Up for sale is my dads 1930 model A four door .It was restored back in 1975 with having a complete frame off done. The inside of the car was done by my mom and paint and body work by my dad.The car runs good and drives good I put on around 500 miles back in 2008 but has been sitting in the Garage since .So this is why it is up for sale.I do know that the blind back was limited to the first couple of months in 1930 . It retains all it oraginal parts except for a leak less water pump. It will need a set of tires and most likely a battery . I just got it running this past week put some fresh gas and changed the oil and charged the battery and it fired up after cranking a litte. The radiator was taken out in 2007 and boiled and checked and when this was done new hoses and the new water pump put on. There are some chips in the paint and some dings and back pass fender is bent and ding above the rear window. So if looking for a nice car to just drive or a good canidate to restore this would be perfict .It also comes with five extra rims with tires . The ones on the car hold air but are dry rotted but they have tubes . My dad did belong to the IL restores club and retored with all the correct parts not any repop parts like they have now . So if have any questions please emai me email@example.com . Also the horn on the light bar on the pass side does not go with car it is for my 29.
In a change of pace from the high-end vehicles that often appear in Jay Leno's Garage, Ford sends its hottest hatchback (in the US, at least), the 252-horsepower Focus ST, to be featured on Leno's show. Accompanying the five-door hatch is its chief engineer, Jamal Hameedi.
Riding on stylish 18-inch wheels with summer tires and with a spoiler that doubles as a lunch tray, Hameedi and Leno walk us through the finer points of what makes the ST special, which also includes bigger brakes, torque vectoring, a manual transmission and, of course, 252 hp and 270 pound-feet of torque from the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which is made possible by 21 psi of turbocharged boost.
Watch the video below to see what Leno thinks of the global Focus ST.

As difficult as it is to write this, I was actually excited about the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid. With the beautiful looks of the newest midsize fighter from Ford and a fuel economy estimate capable of shaming even the stalwart Camry Hybrid, the battery-augmented four-door seemed like a recipe for unabashed success. But appearances love nothing more than swapping our boundless enthusiasm for cold platters of disappointment. The 2013 Fusion Hybrid gets hobbled right out of the gate with a lofty price tag, and real-world driving keeps the sedan from even approaching those EPA figures.
With so many excellent midsize hybrids on the market, is there any reason to consider the newest Fusion Hybrid? Are sharp aesthetics, a well-executed interior and capable driving dynamics enough to overcome the machine's shortfalls? Not from where I'm standing.
How does one make fast, loud, drifting cars better? Well, you can add more fast, loud, drifting cars or you can add lasers. Either or, really. In this case, Castrol did the right thing and added both, creating a highly stylized commercial for its Edge Titanium motor oil starring South African racer Adrian Zaugg, BMW factory driver Augusto Farfus, Audi DTM and Le Mans staple Mike Rockenfeller and some bloke named Ken Block.
Their cars? No surprise, but Block is in his Ford Fiesta GRC, while Zaugg samples a Lamborghini Aventador and Farfus and Rockenfeller drive along party lines, with a BMW M4 and an Audi R8, respectively. And those cars look good, too, thanks to the creative light and laser work on display.
Take a look below for the video from Castrol.
