Engine Of The Day: Ford Thriftpower Six

The great thing about this series is that we're nowhere near running out of engines that were made by the millions, for decades. Ford's workhorse I6 racked up close to a quarter-century of front-line service, from 1960 to 1984. » 12/06/09 4:00pm 12/06/09 4:00pm
