Ok, I've got a 1928-1931 ford truck rat rod project. There is no title because I havent gotten that far. The cab, frame, and bed were built by a Heath at New Metal Kustoms in Kentucky. The motor is a 1950's ford 223ci straight six along with a matching three speed trans from the same vehicle that the motor is from. I personally have dissassembled and fully checked the internals. The internals of the motor have been magnafluxed and all is great with the motor. I do not have a yoke for the trans but do have a drive shaft to fit the crown vic rear end. The front axle is from a 1930 ford model a, front brakes are from a 1955 ford f100 with new bearings and seals. The spindles are from a 1938 ford truck. I have split the wish bones and welded in new bungs and threaded heim joints. The split wish bones are from a 1938 ford truck. The motor mounts are made by myself and are tacked in quite well. There is no trans mount made yet. Transmission shift into all gears with the new Mr. Gasket three speed shifter. I have two steering wheels and shafts that go with the truck. One is from the same 1938 ford truck, and the other is from a Jeep that I found in the junk yard. I also have the dash from the old jeep that's been cut down. Speedo guage is still in the dash from the jeep. It gives that vintage feel having the large speedo. There is a front grill from a 1929 ford that I was going to use to hold the radiator and also goes with the truck. The rear end is from a crown vic and the emergency cables are still attached. The truck has no interior.The wheels and tires are original to a 50's merc and are 16x4 with a 3.5 inch white wall. Ive got two vega steering boxes to go with the project. I've got bolts holding on the front axle but it will need the correct perches to be installed. The cab is a slant roof with speed holes cut in the visor. Mini Bear Claw latches are installed for the doors to lock shut. The gas tank is an spun aluminum 15 galon tank that is mounted in the rear of the truck. I wish that I had time to finish but that isnt the case. If you have questions or requests for additional pic's just let me know.

Ford's board is open to CEO Alan Mulally stepping down before his planned departure in 2014, inside sources are telling Reuters. Ford's plan of succession, aside from who would be his actual successor, has been something approaching common knowledge - the 68-year-old former Boeing exec had plans to stay through 2014. This was recently confirmed by Mulally himself on Bloomberg Television and in Automotive News.
Sun, 31 Mar 2013 15:01:00 EST
Motivation for the about-face comes from what Reuters calls a "growing confidence" in the current crop of Ford execs, led by Mark Fields. Fields, Ford's current chief operating officer, has been tipped as Mulally's ultimate successor, although he's far from the only person with eyes on Ford's top job. Normally, Ford's board saying they're open to an executive, that's done very well for the company, stepping down early would be nearly unremarkable. It's the timing of this announcement, though, that makes this a big piece of news.
Recently, Mulally has been the subject of rumors that he's interested in taking the CEO position at tech giant Microsoft. The Redmond, Washington-based company's CEO, Steve Ballmer, told the media in August that he'd be retiring in a year's time. The fires were stoked when tech website AllThingsD speculated that Mulally would take the top spot, despite denials from the man himself. Could Ford's current boss become the new top dog at Microsoft? Will Mark Fields replace him? Could recently departed Renault exec Carlos Tavares land at Ford in some capacity? Let us know what you think below in Comments.
Ford is recalling certain 2012 Taurus, 2013 Explorer and 2012 Lincoln MKS models over fuel tank concerns. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, vehicles built between July 19, 2011 and March 15, 2012 may have been built with fuel tanks that have a "marginally sealed seam" on the side. Those seams may not provide the strength necessary to protect the tank from rupture during a collision. They may also leak. The recall covers a total of 3,037 vehicles. NHTSA says that leaked fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, could easily cause a fire.

Dealers will inspect the tanks and replace them as need be free of charge. Owners can expect to be notified once the campaign begins on or around April 22, 2013. You can read the full NHTSA recall notice below for more information.
Back in July, a mid-year study from YouGov found Ford to have higher brand perception than any other company in the US. While Ford failed to top the year-end study, it still has plenty to brag about. The final BrandIndex report shows that online retail giant Amazon edged out Ford for the top ranking, while Subway, the History Channel and Lowe's rounded out the top five spots.
For Ford, it's still an improvement from sixth place in the 2012 study, and, more importantly, it dominated other automakers in terms of brand perception with a clear advantage over Toyota, Honda, Chevy and Volkswagen. To determine how well - or not so well - a brand is perceived, YouGov uses a Buzz score that asks respondents whether they've "heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth" and whether it was positive or negative. While it isn't clear how many respondents were included, YouGov does point out that Ford had a strong presence in social media, advertising and newsworthy toward the end of the year.
