French aircraft manufacturer Dassault shows off its distinct aircraft product categories in spectacular cinematic fashion! Seeing their nEUROn technology demonstrator unamnned combat air vehicle (UCAV), 4.75 generation Rafale fighter, and the stunning tri-motor Falcon 7X in tight formation is truly drool worthy,…
In 2011, the Ford Ranger was phased out in order to stop the tiny truck from cannibalizing sales from the F150. Ford has claimed their halo truck to be the number one selling pickup truck for as far back as I can remember (24 years apparently). The Detroit firm has come under increasing pressure from its competitors…
The Australian car market is a truly fascinating place. While we love our massive, hulking pickup trucks, the Aussies are perfectly happy in their car-based utes from Ford and Holden. It's like an alternate reality where everyone said, "Why have an F-150 when you can have an El Camino?"
Aggressive plastic surgery to give one the appearance of youth often ends up looking just wrong. Like what you would get if you texted an alien instructions on what a pretty young person would look like. The elements are there– smooth, unwrinkled skin, prominent cheekbones, full lips– but the end result is usually…
Frustratingly, Australia has some wildly great cars that never make it to the US. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ford Falcon did make the trip however, and that means you don't have to get mad, you can get Mad Max.
Even with the world's most powerful computers, there's only so much the brains of the U.S. military can learn about flying at 20 times the speed of sound — 13,000 mph — outside of a real test. That happens today, when the Falcon HTV-2 launches. UPDATE: Anyone seen a hot arrow-shaped plane?
It was 47 years ago today when the Ford Mustang was officially unveiled by Henry Ford II at the World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, New York and simultaneously in dealer showrooms. The world met the pony car and judging by the fact Ford immediately sold almost 22,000 Mustangs, it liked what it saw.
Although this 1964 Ford Ranchero may look like your average vintage Ranchero (if there is such a thing), don't be fooled by your first impression. Under the hood of this unassuming car/truck hybrid lurks an equally unassuming but loud and smelly 198ci Nissan Diesel.
They do things differently "down under". That's why this 1965 Ford Mustang from Australia is powered by a heavily modified four liter turbocharged straight six engine from a Ford Falcon. Watch this odd pony run a 9.96 ¼ mile.
For the 1964 model year the Ford Falcon was all new, inside and out. Equipped with an optional 260 V8, it was the perfect car to go chasing after a kite while wearing a sensible sweater.
After signs that it could be based on the front-wheel-drive Taurus platform (heresy!) or killed altogether, it looks like there could be a future for Australia's affordable rear-wheel-drive sedan after all. That future? The Mustang.
This male koala in southeastern Australia survived being hit by a Ford Falcon at 50 mph and then kept his adorableness for the 10-mile ride to a veterinarian. No word on who let Bindi Irwin drive. (H/t to Kvit!) [NineMSN]
Australians think Ford is secretly telling them a supercharged 5.0 V8 is both awesome and headed their way. [GoAuto]
This F-16 Fighting Falcon kicks up a giant plume of steam and snow as the pilot lifts the nose and the afterburners do their job. Awesome. (Photo Credit: U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Samuel Morse.)
Owners of various Alameda Down On The Street honorees sometimes contact us to let us know how their cars and trucks are doing. Lately, we've heard from a couple who have really spiffed up their rides.
