    1979 Ford Bronco Sells for $64,500

    $64K is a lot...but, it sure is a "time capsule" of cool from 1979....
  2. Wearing a mask and social distancing has no effect on our liberties.....I want the stores and other businesses open just like the next guy but I have also seen the devastation wreaked by the scourge of COVID-19. The main issue is, while I will wear a mask and socially distance, there is a subset of the community that wants to insist that they do as they please...and by doing as they please, it directly impacts my liberties to be free from this virus. My "car doing 100MPH" was an analogy of following direction vs anarchy.

    Decision Time, Aviator or not?

    From the article: Ouch....
  4. BRRRZZT...wrong again......you may have started the thread, but since it is here on Blue Oval Forums....it is their thread. Please continue to tell yourself how smart you are...you must really love being wrong.all.the.time.
  5. Too bad you just don't seem to "get it" (what else is new?) you've been around enough to realize that the moderators will step in and lock a thread when it goes off the rails...but, sure...you keep telling yourself how smart you are....
  6. Now THAT is funny......but, keep scrambling bro.....

    Hands down, the Aviator....
  8. Cue the moderators in 5...4...3...2....
  9. Hahahahhaa....acting like a child? Who is the one that keeps trying to move the topic....first it was "Cuomo is putting COVID-19 patients in nursing homes" ...when I debunked that LIE, then it was, "Well Cuomo gave 'cover' to his cronies that donated to him..." when I agreed with you and told you they were ALL crooks in NYS, then you try to switch the conversation to "its a great left wing/deep state conspiracy!" and I show articles from far right media outlets running with the lie that you wish was the truth...now you want to resort to name calling? Who is the child here?? ADD ON: "The Hill" website (your youtube 'source' for your expose`) is yet another hard right "news entertainment" site that is about as informative as the National Enquirer for facts.
  10. To the person that was bellyaching at the local grocery shop about how he was tired of being told what to do, I told him he should go out and drive 100 MPH up the commercial corridor main road because speed limits are such a violation of of his right to drive as fast as he wants.
  11. oh, but it is.....however, you keep telling yourself otherwise to make you feel good. https://www.foxnews.com/media/new-yorkers-bash-cuomo-coronavirus-nursing-homes Took all of .0002 seconds to find the link...
  12. Your original critique was "Cuomo is sticking COVID-19 patients in nursing homes" ...that is a lie perpetuated by the hard-right Fox entertainment crowd, it is just that...a lie. As for NY Style politics...here's a hint for you...they are ALL corrupt.
  13. Welcome to NY style politics....I told you I don't like the guy....
  14. Please see @jpd80 posting....couldn't have said it better.
  15. Sure will...I have friends that work in both nursing homes and hospitals and Medicaid reimbursements dictate how long a patient stays in a hospital and when they get discharged from a hospital and are sent to an assisted care facility. Cuomo was directing the assisted care facilities to follow CDC guidelines and ensure proper protocols are being followed, but it is MEDICAID that makes the call on where the patient is cared for. Next thing you know, Fox Entertainment is making Cuomo out to be the Great Satan due to his direction that hospitals and assisted care facilities follow those CDC guidelines..... like hospitals, you have great assisted care facilities and you have some really crappy ones, instead of correcting issues, it is easier to blame a politician for the failings of our government run healthcare system. PS: Thanks for nothing!!! I hate having to "defend" Cuomo, but I cannot stand flat out lies from some news outlets, be it CNN or Fox Entertainment or MSNBC....
  16. Living in upstate NY and not a big fan of Cuomo but you have no idea what you are talking about.
  17. I remember this from Ovid NY...evolved into Super Ford Magazine...

    How many Fords , or Ford trucks have you owned?

    I have one of those, but the weak 3.8L V6 got yanked and I put a 302 in her instead...much better.

    2016 6.2L Trans problem (STEALERSHIP!)

    My thought is, let them repair it and keep driving it.
  20. These sub-brand ideas have been around for a long, long time... One that comes to mind from 1974 is Torino, then you had Gran Torino, Gran Torino Brougham, Gran Torino Sport, Gran Torino Elite (different body panels to further differentiate it) Then there were the "SUV's" of that era, in wagon form with Gran Torino Country Squire and a base ranch wagon version. Then you also had a truck version called Ranchero. Moving to the Bronco line of 2021, you will have Bronco 2 door, Bronco 4 door, Bronco Sport (smaller), the rumored Bronco on an F-150 chassis, Bronco Maverick pickup. The more things change, the more they stay the same.....

    How many Fords , or Ford trucks have you owned?

    My list starts with a 1970 Ford LTD formal roof tudor sedan and then a front end smashed 1969 Ford Galaxy 500 XL sports roof after the 1970's frame broke by the rear axle which donated it's front clip to the XL. I have had several full frame (72-76) Torinos back in my youth, a couple of LTD II's, a '79 Fairmont (mom's old car), Mercury Lynx and Cougar in the 80's, a really nice '89 Ranger regular cab with shortbox and matching cap which I traded in for an '89 Aerostar for my then wife and then got her a '95 Mercury Mystique (without even checking with her, boy... she was pissed) after separation, I was driving my ex mother-in-laws clapped out '84 Honda Accord then a GEO Prizm (Toyota Corrolla in drag) and finally started to get back on my feet financially after the divorce and bought a 2001 Focus then a few years later traded it in for my first new car ever, a left over 2006 Ford Fusion SE V6...loved that rocket...she was a lot of fun. Traded her in for a 2012 Fusion while on the road for a promotion at work and racked up a ton of miles on it and finally traded it in for my 2011 Lincoin MKX which was traded for my current ride, a 2017 Lincoln MKC. In between all that, I have a 1983 Mustang GLX convertible that now has a proper 302 V8. Had and sold a 1976 Mercury Montego MX that I spent way to much money restoring and lost a chunk of $$ selling, then a 1974 Gran Torino Elite (lots of fun restoring and driving that one, but alas, sold it too) and recently, had a 1995 F150 4X2 truck that was worthless in the winter and upgraded to my 2005 F150 XL 4X4....there have been some other marques in there along the way, most notably a 1984 Dodge D150 4X2 truck with a slant 6 that was as quickly sold and a 1979 Chevy Camaro Berlinetta that I only bought to sell it. (only Chevy I ever owned).... Lots of cars and trucks, lots of wrenches slung and knuckles busted...enjoyed 'em all (well, except that Dodge)

    2021 Toyota Sienna Debuts

    I agree...since Flex went away, Chrysler now has the other two beat.

    F150 Tailgate 2004-2008

    The Flareside is narrower than the Styleside between the bed sides and therefore the tailgate is also narrower...other than that, any tailgate from a 2004-2008 styleside should fit fine. Flareside Styleside
