1966 Ford F250 Crew Cab
This rare Ford F250 Crew Cab also known as a Six Pack back in the 60's came out of Iowa and was used by a company called Higley Construction. It has been highly altered since it showed up at our shop here in Tennessee. We started by converting the now fully boxed chassis to an independent front suspension and a triangulated 4 bar rear. Because of the length of the vehicle we also opted for a two piece drive-shaft to keep from sectioning the floor. The frame has been stepped up in the front and the rear and fully boxed. Also, a set of Firestone air bags were installed at each corner for ride quality. When it came time to pick an air management system to control the suspension we went with the full Accuair setup. This is a self leveling air management system that has direct control of each corner or three preset settings of your choice. Its as easy to program the settings to your liking as it is to set a preset on your radio. It has a 10 gallon air capacity so that you never have to wait on any air pressure, always plenty on demand. Everything has been painted except the exterior of the truck because we liked that it still wore its original paint. Under the hood and inside of the bed were sprayed Wimbledon white for a cleaner look and to give the next owner a jump on an original two tone paint style. The chassis has also been completely painted top to bottom. You can see these details better on the website under the custom projects section along with the rest of the work that was done. The truck rides on a staggered set of 20x8.5'' front and 22x9.5'' rear billet smoothies and Nitto 555 tires. The engine is a stock 302 roller motor with all the goodies and accessories attached to an AOD transmission and 9'' rear. Lokar lines and shifter were used along with an aluminum radiator and fan shroud with electric fans and a billet overflow. Cal custom valve covers, breathers and air cleaner were used to top it off and all of the plumbing was ran with AN fittings. All of the sheet metal work that was in need of repair has been completed and painted. We just cleaned up the interior a little so that the next person could personalize it to their taste. We started with recovering the dash and the seats and adding carpet front to back. The list goes on and on so feel free to come in and see this truck or feel free to give us a call at 615-220-9000 and ask for Brian. We will be happy to scrape the logos off the truck for the winning bidder if he or she chooses. We welcome any third party inspections if you're unable to come see the vehicle before auctions end. I have no idea what the value of this truck is hence the auction format. Please honor this and do not email or call for the reserve price. Bid to own, thanks.

Details about the next-gen Ford Mustang are scarce, and there's even less information out there about the upcoming replacement for the Shelby GT500. Previously rumored to drop the Shelby name and wear the GT350 moniker, the highest-performance Mustang has just been spotted testing near Ford's SVT operations.

Despite being cloaked in heavy camouflage, we can instantly tell this prototype is different from other Mustang spy shots we've seen in the past. Aside from the Shelby-spec wheels, quad exhaust outlets (previous spy shots show only two) and beefier brakes, this car also has air intakes on the hood and front fenders. These elements help to neither prove nor dismiss rumors that the next SVT Mustang will be naturally aspirated. It also looks like Ford is may be planning some changes to this car's rear suspension, as there is some extra camouflage added beneath the rear end of this prototype.
As a bonus, these spy shots also give us our first look inside the new Mustang, revealing a new steering wheel (with more buttons) and a glimpse of the dual-pod instrument gauges. Check out past spy shots of the 2015 Mustang showing off its new face and driving around town.
For a long time, being a line worker for one of the Detroit Three has meant living with an uncertain future. With the health of American automakers on the rise, though, things are also starting to look up for the men and women building the cars. The latest sign that things aren't bad? Big profit-sharing checks.
Sat, 24 Aug 2013 20:00:00 EST
According to The Detroit News, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler could end up paying over $800 million to 130,000 workers as part of a profit-sharing plan. According to The News, the economic impact of these profits in Michigan alone could exceed $400 million, besting the NFL's Super Bowl, MLB's All-Star Game and the NHL's Winter Classic for their economic impact.
This is the third straight year the Detroit Three have issued profit-sharing checks to UAW employees, and for many workers, the checks are as close as they'll get to a raise, due to the most recent contract between the union and the manufacturers. On average, employees at GM and Ford receive $1 for every $1 million in North American (not just the US) pre-tax profits. Chrysler, meanwhile, gets a similar deal, although the Auburn Hills-based company calculates profit sharing using 85 percent of the brand's global profits.
For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.
What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"
