about one car being better than another. We're all enthusiasts here, and our automotive tastes run the gamut from the weird and unusual to the decidedly mainstream - we all feel strongly about specific cars in a given segment. While it usually makes for good conversation, if we're passionate enough, it can turn into a tomato-throwing showdown.
On the surface, there's very little that the Ford Fiesta ST and Toyota GT86 (or the Scion FR-S that is sold in the US, or the largely similar Subaru BRZ) share in common. One is a hatchback with power coming from a turbocharged engine routed to the front wheels. The other is a coupe with power coming from a naturally aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine routed to the rear wheels.
Thing is, both of them are reasonably priced performance cars aimed at a similar segment of the automotive marketplace, so a comparison isn't out of the question. It is with all of this in mind that we direct you to the video below, in which the blokes from Evo pit the two manic little machines against one another on a race track. The result? Well, it can be summed up this way: Fast versus fun.
See how the track battle goes down in the video below.
