2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost. Easy Cap. Capless Fuel System.
No Cap. No sweat. Just as safe if not safer with this new capless system. Saves time and money. This Truck Has a 26 Gallon Tank. Side Note: New EcoBoost does not need to run on high octane or racing fuel. most people would think because of the power and 2 turbos you would need it. wouldnt hurt anything. but racing octane is almost a waste. we keep it right in the middle with 89 octane (mid range). There is no requirements for grade fuel other than at least 87 octane. We always put mig range in with The 01, 04, 07 F-150's. All 3 Had 5.4L Triton V8's.

1956 Continental Mark II Convertible
1956 Continental Mark II - An American Rolls Royce The new 1956 Continental Mark II was the most luxurious and elegant American car available, designed to recapture the spirit of the great classics of the prewar period—with prices to match. The Mark II sold for $10,000, the equivalent of a new Rolls-Royce or two Cadillacs. In spite of this, Ford estimated they still lost over a thousand dollars per car on the 3,000 that were built. The Continental Mark II was the elite automobile of the 1950s' rich and famous: Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Louie Prima, Dwight Eisenhower, Barry Goldwater, Spike Jones, Nelson Rockefeller, Henry J. Kaiser, Howard Johnson, the Shah of Iran, and many other celebrities owned them. The Mark II wasn't made by Lincoln,but by the short-lived, Continental Division, of the Ford Motor Company. Its general manager was William Clay 'Bill' Ford, son of Edsel Ford and grandson of Henry Ford. Due to the low volume of cars produced all the 1956-57 Mark II's came out of the factory as 2 door hardtops. A retractable hardtop version was developed for the Mark II, but when it became evident that costs would never be recouped, this mechanism was transferred to the Ford Division and utilized on the 1957-59 Ford retractable hardtops. A soft top convertible was also designed as a "fall back" to the retractable version. Two of Ford's contract coach builders, Derham and Hess & Eisenhardt both estimated a convertible conversion to cost $18,000 to custom build in 1956. That's why there were so few Mark II convertibles produced. It has been determined that only nine Mark II's were professionally converted to convertibles by legitimate coach builders. This stunningly beautiful Silver and Blue 56 Mark II is the last of the nine to be produced and thus has several unique features that separate it from the other eight. These include a stainless steel windshield header that took over 2 ½ weeks to hand form; a modern electric/hydraulic top mechanism; inside of the top is fully lined concealing all of the bows and mechanisms; the top "sail" panels are embroidered with the "Continental "logo. At the time of the conversion, the car underwent a complete "ground-up Concours Quality" restoration using only original equipment or NOS part sand materials. This is truly a "One Off" car that looks and drives as it did when it left the showroom. It has the unique distinction of being the only Continental Mark II convertible in Canada. Today the Mark II is revered as one of the best styled cars of the 1950s. Its good looks are timeless. It rides and drives with a grace and quietness not found in other cars of that era.

Making of the 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II
1948 saw the last year of production Continentals until a reintroduction of the line in 1956. This short film presents the story of the 1956 Continental from concept to final production. It is interesting to note that the 1956-1957 Continentals were amongst the most expensive production cars of the day. In 1956 a new Continental would cost $10,000 or more. Compared to a standard Ford car which would cost less than $2000.

1958 Continental Convertible (The name "Lincoln" appears on nameplate.)
Here is possibly the lowest mileage 1958 Lincoln Convertible in the world. It has only 33,000 miles. It was offered for sale on eBay, and I had the privilege of viewing it for over an hour. The owner was very gracious and recorded this video clip which shows the car and me walking around it while I offered my comments. In the video, I state that the car is not a Lincoln, but, as of December 24, 2011, I believe that it is indeed a Lincoln. The 1956 - 1957 Continental models, which do not carry the "Lincoln" brand name, represent a solitary, unique automobile make. However, the 1958 Continental, which shares its appearance with the 1958 Lincoln Premiere and Capril models, does bear on its nameplate the name "Lincoln" in script and the phrase "Lincoln Division."

1957 Lincoln Premier
This car was in the auction at Zephyrhills, Florida. It didn't sell at $20,000. Notice the air conditioning. It was fairly common practice at the time to mount the evaporator in the trunk, with air intakes at the top of the rear quarter panels, and cool air exiting through plastic wands and distributed above the side windows. The earliest car with A/C, a prewar Packard, had a similar distribution system. As systems became smaller and more efficient, the modern practice of under and behind the dash mounting became the norm for evaporators. Notice how big this Lincoln is...and the observations about what collector cars are worth. In the end, something is worth only what someone else is willing to pay for it.





1949 Nash Ambassador Airflyte barnfind 1st time driven in over 44 years
Come along for a ride in this arcane behemoth !!! It feels so satisfying to drive a car that has sat for so long and required so much work to bring back to life and restore to driver status. This kind of job satisfaction keeps me going. It's my life reward and passion. All brakes, fuel system, engine and chassis repairs now complete. This old Airflyte now purrs like a kitten and stops on a dime. Update: this car is a "Special Super", of course, we all know it it super special....Haha, it has special handwritten in pencil on the fire wall, but, I never thought much about it. Turns out it has been positively identified as a very rare 1949 "Special Super", no other 1949 special supers are known to exist....yet
