Ford has a small problem. 1.33 million Ford Explorers, primarily police fleet vehicles, are under scrutiny for making the inhabitants sick from Carbon Monoxide poisoning. That’s serious shit.

July 31st, 2017 by admin

When the fleet level installation of police equipment occurred in Explorers, the holes in the floor weren’t sealed right. That lets in engine exhaust.

Plus, U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said it recently learned that the police version of the 2011-2017 Ford Explorer was experiencing exhaust manifold cracks.

The city of Austin, Texas said Friday it was removing all 400 of the city’s Ford Explorer SUVs from use.

More than 60 Austin officers filed workers compensation claims in the last five months, citing exposure to carbon monoxide.

I had no idea John Lasseter was a train owner… he bought the steam locomotive that once belonged to Ollie Johnson

this happened because Disneyland restored and re-opened the Disneyland Railroad

Disneyland’s classic attraction was closed in January 2016 so construction could start on Galaxy’s Edge: The “Star Wars” land, which will open in 2019, needed 14 acres, at least some of which was carved out of the Frontierland wilderness.

That meant a new route for the railroad, which re-opened on Friday, July 28. John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Disney Animation and Pixar, was among those happy for its return.

John M. Stephens bought the first Silver Ghost in 1906, and commissioned this 1912 Silver Ghost Double Pullman Limousine, having former royal carriage-maker Barker’s of Mayfair make the body to a level of luxury few cars have ever reached

July 31st, 2017 by admin

Recently auctioned for £4,705,500, making it the most expensive Rolls-Royce ever sold at auction,

Possibly the most magnificent Rolls-Royce ever built: Its gleaming interior fittings are made of silver and ivory, while the door panels are embroidered silk, with brocade tassels attached to silk window shades for privacy.

The passenger footrest hides a full picnic set for four, a china tea service, complete with an alcohol-fuelled burner and kettle to heat the water, and a set of six decanters – three in sterling silver and three in leather-wrapped glass.

Unlike most car enthusiasts of his time, Mr Stephens, asked the makers not to include a glass division window between the driver and the passengers as he wanted to drive it himself rather than rely on a chauffeur.

Mr Stephens’s car is believed to be the only one of its kind to survive with its full interior and bodywork, as many Rolls-Royces from the era were converted into ambulances during the First World War.

The first overhead valve engine, was a Buick

Strange to learn that an also ran company like Buick, that never lead the field in luxury, sports, sedans, or concepts, lead the world in engines.

Once.

David Buick teamed up with the inventor, Walter Marr, who created the OHV in 1900, and by 1904 was producing a flat twin OHV, but later that year they went under, and were bought out by Durant.

Of course, the 455 GSX was a monster, and the GN turbo 6 is a legend. But in over 100 years, they didn’t get Buick out of the shadow of GM

this Challenger spent 30 years in a garage in Bridgeport Connecticut

15 years ago Chuck found an ad in a newspaper, for this car and a 1969 Hemi, both for 18k, or jsut the car for 3 thou.

The owner had been hanging onto the car for his kid, but instead of the expected happy response to being offered a cool car, the kid called it a ratty old car.

So the guy finally let it go.

It left the factory as a Super Track Pack 440 6 pack, but oddly, it wasn’t outfitted with 15 inch rims as all Super Track Pack cars were supposed to

this car didn’t work very well from the factory, so when the Dick Landy traveling clinic came to a nearby dealership, this car was taken in for some professional help

Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle’s recently completed 1967 Chevelle … not many cone killer Chevelle’s are on the track. I’m hoping they get this into the Optima Challenge

A track-tuned suspension from Ridetech uses American Racing wheels, Wilwood brakes, and Nitto NT05 tires, with 245/40R18 front and 295/35R18 rear. Inside the car is a Ride Tech Tiger Cage.

over 600 Hp with an Camaro ZL1 charge cooler lid on a GM crate motor 6.2l, it’s used in the second-generation Cadillac CTS-V range as well as the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, but it’s mass produced in Mexico, not hand built like the LS9, and that’s backed by a Tremec 6 speed, and Moser 9-inch with the Chevelle’s factory four-link mounting

40 years since it was set aside, and the last 20 have been on a lift…. just waiting for the money to be available to get it back into running condition, the way it was when he bought it at age 16
