Unbelievable Machine

I finally got my dream car: a Black 2012 Mustang GT with the Brembo Package, 3.73 rear end, and the MT-82 manual 6-speed. After the suggested break in period, I took my car to the local Drag Strip to see what it was made of. After an evening being consistently in the high 12-second range, I finished my night strong with a 12.60 @ 113.60 mph! Read more…


My First Car

When I first got my 1987 F150 i thought it was the best truck ever. Problem was with my financial situation, I needed something smaller, newer and more fuel efficient. i browsed through the local classifieds and I found this lovely little gem; a 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX with the Limited Edition package.

Gonna Miss My Truck

Hi, my name is Carlos. I just wanted to inform you of my positive experiences I’ve had with my Ford f-350. It was my steady working truck. I used it to do all sorts of tasks that required heavy duty power. I am forever a Ford truck guy because of the reliability. I will always stick with your brand of truck. I can’t fathom to bring myself to look at other brands. Unfortunately for me, I recently had to sell my f-350 dually due to the economy. I could not afford it anymore. Read more…

Your Ideas

Move Cruise Control

I just bought a F-150 super crew eco-boost and when I have to use the cruise control, I always have to look down low to see the control switches for the cruise. why not move that part up on top of the steering wheel on each side of the air bag which would make the controls easier to use and see. Read more…

Sync Event Sounds

Here's an idea for the geeks among us.. driver-modifiable sounds that a vehicle with Sync could play upon certain events, such as engine start or stop. Replaceable warning sounds could be part of this; imagine being able to replace your 'key in ignition' chime or 'headlight minder' nag. Read more…

Auto-targeting Side Mirrors

I see a few suggestions for blind spot sensors, but nothing for something that would actively minimize blind spots. What about mirrors with sensors that could detect a vehicle in the adjacent lane, and automatically adjust the mirror angle on the horizontal plane to keep the vehicle in view as long as possible?

Bid on This Custom Mustang Boss 302

On Saturday, October 15, a very unique 2012 Mustang will be on the block at a live auction during the Get Your Heart Racing benefit on the Ford test track at the Dearborn Development Center in Michigan. The one-of-a-kind Boss 302 Laguna Sega is painted in the same School Bus Yellow color you motorsports fans will know from the Boss 302 that Parnelli Jones drove to victory in the 1970 Trans-Am Championship. But you might say this car has a bit more heart. Read more…


Exploring Some of America’s Best Parks with a Ford Explorer

It’s easy to be cynical about Yellowstone National Park. Sometimes – perhaps for most visitors – the place comes off a lot like Disneyland. After all, most folks drive from one part of the park to another on the “grand loop,” a 140-mile road system that allows visitors to pop in and out of their cars to take in a view or, most often, snap pictures of wildlife that has grown so used to homo sapiens that they – the animals, not the humans – show no hesitancy about crossing roads or grazing within a few feet of the awestruck tourists.

What Ford and Six Other Automakers Agree on May Surprise You

Ah, to be a fly on the wall when Ford, GM, Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche and Volkswagen decided to have a sit-down – maybe somewhere off the radar, like the Olive Garden? – to discuss electric vehicles in the United States and Europe. Would they agree on things? Would the conversation veer off into discussing technologies coming in future vehicles? Would Porsche order the Never Ending Pasta Bowl? Read more…
