Lincoln Tries To Fool Media With Supercar Tires

This Old Motown Video Was Shot On A Running Mustang Assembly Line

In case you didn't realize the "Mo" in "Motown" stood for "motor" as in "motor cars" (and not Moravian, since Detroit's Moravian population is actually surprisingly small), this 1965 video should be clear everything up.

Lincoln Is Screwed And Jimmy Fallon Won't Save Them

Ford's been on an amazing streak building great cars that manage to sell to the masses. It's been a single brand turnaround that deserves all the praise we've been giving it. Ford's "premium" Lincoln brand is entirely made up of rebadged Fords that are slightly nicer and unreasonably more expensive. It's been a… » 12/03/12 3:40pm 12/03/12 3:40pm

Is The Ford Focus ST The Archduke Of Hot Hatches?

The Ford Focus ST may not be a true "RS"-grade hatchback, but it does come close in spec (and for once, we get it in the U.S.). But is the ST enough to show up the latest overseas-only hot-hatch competition? » 11/26/12 3:30pm 11/26/12 3:30pm

Trade Anything, Even Carpet Scraps, For A Ford This Black Friday!

Normally, I treat Black Friday the same way I treat Tu Bishvat— I've heard of it, know generally what it's about, but leave the actual observance to the harder core Jews or consumers. This year, however, I saw something that makes me much, much more interested in the "holiday": this ad, from a Ford dealer in Laramie,… » 11/20/12 4:30pm 11/20/12 4:30pm

How the California Highway Patrol Swapped Crown Vics for Volvos — Almost

We're all trying to come to terms with the fact Ford Crown Victorias won't be sneaking up behind us on the highway. And by coming to terms, I mean slowing down just about anytime you see something in the shape of a Crown Vic. Some day, they're all going to be gone and we're going to be left guessing if our state's… » 11/11/12 1:00pm 11/11/12 1:00pm

We got some awfully depressing news this week when Ford announced its acclaimed Boss 302 Mustang won't be making a comeback for 2014. Ford says they only ever planned to make the Boss 302 for two years all along, just like they did with the original in the 1960s. » 11/10/12 1:30pm 11/10/12 1:30pm

This Modified Ford Thunderbird Was Handed Down Through Generations

The 1955 Thunderbird was Ford's answer to the Corvette. It had less European influence, and didn't quite obtain the same racing pedigree (and the Battlebird was pretty sweet.) It also outsold the Corvette of the era, though keeps a lower profile these days. » 11/08/12 4:30pm 11/08/12 4:30pm
