It has small scratches and minor dings. The tires are road worthy but have some surface tears in side wall. When the tail gate is lowered there is a horizontal metal strip which has rusted through. Tail gate and bed works without issue. The A/C is ice cold but works only on the high fan speeds. The power door locks unlock the drivers side not the passenger side. All else works as it should, Truck runs great."

This has been my truck since 2000 when I purchased it new here in NJ.  It has served me well, I hauled my carpentry tools in it back and forth from the Princeton area to Staten Island. I needed a van for more tool storage which is why I'm selling it. This PU truck has never been driven by anyone else but me and I treated it kindly. It has never been in any kind of an accident nor has it seen a flood. It is very clean inside and out. You can still see a shadow of my business logo on the drivers and passenger door. If you are applying a logo or partial wrap to the door you will no longer see it. The engine runs perfectly with no leaks or hesitation. Its strong and steady. I have a heavy duty 2" hitch on the truck and the hookups for your trailer lights. I primarily used the hitch for a T like bed extender to carry very long lumber, never pulled anything heavy with the truck. 4 wheel drive works great and is operated by a knob on the dashboard. Its electronic and fully automatic. The interior is free of any tears or defects. The carpets have been protected by tub type heavy duty mats that hold quarts of water. The mats are fitted for this truck and are easily removed or changed the carpet underneath is like new. Radio sounds great. No mechanical noises coming from the truck that shouldn't be there accept a rattle from a loose heat shield. The bed is lined with a tough liner and there is a nice roll away cover from TruXcedo that uses industrial hook and loop closer. Breaks are recently (12mo) changed. 


Here are the defects:
  • It has small scratches and minor dings as you would expect from a vehicle born in 2000. The body is in great condition other wise. 
  • The tires are road worthy and have good tread but have some surface tears in side wall. 
  • One of the rear tires has a slow leak
  • When the tail gate is lowered there is a horizontal metal strip which has rusted through in two spots. This doesn't seem to affect anything.  Tail gate and bed works without issue. 
  • The A/C is ice cold but works only on the high fan speeds. 
  • The power door locks unlock the drivers side not the passenger side.  They lock both doors.

Car companies used to cook up sales with recipe books

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 08:45:00 EST

The evolution of automotive marketing has undergone a number of strange phases. Few, though, match the strangeness of the 1930s to 1950s, when automotive marketers turned to cookbooks as a means of promoting their vehicles. Yes, cookbooks. We can't make this stuff up, folks.
This bizarre trend led to General Motors distributing cookbooks under the guise of its then-subsidiary Frigidaire. Ford, meanwhile, offered a compilation of recipes from Ford Credit Employees (shown above). The cookbook-craze wasn't limited to domestic manufacturers, though. As The Detroit News discovered, both Rolls-Royce and Volkswagen got in on the trend, although not until the 1970s.
The News has the full story on this strange bit of marketing. Head over and take a look.

Ford shares falling on news of lower-than-expected profits next year

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 15:31:00 EST

Ford has released projections for its 2013 profits, along with predictions of its 2014 earnings, and the news has forced the company's stock to stumble, falling over seven percent as of this writing. The Blue Oval is expecting earnings of $8.34 billion for 2013, although the bulk of that is coming largely from its North American operations, as troubles abroad continue to take a toll.
Calling 2013 an "outstanding" year, Ford expects its revenue to be up about 10 percent, thanks to gains in market share everywhere but Europe. But it's 2014 predictions that are causing stock prices to fall, as the Dearborn-based manufacturer expects pre-tax profits to fall to $7 to $8 billion, because of troubles in both Europe and South America, according to a report from Reuters. This is despite an expansion plan that will see it open an additional factory in the southern hemisphere, as well as two plants in China, all in a bid to launch 23 new or refreshed products next year.
The issues in South America aren't so much related to a fall in sales - Ford expects improved profits in Brazil and Argentina - but because of currency devaluations in Venezuela that are projected to cost it around $350 million. While that would still allow it to break even with 2013, Ford cites continued economic risks that could push losses even higher.

2013 Shelby 1000 unleashes its 1,200 horsepower ahead of NY show reveal

Fri, 22 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

True story: Last fall, I had the opportunity to spend a week with Ford's new 2013 Shelby GT500 - the Blue Oval's factory Mustang with 662 horsepower and 631 pound-feet of torque. It's an amazing beast, to be sure. I'm not sure if it was Michigan's damp streets strewn with potholes and wet leaves, but at no point did I ever say to myself, "You know, Ford is on to a really good thing here, but what it really needs is about twice the power." And yet, for people in warmer climes with infrastructure in better nick - or for those whose muscle cars live their lives out on the track, there's apparently sufficient demand to warrant just such a beast.
Quick studies will recall that Shelby American launched its 1000 last year to commemorate its 50th anniversary, but it is returning to the New York Auto Show with a fresh version based on the 2013 GT500 I drove. The 2013 Shelby 1000 whips up 1,200 horsepower on pump gas thanks to beefed-up forced induction, engine internals and cooling. Wisely, it also incorporates an adjustable suspension and big brake package to make sure those ponies have the best chance being safely deployed to the ground.
What price the world's most powerful "production" muscle car? $154,995 for starters - donor GT500 not included. What, no convertible variant?
