Since 2001 every Ford pickup ( except Ranger), has powder metal parts made at my manufacturing plant. For Ford, parts are in the tailgate and shock absorbers.It would be a minor crime if that solid red pick-up isn't sitting in some active/former/or retired Marines garage! As for me, I'll stick with my Ford F-150 Crew Cab.
Yes to that. The '58 Cadillac, my dad's white one, was the car I took my first driving test on. Imagine trying to parallel park that polar bear, all pimpled up and nervous. And too, how come Europe never followed our crazy 50s lead with three-tones and fins and record players that popped out beneath the glove compartmebt ('58 Plymouth I think)? And how in such a conservative, Eisenhower type time as the 50s, did the CEOs of The Big Three ever consent to turning their hundreds of thousands of employees loose on railroad cars full of steel and hammer out those wild and wicked designs the world had never seen, then or since.If we could only have 1950s styling with 2020 reliability (and body longevity). To me, most modern cars look alike. I yearn for either the 1957 or 1964 Caddy one of my grandfathers had. My other grandfather had a 1964 Dodge Coronet 500, with bucket seats and hypo 383.
