BY SASHA RICHIE JUL 20, 2022 "...The (8000) cuts will reportedly come in the Ford Blue division, which handles production of Ford's internal-combustion-engine vehicles, and primarily come from salaried positions. There are approximately 31,000 salaried workers at Ford currently." -Ovaltine

  3. Also this from Australia, but the discussion is likely applicable here and elsewhere, esp. looking at the current state of the Texas grid - -Ovaltine

    When I see a '67-72, I always think of the movie "Mr. Majestyk", and THIS commercial:

    For me, the QUINESSENTIAL "Ford truck" will always be the '73-'79 body style..... with my favorite of those being the '77: -Ovaltine
  10. Ford's Mustang Mach-E can lose power while driving, forcing dealers to stop delivery The recall affects 48,924 of the 2021-22 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles, which could lose power while driving or do not start. A majority of these vehicles, however, are already in customer driveways. https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ford/2022/06/14/ford-mustang-mach-e-recall/7622485001/ -Ovaltine

  13. Beauty's in the eye of the beholder, that's for sure. But I still think a modern interpretation of the Squarebird (with the awkward side lines and 'spear' details removed - agreed!) would exhibit some real badazz vibe(s). The ICE drivetrain would just be a nod to the retro-ish theme. We've got the next 100 years to listen to the whirring of appliance vehicle drivetrains. Let's have one last blast of some mellow "thump-thump" soundtrack before the party's truly over. 😉 https://www.hemmings.com/stories/article/strikingly-stylish-1960-ford-thunderbird "...Adding those two extra seats in the back changed everything. Sales skyrocketed, and the all-new, bigger, roomier and more practical Thunderbird became the must-see car in Ford showrooms that year." -Ovaltine
  14. How about a modernized, cleaned-up, adult four-seater version of the perennial 'Squarebird'. And an ALL ICE drivetrain - no EV shenannigans! 😎👍 -Ovaltine
