Hey everyone, I'm sad to see it go but I'm selling my 1990 35th Anniversary Thunderbird SC. The car runs and drives perfectly fine. Just had it out today, (3/9) to make sure everything was working properly. The motor and supercharger are strong and the trans is shifting fine. One hose clamp needs to be replaced to the water pump, slight leak. The car has been in storage since November. The paint is good except for a few spots of rot, nothing major as you can see in pictures. The interior plastics are becoming separated from age, nothing is cracked though. It is only present on the dash and a door panel. Minor wear inside the car is present but nothing major. The back seats have some minor stains in the suede but I believe it can be cleaned. Any other problem areas I have show in the pictures. Please email me with any questions you may have, or come see it!
New crank sensor
New brakes all around including new rear calipers
Tires are 75% Goodyear Eagle RSA's
Wheels repainted a few years ago
3 1/2 inch cold air intake (I have the original parts)
The rear ride control is not functioning, It is stuck on firm setting (does not affect driving)
The cruise control is not turning on, possibly a fuse but I'm not sure
The original head unit is blown but I still have it
The gauges need to be replaced because the tachometer is not reading properly.
Right rear speaker is blown as well as factory subwoofer.
Soaring Spirit book
Factory Floor mats in plastic
Factory suede cleaning kit
Factory car cover still in bag
I'd prefer someone to pick up the car on their own, and I encourage taking a look before bidding.

"Now before you turn away, this is not another boring hybrid car thing..." Despite the slightly defensive introduction from Jay, the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage is actually pretty fascinating. The Ricardo HyBoost is a 2009 Ford Focus that has had a 1.1-liter engine swapped in for the stock 2.0-liter four. That might not get you performance enthusiasts out there fired up, until, that is, you hear that the 1.1L is also fed by both a turbocharger and an electrically driven supercharger for an instant-on "torque-fill" effect. Sounds about right, considering that Ricardo engineering is part of the genius behind the McLaren P1.

Perhaps most exciting of all, the Ricardo folks say that the package should run somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,100. A sort of performance-hybrid that makes sense for the frugal driver and the enthusiast one, then. There's a lot more to the HyBoost, all of which can be seen in the video below.
You will probably remember the ads for the Ford Figo hatchback in India, the ones that showcased the extra large boot of the little hatchback by joking that you can fit three of your enemies in the trunk. One of the ads had Michael Schumacher in the front seat, obviously pleased about having Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso tied up in the back. But the other two had Paris Hilton and ex-Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi up front and three bound and gagged women in the back - in Hilton's case (shown above), it was the Kardashians.

This did not go over well, and Reuters reports that certain employees at JWT India have been fired over the matter. It is also reported that the images weren't actual advertisements, nor were they part of an actual campaign; JWT said they "were never intended for paid publication, were never requested by our Ford client." A JWT rep said the employees who created the ads did so on their own, Ford commented to Automotive News that the ads were "part of a creative exercise intended to test concepts for an advertising competition."
The problem, if the story is to be believed, is that the employees skipped the regular review protocols and uploaded their work to an ad industry site - they were found on Ads of the World. That page, like the employees, has been removed.
Ford has quite a party ready for the Goodwood Festival of Speed starting on June 27. Not only is the 2015 Mustang going to be driving in front of the European public for the first time, the Blue Oval is also unveiling its 2015 refresh for the Focus ST.
Official details about the latest Focus hot hatch are practically nonexistent at this point. Ford's teaser image shows narrower headlights, and the company says that the ST also benefits from the technical and quality improvements from the refreshed standard model, which likely means an even more Aston-Martin-like grille. However, any improvements for the power or handling are a mystery for now.
Ford will even give visitors to the festival the chance to drive the new ST - at least virtually. Gran Turismo 6 kiosks will be on hand with the hot hatch loaded up to race the Goodwood Hill Climb. There will also be real-time races between former Stig Ben Collins in the real ST challenging a player up the hill in the game.
