When an average guy tries to buy catalytic converters for his Ford Mustang in CA

Now, I know this is an old argument "the Hot-rodder vs. pollution." but there is a specific point I'd like to make. Why is it that you can't buy a used set of catalytic converters? I mean if they work, why not? Why is it that 49 states say you can buy aftermarket catalytic converters but CA says no? Yes, there are some aftermarket catalytic converters that you can get IF they have an "E&O" number on them which is an "Executive Order number." What is an "Executive Order Number?" I'm glad you asked! It is the number the state of California stamps on a "smog part" if it isn't an OEM part.

Shelby Baja 700 Raptor F150 Packs Supercar Power

The 2017 Ford SVT Raptor F150 will derive its power from a specially tuned 3.5L EcoBoost V6, but the 2014 Raptor was powered by a 6.2L V8 and that older V8 pickup is the one that Shelby American has used to design their new Baja 700 package – with 700 horsepower and an off road suspension setup that make it the baddest truck on the road and off.

2017 Ford Raptor and 2016 Ram Rebel Create Pointless Comparisons

Why Is It A Pointless Comparison?

From the naked eye, you may be thinking what’s the big deal? These trucks both have a rugged look to them and feature lift kits, suspension upgrades and large, knobby tires. Also, they may seem to both share a place outside of the “regular” truck lineup meaning they are ripe for cross-shopping by consumers. If this is your thinking, stop. You are only looking like a fool.

Low Ford GT Production Prevents Real Street Cred, Could Cause Record Markups

The official word has surfaced that there will only be 250 examples of the 2017 Ford GT supercar built annually for the entire world, guaranteeing sales success but also guaranteeing that this car will never pose a real threat to the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette or Dodge Viper in terms of real world performance credentials.

Ford Focus RS Will Debut in New York with Mustang EcoBoost Power

Ford Motor Company has announced that the new high performance Focus RS will make its US debut at the 2015 New York International Auto Show next week and with any luck, this grand introduction will include just how much power the hottest American hatch will produce with the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder from the new Mustang.

Revisiting the Mustang EcoBoost Powered 2016 Ford F150 Idea

Almost a year ago, we looked at the possibility of a 2015 Ford F150 that could be the most fuel efficient half ton truck in America with the 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine from the 2015 Ford Mustang and now that we know more about both the new F150 and the new Mustang – the idea of a 4-cylinder EcoBoost SFE F150 seems even better.

The 2015 Ford Mustang Saleen S302 Black Label is Ready to Hunt Hellcats

There are few names in the high performance Ford Mustang world more respected for their go-fast capabilities than Saleen Automotive so it should come as no surprise that the new Saleen S302 Black Label based on the 2015 Mustang GT is one of the baddest ponies on the block – with 730 supercharged horsepower ready to tackle the Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

SHOCKER! Truck Buyers Don’t Really Care About Fuel Economy

Don't believe us that fuel economy isn't the number one buying factor? Here is the proof.

Monthly Truck Sales

One of the tell-tale signs on consumer behavior is monthly truck sales. Historically truck sales rise throughout the year and due to various market conditions.

2015 Ford F350 King Ranch Review: Premium Luxury Meets Extreme Capabilities

There was a day and age where a heavy duty 1-ton pickup with dual rear wheels and one of the industry’s most powerful diesel engines would be reserved for a full-blown work truck, but the 2015 Ford F350 King Ranch is a remarkable combination of a premium luxury vehicle and a pickup that can do almost any work that you can throw at it.

This Ford F150 Based Bronco isn't a Real Thing

Over the past week or so, there has been a great many people writing in to ask if the 2016 Ford Bronco shown above is actually coming to market and while this F150-based SUV looks awesome, I’m unfortunately writing this piece to point out that the Bronco shown here is nothing but an April Fool’s Day joke that has been continuously drudged up by disreputable automotive sites.
