    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Ok I won't get in to the whole story as to why I have ended up with this thing but I can tell you that it is an all original 1979 Ford Thunderbird with a 302 engine & just 26,400 miles on it......I am still not sure what to make of this strange bird in my Cadillac barn. Its going to be for sale...
  2. How to Wreck a Ford GT

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I figured some of the track junkies would get a kick out of this. I'm taking the V out next, lets hope the extra weight slows me down a tad. There was no damage to the GT, other than a lot of grass and a broken rear diffuser. I had the GT wrapped two days before this incident so I don't even...
  3. 1954 Ford Bus with Caddy 425

    500, 472, 425, 368
    My uncle gave me the bus he's had since 1974. It currently has a Caddy 425 in it. I am told that the motor came from a Hearse. What years would this motor have been offered? I need to replace the head gaskets, valve seals, and lifters. What are my options for intake manifolds with this motor...

  5. Neighbor traded in her Deville for a Ford Fusion Hybrid! WTF!?!

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    So I look across the yard this morning as I'm enjoying my morning cig and my neighbor pulls up in a light blue Ford Fusion Hybrid. I ask her, "Where's the Caddy?" She says, "I traded it in for this." WTF! :eek: an 04 DTS for a Ford Fusion Hybrid? What is the world coming to?

  13. Ford Pinto gas tank

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    :bomb:Is anyone like me, worried by the fact that the battery sits right next to the fuel filler neck and just above the gas tank. This sounds like a recipe for disaster like the Ford Pinto's exploding gas tank. I'm sure glad there are connections under the hood for jump starting the car , I...
  14. 472 in a 39 Ford?

    500, 472, 425, 368
    I have access to a 472 and a 39 Ford Coupe with original frame, and am wondering how much is involved in marrying them together? 472 is connected to stock TH400. The other option is to go with a standard SBC or Ford. How much more work will be required to shoehorn the 472 in vs a small...

    Heh, I don't mean to put Jesda's Ford truck to shame or anything but I purchased a mean little Ford truck myself :histeric:. It's a 2000 Ford Ranger. I bought it for $300 in "unknown" running condition from a public auction and it turns out the 3.0 is seized. Anyone know anything about these...
  18. New toy. Ford truck.

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I was looking around for a Ranger and I'm glad I didn't buy it. My roommate's friend works at a GM dealer and told him about a truck they had, a 2006 F150 XLT 5.4 with 36,000 miles. He traded in his Acura, which at 118k was due for a timing belt, needed brakes, needed a water pump, and had a...

    Most people here probably know that I'm a "car" enthusiast and I don't dislike vehicles based on where they're made or which country owns the company that makes them. I like the Toyota Avalon, Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.. However, this Ford Taurus looks better than all of them. It's been a...
