5.0l Vin Code F

I recently took delivery of my new F150, new Ford #16 for me. The other day I was getting my 1985 Mustang GT ready for winter storage and I realized that both the Mustang and the F150 are powered by 5.0L engines identified in the VIN (vehicle identification number) by the letter F. It’s amazing how far technology has come in 25 years. Read more…


New Guinness World Record

Hello, my name is Brian Jackson. I am a full time motivational speaker and now six-time Guinness World Record Holder. My latest attempt on July 23 of this year (2011) consisted of a rescue bag and a Ford Festiva. We placed the rescue bag under the Festiva and blew into the rescue bag, using only my lung strength. The attempt was to raise the car off the ground using only my breath. Read more…


My Little Pony

Last August I got the opportunity to purchase a car that I’ve dreamed about as a kid. I never thought that I’d ever get this combination: a 5.0L, BLUE, manual transmission convertible. Well, one popped up in Kentucky for a great price. I took a trip to go look at it, and knew I’d be back. The car was located about 280 miles from where I live, so knew it would be taking a chance driving the pony home. However, the car was 100% stock, and being a 302, I KNEW it would make it. And it did! Read more…


An Accidental Mustang Owner

I got into Mustangs completely by accident. I run a company in England renting out classic British sports cars and have never really been into Fords other than my first car a 1968 Ford Corsair. When the latest Mustang came out we started receiving requests from people wanting to hire a classic Mustang. Up to that point I hadn’t thought of buying one One day when collecting one of our cars from my local garage there was a nice 1966 Mustang Fastback parked outside. Read more…


I'm A Ford Fusion

It’s the car-related question that absolutely stumped this car guy: If I were a car, what would I be? Guys, let’s be honest. There are few places left in the world that are still sacred for us. Where can men go to think, to ponder the significance of our lives, or to read a decent magazine? We’re pretty much confined to the garage or the bathroom. And the lighting in my garage isn’t that great. Read more…

Personalized Key Fobs

It would be a nice treat for customers to be able to personalize the key fobs that come with their new vehicles by allowing them to choose a custom design (e.g. zebra print, floral, paisley, etc), color, sports team or even a personal photograph. Read more…

Gas Gauge & Anti Thief Device

I have thought of two (2) Innovated Ideas for the consumers for when they purchase gas for their vehicles. As a Ford F150 Owner myself I wonder how much gas I place in my tank every time I go to the station and to alleviate that doubt I have thought why not place a small yet readable flat gas gauge on the inside part of the small gas door. Read more…

SHO Badge

Add an SHO badge to the line up. Not just for brand new owners but for all SHO owners from day 1 to present. Maybe even a few SHO badges to choose from. Read more…

See These Custom Fords Before Anyone Else!

The entertainment industry has its annual big-deal shindigs, like the Academy Awards, the Emmys and the Tonys. Yet so does the auto industry, but the cars are the stars!

SEMA stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association; the CliffsNotes on that is it’s a trade association made up of tons of aftermarket performance companies, from exhaust to bumpers and tires to roof racks, plus anything and everything else located between the headlights and taillights.

Technology in the 2013 Ford Explorer May be Better than a Cup of Coffee

While the warning light in the dash will be shaped like a cup of coffee, the technology in the 2013 Ford Explorer may be a lot more valuable. Ford is introducing new lane keeping technologies, including a system that can help detect drowsy drivers, to help them stay alert and in their lane. The innovative Lane Keeping System has three unique features designed to help drivers stay in control behind the wheel: Driver Alert System, Lane Keeping System and Lane Keeping Aid. Read more…


Want to be the First to Drive an EcoBoost?

Here’s your chance – The EcoBoost Drive it First program is coming to more than 20 U.S. cities, and we’re putting you in the driver’s seat! Read more…


Tell Us Why You Love Your Ford Explorer!

From the stories we read on, we know there are very satisfied Explorer owners out there, and the numbers tell the same story. The Explorer is the fastest-growing midsize utility in the nation, with more than 100,000 sold this year alone! This is the first time it has surpassed the 100,000-sales mark since 2007. And another exciting number? U.S. retail sales of the Explorer are up 290 percent compared to the same period in 2010. Read more…


The Truck of Texas is a Ford

There’s a state flag, a state bird and, believe it or not, a state folk dance (square dancing outshines the chicken dance, surprisingly). So, what about a state truck? Well, the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) has named the 2012 Ford F-150 the Truck of Texas! Read more…
