Rare Model A Ford US Mail Car.
Saw this cool looking US mail car from the 1930's today in a private
collection. It was used to deliver mail during the harsh Nabraska winters.
The owner said there was two of these built back in the day. It looks like
a Model A coupe body sitting on a 1 Ton model AA frame and running gear. It
would be fun to take for a spin.
2015 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ vs 2015 Ford Expedition Platinum
2015 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ vs 2015 Ford Expedition Platinum
The Tahoe follows the path of the latest Chevy Silverado 1500, borrowing
its updated boxed frame and 5.3-liter small-block V-8 with aluminum
block-and-head construction, direct fuel injection, variable valve timing,
and cylinder deactivation. Its 355 horsepower and 383
pound-feet of torque motivate a stylish, if conventional, rig that stands
apart from the donor pickup with more of its own sheetmetal and rear coils
instead of leaf springs. In a first for the ute, even its front doors are
different from the Silverado’s. http://www.autoblackzone.com/
There’s still a rudimentary solid axle slung under the rear, but new
Magnetic Ride Control dampers (exclusive to range-topping LTZ models like
our 4x4 test truck) help manage nearly three tons of SUV with commendable
poise. A fresh interior design similar to the Silverado’s welcomes
occupants with soft materials, vibrant digital readouts, and all-day
All that comes at a price, though, with our example starting at $64,530
before adding the $500 Max Trailering package (3.42:1 axle ratio,
trailer-brake controller, upgraded Z71 suspension, and two-speed transfer
case) and $400 20-inch chrome wheels. Entry-level Expeditions start a
couple grand less than a base Tahoe ($44,585 versus $46,745, respectively),
but the top-spec Platinum 4x4 seen here stickered at $64,365, including
$2180 for massive 22-inch polished aluminum wheels.
Unlike the Tahoe, the F-150–based Expedition has changed little since
its last refresh in 2007. Yet even it employs a modern independent rear
suspension. And we would be remiss if we failed to mention that it gains a
few new tricks for 2015: three-way adjustable dampers that come with the
big rollers, as well as a standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 making 365 horsepower at 5000 rpm and
420 pound-feet of torque at 2500 rpm. In addition to new lighting elements
and subtle exterior sculpting, there’s a revised instrument panel and
steering wheel, dual 4.2-inch readouts in the cluster, and a reworked
center stack housing an available eight-inch screen for MyFord Touch
Knowing that owners often take these trucks on fall-color treks to vacation
cottages, we hit the test track and then set course for scenic Ludington,
Michigan, on the sandy coast of our state’s eponymous lake. For good
measure, we also contacted Four Winns Boats in Cadillac, Michigan, which
lent us a gleaming-new Signature H260 ski boat and trailer ($115,976).
Hauling this 26-foot-long, 7000-pound payload out of the water for the
season was an ideal—and realistic—challenge for these titans. Both
trucks were thoroughly engineered for the voyage and didn’t disappoint,
though only one returned the winner.

FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
2009 Ford Expedition. Although large, truck-based SUVs like the Ford
Expedition may be declining in popularity, there remains a need for
vehicles with their capabilities. In the Expedition, Ford hopes to meet or
exceed that need and, not incidentally, hold onto its share of the market.
The Expedition offers what a big SUV should: three rows of seats, cavernous
cargo space, and lots of towing capacity. For more new car reviews,
interviews and automotive news visit http://www.kbb.com today.

2008 Ford Expedition Funkmaster Flex Edition
"Urban automotive enthusiasts?" says Newport Nancy with an air of confusion
in her voice. "Hell, I'd drive that."
And just like that it occurred to us that in addition to the urban
automotive enthusiasts that Ford plans to reach with the 2008 Ford
Expedition Funkmaster Flex Edition, there's likely another undiscovered
market for just such a vehicle: the women of Orange County, California.
